So will this be able to drive headphones like the LCD-2/3 HE-500s?

Hi Erich!

 

I can comfortably venture a "yes" - I would be surprised to learn that the M8 can't do a good job with all of those cans.

Thanks Mike! I knew you were somewhere in this thread as I was looking through the gallery and saw the picture of the XP8000! :D

Anyone visited CEntrance booth at CES? According to the M8 Blog, it seems that the prototype is quite good especially the Tone Shaping feature. I would like to hear some impressions about it.

Haven't been on the forum in a while and not sure if somebody has already addressed this question.

I'm hesitant to upgrade to the iPhone 5 due to the lighting port connection. Will the M8 have full support for this phone?

Yes, awhile ago someone asked the same question and the answer was yes

Still haven't gotten my cool shirt ):

Apparently the shirt significantly increases the technicalities of your rig deadhorse.gif

Any comments on Today's blog post?

 

(A cut and paste below the entire post here)

 

"_____ listened for a while and felt that HiFi-M8 sat right in between DACport and DACmini in terms of its sonic character."

I was intending to use the M8 as a portable with very sensitive IEMs and then to be able to come home and use as my desktop balanced AMP/DAC with my LCD3s. Perhaps I am expecting too much?

 

Michael, when you have the time would you please talk about this?

No worries, a lot of padding available in the 3-position gain switch. IEM users will be happy.

I had it sent back to CEntrance and they fixed it, to some extent... It is still scratchy, but as CEntrance charged me the return cost (to Europe) I just couldn't bother anymore... Obviously, I'm not the only one having this problem with the DACport. So, in this respect, what can we expect from the HiFi-M8?

Sorry about your inconvenience on the DACport. We have a much improved, larger pot from Alps in the M8. We also changed the circuitry to avoid scratching, etc. I think we have what you need.
