    The amp has some nice pro features it's really made by lake people . Violectric is thier consume branch .
    But passtrough and to top that buffered passtrough that's great .
    And adjustable sensitivity , that's essential feature is missing from most hifi for osme reason .
    Ground lift . And a choice between AC or DC coupling of the amp .

    Btw any suggestions re AC or DC coupling the sensible default is AC coupling as you blow your headphones with DC .

    Is the Squeezebox touch AC or DC coupled ? It makes sense to block DC somewhere ( there are CD's with DC bias rigth on them so the source don't need to be your stuff )
    Forgot to mention the very low output impedance without that a headphone amp ( or most other amps too ) is simply broken

    The Touch analog outputs have caps fitted; the output is free from any DC components.

    I had the same issue. Probably if you use the ipad you have to take photos with the camera at the top. When I took a photo of my setup, the photo was upside down when the ipad camera was at the bottom.

    Strangely im rigth handed but prefer the button to the left in landscape mode ( as it's the simpler chore to click the button ).
    I also exclusively use landscape mode on pads .

    It isn't an app. It is a power supply upgrade. You can have a look at sbooster.com.
