That is strange, I get 10h, but I think they where talking about using the amp section only, can Todd comment?

I think that's an amp-only run time. Using both amp and DAC with my iPad, I get less. Not sure exactly how much but more like 7.

Nice rig you got there. Love the form factor of the glacier, fits perfectly with the CLAS.

Guys i am having a problem with the dac section of the glacier, everytime i plug it to the mac book air, it does not register, however after unplugging and replugging it, it will register as an audio device. However once i start to play my music, the first 5 seconds of the track play fine then after that the music distorts and then cuts. Help anyone? I am using the stock usb cable but i doubt thats the issue. Thanks

The answer would be yes and no. No because it will work, yes because i have to plug the glacier in and out multiple times before it works lol :D

I just ordered mine and it should be here within a day or two.  Gonna pair it with my Galaxy Note 2.  I found Micro to Micro OTG cables at Hak Shop.  Anyone else by from those guys?  They are only $5.
