    By iDevice, are you referring to an iPad or an iPod or both?  iPhone??
     
    Do you have any way of determining if it is true 24 bit resolution or 16 bit padded with 8 zeros?

    I will probably go for the current iPod Classic. Those lossless files take up a lot of space. 
     
    BTW, I doubt the older 5th gen. iPods will work with the HiFi M8. It seems that Apple has ceased supporting digital out on those.
     
    Example, this FAQ from another manufacturer's dock states this in no uncertain terms :wink: -

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately you are right. I just tried my 4th Gen iPod on my M8. It charges, but no sound output from the M8. The headphone out of the iPod still works. iPhone 4S works fine.

    I did a bit of research. It seems that Wadia Transport is able to extract digital from iPod 5th Gens. Though older Nanos will need to enter "Extended Interface Mode" to extract digital audio. http://www.audiac.nl/wadia-170i-transport/includes/170i-Manual.pdf
     
    I'm guessing that this is the mode that we frequently see when plugged into iPod enabled car audio. So if the M8's firmware can be upgraded to do the same, I believe we can get Digital Output from older iPods.

    Was using the M8 connected via USB to my Mac, and playing balanced. After quite sometime it stopped playing music. Perhaps the battery went flat as the battery indicator was blinking. I thought it would charge through USB as well? Or does it not charge enough via USB if it's also being used? This is an issue for desktop use without the power adaptor.

    1. Both. Anything with an "i" in front of the name from Apple.
    2. No, but it would be pretty crazy if it was down-sampling then padding streamed audio. It is not the kind of stupid thing Apple does*.
     
    *By that, I mean Apple does different kind of seemingly stupid things.

    Thank you for the feedback. Anyone else had a similar experience?

    Mid August. We are waiting for more power supplies to arrive.

    USB does not provide sufficient power to run the unit and charge its battery at the same time. We are in a different category of "hungry", due to the complexity of the unit. The blinking light means you have a couple of minutes left before auto shut down. A power adapter is needed to charge if the HiFi-M8 is playing. If the unit is off, then USB will charge it slowly, but we recommend to charge from the supplied adapter always -- much faster.

    It is really too bad that we need to choose between LX and iPhone version !. Twice the inventory for Centrance and... Difficult choice for us !

    I have the iPhone version on back order since december but... Now i also use a AK100 as source. So now i have 2 sources: my iPhone and my AK100 with optical out !

    So .... I'm in trouble Since there is no M8 version With iPhone + optical in :frowning2:(.

    HEY Mr Centrance, Will you have soon an universal version with iPhone + optical in ?

    Can the i device version take USB in from a computer? If so, that would be a good solution to get the best of both.
