What iOS?

It is working now, after a full charge it no longer is giving me that error. I am using 7.0.3.

Try it! At full charge 100%, you test the performance. Then when the batt is at around 5% multitasking gets slightly laggy... xD

I haven't got the CCK yet - but tempted to do so. Did anyone manage to test iPhone 5s + CCK + AK10 and see if it output 24/96 instead of down-sampling to 48?

 

I'm playing my FLACs (192KHz) and DSDs (2.82MHz) with the Onkyo HF Player with HD Pack.

I would like to use the AK-10 with an iPod classic. I found a 30-pin male to lightning female cable.  I wonder if this passes audio so it can be used with the AK-10's lightning cable:

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

I doubt this will work (AK10 with iPod Classic). This is not plumbing. It is not just a matter of getting the right connectors and adaptors to connect up the cables. The iPod Classic lacks the software/firmware code needed to act as a USB master device (may not be the right technical term). In fact, even the iPhone 5 did not have this ability until iOS 7 was released. Strangely, the iPad's can act as such prior to iOS 7.

 

I tried the AK10 on the Multi-touch iPod nano 7G and it did not work, in case you are also wondering.

Thanks for the response. I understand the difficulties. I am somewhat optimistic about getting an AK-10 to work with an iPod classic because A. The adapter cable I found can be used for not just charging but syncing, so it's passing some type of signal and B. I have a Vamp Verza DAC and it can be used with my iPod classic and my iPhone 5 with only a cable swap.

I would like to buy one...
But the HK-68 store is very very slow. I cant get to the checkout process...
I am from switzerland...
Where can I online buy an AK10 for 299$ and in stock?

Looks nice... Wolfson wm8741 is a very good dac...
Good price as well...
But i think what makes the ak10 so interesting is its size!
I ordered one... Should be coming next week...
Does anyone know how it would pair with CIEMs?

I wonder if Vinnie is willing to mod this with wm8741?
post #135 of 328
Good idea...
Just emailed them ...
But i guess that the problem would be that the amp wont work anymore because of the firmware...
At least that is the case with a ak100 and ak120 modded with a wm8741 chip.
So it would bi a iDevice dac only...
