"I am about to order CLAS -dB with ALO balanced interconnect but looks like it's bit short to me.

I emailed ALO, and they told me that the cable length is 2 inches, I want to place sr71b side by side not on top of CLAS, would that work with ALO balanced cable ?"

 

 

Yes but you have to put the SR71B upside down.

Ya I figured out from the picture, I guess that balanced cable is ONLY designed for ALO amps.
Going to look for an alternative like Whiplash, BTG, Plussound Audio, Moon Audio, DoubleHelix, etc.

Many thanks !

Actually, in the picture it's the right side up if you lay it side by side. It's upside down in the picture.

 

I've long forgotten this embarrassing review I wrote :p.

Drew at Moon Audio is having a 10% off sale right now on the Cypher Labs Solo db, r, 720 DAC.  And he can make you a cable in whatever length you want.  I have not heard the Cypher Labs products, but I can attest to the quality of Moon Audio's cable work and quality.

I just bought a Solo R and Duet that I am using with my iPod touch.  Currently I am using a Cypher Labs single ended right angled mini to mini plug and the stock 30 pin to USB that came from CL.  I really love the sound I am experiencing, but was wondering about cables.  Copper vs silver on the mini to mini and if I should change the stock 30 pin cable.  Thoughts?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jeff

Save your money enjoy the unit as is. Although this my opinion .

I don't get this. Can someone help me sort it out, please?

 

I have the following rig: “iPod Classic gen. 7” + “CLAS –dB” + “ALO Rx MK3-B”. As far as I understand I have now turned my iPod into a streaming hard disk with a fancy (the original) interface, right? Well, why then is the sound coming out of the amp affected by the EQ setting on the iPod. Is the EQ applied before the bits reach the DAC? How do we know the iPod DAC is bypassed? Maybe all this is just a hoax to rip us of our money, no?

Considering the extremely short lengths of the cables and provided you use them in a normal environment without interference from strong electric currents and powerful radio waves, I would guess it doesn't matter what material they are. I'm sure few, very few would be able to hear any difference between balanced pure gold cables and single-ended common electric wire.

Good question and one only apple knows.
If the EQ is working and it does use the DSP
TO DO IT. And further more according to Dave
Of cypher labs. The bit rate is not more than
16/88.2. Either. Meaning the goodness of hibrez is not there
As I have the same setup as you.
It does sound great. I would pose the question to david directly
And post what he says here.

I have 2 Cypherlabs setups, on neither does the EQ on the ipods influence the sound (2 nanos of different generation)

Why so secretive? :confused_face_2: It doesn’t matter which one of my iDevices I connect to my "CLAS –dB", the EQ on all my iPods very palpably affects the sound coming out. These are the iPods that I have:

 

iPod Classic generation 7

iPod Video generation 5.5 (Doesn’t work with the CLAS at all, and I don’t expect it to either!)

iPod Touch generation 4

iPod nano generation 3

 

So, care to share your CLAS and iPod nano versions? Is there an official (or unofficial) list of CLAS compatible iDevices? Anyone else running CLAS with an iPod where the EQ affects the sound?

 

Thanks!
