LISA III Available for Order - Page 10

post #136 of 1070
Wakeride74, please keep us advised on the pairing with the GS1K. I'm curious about this match (especially with that Grados midrange issues with most amps).

Come down to the meet in San Jose on the 25th and you can hear for yourself

I've actually sent Phil and Brad an email asking to swap for the XP version (mostly for battery life). I'm hoping to have this worked out before the meet so I'd have the XP available to everyone there for the day.

What is the battery life of the standar Lisa??

Ah, how did I miss hearing about that? Suppose to be out of town, but perhaps that will fall through. Thanks for the heads up.

The Expedition PIG POPPA Reviewed was an Expedition and was at a Higher Bias. Both these were prototypes. The CRD Diodes required for the High Bias setting became unavailable at the time the Mass order of parts for this Lot of Amps were ordered. One of the reasons Triad Audio is able to offer this complex of an amp packaged so well at this price point is not only the result of Design efficiency but in addition is also made possible by buying in Bulk.

All LISA III's produced for this first batch that are offered for sale at this moment in time are of standard Bias regardless of the model, both the Expedition and the standard models offered for sale are of the same Bias. The only difference Electrically between the two is the Up-graded batteries from 9 Volt 150 mAH NI-MH to 2000 mAH AA celled Battery pack and thus offering long run time between charges, Moreover since the Batteries are discharging at a small rate there life expectancy should be a Very Very long time. To acomidate this extra large battery the charging circuit is also reset to charge at a Higher current, this is simply done by changing a resistor and thus both Models use the same Charging Circuit except the current set resistor value is different.

I apologize for not mentioning this right away prior to your ordering, With all the many things i have had to do latly this detail sliped my mind.
It appears that the reverse is true all LISA's got the high Bias diodes because it was the Low Bias ones that were out of stock at the time of ordering parts. So instead all LISA III Amplifiers including the Expedition have the Higher Expedition Bias Setting as opposed to the previous stated Lower Bias, thus resulting in more depth of image yet a substantial reduction in battery life with the standard Version operating on 9 volt batteries. Thus standard LISA III's will play for about 4-5 hours as opposed to the intended 6-8 Hours per charge on the internal 150 MAh Batteries.

For those that want to take advantage of this Higher Bias yet require a long runtime the Expedition would be ideal since one can have both High Bias and Long Battery life about 50-60 Hours per charge, otherwise the standard LISA is perfect for around the House use when an umbilical power cord is not desired.

Does the Lisa III come with a wall-wart? What supply voltage does it accept (I'm in the UK where we have 240v)?
post #142 of 1070
Hi,
No, it does not come with a wall-wart. I'll let ppl respond to your supply voltage question.

Thank you, Flashbak.

This amp just continues to impress me. I really can't believe the level of detail this things is producing. No instruments are lost in the layers or background, everything just pops! Every instrument has its own space around it and you can easily pin poit each one. Imaging and separation are stunning! I could be happy with this as my only amp for transportable and home use for quite some time.

I will test my new XP tonight with 650s and e500s.
post #146 of 1070
I need some full sized headphones. :|

Between this and the UE11's, I do not see myself doing well financially in the coming months.

yes me too and i have a xin reference on order too.

It's a great amp. Even though I've been exclusively using IEM's for awhile I just went ahead and ordered a pair of full size phones just to see what they sound like. After all, that is what the amp was specifically designed for!

gregeas,
I'm anxious to hear your findings.
