List of DACs that work with iPad - Page 42

post #616 of 874
Does anyone know if this unpowered hub will work with an iPad2 and an iBasso D7?

I am planning to use this combination as the front end for an iBasso P4 and Sennheiser HD25s (as a battery-powered transportable system).

Really nice setup!

Thanks for the great info!

Here is some useful information for anyone intending to use a USB-powered USB DAC with an iPad, without wanting to resort to a mains-powered USB hub...

 

The following "unofficial CCK"/ hub will work with some DACs using only the iPad's battery for power:

 

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.10.49.tCIUHg&id=15739202629

 

If the iPad is not able to provide enough power (I am using an iBasso D7), you can connect a rechargeable USB booster, such as the Sanyo Eneloop KBC-E1A. This works perfectly, and provides a very clean sound. I am currently testing the battery life, and will report back!

 

Total outlay: RMB 34 for the hub and RMB 160 for the booster, amounting to the princely sum of RMB 194 (approx USD 31) for a universal OTG USB DAC capability....

 

Current OTG rig:

 

AIFF -> iPad2 -> hub from Taobao with Eneloop KBC-E1A -> iBasso D7 -> ZY Cable SPC mini-mini interconnect -> iBasso P4 -> HD25 with aftermarket SPC cable.

 

OK, so it's TRANSportable smile.gif

FYI: New Ipad coming out Feb 5th with 128GB of storage, finally some room for non compressed music.

I thought I'd kick start this thread again (no funky external hub power, etc.). For a good while, ever since iOS 4.2 I think there's been a handful of portable DAC/Amps that work with the iPad via CCK (no idea what happens now with the Lightning).

 

But according to Shigzeo here :-

The new ALO The International DAC Amp works with the iPad without jailbreaking, without any externally powered USB hub, etc.

It also works with iPod touch jailbreaked.

The Pico DAC/Amp also works with the iPad.

May I ask what Cydia app you use to enable the feature. I tried Camera Connector but it was a no-go with jailbroken iPhone 5 using the lightning cck. Maybe it's only compatible with the 30-pin cck? Thanks in advance.

post #626 of 874

It may be possible that the 30-pin iDevices are the compatible ones. I will be checking it with my iPhone 5 later this evening. I used BigBoss CameraConnector for 99 cents, the same as you.

post #627 of 874

my T3 hub is being useless at letting me use my uDAC 1 with my iPad 3.

 

Thoughts?

Have you tried with iPhone 5 yet? I would love to be able to use it. 

post #629 of 874

Does not work with the new Camera Connector. I've not tried a lightning to 30 pin to old camera connector. I have tried lightning to 30 pin and gotten the analogue line out working, however. In other words, it may just work, but I don't have the adapters handy to check... and they are 1200 yen away plus 45 minutes there and 45 minutes back again plus the cost of the adapters themselves... I won't be purchasing them any time soon.
