    iPad (or iPad 2) and 24-bit files

      If my memory serves, at one point it was pretty clear the iPad supported only files up to 16/48. Both in file load and USB digital out (w/camera kit). The iOS FLAC Player allowed 24/192 (they then backed specs to 24/96) load and playback, but was still hardware limited at digital output. ...

    DA10 v. DA11 manual lock setting?

    As a previous DA10 owner, even if not 'correct,' I occasionally preferred the sound of 44.1 tracks when the DA10 was toggled to PLL wide lock mode (and upsampled elsewhere). Have looked at the DA11 in photos and read the user manual and confused if this manual mode setting is still available on...

    Apogee Duet versus PS Audio Digital Link III?

    Now that the Digital Link III has dropped in price to $699, and as most Macs have both TOSLINK (to get around the DL3 USB bitrate restrictions) and Firewire (the Duets only option), these seem two great 24/96 choices. Obviously, the Duet gives you recording options, a headphone jack and is...

    Apogee Discontinues Windows Development

    Although there are lots of Windows only manufacturers which no one seems bothered by, it's always a shame when a company drops/doesn't support an OS. Apogee Discontinues Windows Development

    Cheap USB to optical besides TBAAM?

    Any other cheap USB to toslink adapters I should consider besides Turtle Beach? Would love to keep below $50 if possible (unless feature warrants up to $100). Thanks.

    If Head-Fi runs political ads can we discuss politics?

    I know HF probably has no control over Google ad serving, but since the site has opened itself up to that lack of control and now running repeated Prop. 8 (California Repeal of Right of Marriage) ads at the moment (for some, likely geographically), do we have the blessing of the moderators to...

    M-Audio Studiophile BX5a versus BX5a Deluxe?

    Has anyone heard these side-by-side? With the older non-deluxe selling for substantially less ($150 v. $280 and up), curious if it is worth the difference? Driver size and W output appear same.

    Advantages of cue sheets over gapless track files?

    Could someone explain to me the advantages of using cue sheets/album files over gapless track files with lossless files? I see gapless file playback in more players than cue sheet support, so curious what the counter-balancing advantage(s) is/are?

    Best Randy Newman Album

    Interrupting the Best Radiohead CD polls for a second, as a previous thread indicated, I've been in a Randy Newman mood for weeks now. And that even increased around this holiday weekend with all the songs on America (Sail Away, Political Science, etc.). So I wanted to see which others favorite...

I've ordered one (with clock upgrade), but it's unlikely it will be received and impressions posted before the sale is off. Course there's that...
