It appears the Corda Move is shipping now.

Just received a note from Jan to say that my Corda Move is being shipped.

Arg. I am not going to buy the Move. It sure does look better and has some better features, but I don't need it for now. For now...
yuo know you want to...

I use 30 volts with mine and it sounds very good with HD 650.[/I]

I haven't had a good look for a UK adaptor, so I've been using the battery, which seems to last forever! Since I also use it on the go, the MKIII's connector placement isn't convenient...
I picked up a 24v regulated and it really shines over 9v or USB power. It is really worth the listen to hear the mkiii with the extra volts.

I got the note this morning, too!

I guessed it would... will have to find a decent supply here!

This is very nice indeed, so is the price

Just a question (quote from amp details):
Mean current uptake: 18 mA (high current mode)
7 mA (low current mode)

The unit runs from a single 9V battery and internally the supply voltage is used to create a pair of +4.5 and -4.5V powerlines (low current mode) or a pair of +9 and -9V powerlines (high current mode).


Surely +4.5 and -4.5V is high current mode and +9 and -9V is low current mode. P=IV if you see what I mean. Am I being a blimmin' idiot? I think I'm just being a blimmin' idiot. Can someone explain this to me?

I got Jan's email too! Yaaaaahooooo....

But I really hate to wait...

Usually Jan's products have taken about 10 days to get to me here in Chicago.

It took exactly 14 days to ship my Prehead to Michigan a few years ago.
So 4 days from IL to MI...

Anyway I am so excited now!

The manual for the Porta Corda actually states "Generally, the higher the voltage the better the sound." So, Jan must agree.

I use mine with a non-regulated 22V adapter (which actually measures around 18.5V), and it sounds great. I can't compare to the sound with 9V because I've never tried using a battery.

My Porta Corda took 21 days from Germany to the US East coast, I'm not sure what happened

YES! I urge any Porta Corda user to try a 24~30 volt DC power adapter. My amp with 30 volts delivers clean power to my 880,650, etc. Bass is clean and powerful into my Darth Beyers.
post #29 of 1165
I am using a 24V DC adapter and I think the SQ is better than driven by the USB port.

My amp took about 3-4 days. Jan shipped it before he actually got the money.
