In short, yes.

We did try to apply the MFi licence from Apple, to be honest that they are too arrogant to get back to us any schedule , the process just pause and got not any reply from them. not phone number , you don't know who is response to the application.

 

and seems they have not interested to approve the licence to a Chinese small company. how can I said, and now Apple lose their magic and iPod/iPnone is not the only option to audiophile. 

 

BTW, seems that only few big companies get the new MFi licence for the new lightning dock .  and the best way to use iPod/iPhone will be buy a portable DAC/AMP which can support digital decode features through the lightning dock. I think it just

 

waste user't money because iPod/iPHone already includes a decent DAC chip inside, what they need to do is just connect the line out from the chip to a jack.

I can imagine this is frustrating.  Unfortunately, I feel like Itunes has its hooks in me since most of my music is in AAC format, so I feel locked into my Iphone.

Don't worry, our X3 support AAC, ALAC format . also may other will support the AAC/ALAC like the iRiver AK100

Feiao, don't worry about not getting Apple's cooperation.  Their standards are spurious and Steve Jobs never bathed.  Thank the hi-fi spirits I got away from Apple's megalomaniac clutches before forfeiting my entire library to their severe format restrictions.

Any other website I can purchase single songs rather then an entire album? Is why I like iTunes. Only other one I've tried is amazon. HD Tracks doesn't have much single song purchase availability from my look around.. :/

Sorry Craigster, didn't we go through all connection options ad nauseam a few pages ago?

Actually, my apologies.  I am good now.  I suppose none of the options are ideal and was reaching to see if there were any others.

Always difficult, being a small fry trying to get the attention of a large entity. I can't tell you how many companies I've filled out applications for work, and I never even get a "no, thanks." I'm actually surprised that FiiO isn't getting a response, because of how much brand presence FiiO has in the community.

FiiO has a lot of units out. They quoted it as 1 million. Which is a lot. But I guess being Chinese is a problem

I can confirm uses the 30 pin lightning dock or cable is not worth the effort or cost. Just use the headphone out. Tried on iPad Mini and iPhone 5.

Where can I order this from? Having trouble finding it for sale on a trustworthy sight.

Right now, the Micca store should be the only US distributor to start with.
