Fostex HP-P1 Portable Amplifier and DAC for iPod/iPhone (Short REVIEW and Impressions Thread) - Page 86

post #1276 of 1285
Thank You so much for the hint to reset the iPod (in my case) when hearing clicking noises from the HP-P1!!!smily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gif

I had no idea why they suddenly started and had already tried out various cables, because a year ago I had strange clicking noises which resulted from a broken cable.

Otherwise nice review. I'm still claiming that I'm loving the HP for its DAC and believe that I hear a bid difference when using it just as amplifier...cool.gif

Question for HP-P1 owners. I really don't remember because i have several players so here is my question. I seem to remember that the battery in the iPod and iPhone charge when plugged into this. When my HP-P1 is plugged into the wall it does charge the iPhone as long as the Hp-p1 is turned on but when not plugged into the wall the charging symbol comes on briefly on iphone/ipod and then turns off, leaving the phone or iPod to run on there own power.  So it only charges the iPhone/ipod when HP-P1 is getting external power. Is that right? I thought the HP-P1 charged the iPhone/ipod always when it was on and connected. 

 

Can any of you check that?

I've been monitoring this on mine. If the HP-P1 is off it drains the iDevice. When the HP-P1 is on it charges the iDevice. Connected to USB power or not. I'm not 100% sure as my HP-P1 is always connected to USB power.

 

I do know that when not under USB power, the HP-P1 runs out of juice faster than the iDevice and it repeated connects to the iDevice.

Okay because mine will only charge iPod when hpp1 is plugged in I may need service or just deal with it.

Hi,
No, as far as I remember, the HP-P1 was not intended to charge iDevices when running in battery mode. Mine never did. The iDevice just shows a short flash 'connected'.

On the other hand, thanks for the tip that you may charge via the HP, never tried to do so.

Btw. battery time of my HP is three times as long as my iPod touch.

Thank you, I just couldn't remember. That is reassuring,

I notice my iTouch does not have a bolt in the battery when plugged into the HP-P1, yet the battery level increases.

I will have a closer look on that. I assume the HP needs to be turned on?

Initially when you power on the hp-p1 (with the ipod connected), the bolt will appear and then goes away but the charging still occurs.

Hi everyone!
Who uses Fostex and bid, please let us know equalizer on the player affect the sound during playback? It works for me. Is that the way it should be? Indeed, in this case, the player must play the role of transport and throw DAC Fostex HP-p1? In addition, foreign applications on my iPod is clearly louder than standard.
PS Sorry for my clumsy handling, I used Google Translator
