CEntrance HiFi-M8 (XL4)

$ 699.99


HiFi-M8 is a USB DAC and an audiophile sound card for your iPhone, iPad and iPod. It extracts digital audio from computers and Apple's portable devices and converts it to analog, for purest sound reproduction.

HiFi-M8 is also a powerful headphone amplifier with balanced outputs. Gone are the days when you needed to carry a separate DAC, Amp and a battery. HiFi-M8 has all components built-in and carefully matched to preserve sonic fidelity.

HiFi-M8 enables audiophile on-the-go listening by combining 24-bit/192kHz audio quality, over 6 hours of battery life, balanced headphone output and multiple sonic shaping features within a single, integrated, portable device.


HiFi-M8 is a highly flexible product with two input options (M8 and M8 LX). If you don't use an iPhone, pick the LX, which replaces iDevice input with an optical TOSLINK (SPDIF) input — perfect for people who use a DAP, such as AK-100.

The four output options (4XL, RSA, CMB, PRO) offer a broad selection of jacks, ensuring compatibility with a wide variety of headphones. Two input options by four output options makes eight different models! That's flexibility.
