No.

 

I've asked for what comes in the CLAS-db box, it seems like it will have the idevice cable, but the balance to balance cable will need to be made.

if i havent been mistaken, the godap x and the sony pha1 dont have line out like solos or hpp1 that let you connect to an external amp, am i right? if thats the case, that will be a dealbreaker for me, as im trying to use my ipod as a transport hooked to portable dac and amp that can line out to an external amp when i want upgrade in amps.

The problem with iPod as the transport/storage, it does not take FLAC or APE. :(

this is the thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/622939/the-centrance-hifi-m8-thread

preorders are coming out soon and they said it should be coming out around the end of the year

not sure about the line out- ask in the thread as centrance checks it pretty often

They do not have lineout, I asked. Now we need direct comparisons of all the idevice compatible portable dacs and portable dacs/amps.

FYI A Rockboxed Classic will not work with the CLAS or any of the other iAP devices. (It does however have quite a clean analogue  line out.)

That's good to know, glad that my classic is stock apple firmware and not rockboxed

Of course one can always return a Rockboxed Classic to the Apple OF for use with the CLAS. Just plug it into iTunes which recognizes it as a corrupted iPod and offers to restore it. All data is lost in the process so you resynch from scratch.
