Until now nobody can compete apple to sell their I Device and many audio industry make many

Support product for Apple as well .

And the SQ Also very good to excellent with external DAC

I am only disappointed with LIGHTNING connection , can not use my Lod 30 PIN
In properly SQ like before.
IMO


HERE you go rudi, you have everything else you might as well have a proper lightening connector for your CLAS.

I don't mind the Apple computers for there form factor and looks. But Apple's pricing and extremely bad marketing practises is what I really dislike them from a consumer-business relationship perspective.

But speaking of the iDevices, I recommend jailbreaking it if you can. Install Activator for free from the Cydia store and then you can have physical media buttons on your iDevices (i.e. play/pause, next track rewind/previous track). It makes in-pocket media controls a breeze without having to turn on the iDevice's screen. :)


The problem with doing that is once jailbroken you risk your iDevice no longer being able to handshake with the Cypher Labs/Fostex iDevice mobile gear

Oh really? Dang it.

Why would jailbreaking it prevent mentioned gear from working?

Supposedly, an I can't verify this as far as losing compatibility, the CLAS/Fostex DACs are supported by Apple iDevices which are sand boxed by Apple. You can't connect anything to iDevices without your company going through Apple first and having them clear your product implementation. You jailbreak and whatever you're using, CLAS/HP P1, knows it and as such the chips won't allow a handshake to the iDevice. That's been the rumor around here ever since the CLAS/HP P1 started gaining popularity.

A few facts:

 

  • Bigger = better.
  • More expensive = better
  • More drivers = better
  • Custom IEMs wipe the floor with universal IEMs
  • (Expensive) aftermarket cables will make a night and day difference sonically
  • A portable amp & DAC are a must
  • Hi-Res files are it; well-mastered 192kbps / 256kbps / 320kbps / WAV rips suck
  • Audiophiles can easily hear the difference between FLAC & WAV... even when riding on the loud London underground using vented IEMs or open-back headphones.
  • Only $1,000+ DAPs have decent SQ
  • Apple sucks iPods are ok but only because their UI and form factor are freaking great but in everything else Apple sucks
  • The more audio jargon a person uses, the more knowledgeable they are
  • The higher the post-count, the more knowledgeable the person is

There, I fixed that for you Mr music_4321. Here's hoping the iPod Touch gets a much needed and long overdue bump in storage capacity. I want a 120/160 GB iPod Touch option damn it. Do I even dare to dream of seeing a 240 GB iPod touch in my lifetime.

Only if you talk to Vinnie Rossi and bring your check book...biggrin.gif

Same here. No need for lossless stuff on my DAP,  so 64GB is plenty of space for just music. Video, on the other hand, eats up space like crazy....lol. But when I had my Touch I didn't put video on it because the screen was too small.

My easy listening set up :

Source : AK 120
Headphone :
Grado H F 2 first batch
Alessandro Grado MS PRO series
These two are very easy to drive with volume from 45 , all the detail coming out

Grado : GS 1000i
Need more power , I must turn the volume 55 to get the same loudness

SQ : those set up are very good for low listening volume , very detail and lush midrange

Source : AK 120
Amp : Sony PHA 1 as pure amp
Headphone : Grado GS 1000 I

SQ : Grado GS 1000 I need external to get their potential SQ .
From these 3 Grados above , GS 1000 I has wider soundstage

Nice thread! If I could get a design on a CIEM, do companies have policies against putting copyrighted material on it (similar to that of V-MODA)?

Well phooey that's a bummer. I wonder what happens when you jailbreak it that prevents communication with the external DACs. Regular 'ol line out dock connections work just fine from my experience.
