The Centrance HiFi M8 thread - Page 43

post #631 of 5057
I received my t-shirt yesterday, and immediately put it on listened to some tracks. The thing the caught me off guard was the blacker background and increased sound stage. The bass was tighter and highs more extended. Wow, this t-shirt sounds great. If the m8 sounds anywhere near as good as the t-shirt, then it will be a huge hit!!biggrin.gif

not sure if this will help, but here's the adapter I'm talking about, I use it on my Matrix Quattro Amp.

I don't know the configuration of the Quattro, but from looking at the picture of it... I think so?

Has it been 100% confirmed that the HiFi M8 will support the iPhone 5 without the need of the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter ?

 

Thank you.

A word of warning is some cheap aftermarket lightning cables only give power, and no data, so those paired to a DAC won't work.

We are yet to confirm this "100%", but we believe that you should have no issues. The cable that comes with the iPhone 5 carries both power and data, so that one should be fine. Eventually, we will offer our own branded cable as well, but this may be in early 2013, since this cable is so new and many companies are still figuring it out.

Really excited for the HiFi-M8, any news on releasing yet? :D

post #643 of 5057

I don't think anyone answered this question when I asked many pages ago.

 

The iPhone/iPod connected to M8 via supplied cable and headphone connected to M8 using the balanced plugs will allow fully balanced sound?

 

I asked this because CLAS db plus MK3 needs the additional RSA adaptor from dac to amp plus another RSA adaptor for headphones.

Michael, could you consider offering right-angled 30-pin and lightning cables?

Because the input and output are on the opposite sides of the M8, using straight cables would be difficult especially when carrying the M8 in a bag or a pocket.

 

BTW, my M8 t-shirt came in today. Very good quality for free! Thanks!

Michael,

Questions for you:
  1. Given the price-point you've chosen, are you having to make many compromises? Asked another way, could you make a price-no-object version of the M8 that would function/sound materially better?
  2. Other than battery life, are there other trade-offs in building a DAC/amp that seeks to be able to drive every headphone under the sun? Battery life is critical to me and this is a portable unit so, personally, I'd prefer a model tailored toward the IEM end of the spectrum.
