Apex Glacier amp/dac review and appreciation thread - Page 9

post #121 of 792

Cool. Maybe after more experimenting, someone can prepare a compatibility list on this thread

post #122 of 792

Is anyone able to comment on how the DAC-section compares to that of a MBP?

haha sure i am not doing that. The problem is, as i mentioned, slight noise occurs even I disconnected the source. An obviously it is not hiss because hiss will not be affected by volume, this noise does.

that depends on where the hiss is coming from and where the volume control is placed in the signal path

I solved the issue. I've just received the 75ohm adaptor, the noise is gone.

Adding 75 ohms impedance to BA IEMs is however going to have an influence on their overall frequency response.

I am not sure on that but I love the way it sounds now, especially with quite background.

Sorry in advance for posting without a pic, but I can now confirm that the hakshop micro usb to micro usb host cable works as a fantastic single cable solution for those using android tablets or phones to output to the Glacier. I'll post a pic later tonight smily_headphones1.gif

Great news! That means it will also work with my incoming Leckterton :)

I will be getting some other cables from hakshop, to see if they will work with my Apex Glacier (En route).

Haven't made it through the whole thread, but I heard the Apex Glacier at CanJam at RMAF and I thought it sounded great.  I was a big fan of the original TTVJ Slim and the Glacier sounded even better to me during my short time with it.  I was using my JH13s.

Thank you for the heads-up. Now you made the waiting more difficult ..wink.gif.
