very cool bundle. centrance amp/dac is very highly rated (more info [innerfidelity.com]) and one of very few amps/dacs on the market that offers balanced 4 pin xlr output with portability + additional filters / impedance controls

Got in on the previous deal with other amp. Very happy with it. Adorama service quick and excellent as usual. (Note, you will have to sign for it, which makes sense given the value.)

Just because I have a "thing" for the balanced amp, I'm a bit sorry I didn't wait for this bundle instead, but still happy with the other bundle deal (Got it in February -- it's been back once or twice since then.)

I hope this was sarcasm. Beats sound as about as good as $10 headphones ?

got my centrance Wink couple hours in - ! - not as powerful as iFi micro - but a sweet sounding - very neutral (all boosters off!) dac/amp / balanced out is a beast - ! - for a little time I played w/it - actually balanced benefits MP3s a tag more audible (like it!)

anyway - so far my new FAVE Wink 'll update !

btw - made in USA Rock

okay - I don't use any filters / boosters - my take is (and I'm not sure what chips are used in micro and M8 ? if anyone does ? would love to the info Wink !) and the cake goes : sonically to M8 but ergonomically (somewhat!) to iFi Wink

a few test tracks (studio and live!) I use have a dead silence moments and I was impressed w/iFI micro when I got it - but I did not know what silence really was laugh out loud M8 outperforms iFi by a little bit - but it's noticeable (well ! if you are paying attention!) / also there is a bit more detail - even in studio (have some Japanese super music CDs - which I was always considered flawless ! and they are ! but w/M8 took me to new level : barely audible studio noises (love it!) makes you feel being in record booth Rock

ergonomically - as portable - would give the cake to iFi micro cause no matter that both have connections on opposite ends (kind of sucks for portable use) - iFi has a genius camera kit connection which works out great ! w/M8 (for now ! have to figure it out Wink if I can do something to make it a more portable friendly !) I have to hold it in my hand or in my vest's huge side pocket (which I don't like!) / actually my best portable is a pair of hp-p1 and hp-v1 by fostex - really !!! a well designed combo!

anyway - for now - they both have nuances I can't get anywhere else - so both are great and both are keepers ! Rock

btw - iFi is powerhouse in comparison to M8 - even 600ohm cans can be reasonably driven on 2nd gain ! M8 I have to go to 3rd and I want more laugh out loud on other hand balanced out is a killer and a deal breaker !
