post #1681 of 4987

If you want to test older iDevices for legacy compatibility, I've got several:  iPhone 3GS and 4S, iPod Touch third gen and 4th gen, iPad (first gen), iPad 2, and an iPad mini.  I'm part of the preorder already.

Michael - I would be happy to loan out a 5.5G Video, 6G Classic, 7G Classic, and a 5G touch (latest version) If that would help out at all.

I have a new aforenominated ipod 4G Touch I could lend to the cause.

@Michael: my body is ready. I mean, I have lots of iPods.

post #1685 of 4987

@Michael: I work for a medium sized software company and I am specifically working on our mobile initiatives. We have many, many mobile devices that we use for testing and I typically cary at least 5 tablets/phones (iOS, Android, Windows) at any time. I would be more than happy to run a HiFi-M8 through its paces if that would help.

I have a jail-broken Ipod Touch 3G with some 24/96 files for testing.  I am also up in Chicago a couple times a month.

So, in a short while, I may be requesting help from people who have the likely candidate hardware for these tests. First, I need to gather a list of devices that we would need to check M8 with.

also that later ipod touches and iphones can store 24/96 files usually via an app(but not output at 24/96).

 

My question above is above whether the recent ipod/touch/phones models can store AND play 24/96 natively via hifi-m8.

 

 

 

*i understand if mgoodman may not have an answer yet if he is working on it.

This would make the Hifi-m8 quite the game changer for idevice products If your endeavors are successful.

Got my TH900 recabled Balanced with a short 140 cm  "Symbiose" Coper cable by "Casque-Headphone" in Nice (France).  

 

( very good service, They also made for me a XLR->1/4 adapter and a XLR->1/8 adapter )

 

Now... I'm ready for the HiFi-8 !   Just have to wait.....

I don't want to be a party pooper but I just read your post about re-arranging the PCB layout for the LX model. It would seem to me that this product is in jeopardy of making a May release date. Is that a fair assessment?

Again, not to belabor the point, but I was wondering if the May deadline is still realistic at this point? Anyone?

With emapthy and respect for those who, unlike me, are waiting to take delivery, I'm nevertheless compelled to say that asking how long it will take for the water to reach a boil doesn't make staring at it any easier, nor does it make the water any hotter.

Or any faster....

I'm confused on where the project is after reading the blog. That's all.

What difference does it make?  It is what it is.

 

I for one believe that expedited effort leads to compromised quality.

post #1694 of 4987

Looks like we may get it in May afterall? biggrin.gif From the latest blog:

We added one last change to the circuit and finally sent the digital PCB to the factory today.

The raw PCBs will be made next week. We will be stuffing them the following week.

We are making 20 pcs.

If they work fine, we will immediately turn on mass production and make a larger quantity.

It’s 11pm. Time to rest.

From mgoodman: I believe he said before the 2nd quarter ends.
