Ive had a chat with Todd from TTVJ and he has some micro (host) to micro (standard) cables coming in which he's going to test with the s3 and put up on his website sometime this week (hopefully).

Can't wait to hear when that micro to micro otg cable is out, lugging around a micro usb cable and an OTG adapter is bulky..

Just receive an email the cable is now available.. but i was hoping it would be a right angle out so it doesnt stick out .. samsung s3 and note 2 are already huge

If that's the case it seems my short cable to otg adapter would be more minimal. At least I can tuck the cable under the dac and both ends are right angles.

HI All,

 

We do have a new Micro to micro usb cable from the CablePro. It is not right angle because there were none to be found that were reliable. Here is the link to the cable as well as a link to a 5 ft USB A cable to the micro for use with your computer to Glacier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the things I found that I needed to do in using the S3 with the Glacier was set the power to charge only from the charging port only and not the usb input port. You can set that by holding down the gain selector and pushing the reset button once at the same time. This stops the usb port from drawing power.

I haven't noticed any hum on my CKS1000's. This amp actually sounds really good.

Hey, how do I know if the Apex is charging from my S3?

The LED on the lamp blinks white periodically when it's charging.

Even when you're listening to music?

Yup if it's charging from your S3 it'll blink even when it's playing music. If it isn't blinking then you turned off the charging over the DAC port.

It looks like the pricing on the website is wrong. The decimal point must have been misplaced. Surely that can't cost more then $12. eek.gif

Hi Todd, 

 

Could we get an official compatibility list on your glacier page for a working range of digital in mobile setups? S3, Note, ... yet ive seen people getting ipods working now too.

Wow. Now THAT is a nice portable system. I was so turned off for so long by THICK stacks of portable equipment, but the Glacier looks so thin in that pic. I've gotta start going in that direction.
