That's not true really.  You do not need to use a MFI w/ iOS.  As mentioned a little earlier, you can use the Lightning to 30 pin and then the appropriate Fiio cable if you go w/ the e07k or another Fiio device.

 

Or, like me, you can use the Camera Connection Kit w/ iOS and most USB DACS (like the aforementioned JDS Labs C5D).  I've been doing it for months with my C5D.

Ok, so I got myself a lightening to 30 pin connector.

 

AAC /MP3>Ipod Touch 64gb>lightening to 30 pin connector>lightening to full usb cable>female usb to mini usb male>Fiio E17 DAC/AMP

 

This config isn't working for me.

1. Are you sure about Fiio compatibilty with IOS devices

2. You mention an "appropriate Fiio cable". Where can I purchase one of these? The Fiio website doesn't mention them.

 

Your second point "you can use the Camera Connection Kit w/ iOS and most USB DACS". Are you talking about the iPad, or any IOS device?

The M100 is overrated and overpriced. The XS is worth the money.

Yes and I didn't like them one bit. I feel I can hear the enclosure on them. To be fair I didn't have much time but they're not to my taste. Too flashy too.

No such thing. :gs1000smile:

Any idea if the price of the m100s will come down in the future?

I don't think so, if you're looking for new. Their old models (LP1,LP2) have stayed the same price.

Is there a general consensus over the best aftermarket cable for the M-100? Nuforce transient is an option but is quite expensive in the UK

Don't count on that... according to V-Moda they don't want their top model to get under the wheels but keep value over time. There won't be a successor every year...

Whoa, you went way overboard. LOL.

 

You should be going iPod Touch > Lightening to 30 pin > Fiio LOD (link below) > Line in on the e17

The other option, at least w/ my C5D (don't have my Fiio anymore) is to use the CCK.  In that case:

 

iPod Touch > CCK > USB to Mini USB Cable > C5D mini USB

 

This works with the three iOS devices I've tried (iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina, iPod Touch)...I think the only requirement is obviously the Lightening connection and iOS 7.

The first suggestion doesn't use the DAC/AMP's (the E17 in this case) actual DAC.  In ends up using the Wolfson that is inside of the lightning adapter.  The lightning camera adapter might work to bypass it though.

In principle the CCK enables digital output to a DAC. Unfortunately it does not work with the iPhone (though it does work in iPads, don't know about iPod Touch). Many DACs, depending on the USB receiver used, can actually be used in that way, they just need to be selfpowered (be it mains powered or battery) as the CCK delivers only minuscule amounts of current.
