Meier Corda Move details released - Page 74

Any recommendations on where to buy velcro online?
post #1097 of 1165
Just go to a hardware store. Usually they have a good selection somewhere near the glues.

I think I got my cut-to-fit pads at Staples or Home Depot. Skylab's o-ring solution is the more cost-conscious pick as Velcro does gouge in their prices.

I have just got my Corda Move and need a little advice.

I want to change the setting from high gain to low, I have removed the two screws on the front plate, but it wont budge, do I have to remove the volume dial also?

Also what way do I push the PCB out if I ever get that far.

please help.

I have figured it out, sorry to bother you all.

I must be a bit idiot or slow because I still don't get what would be the best settings for a new pair of sennheiser HD595's with 50 ohms.

High Current (9 or 12 Volts) and Low gain (the jumper inside the amp) ?

High current, low gain. If you're going to use USB power, you don't need an ac adapter. Low current mode will extend battery life by reducing the power available to the headphones, but this might still be enough with the 595's to provide good sound quality at normal listening levels. See what your ears tell you...

and I assume the settings for AKG 701s would be high/high?

I am using high current, low gain with my 701s and there is plenty of volume. (For me, anyhow) At what I consider a reasonably normal volume level comparable to a live classical performance, my volume knob is at about the 3 o'clock position. I never use a higher gain until a lower gain setting proves inadequate.

With the AKG 701's I would start with low gain to see if it's enough. The gain settings depend not only on the headphone sensitivity but also on the strength of the input signal.

I have been using the Move with an Ipod/Nano so the source signal is not great. I'm afraid low gain would not generate enough volume.

If your volume control is hovering around 12 o'clock or so with one or the other setting, you're in good shape.

I'm afraid I am closer to 2:00. May be an age issue.
post #1109 of 1165
why don't you go for a dock line-out? just curious
post #1110 of 1165
I'm using my MOVE in low gain and high current modes with my HD595s, and I just want to reiterate how much a quality powered USB hub helps with noise issues. Before I got one I was getting hard drive interference and static hum at quiet or silent moments. Now, I can only just barely hear some static hum at top volume. (This is good because I don't listen much past 12 o'clock, ever...)
