    I am considering the micro BL to use with my iPhone XR and HEK and HD800s headphones . How would I connect this to my phone . ? Do I need the Apple camera USB adapter ?

    Also read a few reviews that state the first 2 seconds of a new track are muted ?? Surely not ?? If this is the case no one would buy it surely ..

    Any guidance welcome

    Either camera connection kit works. There is one with a USB power in so you can charge the iPhone at the same time, another is a simple connection cable.

    The 2 seconds of muting is only on starting music on the device each session. It doesn't return unless you pause/restart. It doesn't happen with track changes and isn't a big deal.

    Have you personally tried using the single port camera cable? Ive not been able to use mine for several iOs versions now, on both 6s+ and XR.

    Yeah I have a couple of them and they both work with the iDSD and DFR. I think the single port version was disabled for some time a few years ago, but I bought one of the cables from the Apple website in 7/2018 and it has worked since then (model number MD821AM/A). I think you need to be on iOS 12 and also have to authenticate the phone (passcode, touchID, faceID) to allow use of the peripheral.

    The cables break easily if bent unfortunately so getting it to work in a pocket with the DFR is a bit hit and miss. I haven't tried the single port version in a few months so I can verify again soon that it still works.

    Update; yes it still works great with the iDSD. @Jearly410 maybe your connector has a wire fracture?

    If there is one thing head-fi has taught me is that Apple hates audiophiles

    Which one do you use successfully ? I may take the plunge today

    Interesting. Mine was bought 2+ years ago (same model number) so there was a hidden update to the hardware perhaps?

    I use the fat usb3.0 adapter, one port to charge and one for the usb cable into the black label.

    You nailed it. Quietness in background and everything more visible is what USB sorters should do.

    Does one has to use it, if IUSB3 in already in operation in the chain?

    Assuming your 'it' is iPurifier2/3:

    Depends what cable is between iUSB3 and your DAC.

    If it's Gemini, then probably no.

    If it's a printer cable, then probably yes.

    @iFi audio Do we have to use iPurifier if we use IUSB3? I have an ICAN SE. Would it and iTube 2 benefit from DC iPurifier? They are already being supplied by stock iPower.
     
  14. iFi audio
    If we're talking USB sorters, then micro iUSB3.0 is the best one in our offer and if one has it already, then iPurifier is excessive.

    OK. What about power lines? If iTUBE and iCan use IPower adapters, would it be useful to add DC purifier to the chain?
