ios7, iPhone and Apple CCK - Page 9

post #121 of 440

^ Do these third party CCK's work as well as the original? I've had normal 30-pin to USB cables not working consistently.

Wouldn't a 'bullet' (cable-less, just plug back-to-back with plug) USB A to B deal be satisfactory and likely considerably more reliable? Do such things exist? They… they must, right?

This company in Shen Zhen did make something totally awesome and it's basically CCK + micro SDXC card reader with an amazingly small footprint

That means CCK does not have to be so large and ADIDT already figured out what to do with those pin configurations.

And another Chinese company could fit CCK and some NAND memory chips in this little package

Most likely we just need to find someone who could understand what we've been talking about. Then provide those pin figurations required for CCK and draw a very simply picture of what a 'bullet' should look like.

It won't be cheap at all unless we could get some Chinese companies such as FiiO to make a relatively special cable for this market. They already made their own USB OTG for Android devices and it's only 10 RMB (less than 2 bucks) a piece on their official store in China

And they already know how to make LOD for older Apple devices so I believe that CCK should be a piece of cake. It's just a matter of how much they could sell that for and what does it actually cost to manufacture something new with a different design. We certainly wanna support them since they're selling many terrific products with positive reviews. That's why I really don't mind paying more for something nice when we can't get that anywhere else.

I can also confirm that the CCK works with 7.0.2.

Here's my setup: iPhone 5 (7.0.2) -> Apple 30 pin to Lighting adapter -> Apple 30 pin to USB CCK adapter -> Elecom 4 port USB Hub -> Audioquest Dragonfly -> ER4S IEM.

The Elecom USB hub has an option to be powered by an AC adapter, but I am using it unpowered right now.

I am using the default Music app, playing Apple Lossless encoded CD rips.

This combination is... Heavenly... The Dragonfly has great resolution, which matches the ER4S perfectly. This combo has no problem driving the 100 ohm ER4S.

Honestly, I have no desire to return to the HP-P1 or my other portable amps right now.

Without the powered hub the dragonfly does not work?

A passive hub would do just as well.

It works without powering the hub. 

 

The combination does drain the battery on the iPhone fast, so I'm not sure how practical it would be though.  I was messing around with it for about 1 hour, and it drained the iPhone 5's battery about 30%.  This isn't a full on battery test, so I would take that number with a grain salt though.  I had the screen on most of the time, and was download things in the background, my BT and WiFi was on as well.

I'm surprised there isn't an adaptor that allows you to connect your iPhone to 2 separate USB devices (charge and play at the same time). The opposite exists though (charge 2 iPhones with one computer).

From what I've read, when the USB host interface is active, the iPhone disables charging. 

 

I wish there was something like a Mophie case that would allow a lightning port or 30 pin dock connector pass-thru.

That would be nice. Wireless charging maybe?

This might help others showing how to cable.  The DAC is the HRT microStreamer.

Thanks!

What does running the Microstreamer do to your phone's battery life?
post #133 of 440

The iPhone's brand new, so it is hard to tell.  The microStreamer gets warm but not hot, so there is definitely some juice getting pulled from the iPhone.  

 

EDIT:  One thing I really like:  When I pull the Lightning connector, the DAC/Amp turns off.  Very useful when I'm switching from music listening to podcasts.

I think the issue with the 24/96 output capability is in the iOS for all idevices, so I'm not sure that the CCK via USB in itself will gain you anything over the LOD output if the iOS doesn't support it. There's even a question as to whether the iPad iOS supports 24/96 audio data transmission or 16+8 zeros (padded 16 bit)/96 kHz.

What kind of digital output data support does the iOS7 support? Is it basically the iPad iOS retreaded?

Hi All,

I just wanted to confirm that my RSA Intruder dac/amp works with IOS 7.

It does require the CCK (obviously), non-powered hub (to overcome power error message), and supporting cables.

Cheers!
