The Centrance HiFi M8 thread - Page 72

post #1066 of 5087

Would this device use its power supply only through the built-in rechargeable battery (like a mobile phone for instance) or would it bypass that circuitry & enable operating it directly through the mains when plugged in (e.g. like a laptop)? I hope it does not sound picky; I just dislike using batteries when I do not have to. Thanks

Smexy!

I would like to use my HiFi M8 with my Samsung Galaxy S3 as well as my IPad. Is the M8, a USB "Host" or "Client", USB 2.0 or 3.0. the Galaxy S3 can act as both Client or Host depending on the type of cable used. I read in a previous post that the M8 might not work with Android. Can you elaborate on the specifics so Android owners can a work towards a solution.

 

thank you.

It will work with the S3 and Note 2 out of the box. Other android devices would probably require additional software like USB audio recorder pro. iDevices require the dedicated port. Thats my understanding anyway.

Is there any way to preorder the M8 right now?

Can't believe I didn't notice this until now. URGH!!!

Probably going to get one of these; seems like the perfect iDAC/Amp for a person who wants great sound but can't have a fixed desktop/home setup...

I just bumped into this thread a few days ago and have read entirely through it. I am floored with the community involvement and open communication from Centrance. The Hifiman- M8 development is striking all the most important needs on my list in an awesome all in one solution. I'm strongly considering jumping on board the early preorder train.

Michael, any chance preorders within the next week or so can still qualify for the headfi preorder discount? Haven't seen anything about a cutoff.

I've just had too much fun following, contributing to and occasionally derailing this thread (not really on purpose, it just happens sometimes...) not be be involved with the pre-order as well.  Hopefully there is room on the train for you.

Just emailed CEntrance via the hifi m8 email! tongue_smile.gif

I'm going to tell people once I get mine that I designed it with the help of CEntrance and some fellow Headfiers...

Could someone address my concern that this device doesnt have an analog output so we could use different portable amp. Everything look great except for that. I am just worry that the amp part wont be as good as mk3 or stepdance 2.

There should be a FAQ!

It's a combo jack. The SPDIF out is the digital part, the headphone output is the analog part. The analog part is a mirror of the 1/4" jack. We decided against making a separate line-level output, because the output is so clean anyway, you could drive external amps with the output of the headphone amp.

FAQ thread please.

How long is this limited period? With customs and 20% VAT considerations it would probably still be cheaper to see a UK stockist if there will ever be one?
