My dang iPod is 8GB and it's filled to the brim, pain.

 

(Excuse me for cruddy English if it happens. I always decide to go on head-fi when I'm dead tired. Genius.)

I wish I could bring my computer with me. Unfortunately, it is quite large and unportable, and all around a pain in the royal behind when flying. =P And my iPhone is 64 GB, so it can hold quite a bit of awesomeness (albeit, only MP3 and ALAC).

Here's one. http://forzaaudioworks.com/en/product.php?id_product=54

Not quite. Line out connections extracts analog signals from a device (3.5 mm end connects to external amplifier). That cable extracts digital information from a device (USB end connects to external DAC and then to an external amplifier).

Copper/Silver Series Digital LOD made for connecting your device through digital out to external DAC.

Digital out = USB end
Line out = 3.5 mm end

But then wouldn't that mean it would be impossible to have a line out from a Lightning, because you would need a DAC in the cable? The original 30-pin connector was analog, but the Lightning is digital.

Did you receive the details for that project you were thinking about earlier?

I did get the prompts. I'm still thinking of ideas to utilize binaural audio though.

FLAC Player+ in the App Store. That should solve some of your problems. 64GB is a HUGE, I wish I had that.

 

Though it you are going for loseless, WAV also works. Without any apps.

Oh, why thank you. I was not aware. I am assuming that you have to upload them manually (not through iTunes)?

Uh, you plug your iPhone into your computer and go the "Apps" page in iTunes. it should be there somewhere.

 

I think that counts as manually?

Ah, there we go then. There does exist a Lightning to 30-pin adaptor, which would be able to extract a line out connection. But yeah...options do seem limited with a Lightning dock. >.>

Ho damn, that memory goes away quick with FLACs. XD Thank you for the info, that helped me greatly. :)

I have one. That is what Panda was talking about too. I am pretty sure that the DAC chip in the cable is crap though. ): Damn I wish I still had my Classic.

Ah mmkays. If you need crinkly sounds, tis the season for that. XD

Also I have a digital caliper that can be unwrapped/unboxed.

After seeing you guys talk about that one... I down loaded it too >.>

 

I'll let you know what I thought when I get around to watching it!

Lol okay, let me know what you think of it. :)

I already started on the second season. It honestly feels like a completely different series. Meh, oh well!

i believe 180.  ended up getting the silver.... but imma try to get a muses01 opamp.  so effin expensive though

 

Wish they'd have a e18diy.  Have a spare s3 collecting dust.  Gonna probably put cm11 or paranoid rom on it and maybe one day pair it with the e18.  

Jeezus, that's more than the standard E12. Why do they charge so much??? :blink:

This is not the Haruhi we were looking for. Some of us anyway.........

 

Guess any new related work is good news at this point.

Any news is good news, right?

I was considering it, but there are several reasons why I don't necessarily want to. First, because I paid far too much money for a 64 GB iPhone 5 to hold music, and it would feel like a waste. Second, because I've always used iPods and so the vast majority of my music library is in iTunes, all nice and organized. I'm sure that my music tags are chaotic beyond belief. DX Third, because I also wanted to be able to use whatever amp I buy with other devices. 

 

I'm sure I will indeed get a better DAP once I have more money. But at the moment, I think an amp is higher priority for me. On that note, <a href = "http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-audio/cat-recorders/product-PCMD100/">this thing</a> looks like it would be an awesome DAP. 

Yay, another iTunes user~

Lol. I plan to stick to Classics until they're no longer made and the Chinese run out of replacement parts for them... :tongue:


Yay, added another .2 days of anime to my MAL profile! All while still going out and doing stuff and kind of having a life! W00t.

I also finished watching Another. I thought it was pretty lame though, especially since my friend kept comparing it to Higurashi, but it's nowhere near as good... -_-

Well, a friend of mine actually preferred the cartoons over the series so I guess he'll be satisfied... :-)
