This is great news!

Now if only the nexus4 can do USB audio out....ironic that Google won't allow it while other manufacturers who are known to lock down their phones allows it without rooting.

Has anyone compared the built-in USB with something like the V-Link 192?

You could buy a DACport LX (or a Dragonfly) and have a better DAC for less money.

Except that the V-Link 192 is $200 and the V-Link 2 is $130.

 

Still, I'm open to suggestions smily_headphones1.gif

 

Honestly, I might just get the Leckerton and try its USB implementation for a while before considering upgrading, but I do have the Bifrost to compare it to so I'm not sure how much I'll like the DAC section.

Well, why not. UHA-6S MkII is on its way. Now it's a race to see if it, my LCD-2s, or my 4.As get here first.

 

 

And if it turns out I don't care for the USB I can always try an ODAC or something I suppose.

I have one of these on the way too, can't wait to try it out early next week, and comparing it directly to some JDS Labs gear.

Thanks.

I'm warning you, the DAC isn't going to blow you away. tongue.gif

I'm sorry if this question has been answered already, I have been looking through this thread, but it is loooooong! 

 

I have an iPhone 5 with the lightning connector. Are either of these adapters better than the other in terms of connecting to the Leckerton (or even an ODAC):

 

1. The lightning to micro USB adapter

2. The lightning camera adapter

 

Are there major pitfalls of using one or the other?

Thanks.

And if that's the case that's perfectly fine, I'll upgrade from there. For listening at work it just might be enough though, so we'll see.

Good to see I'm not the only one waiting on gear to pair with the UHA-6S MKII. I'm waiting on the Heir Audio 4A, the CLAS -db, and the Fostex Paradox. I'm hoping the CLAS paired with the Leckerton will put my mobile rig on a whole new level.

Sorry but I think both dont work with the iphone 5.  I have the CCK and it only works with my ipad mini or friend's ipad 4.  The CCK doesnt work with my iphone 5. 

 

You can use the the Lightning to 30pin with a LOD on the iphone 5 or any of the Ipads.  This will give it the Wolfson Dac vs the Circus logic inside the iphones and ipads.
