The Centrance HiFi M8 thread - Page 169
Gear mentioned in this thread:
obviously with a new product like the M8 "Just Shipping" direct comparisons are sparse, if not non-existent but:
During the M8 development cycle, has their been any discussion in comparing the DAC/Amp quality/clarity/design against the Dacmini CX?
Similar to how a few articles/reviews quote Michael G comparing the DACport to the Dacmini CX.
Yet the M8 can also be powered via an AC wall adaptor as well-
so is the DACmini CX "louder" a function also of internal power supply capacities/differences or ?
just curious. not a deal breaker to either product line for me. ;-)
thanks for the fast reply, I'm sure fellow users will begin divulging their listening M8 experiences soon.
I got a PM from Mike that Stacie is under the weather, I have been assured that communication is underway. I order it on Oct 19th and have not got a reply as well. I trust that this will be taken care of eventually.

> So no 3.5mm headphone out? Will this product be at all compatible with custom IEM's and universals that are relatively sensitive? Meaning is the noise floor quiet enough for no hiss and the gain structure such that the lowest gain allows for a wide band of volume control?
Yes, no 3.5mm out. But we will bundle a gold-plated adapter for headphones with the 3.5mm jack, so you would be able to use any headphones. HiFi-M8 has three position gain switch, with enough range to accommodate all headphones on the market.
Michael is the bundled adapter still part of the plan?
Or has this changed for units such as the idevice model which now has 3.5mm out. If so then I understand.
