Input configurations (two choices).

 

Hifi-m8 is for ipod/iphone/touch.

 

Hifi-M8LX is for AK100 etc.

 

A varied amount of android devices work with both.

he asked for the guy saying that both m8 and m8lx work with idevices to explain how an idevice works with the m8 lx. I don't have idevices nor my lx yet, so I can't comment.

Exactly.  I'm a long-time Centrance customer and  I'm very aware of the above options (I've purchased the idevice version with 4XL), but I'm curious how the LX supports idevices.

Thats funny, i was just fiddling around with my Hifi-M8 and CCK and was going to post these pictures anyway.snap.

 

*The pictures are from the idevice version but both versions share the USB-B port.

 

*Possible downsides. Apple may withdraw support for CCK at anytime, cables are long and not easy on the eye

 

Hifi-m8(ipod version), CCK(Apple camera connection kit), Flacplayer app, ipod touch 5G with latest OS7.

 

It works, but long cables are ugly.

 

 

Wow 24/96

 

 

 

Looking ugly below.

 

 

EDIT. I couldnt find my iphone4to try.

Sorry, I thought there was some confusion over 4XL and RSA versions. But upon re-reading MrSheep`s posts I see where i misread.

 

Anyway answered with my post above. ;)

 

kind regards.

Looks like a good solution going into the USB port with the camera connector kit.  Thanks for taking the time to share.  Much appreciated.

You are welcome. Thanks for the thanks.

 

Just need a smaller cable footprint somehow....

Iphone 4 via CCK.
I used 16/41 files.
I will try tonight with 24/96 files.

Yep..

 

I think someone should start selling a modded Apple CCK cable with USB-Type B output. 

 

How's the SQ difference with the higher res?

Great news ExpatinJapan, if your iPhone 4S with the CCK works with 24/96 output then I won't have to upgrade to iPhone 5S :D

post #4392 of 5024

Just remember the CCK trick is only for devices that run IOS7.  My iPod Touch 4G wouldn't work.  And Apple could kill the feature in any IOS update.

It's really sad to know that Apple actually kills good and useful features for their customers. Why in the world are they doing that!?!?

They try to kill they think any unintended use of their iDevice. CCK is for camera use, so why in a world one would use it for audio purpose. smily_headphones1.gif
post #4395 of 5024

Well since it serves a good purpose...better quality audio...why not??? It's like killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Apple shouldn't kill it because I'm sure they know that quite a good percentage of their iDevice customers (especially iPod) are music lovers therefore being able to provide good quality audio is definitely an advantage so why kill it. Just doesn't make sense to me.
