List of DACs that work with iPad - Page 37

post #541 of 870

Hi guys, sorry i didn't read the entire thread, but i just got this message from an Audioengine support tech about the D1:

 

"Thanks for emailing and for your interest in our products.  We have tested the D1 on the iPad 2 using the Apple Camera Connection Kit and a D-Link Dhub-H7.  It worked great.  We also found that the D1 was not receiving enough power when we did not use the powered USB hub.  I hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Sincerely,

 

Matt

Does the iOS 6 for iPad 2 and new iPad works with Camera Connection Kit as usual or something is different?

i can confirm that the Pico DAC/Amp and Pico USB DAC continue to work with the latest iPad and the camera connection kit on iOS 6.  wouldnt think the iPad 2 would be any different.

Thanks, better to know before updating my iOS.

Yep, I already posted this info not too long ago. I also think I spent some time visiting with Matt at RMAF last year. Or was it Mike...

Have you done any more test regarding CLAS 24 bit-perfect?

Unfortunately I've not gotten a chance to test with the CLAS yet. Currawong still has my portable gear (except for my DX100 & Go-DAPs).

 

So I got my CLAS back today from Currawong. It looks like the CLAS limits it to 48kHz regardless of whatever I play (24/192, or 24/96). This is both with FLAC Player, or with iTunes Music Player (AIFF 192kHz file).

 

BTW, I'm getting a VentureCraft Go-DAP X soon. Unlike the Go-DAP 4.0, this is meant to play natively whatever the source is (i.e. 44.1kHz -> 44.1kHz, 48kHz -> 48kHz, etc.). Let's see if this the Go-DAP X will cap at 48kHz the way CLAS does.

CCK also works well on iPhone 4S (Jailbreak + Bigboss Repo app: CameraConnect)

Hi AnakChan,

 

which iDevice have you tested? Do you get 24/48 or 16/48 max?

CLAS supports only iPad at 24 bits and iPhone/iPod Touch are always limited at 24/48 max regardless DAC connected.

 

Be careful, officially since iOS 6 Go-DAP could be in troubles.

Yes I already know about the CLAS and iPad @ 24 bit. It's been discussed since last year when I joined. The test was both on iPad and iPhone. As to whether it was 24 bit or 16 bit, my HP-A8 doesn't show what bit - only shows the sampling rate. I can only assume that the CLAS passes through whatever the file is except cap the sampling at 48kHz max. My AIFF file is 24/192 as such I think the CLAS capped it at 24/48.

 

As opposed to using the USB-CCK on both iPad and iPhone (with Cydia's Camera Connector), it's whatever the file was 24/192, 24/96, etc.

 

About the Go-DAP & iOS6, you may wanna be careful with the generic "trouble" there. I've been in talks with VentureCraft since iOS6 release. To be more specific, the Go-DAP (and V-Moda VAmp for that matter) still work audio-wise. So you still can play and hear music via the Go-DAP DAC/Amp. The difference is that the Go-DAP just charges the iPhone all the time regardless of i-Amp or Amp mode. VentureCraft is naturally working on solving that charging issue.

Any way to determine who is right?

I don't have any doubt that the iPad itself is capable of 24/96. Even I've even got it to 24/192 - but all that is via the CCK->USB.

 

However via the (my?) CLAS, then all I can say is that my HP-A8 does show max 48kHz. Maybe it's my HP-A8's coax, but I highly doubt it. Or it oculd be my CLAS but I bought it off Ken Ball directly last year after the Fujiya Avic Autumn show. He had it as a demo on the display table for the whole day. By that time the CLAS was already in full production for many months (i.e. so I wasn't getting a pre-prod, or prototype).

Of course David Maudin refers 24/96 with CLAS, so maybe better for you to check or ask them what's wrong. I'm still interested in CLAS but if it's limited to 24/48 no more.

My AIFF is 24/192. If David says that it's capable of 24/96, possibly my 24/192 is messing it up (although in my experience, if a device doesn't support higher sampling rates, usually they don't play at all - not downsample to something that's below it's max capable).

 

You may wanna jump onto the CLAS thread to ask other CLAS owners there. This thread title may not be so obvious to (other) CLAS owners.

post #555 of 870

I already tried to join that thread but nobody is interested in 24 bit and I've not received any answer regarding CLAS and iPad max bit/freq tested by users.
