Thanks KraftD1 for the help! It's right in the middle, around ~4.5 dB.

Hi,

 

just bought it yesterday while searching for a possibility to have crossfeed directly on the iphone and now find this thread. I added the MA900 and the Stage 3 and it works very good, makes a lot of songs much more enjoyable and is a very nice player too.

 

First I missed the possibility to create playlists directly and adding songs while I'm hearing but then I found a workaround, adding songs to the playlist in the apple app will show the songs in canopener too.

 

The only thing I'm realy missing is the possiblity to fill a rearange "input queue" while I'm hearing the songs in it instead of using playlist.

 

A very good app, thank You very much.

 

Regards Michael

(I hope my english is understandable...)

CanOpener app running on iPad2/iOS6, connected via Apple CCK, and ADL Formula2 USB cable to an LH Labs GO1000 (EM) DAC/Headphone amp.

 

24bit/192kHz native sample rate file.

 

A powered USB hub is also needed as the DAC draws too much power to run from the iPad's own battery.

Hi Michael, 

 

Thanks so much! Glad you're liking it.

 

Unfortunately, Apple doesn't give us the ability to create playlists, though we could make playlists locally within CanOpener itself (they just wouldn't be available anywhere else) — would that help in your case?

I still don't know, I just prefer the UI on the Denon club app so much more, I wish I could combine the two. Also, New denon headphones should be added. They're pretty popular.

Just bought out the whole canopener app. I'd highly recommend the pencil EQ, it sounds so so clean and so natural with the HiFi pack using 320mp3, ALAC or FLAC.
I'm using V-MODA M100s with XL pads, the sound coming out of it is amazing. I was never a portable amp guy, I love DACs but CanOpener gives me a clean sound without the bulk. It's totally replaced the need for the stock music app.

Speaker+ is amazing even though it seems the off switch degrades the audio as if they need to prove that speaker+ is better, could be just me. When I do gym I put on speaker+ and it fills the room more and has less distortion.
@devkerr has turned CanOpener from what could of been a toy into something that I use everyday and even my girlfriend, a person who could be less of an audiophile, agrees that canopener is better than the stock music app :O
Kudos to you! biggrin.gif

Thank you for Your answer.

 

Because I can edit the normal playlists with the standard audio app this is OK for me.

 

For listening music I prefer another concept, that of a temporary queue like for example poweramp on android has, maybe comparable to the Itunes up next list. While listening a song I walk through the albums and when I find something I add it to the queue and sometimes change the order in the queue or delete a song.

Thanks for the great review!

 

Glad you like Speaker+. Just to clarify, we're not doing anything to degrade the sound in "Off" position — we would never do something like that. On most of the phones it's plenty degraded already :) 

 

Cheers,

Devin

Queue functionality is definitely on our radar — thanks!

Does anyone know how good it is? I'm new to crossfeeding and so while I can tell its interesting, I don't know if its high quality. I bought it, if for no other reason than to support anyone trying to keep the iPhone a decent music player, but I'd like to know what I got.

I only thought to see if there was a thread about Can Opener just now, and to my surprise and delight...I see that there is - AND many a reply from Devin Kerr, the 'brains' behind the app.

 

I'm really glad to see the app getting some ink. I was fortunate enough to have met Devin a while back and worked with him a bit on this app during its formative stages. In fact, he used my Neumann KU100 mannequin head microphone (once owned by Tchad Blake) for some of the headphone measurement and research work that went into this app.

 

Devin's one VERY bright cat - we had some really good conversations about measurement methodology and subsequent analysis of the data generated, and I'm sure the release and subsequent tweaks have done nothing but make the product better, and better.

Hi devkerr,

 

I just bought the app - nice UI and sound!

 

Problem:  I'm using an iPhone 4S on the latest version of iOS, but when I play 24/192 FLAC files, I hear them in 'slow motion'.  I read on iTunes this was fixed an ealier version, but I'm on the latest CanOpener version and still get this.

 

Do you have any suggestions to fix this?  Or would it need to be fixed on a future release?

 

Note:  I don't have the HIFI upgrade - but I don't think it's a requirement for this or is it?  I didn't see it listed on the description.

 

Thanks!

So I accidentally found out that the app crashes when i have my music files more than 12.53gb (exact value unknown).

What I did was :

1. Using iTunes, I went into the app to transfer my flac files.

2. Transferring my whole files(at about 16gb), the app crashes when I start it.

3. I tried to transfer by small batches and then also transferred one by one to see the limit of it.

4. My final value was 12.53gb.

 

Adding mp3 files doesn't seem to affect the file size. The app takes a long time to load (probably it needs to refresh everything everytime I start it). And refreshing inside the app crashes it immediately.

 

And sometimes the app crashes randomly. The fix was to go way lower than 12.53gb. 

 

Can anybody confirm that this is only happens to me? I'm using iPod Touch 5th Gen btw.
