The only reason stopping me from getting the Glacier is the availability of such a cable. I suck at soldering.

Yeah, to be honest I am also novice in soldering, and if you never try (even if you fail) you will never learn.

 

It was relatively simple to modify, and it looks neat.

I have the Hak5 shop cable, but its long and this looks neat.

 

I will try to help anyone who needs to modify it.

...Ah..one more thing, it sounds amazing.

 

The Glacier has one of the best refined micro details I ever heard from a portable amp.

@ObeyurMaster

 

You can ask Frank , from Toxixcable (http://www.head-fi.org/u/279519/toxic-cables) to make you one.

I will ask him to do one for me in the near future.

 

It will look miles better....

Thanks turokrocks.

 

I know there are two different inputs for charging and usb in. Does the Glacier charge through the DAC usb input? I prefer it doesn't or can be disabled. I don't my galaxy S3s battery to drain out.

By default, yes it will charge from both, but pushing the gain and reset, will turn it off (even after a shut down, as to charging from the DAC).

Brilliant! Thanks turokrocks.

Even with my Dx100 , I did not get such clarity and sound-stage.

I am happier with this setup, than the DX100, alas, no 96/24 capability (android limitation...for now)

Neutron with the Glacier, are giving me the chills............................

any comparisons between the glacier and the uha-6s mkii yet? They are both DAC/AMP, would be interesting how they comapre.

I was planning on saving up for a DX100 to pair with my 8A but it seems getting the Glacier and using it with my Note2 looks even more attractive now..

I do want to hear it!

 

It sounds like you are really happy with the DAC.  That is the factor that is starting to intrigue me about the Glacier. Having heard the TTVJ Slim, I am confident that the amp section is good.
