When playing high resolution FLAC or DSD files from my PC I can see on the DAC (different color lights) it's converting all the different formats/ frequencies (48kHz, 96kHz, 192kHz, etc).  When playing the same songs using Isub on my iphone, the audio signal to the DAC only seems to be 44/48kHz. No matter which format I play. The Isub player shows the right format information (like for example 192 kHz), but it's actually not sending it to my DAC. Active transcoding is turn off in Subsonic. 
My questions is if the output is limited by the Iphone itself or are there still some settings in Subsonic or Isub that I have to change.

Does anybody has experience using a streaming app and actually output 96 or 192 kHz music files.

I'm having the same problem. iSub says it's playing 24/192 at full res, but the display on my Oppo HA-1 DAC (connected to the iPad via lightning To USB CCK) says 16/44.1.

What could be the problem?

For the record, the iPhone 5s / CCK / iOS 8 combo DOES NOT work with an Alpine CDA-117 car head unit. Even though Alpine advertises a 24 bit DAC and iphone compatibility, apparently that compatibility is limited to 16 bits frown.gif

In case anyone has concerns I can confirm that under iOS 9.0 my iPad 3 and my iPhone 5 continue to work fully with my two DACs. - an HRT Microstreamer and a Chord Hugo. In fact all my music apps including JRemote, Tidal, Qobuz, can opener, FLAC Player are working perfectly. Apple have even reinstated Home Sharing although it is hidden well. I plan to update my new iPod touch tomorrow.

I was reading about this CCK over a year ago, picked one up, suffered the same 'power error'issue plugging in some midi controller....

This is VERY INTERESTING!! 

 

I thought I'd have to get JB and use a CCK tweak (especially on 4s), but you say adding a generic, unpowered (?!) usb hub to the mix andyou can have usb audio out?!

 

Can I ask for some clarification?

 

I thought the CCK was for MIDI in, maybe MIDI out (of iphone)... 

 

I'm plugging in the adapter now, and not getting ANY message (I'm plugging in a numark dj2go controller ) 

 

Am I doing something wrong?do I need a particular app?? 

Running iOS9.0.2.

I just received my Audio GD DI 2015 aka DI U8 usb to spdif.  iPhone is connected to it with CCK and unpowered hub and I get sound.  I need it to charge while it is connected.  I still don't know how to do that.  What is the easiest way to be connected to my usb to spdif and get power at the same time using the CCK? My aging iPhone 5 loses battery power quicker and quicker....

 

 

Thank you!

I've connected the latest lightning camera connector (MD821AM/A) to my Fiio Q1 and it works perfectly with both my iPhone 6S and my iPad Air.

I do not know Isub. But nplayer does output 24-192 and even dsd to external dac units such as the chord mojo or a fiio x3 (both generations) in dac mode using the cck. It helps to use a generic unpowered usb hub to avoid the power draw error. I purchased one of those for $10 on Amazon. I should clarify that only the x3 gen 2 can handle dsd not the gen 1. Of course the chord handles that also

Interesting, went to turn the GAIN switch on the Q1 and got the CHARGE switch instead. This instantly resulted in the dreaded 'power' message. I wonder if this information might help solve problems that other posters have had in the past. I'm not sure how but someone here might be able to figure it out.

The Mobile input is restricted to 24-bit/48kHz on the HA-1 as it was intended to be used stock (iTunes) with iDevices. This is not an issue with the CCK or your playback software. It is a limitation of the HA-1. 

 

Mobile USB Audio Input (USB A Type)
Input Format Stereo PCM
PCM Sampling Frequencies 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz
Profile USB 2.0, USB Audio 2.0
VBUS Power Output +5 V, 2.1 A

So I am trying to figure out some options to reduce power drains when using the CCK in my car.

 

Here is where I am now.  I plus the lightning CCK into an iphone 6 plus.  This goes to a "Cute" 2 port USB mini hub, and from their to a FIIO X3.

 

The mini hub reduces the problem of the iphone complaining that the FIIO DAC unit draws too much current.

 

But....in reality this configuration does in fact draw power like crazy.  I assume that the FIIO is drawing power from the iphone.

 

So....I was thinking of getting a car powered hub adapter.  Will that help and can it work?

I am finally upgrading my old iPhone 4S to a 6S. Up to this point I have been using the 30 pin CCK which plugs directly into the bottom of the 4s and going through a USB cable to a hub and then to an Aune T1 Dac/Amp. With the lightening connector, I gather that I need a MD821AM/A camera connector, what do I need to connect this to my Aune, a USB cable plugging into the connector and a hub?
post #524 of 526

From what you've written, just the MD821AM/A as it has a lightning connector on one end and a female USB connector at the other which will directly take a standard (male) USB connector. I'm assuming that you already have a simple male to male USB connector running out of your hub to fit the old 30 pin cck kit.
