iFi Audio nano iDSD Black Label (TOUR details - PAGE 12 / TOUR participants - page 26 post #386)

    There are two things I don’t understand and these are:
    1. The BL has a male USB plug inside a socket? I can’t tell from their website. Anyway how do I connect this to an iPhone which is my primary purpose? Do I need or not need an Apple CCK and if I do does it connect directly into the BL or do I need a second cable?
    2. What is S-balanced? Do my normal SE cables work on this or do I need to rewire them to get the full benefit?

    Thanks in advance.

    The CCK fits perfectly in that socket and the lighting end goes into your iPhone.

    i decided that, since I have the LG V20, the DAC is already much better than cheaper DACs, so I'm aiming for for >$500 DACs like the Mojo or Micro IDSD BL. thanks guys for your help

    Dear iFi, why do you keep ignoring the question on the MQA device type? Is it a full MQA decoder or just a renderer like the Audioquest Dragonfly?

    I’ve also been wondering why they won’t answer. It’s not a hard question; it’s either a full decoder or a renderer only. There’s no shame in being a renderer only, but it would be nice to know.

    We somehow missed that one. It's a renderer.

    Thanks! I look forward to getting mine tomorrow between 12:20-5:05pm. Not that I've been obsessively refreshing the FedEx tracking page or anything. :articulated_lorry:

    Now, back to Googling 3.5mm TRRS connectors...

    Speaking of which, can we get a pinout? There seem to be several different ways to wire up a TRRS balanced plug.

    I have a set of headphones coming in with a balanced cable... first time to have a balanced cable... how can I - in plain english - determine if it will work with this?

  15. musicfan145
    Probably safe to assume it is the same as the IEMatch, but it would be good to have confirmation before I start soldering.
