I haven't maxed out the battery life, but did fall asleep with it on and used it all the next day. You should definitely be getting over 7 hours.

no, you'll either have to resize or host your pics elsewhere. I use imageshack

I believe 70 hours play time is only the max. play time or the best figure given by the manufacturer. I would say it's around 50 hours for normal listening sessions (vol. set to nine o'clock) but definitely more than 7 hours!

7 hours. why would that be? the ONLY thing I can come up with that makes sense is make sure it has a full charge. turn amp off, unplug charger and look at the color of the led, its a greyISH white. why do i say this? because when charging you should wait untill its EXACTLY the same as it looks when its totally OFF. You may have to look close, as it will remain a very dim .... er ... amber sort of color for sometime till its fully charged and is the same color as totally off.

hope that helps.

make sure you are using the same charger that came with the amp. each amp I have the plug in current is different. I actually labeled mine at the plug end with masking tape to be sure.

using a different plugin I THINK could mess up the charge that the battery takes, or could be because the battery was tottally run dry then recharged?

I just now unplugged it at full change and will try to make the most accurate estimate of time. and it damn sure better be more than 7 hours lol [sorry]

It should at no time take more than 6 hours to get a full change, as per the "manual"

who told you that 70 was a typo and that the battery should only last 7 hours? thats BS man

well it's possible the battery wasn't fully charged. I left it plugged in for longer then the recommended length to charge so idk... It should be fully charged now bc I had it plugged in for about 55 hours (it was on but still) while I burned it in. So since I'm burning in my XP that arrived today I'm going to try to keep track of listening time.

and the person who told me it was a typo was Soundwize... the guy doing the group buy... so I figured he would know what he was talking about.

Gee sorry Soloz2 Did I say 7 hrs...I went back and checked my email
to you I did say that..I was dead Tired when I wrote back to You..that's what I get for
doing 2 Jobs..What is right is 37Hrs Max Output full Voltage into C&C Box.
I had many here and after about 37Hrs it was going down very Small amount.
Still very clear but not as much Power when I cranked it up.Yes it can go over
37Hrs.No Doubt! but not at Max output from Battrey.But it will Play good over
37 40 Hrs..Again Sorry..70Hrs well Maybe at the Max but it will be almost dead in and around that time.

just in case I forget later or it runs out while I sleep :P

as of this moment it has been run 48 hours and 20 min, driving the akg 701's at ...oh... about 9:30 on the volco (which is a tolerable vol level for me) your mileage may vary.

Thanks for clearing that up about the 7 hrs Soundwize I knew something had to be wrong.

Just wanted to report how much I'm loving my silver C&C BOX with my K701. It's currently serving me as a home amplifier, as such I always keep it on DC power. I'm using a 12V 1000mA linear regulated power supply that I suppose must be better than the switcheing stock PSU. All in all it's just a awesome amp and a real steal for its current price tag.

I bought mine from Lina for 55 GBP, by the way.

My C&C Box finally arrived this morning, 7 days from US to Malaysia. Had a quick listen straight out of the box. It was half charged. Fantastic sounds. This thing rocks with my ety 6i.

Thanks, Soundwize, for the grp buy.

back to post my time on one battery charge

driving the AKG K701 at about 9:30 to 10 on the volco. 56 hours. As stated in prior posts the other [2] times I only knew it played longer than 2 days straight. I am VERY impressed with this, plenty enough battery for even the longest travel trips. Once again I would like to say how very well the 3 sound enhancments work, they are awesome imho, as I was able to enjoy any music no matter the recording sound as sliding 3 switches this way or that a satisfactory sound can be attained. Does it show that I am impressed with the 3 switchs the unit uses. ok , I'm done now

I'd very much like to see battery run time results from others.
