Michael: any updates on the volume bar?
The only `negative` feedback i had was that the volume bar on my iphone4 was still functioning which Michael said he would take care of in within the Hifi-m8 software.
My personal preference (which I didnt share with Michael on the day, sorry) is for it to be deactivated AND disappear altogether like on my portable amps, one irk of my Fostex hp_p1 is that visible volume bar.
We figured out how to disable the volume bar, but it has not disappeared yet...
Correct. Apple approval is required. Cables and devices are approved separately, however.
You can take that as a blessing or a curse. If our device is approved, but a 3-rd party cable is not approved, we really can't help it.
This was not an issue with unauthorized 30-pin connectors, but may become an issue with lightning connectors if iOS 7 ever decides to crack down on the unauthorized cables...
No problems. The design is modular. We can change the configuration up to the day of shipping.
We can't authorize field upgrades however, so once the unit is built a certain way, it will remain that way.
Field upgrades don't make sense due to the very fine components inside. There is a high chance that the something might get damaged if the unit is opened. So, we will not authorize field upgrades - they would void the warranty.
I think it's more of an iOS thingy...
Would you be ok if we simply didn't react to the slider?
Thats fine, its more an aesthetic thing, as long as its not functioning is the main thing ;)
Ah...I understand kokushu's anxiousness now. He likes it very much, and Michael told him during the LA meet that it was going to be just a fortnight away.
quick impression: I thought the centrance hifi m8 was really good. I was able to get it to play on my ipad3 and macbookpro. Its hard to judge at the meet, but from what I remember it sound as good if not better than the CLAS I used to have. Its also power my HD800 although although barely, but I do listen to music kind of loud. Its have about as much power as my stepdance 2 i think. I have it preorder and can't wait to get it and mess around with it more. Michael said it should be good to go in about a week or two.
