Audiophile-grade headphone amplifier improves sound of smartphones, tablets and computers.
CEntrance, a leader in Digital Audio, released the HiFi-M8(r) – a battery-powered, portable D/A Converter (DAC) and Headphone Amplifier that refines the sound of the Apple iPhone(r), iPad(r), and iPod(r). Pronounced “Hi-Fi Mate,” the device streams high-resolution audio from smartphones*, tablets and laptops, creating the ultimate playback system for on-the-go listeners. HiFi-M8 is offered in several models with various audio output configurations including XLR, 1/8″, 1/4″ and SPDIF Optical connectors.
“iPhones and iPods store a lot of music in a small package, but their sound quality is not at the level many of our customers crave,” said Michael Goodman, Managing Director of CEntrance. “We listened to our customers and together created the ultimate, portable playback system. The features and specifications of HiFi-M8 were crowd-sourced from the ground up. It offers the right package of flexibility, sound quality and convenience, and our field-test models are getting great reviews from listeners.”Read More »
