Do not be sad, believe me, many, and I confirm many are so jealous for having such a nice combination...wink.gif
Most importantly we are enjoying it.

Hello, can any one confirm that the DAC of Glacier be working with the NEW Lightinning to USB connector with the IPads with the Lightinning connector? The description on the TTVJ website mentioned Glacier can be working with IPad using C.C.K. connectors, has anybody tried that yet? Any share? Thanks. smily_headphones1.gif

 Mine isn't burned in yet so I don't want to say anything other than it drives HE400 VERY well.  Personally, I only really believe in extended burn in when it comes to speakers that actually have a diaphragm, but I burn in everything before talking about it anyway just to be sure and so others don't have to ask me about it.  I do have a couple questions for other owners.  Do the internals of your Glaciers feel kind of loose inside the case?  Mine is a little.  Do you ever have to use the reset?  I've had to a couple times and am trying to isolate what causes it, ie plugging into wall, plugging power into computer, plugging into DAC, etc.  Just curious, although if the reset has to be used regularly I will be annoyed.

I had some good time with the Glacier, just so busy with work, holidays...

 

I had only to reset+gain once to stop the amp from charging from the Dac usb, and the gain switch to bring it to 0, but never had to reset it.

Please note that I never had the chance to connect it to my PC, just using it with my Note2, connected thru usb, giving me one of the best packages, as to the interface of the Note 2 and the SQ of the  Glacier.

^This!  Between work and the holidays it is hard to say much.  The small bit of time I have had with the amp, I utilized its' DAC straight from my Macbook.  So far I have tried it with UM Miracles, HE-400, Beyer T1, and LCD2.  Haven't had any time to sit down and think about any solid impressions.  It does drive all my phones so that is a definite plus.  I do plan on sitting down one evening and comparing its' standalone amp section with my other portables and I will report back with that.  I basically bought it simply because I didn't have a portable USB DAC/AMP anymore and wanted to cover that.  Turokrocks, do you notice any looseness in your Glacier?  Kind of like the case is just ever so little bit too big for the internals?  Not really a big deal, just curious.

Not really, I checked it now, it feels like a single brick!

Is there/will there be a demo tour for this thing, like the other Apex products?

post #209 of 792

Sorry if it's been answered, I looked through the posts but didn't really seem to find a definitive answer,

Has anyone been able to use the DAC in this unit with an iPhone/iPod?
