    That's true, but if you are stationary, why use an iPod? There are many home devices that can output digital (ex. Netbook, Logitech Squeezebox, Mac, etc.)

    That too is what I don't understand.   Unless you are heavily vested in AAC, I don't see why having an iPod as a source is that great.  A Netbook is a great IDEA!

    I have my Acer 1410 Olympic Edition waiting for Jh-3A :)  I will have to compare usb input with friends Esi Juli and modded hiface to see if it helps.
     
    And just one question, did anybody already send them jh13/16 for modification?

    iPods are compatible with iTunes for starters, which provides great tagging, album art and overall organization of large libraries, plus a lossless codec (ALAC) for your iPod. But you can install iTunes on a netbook, getting the best of both worlds.

    Even though I agree generally speaking iTunes is a great piece of software, Songbird these days is pretty good (if only I can get the Lyrics plugin to work).

    Well... I called because I was curious about this, and Jaime just told me that there should be no difference and that they always shoot for "low profile" when they build the monitors. You basically just don't want the earphones "sticking out" at all, and my JH13's are just fine in that department.
     
    So um... what you say is interesting. I seem to have had a contradictory experience.

    The "Low Profile" style actually originated from bikers who wanted to make sure their customs could be safely tucked underneath their helmets.  Then it became the norm for the most part.

    Anyone here use the Asus N10J netbook? It seems the only one I can find with SPDIF out. Know of any others?

    Just take any netbook and buy m2tech hiface, you get much better sound quality.

    Has anyone used the M2Tech hiface? Also, with the JH3A we would need the RCA one not the BNC one right?

    All the time.  I feed my HM-801 using it.  I plan on using it with the JH3A after learning my MBP is useless without it.
     
    (I kinda feel that this is gross mistake on the JH's part unless they plan on bumping up that USB support to full 24-bit/192kHz).
     
    Its great though on the mac there is some driver stability issues that they are working on (it mostly works but it has paniced my system a couple of times).
     
    RCA one, not BNC.

    My apologies, Aaron.  The correct term would be Head-Biker...:)

    I was reading more on the device and I am throughly impressed. However, now that the JH3A is in new hands with delayed release I think I will wait to see if they incorporate the 24/192. That would be a nice surprise for us early adopters. I had thought the issue was time, not money to incorporate the increased bit rate USB interface. And if it is money, then I think it should be given at no more cost since we are now dealing with a delay. That would be a GREAT surprise (fingers crossed). I don't have MAC but is your MBP useless because it is only optical out?

    I don't think so.  Why?  Its not time because of hardware, its software that is the issue.  JHA would have to write third-party drivers to 24/192 and support a multitude of platforms.  That's makes no sense given their engineering expertise and size of company.  So don't bank on it (though I still think something that up-samples internally like the Pico would be an interesting way out).
     
    I can't use my MBP straight out to the JH3A, hence I will use a M2Tech HiFace (RCA) that will convert the USB signal to coax.
