I'm not sure what happens if it's done charging charging it and you're using it at the same time. When I have it charging and it's turned on, the both the green and blue LEDs turn on and the resulting light is a light-blue colour.

nice thanks I appreciate it
Wow, I didn't realise how poorly worded my previous post was until now. XD

I just charged the C5 while having it on. Once it's done charging, the blue LED turns off while the green one stays on.

Does anyone know where I can get a short (1 inch to 1.5 inch) right angled mini to micro usb cable? I plan to stack my phone on top of the C5D and use the cable to connect them together. Any longer in the length and the cable will jut out from the width of the stack and render it "unpocketable". I've searched around on google and while there are a few custom usb cable makers, they are unable to make the length as short as I want it.


Tried DX.com?

Oh yea! I forgot about BTG audio. He makes analog cables though so I'm not sure if he had tried usb cables before. Will email him to ask. Thanks!

Will the C5D DAC work w/ the Galaxy S4?

Yes, the CCK bypasses the internal DAC and streams UAC1 (digital audio) to an external DAC.

 

This wasn't possible until iOS7. Proprietary, Apple Certified DACs are no longer necessary.

John, is it possible to request a modification where the micro usb is replaced by a USB Type A?  I would like to use this short lightning to USB connector to make everything more portable.

Wow. I come back to Head-fi after about 6 month hiatus and my wallet is already regretting it.

Been loving my BH for a while, but that point of diminishing returns has been leaving me lusting over a C5 which was released a month or so before I left head-fi for financial reasons (hah), and now there's this C5D, which will save me the headache of that rare time I'm forced to use my laptops headphone-out (I'm entirely portable headphone listener, until I'm home, then my montors are going).

Well look at that! I get paid this week!

What's that, conscience?
Christmas shopping? That's reserved for the 20th-24th of December!
Silly conscience.

Modding the jack would require a (minor) redesign of the board. Custom cables would be a better solution from our perspective, and we're looking into that.

If you could create a mini USB to lightning cable that is the same length as the V-Moda Tuono that would be a win.

Or perhaps a right-angled one to reduce strain on the cable. I purposely don't use my FiiO L3 line out dock cable because it kept getting caught on something since it sticks out so far from my devices. The L9 line out dock is much more usable in that regards.

The only issue with a right angle is the access to the volume pot or headphone jack.

So just to confirm, my 2nd Gen iPod touch (iOS 5.x I think?) will NOT support the UAC1 DAC section of the C5D? It's only iOS7 devices with the CCK?
