Need advice regarding a good portable that will play FLAC files..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi...I just purchased a new Cary HH-1 and am looking for a portable player that has the ability to connect to the Cary via RCAs and NOT from a mini plug headphone output.  Your thoughts would be much appreciated....thanks in advance.

If you are looking for a portable with RCA outs I think you're out of luck, I've never seen or heard of one.

 

One option that does come to mind is using an ipod with a custom line out cable with RCAs instead of the normal minijack - either a Rockboxed 5 or 5.5 gen or mini (with compact flash mod so it actually hold some music) or a touch with flacplayer would fit the bill.  There are other players with line out but not many people make LODs for them.

 

EDIT:  Looks like the Cary is a desktop amp, so any players that come with a home dock would be good and avoid the need for a custom cable.  ipod minis do (only ipod I've bought in a box - maybe they all do), and I think I read there would be one for the HiFiMan 901 soon so that might be worth looking into.

If you don't mind converting those guys to wav, there is the Colorfly C4

 

EDIT: It does support FLAC, but only up to 16-bit, fyi. 24-bit would have to be WAV, unless that was changed in an update
