Since we are discussing the implementation of Apps and the use of the CCK to maximise the M8, perhaps we can consider the influence of various Apps in their implementations.

For example, playing through Audirvana Plus sounds better than through just iTunes.

 

Maybe even with Airplane Mode on, the various music players apps we use on our iOS devices differ in how they sound even on the same bit-rate and resolution? Be it subtly.

Here's a review to add all the other positives...and this one as well.. just in case someone missed out. 

 

I'm patiently waiting for the mini M-8 and hope it will be reasonable priced around $399.. less will be better...always better..

Great. I hadnt read that review. Good to see some measurements too.

Tyll said they don't have a lightning version yet, and it makes it sound like it won't support the new devices.  So I made a note in the review comments that the HiFi-M8 has supported lightning equipped iPhones and iPads since day-one.  I think he meant that they don't have a version that includes a short lightning cable yet.

Basically yes, but I think that's the one from VentureCraft.

Thanks for the info ExpatinJapan and DrSheep. I have an Apple CCK (for iPhone 4S) but I'm having trouble looking for an adapter to make it compatible with my iPad Air. Any idea of a lightning to standard CCK adapter for my iPad Air?

Is it safe to use via computer while being charged?
post #1153 of 1241

It is totally safe to use M8 via computer while being charged except that computer charging seems to be very slow.

Honestly its cheaper and better form factor to just buy the new one.  You could alternatively buy the Lighting to 30 pin adapter and then plug the old CCK into that.  However it would be about 2 CCKs in length and look totally weird.  The new CCK is only 5-10 dollars more than the adapter if not the same price.  The only potential downside is that the new CCK has a cable portion built in that could be annoying.

Does anyone know if a Schiit Loki will work with the HiFi m8?
