Just got a Glacier and the severe RF interference is the only thing ruining the sound. Has anyone figured out a way to circumvent this? It's perfect size wise when stacked with the equally anorexic iPhone 6 and having to go down to 3G just to listen to music without crackles and pops (which show up in 4G use) feels like a waste of the hardware

I just finished charging the Glacier, I must say I forgot how damn good this thing sounds. Pink Floyd > Media Monkey > wasapi > glacier dac > glacier amp > JH13FP =

Thats a pretty busy pcb.  Quick question for the glacier owners when plugging a dac (that is powered on) line out (like the geekout for instance) into the line in on the glacier do you have the glacier off or on?  Does it matter?

  Well, now that the glaciers are no longer available, any recommendations =(

TTVJ slim? Probably not as fast and not as clean, but same signature....
Or TTVJ MHP. I have two of these babies. :)

Not simple to think of alternatives. I tried a Chord Hugo but its too damn big and imo performed sub par with BA iems. Amazing with hd650s though. 
That headfonia review of portadac looked good. 
ALO international? 
prob is the form factor of the glacier is insanely good.
