I suppose, like with other portable DACs, you need an OTG Lightning to USB-C cable ..there are some short or long on aliexpress

Guys, be careful with aftermarket lightning cables. We are hearing mixed reviews. Besides, Apple could disable them at any moment by issuing an IOS update. This cable may work, but we recommend the Lightning to USB3 adaptor. It works reliably.

As a weird update since I received mine this week: I have to use two USB C cables to ensure this stays on. Even though the "charge" switch is set to On (allows the V2 to charge while using USB-C through the data port), it won't stay on longer than a minute if only one cable is in. Very odd.
Please kindly reach out to us and we will help troubleshoot it. Haven't heard of any battery issues, so hopefully it's just a simple setup issue. But in any case, we will make it right.

Unfortunately .. it's incompatible with a microSD Usb-c adapter .. If BT was LDAC 990bkps and limited to 320Kbps, it would have been a nice option for overseas travel Centrance M8v2 <=> Galaxy Z fold 2 (1Tb of hires files & Qobuz) with samsung wireless 10000mah 25W battery pack. :o2smile:
Can you get a paired connection at all?

I'm 1661, hadn't heard either. Send an email to CEntrance-i did last night, and Michael had them check, then move me up to get it soon. I think they've lost track of some orders (I sent my email purchase confirmation).
We have not lost track, we are going by the order list. Having said that, a couple of people have pleaded with us for expedited shipping, as they were leaving the country, got divorced and had to move, etc. We try to accommodate but we also respect the original cue. We are processing about 10 units per day now, really hoping to clear the remaining cue in 2-3 weeks. Will send another mass email after we have contacted everyone on the order list, to see if anyone still feels neglected (spam folder is a possibility). We will clear this up.

Can you get a paired connection at all?

I am waiting for the amp (within this week probably) ...
I have no doubt I will get a paired connection between the Galaxy Z Fold2 and the M8 V2 ... but, just it will be limited to 320kbps and not Hires 24b/96kHz with a 990Kbps LDAC Bluetooth.

It won't be a big deal, as basically AAC is not terrific, but it could be better with LDAC, but on the way AAC does the job anyway.

My order number was 1645. What shipping service was used for yours? I haven't seen anything direct from CEntrance but wonder if I may have received a carrier notification email.

Finally! This thing is awesome. I just fired it to see how it sounds while charging it up and it was worth the weight. Right now I’m doing some listening with my LCD-4Z’s and I’m on high gain, with bass and treble boost on and I like what I’m hearing. I started my listening with Bluetooth and while it’s good, wired is so much better. More to come......

Hmm...I think it's because I had an earlier order that was cancelled by myself and was reopened later (2 or 3 months maybe)
So the order number is higher but in the cue I still have an old place (thanks to centrance :)
Sorry for complicated situation. Do not pay attention on my order number
