Well, it's not a DAC like the CLAS is for ALL iDevice products. Rather, its USB DAC works with jailbreaked products (at least) and 30 pin iPads at the very least. I just need to find a lightning to mini usb cable and I'll tell you.

Nox: great to see that newer iPads work too. I would assume that iPhone may as well but we will see. I will pick up a cable today. If it doesn't, all it needs is a jailbreak, but as we know iOS 6 jailbreak is slow in coming.

Very interested in seeing how this stacks up against the rsa Intruder...

Got a reply from ALO about iDevice support. They're not officially support iDevice. With USB camera adaptor on ipad, you can get digital out but it's probably won't work on iphone or ipod unless jailbreak. Right now, I'm leaning toward HiFi-M8 (M8 is probably 100$ more than the international).

Wondering how it compares to the upcoming Centrance Hifi-M8.

I'm sure the M8 will rock, but these two are very different amps/DAC for very different purposes.

I second that as i just ordered a glacier for my s3 and then stumbled upon this thread thinking i pulled the trigger too early?

What Cirrus chip does the Apex Glacier use?

How about the 30-pin to USB cable that came with the CLAS-dB? Would it work with the International?

Could try but I'm going to guess you're going to get the "too much power required" with a stock iPad. Even with a JB iPad, you'll need the Cydia Camera Connector app.

Well we'll have to use another DAP then xD

With iPad you don't need to jailbreak. You also don't need extra power.

iPod touch has enough juice if you go from camera connector and are jailbreaked.

Is that a general statement about USB DACs or specifically about the International? I can say that if you're on iOS 4.2 and above and you want to use a USB DAC via the CCK, you'll at minimum will need the jailbreak and the Cydia camera connector driver and even that's not guaranteed to work with all USB DACs.

 

With the International, I don't know as I don't own one. But since it's been explained it's not an Apple supported device, I'm therefore treating it as a standard USB DAC. If this is not the case with the International, how is this USB DAC different from other USB DACs?
