The -dB has mini USB and not the standard USB - just to complicate the IC issue even more. Would love to use my 64gig iPhone 5 but its not easy

I read before the fix that some had an issue with the Pico Power pairing, a way back in this thread but i have had no problems with the current product.  Got an AK120 recently and the size is nice but when that is not a concern and i am listening to regular files(not 24bit) i still choose the brick with the iPod/Clas/Pico Power.  I still think it sounds more integrated and less edgy.  Don't get me wrong, the 120 is impressive and detailed/layered but........brick wins by a hair.

Lol... The brick! Yea i think it should pair nicely with my iphone 5.

I rarely post on Head Fi, but I had to applaud the excellent customer service at Cypher Labs. David responded immediately to my inquiry, fixed the issues I had with my early CLAS dB, and went beyond my expectations from start to finish.

 

Looking forward to their next products, truly an excellent company that goes out of its way to make things right.

I buy a apple cable, and cut it to my lenth and buy a mini usb jack and solder my own.

Thats David. Had issues with my R on the pico power. Sent the R to David and he sent me a brand new configured unit. Answers emails promptly and when he's at the office, picks up the phone. Cypherlabs, great products, great customer service.

I just purchased a cypher labs solo from the first batch. David said he just wants to make me happy. Lol... biggrin.gif since it has low voltage clipping issues.
post #1435 of 1625
I thought the cypher labs -db sounded great! Until it started clipping at and losing channels at higher volume. Hard to explain but the sound coming out doesnt have that compress sound.smily_headphones1.gif
I was gonna keep the low voltage dac but decided to email David and he was cool guy!
post #1436 of 1625
I agree Dave is really cool . And the DAC kicks really well very detailed . I have one question how do you stop it from charging the iPhone 5 . Is there a way .

Thanks
post #1437 of 1625
I like the charge feature. Just dont use it if you don't want it on...smily_headphones1.gif

I believe the CLAS -dB always charges. There's no way to switch it to "not charge" but still use it as a DAC. Anyhow with it always charging isn't a big issue anyway.

post #1439 of 1625
iPhone has a circuit to prevent overcharging I believe.

Wow! This dac is awesome, i cant believe the sound that comes out if it.smily_headphones1.gif
