As I posted earlier, you can now get the board files for all of Tangent's projects, sans the PIMETA V2 due to its cost-prohibitive four-layer design. In other words, last I checked, the cheapest and most reliable service I could find for four-layer boards, ITEAD, required a minimum of 10 boards at $99 plus about $12 shipping and handling. And, from what I have been told, they do throw in two boards or so extra free of charge if you ask real nicely for it. So at this point,...
Which case exactly is this? It looks like a water resistant one I haven't seen before. I am actually using a V1 board for my next build because that is the only thing that is cost effective these days. That case there you are using would be about the right size for me if I ever wanted to go the buffer stacking route.
Remember to always read the fine print when making any purchases.     Never mind. Most of us are probably like Gonzo anyway when it comes to our headphone purchases.
ROFL. I think my ribs will be sore for the next week! XD Actually, the agreement is more along these lines: http://youtu.be/W9hkGqH2D8c?t=6m4s  No, it's even worse than that. The cherry on top of it all is that to run any Perl program with Strawberry, you have to run it as an Administrator. That obligatory warning includes any unforeseen interdealings with the NSA you may have from any carefully hidden payloads.  I should try my hand at KiCad on a more permanent basis. I...
Hat's off to Tangent for releasing the ExpressPCB files for the PPA V1 and Pimeta V1. The ExpressPCB files for these projects are now available, as well as those of the PPA V2 which has been the case for a decade or so.   Visit the project pages below to download the ExpressPCB files.   PPA V1: http://tangentsoft.net/audio/ppa/amp/   PIMETA V1: http://tangentsoft.net/audio/pimeta/   PPA V2: http://tangentsoft.net/audio/ppa/amp2/   It is possible to have these...
Feeling a little green today?  I'm actually gray myself.
Just a quick note to anyone who is experiencing harshness and thinness with the PFE earphones. You may want to seriously look into the sample rate converter you are using. Even so-called top-of-the-line DACs out there will add their own coloring with too much filtering, such as over-sampling and over-dithering. Turn off those features and instead, using SoX on Foobar (with WASAPI on) will do perfect resampling without seasoning the sound with off-putting distortion or...
Not sure how many of you would consider this a deal monetarily, but TangentSoft just published all of the ExpressPCB files for the PPA V1 and PIMETA V1. Only the PPA V2 had been accessible... until today! Just install PDF2GERB and an version of Strawberry Perl from around 2010. (Note: The newer versions of Strawberry result in an error as I found out the long and hard way. Fortunately, I stumbled on this post online:...
There is actually more than one, but it could very well be a batch of channel-mismatched AD900X's. I was able to add two, apply the code and get to the screen prior to payment. YMMV. EDIT: The coupon only is good towards one.
Joker doesn't say this directly in his review but the PFE 0xx's when upgraded from the stock green filters to the gray filters are exactly the same soundwise as the PFE 1xx's which come with the gray filters as stock. That is why I keep encouraging here to get the extra green filters which have a tool for changing filters and also getting the gray filters so you get the biggest bang for your buck. And if you need a case, I highly recommend one of the $10 Shure hard shell...
