What sample rates does the optical out support?

 

Just 24/96?  or does it go all the way up to 24/192

Hi all,
Im going to get my M8 next week to pair to my LCD3 at home. However, I usually use my SE846 and RWAk120 everyday when i go out.

One stupid question: has anyone tried the SE846 with their M8? Any hiss or problems?
Thanks a lot.

I've used my UE700 iems without any hiss or audible noise at all. I have tinnitus tho, so black backgrounds are easier to obtain for me.

Thanks Kayza.

Hey guys,

 

Just wanted to see if anyone else has the same problem? I have had the Hifi M8 LX for a few months now and use it with my LCD-2's and HD 800's. I am noticing background hiss even on low gain. I run balanced and unbalanced cables. I knew that hiss would be a problem on IEM's but wasn't expecting it on full size cans.

 

Anyone else have this problem?

You might want to consider the low noise option for sensitive IEM, or you are getting interference somewhere?

Thats weird. I use my hd650 and he500 with the m8 as well as ie800 and re400. No hiss whatsoever for me. Do you have power supply plugged into your source or to the m8?

Seems a bit off to me.  I don't use IEMs, but all my headphones run dead quiet.  What impedance/gain settings do you run at?

post #1255 of 1257

Hey guys,

 

Even unplugged (i.e. only running on the battery power)

 

Gain on low medium or high same results.

 

I am not using sensitive IEM's, HD800 and LCD2's

 

Can't think of any interference path. I am running and ipod and also mac pro with audirvana+

 

Just wanted to see if anyone else had this problem before i contacted my local dealer about it.

On mine the only noise I can ear, wearing a pair of iems, is when I turn the volume knob, other than that, silent, I think you should ask for assistance
