I know they are the same "model", but the pictures look different, especially the stand. Are you sure that they are the same? Is the one in the second link newer/better? Thanks.
Hey, thanks for the insight, dude. I haven't ordered a catalog yet (which comes by mail). Is there a downloadably pdf catalog? Anyway, I've been browsing the contact east online shop, and I found some stuff by Weller. From the "Gettings Started in Audio DIY" page from the building a cmoy page It said that if I'm going to get a non-adjustable iron, "15W to 30W iron is just about...
hmm, good to know. Good thing I haven't opened it yet. Crap, then I'm gonna have to return it, right? Which soldering iron should I use then? What's the most common soldering iron (beginner audio DIY) used for building headphone amps from cmoy's to PPA's (and beyond that)? Is it under $50? What's the most commonly used soldering iron here that is under $50?
The only search result in these forums for it was in the cable gallery, and it went unanswered. Hey guys, I'm interested in started audio DIY, and I just got the Cold Heat Classic Soldering Iron/Tool. I haven't opened it yet.

Heh, some school in San Francisco, CA just started having chinese as a foreign language course. I digress, but I'm going to contribute something to the topic: I agree.
Yea, I'm looking for one too - but for Audio DIY (well, headphone amps) in general. Hope it doesn't cost like 50 bucks a year...
Haha, China... yea, you can get anything for a few bucks there... that is, if you know what you're doing, lol (I never know what I'm doing). Screw up one word of your chinese - up! Screwed. I have a couple of usb fans my dad got from there - two bucks for one of them, and one for the other... In America, the cheapest you can find is $15 apiece! He's good at haggling. It's no wonder we have an extensive dvd collection - all of which, are the original copies... yes............
sigh... same here... I stopped going eventually though.
