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!

Fantastic news, indeed.  I really look forward to the M8, because Oscar the Grouch gets bored simply being a charging cable:

Just bought a refurb. 64GB iPod Touch and a Hifiman balanced cable for the M8 and the HE500's tongue.gif

I bought an Itouch 64gb & some some ALO silver cable to go with M8. To excite things a little more, I also ordered Twag 3 cable for Sm64 and Tralucent 1 plus 2 IEM combo with Silver and Gold cable. This is to ensure that the system is up on par to befit the M8 on this special occasion in May. All efforts are not spare for this preparations, including 2-3 times of mediation per day to prepare mentally.tongue_smile.gif

Buying a 64gb iPod Touch to use instead of my iPhone.

Also planning on buying a LOD and a full-sized headphone..

 

LCD2 maybe?!

Question: Will using a "high grade / Expensive" ipod USB cable make differences to the sound quality?

I have also been getting a few things ready to prepare for the M8.

 

I am going to use my 7G classic and 5G touch for mobile sources with the M8. I have ordered a balanced Skuld 8 cable from Norse Audio to tie the M8 to the LCD-2's. And then also a Norse Skuld 8 XLR to 1/4 adapter for single ended use with the M8 or Dacmini. Also have a short 4" lightning to USB for the 5G touch/M8.

 

I have also terminated one of my CIEM cables to balanced XLR to give it a go with the M8. If the CIEM's work well balanced, I will terminate both of my Heir Magnus cables to balanced XLR for the M8. 

 

Tick - tock...LOL

If the M8 is really a mini-DACmini like Michael said, then yeah the LCD-2's will be a good match. And the HE500 too

Oh dear. Not this can of worms. :)

There are highly passionate discussions of this all over head-fi. Seek and ye shall fynde these ancient battles.

Tomorrow, stand by for a very attractive, limited-time announcement.

Whatever that means!

post #1768 of 5057

I hope someone ends up making short interconnect style cables for the regular USB input. All I seem to find are printer cables rolleyes.gif

 

A short USB-B to Micro B cable with host/OTG capability would be perfect. Angled USB-B cables seem to be really uncommon as well.

Anxiously awaiting that special announcement!

The HiFi-M8 preorder needs to come with a full-size poster of the woman in the ad wink_face.gif

Production issues on rubber bands. HiFi-M8 delayed to Q4
