Centrance Hifi-M8 and Hifi-M8 LX (8 versions!) impressions thread - Page 88

post #1306 of 1308

btw, any other amp recommendation for the K10?

I already have a C5D, but I want to know whether other amps will make it sound better,

and also will there be any hiss when paired with hi-fi m8?

(posted in other thread but no reply)

Also have a Geek Out Special Edition, hooked to the same PC, don't have the same issue. I wrote back when the problem was back, haven't heard back. Anyone have any idea what it could be? Could it be some setting problem I have somewhere, that I can change. I've installed and reinstalled the CEntrance drivers (though didn't do it again this go round).
Appreciate any help,thanks.
I have had the exact issue you described with my iPod Touch 5g. My M8 sounds fine w/ my Mac Mini PC and iPhone
6+ but I can consistently get those vinyl like blips that annoy the %#@$ outta me. I sent my M8 in and they swapped the volume pot for me because of the scratchy sound it made when adjusting the volume but no luck with iPod Touch 5g pairing. I thought it was due to my "iem modification" but it seems not now.

I sent it back to them twice, told me it was fine, did exactly the same thing when connected to my PC again. I think this has sometimes to do with settings/sample rates, stuff like that, But for the life of me I was never able to get it right, just stopped using it (should sell one of these days).
