Meier Corda Move details released - Page 69

post #1021 of 1165
Just got mine in earlier today... will be burning it in this weekend, will just playing music work fine?

Should I be changing it to low current to drive my AH-D1000s?

It's been a wonderful experience this little amp. I had no idea a correctly setup headphone system could sound so great for so little money compared to a speaker system. I've simply fallen in love (and also was starting to wonder what a more pricey settup could do )

Well here's where the heartbreak comes in. After about five days of intensely listening to this little marvel of an amp I pull it out of my crumbler bag and bam, no amplification. If I plug it in my powerbook still recognizes the DAC and the light goes red, but no music! I'm so heartbroken and painstruck at the thought that I might have just thrown away 200+ bucks since nowhere on ttvj.com or in the manual was there any expressed warranty whatsover. I guess I just didn't think about it when I was buying it but how sad! Is all hope lost for me?

Before you send the amp back, check and see if the battery is firmly against the contacts. There have been several instances of the little foam block compressing and allowing the battery to not make contact, rendering the amp inoperative. That also happened to me while using the larger lithium cells. I solved the problem by using the solid backplate and a little bit more foam sliced from one of the spare blocks included.

If that is the case, connecting it via USB should have powered the amp section too. I suggest sending it back to Jan (or whomever dealer it was purchased from) for an inspection/repair/replacement since it is likely still under warranty.

Cheers!

Zor...

You are correct...I didn't read it correctly that he listened to it with the DAC activated...I thought he just observed the light. Bummer!

Low gain, maybe? My comfortable listening limit is at about 8:30 or 9:00.

Sorry about your wallet!

I would contact TTVJ.com, they and Meier will take care of your amp for you.
Absolutely right. I'm sending it back tomorrow. Three thumbs up for service from these guys.

Was just lamenting my depressing moment without realizing all could be well.

Can't wait to get my move again since I'm back down to my powerbook hp out

Hope you get it back quickly. I really like it with the HD-600 and its versatility can't be beat.

I have to double that. I also really like the combination HD 600 and MOVE. The upfront and detailed midrange of the MOVE just makes the HD 600 sound even better. And not to mention the energetic treble and wide soundstage of the MOVE, that counterparts well with the laidback-ness of the HD 600.

How do your MS-2's fare with the MOVE?

Frankly, I can't tell of any amp that does not work well with the MS-2! It is that universal.

Mine arrived today! How much difference is the crossfeed switch on it supposed to make? I can't notice any difference; does it have to have a digital or analogue input for it to work, or doesn't it matter?

Digital or analogue doesn't matter: it just depends on the recording. It has relatively little effect on modern recordings, but transforms early stereo recordings. It's an absolute blessing for 50s and 60s jazz, especially.
