 Hi Lohb, Li-Ion and LiPo batteries should be discharged to a voltage of 3.8V per cell before putting them away in storage.  They will have a voltage as high as 4.2V per cell when fully charged.   The battery pack in the PB2 has a 3 cells, so when it's fully charged, it would measure as high as 12.6V (4.2V per cell) and when you store it, it should measure exactly 11.4V (3.8V per cell). It can be easily disconnected, but I think it has some double-sided tape on the...
 
 In my case and with KopaZ, it quickly made the trip to our respective, local USPS distribution centers, then sat there for a couple of days, going nowhere, before finally making the last few miles to our respective local local post offices, then sat there overnight, before getting delivered to our homes. I  So it will probably get to Central IL, quickly. I'm curious as to how long it will sit still at your local USPS distribution center - as revealed by the tracking...
 That's weird.  The same thing happened to me.  Tracking info showed it went half-way across the country very quickly to reach a local USPS distribution center that's only 10 miles from my house - where it sat still, going nowhere for about three days, then it took a whole day to make it to my local post office and I got it the next day.  Sheesh! I have a theory: The USPS is so busy delivering Amazon packages that are handed off to them from the UPS, that they couldn't...

Now I'm pushing the DT880 600-Ohm with balanced output from the PB2 (with both sides of the two Sparkos Labs SS3602 Duals). It's almost an injustice to call the DT880 600 a poor man's HD800. It sounds so much better with twice the power from the PB2.     http://www.head-fi.org/t/633511/pictures-of-your-portable-rig-part-xvi/20250#post_12650499

 Wow!  At http://www.mouser.com, I'm surprised to see that their price of a MUSES02 is currently only USD $46.25, purchasing fewer than 10 at a time. http://www.mouser.com/search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=0virtualkey0virtualkeyMUSES02 The prices have come way down!   In November of 2013, they were on backorder at all of the reputable dealers in the U.S. I waited three months until mouser.com had them back in stock - when I then paid $75 each, plus tax and shipping. 12 Nov 2013...
 Yay!  I'm hoping you can justify my comments, but feel free to vilify me, instead!  LOL  It's so hard to be objective with this subjective hobby.   
Hi Scruffy1,   A friend of mine once told me he had read an article or heard a book or whatever that left him convinced of its message:  "Too many choices leads to unhappiness". I say, "The more choices the better," but when it comes to op-amps, I'm glad I only own one piece of gear into which I can roll them.  It sounds as if you've got several pieces with which to ramp up the permutations and combinations, as multipliers of your inventory of op-amps. You almost need to...
