Thanks guys ...ill look into these models ..yeah and I dont know what I was thinking with the er4s and glacier :P 

 

I have been looking at 1964ears V3 ...read the review by John G. Anyone here ever use that model with glacier ?

Just got a Glacier and the severe RF interference is the only thing ruining the sound. Has anyone figured out a way to circumvent this? It's perfect size wise when stacked with the equally anorexic iPhone 6 and having to go down to 3G just to listen to music without crackles and pops (which show up in 4G use) feels like a waste of the hardware

I wonder if something like this will work or not :-

Just ordered the last Glacier.  I assume there should be more coming, can't wait to receive it again.

Update there will be no more Glaciers.  Todd and Pete will be focusing on high end desktop amps and they have no plans for a new portable amp.  It is a sad day indeed.....

I just finished charging the Glacier, I must say I forgot how damn good this thing sounds. Pink Floyd > Media Monkey > wasapi > glacier dac > glacier amp > JH13FP = :ksc75smile::L3000:

Thats a pretty busy pcb.  Quick question for the glacier owners when plugging a dac (that is powered on) line out (like the geekout for instance) into the line in on the glacier do you have the glacier off or on?  Does it matter?

Don't think it makes any difference, but I would probably have it turned on.

I wonder if Pete hand solders everything?  That pcb is certainly impressive.
