Until then its probably easier just to buy a another ipod touch 4G, sonically i doubt theres much difference if any when using via usb with the hifim8.

 

I'm debating my next iPod Touch choice too.  My spidey senses tell me that higher bit rate support will come with IOS7 and others going forward.  But sadly the 4th gen iPod won't run it.  Apple's refurb center has great deals on the 4th gens, but if Apple does go 24/96, I fear those Touches won't benefit.

 

Pure speculation though

If you are interested please PM head-fier QUSP for more details (including price).

 

It can be used for ipod to Hifi-m8 but may need to be slightly longer. The usb-lod that will come with the Hifi-m8 is good quality though.

The LX M8 has USB input as well.

No feature, per se, that I know of.  They're both 24/192 data resolution to the DAC.  S/PDIF is generally touted over the USB port as the better quality digital input data, however, asynchronous or no. Try them both and see which is the preferable sound for you with your setup, assuming that you can discern a difference.

I asked a similar question in post #2362 a few days ago, and Mr. Goodman was kind enough to reply.

Yes, it may be like your Cadillac wink.gif We are measuring the discharge profile now, hopefully it will be relatively linear, but I agree, this tweakmanship may be going a bit to far...

Photos taken with my Lumia 920
post #2425 of 5050

tjcheong - thank you for these photos!  They really show the size and scale well.  It is very slightly bigger than I gathered from other shots.  For my use, not an issue at all, in fact kind of welcome, as the cables won't push it around.  It looks to have enough volume and mass to hold its own.  Thank you again - very nice photos!

We are locking things in next week if we haven't done so already and Stacie will be in touch with everyone who is getting a unit.

Hi, was looking at this thread but could not find an answer.

 

Is the max power 1.5W @ 50ohm? 

Is that the case for both balanced and unbalanced?

Definitely waiting for impressions on the final product. If the general opinion is that it SQ is a clear winner/on par with the DACmini I'll be pretty sad cause I just got it. I'll just console myself by saying I need RCA inputs/outputs more than a battery to make it portable.
