Geek Connected to iPad

Here's the good news.  Because you asked, we connected Geek up to an Pad using a "camera kit."  It worked!

Here's the bad news: Geek draws too much power, so you'll have to use an external power source.  See those little wires?  That's what we did.  But there are plenty of after-market USB battery packs.  Choose one, and you're good to go.



  1. Wonder if it would work with a Dr. Bott's T3 USB hub? That does the trick much of the time by fooling the IPad.

  2. I don't have Bott's T3 USB Hub... Maybe when you got Geek, you can share the result with me.


  3. So... any ways of doing DSD / hi-res file playback from the iPad? Seems a shame to let the GEEKs true power go to waste with compressed or redbook streams, you know? :)

  4. Not seeing a picture? Is there some problem viewing this on an iPad?, was it a flash vid?

  5. Hi, Brisk!

    We need to wait 'software' people to develop that. Hardware wise, it is 100% ready.

  6. What kind of cable do you need for using the Geek with an Ipad and an external USB battery pack? A cable with one USB A connector at on side and two USB A connector at the other? Is there such a cable?
