You can also use the camera kit for an ipad to create a high-resolution audio system.
tons of info on the squeezebox forums. http://forums.slimdevices.com/
I have got flac (locally stored on the ipad) to play fine, but I have never gotten streamed flac from the Logitech Media Server to stay "flac". The LMS always converts it to the MP3 stream before sending it to Ipeng and Squeezepad. This happens both with the analog output, headset output, and digital output via USB camera kit.
Clearly there are some settings I need to adjust. Do you know what they are?
I've searched for every mention of ipeng in the 3rd party player section of the Slimdevices forum since 2011 and I haven't found anyone who succeeded in playing anything other than the converted flac -> mp3 stream on their iDevice. But I would LOVE to know how. Then the only limitation would be on syncing, which is still dicey with the software players.Edited by nathan_h - 2/13/14 at 8:06am
