Sorry for long silence, guys. I have to put in a lot of time at the lab these days... It's exciting and challenging at once.
It feels a little bit like war, but we are winning. The good news is that we have no casualties, and are gaining ground every day :)
I think that ultimately it will be an application-related call between DACmini CX and HiFi-M8. They will be more similar than different. However, keep in mind that DACmini will still give you a little more output power, as it relies on wall power. HiFi-M8 on the other hand will give you tone shaping and iPhone capability, aside from the obvious benefit of internal battery power. So that's the difference in a nutshell.
very glad to hear this, and looks like I made the right choice with sticking to the Hifi-M8 for my uses. Can't wait to use it!
