Where can we find a custom-made metal case that is about the size of supermicro? Anyone?

post #92 of 3957
Has anyone had the chance to use any of Xin's new creations with their UM2's? I have gone back and forth on whether or not it is worth it for me to get an amp. Right now they sound pretty good coming straight from my iPod.

The dilemma is, I'm afraid that if I get an amp I won't be able to resist the iMod as well. But that is the Head-Fi way, isn't it?

On a side note, ComfyCan, where in South Alabama are you from? I'm from Mobile myself. -CK

Got my SuperMacro yesterday. Excellent! In particular with my UM2s.

Nice pic.

Is the volume knob easy or hard to turn?

Is it likely to move easily in a pocket?

Even if it does, I will have to live with that because I just changed my order from a SuperMicro to a SuperMacro.

Main reason for upgrading was having external access to those switches, I want to use it with a few different 'phones. Also for the charger, onboard charging, playtime, much stronger and better looking case and I may want to use the better upgrade opportunities one day.

I made a mini and a macro from paper and the size difference doesn't seem to be that much. I have friends with bigger mobiles than a Macro!

The Macro is 200g / 7 oz with batteries (my Nokia 6230 is 100g) and the Micro is only 55g / 2 oz

The extra weight is my only "bummer" but thats the price you pay I guess. It will hardly ever be in my pocket so will rarely distress me. (I have a thing with light weight)

I will mainly use it for daily PC listening but may want to go portable sometimes, plus I'm travelling Eurpoe and US in a couple months. Hope it's here by then

The volume knob isn't hard to turn, but I don't think it will turn in your pocket. I do actually prefer the knob on the SM3 to the one on the SM4. Thinking of seeing if the knobs can be easily switched...

Main weight of the SuperMacro is the batteries, of course.

Thanks for that, why is the SM3 knob better, I haven't seen a SuperMacro III.
post #104 of 3957
Just found some pics of the macro III. Looks pretty much the same as th IV apart from the knob.
post #105 of 3957
They are identical except for the knob. I just like the black knurled knob better than the short smooth silver one.
