Yeah, I've wanted a headcode since they were first announced but I've never been able to put together the scratch to get one. By the time the Portacode comes around maybe I'll finally have enough. That, or I can just start selling off all this random equipment I have lying around.

Question: What does the wood have to do with the LISA III?

Answers :-

a) Wood is one way to decorate the LISA - the LISA is about the internals and she needs clothes before she can appear in public

b) Wood is a good way to personalised a LISA - because the uniqueness of wood grain no two wood case will be exactly the same

c) Wood is one of the business Brad (another founder of TriadAudio) is it, and therefore this offers an unique opportunity to do a wood case properly by the expert. Have a wood casing is easier said than done - it requires a lot of expertise.

d) Wood is another means for you to spend more money on your amp

e) Wood also reminds you to look after your LISA - because it is less tolerate to abuse than an extruded alumimun case.

That's all I can think of

Could somebody be so kind as to re-post the LISA's physical dimensions? I'm having difficulty locating them on the Triad site.

I clipped the text from Phil's posting at TraidAudio. I am however not 100% sure if these are the final dimenions. Hope Phil won't get mad about this

What LISA is Designed to do is provide the absolute finest sound one can obtain (IMHO) from any headphone amplifier that is operated by 9 Volt transistor radio type battery. This includes just about every pocket sized amp available from other manufactures. LISA III is an accumulation of The technical refinements found in my Previous portable Amplifier Designs.

Measuring just 3 inches wide and just over an inch high LISA III Standard Edition is compact and quite portable yet has sound quality that rivals fine Home Amplifiers.

The LISA III Expedition Edition has the same footprint of 3 inches wide X 6.3 Inches in depth as the LISA III, However is 1.7 Inches in Hight. The Expedition Replaces the Standard versions 9 volt battery pair with Ultra high capacity (For this application) NI-MH battery with 14.7 Volts @ 2100 MAh. This will allow the Expedition to play over 50 Hours per charge at nominal listening levels.The Expedition Edition also has substantially increased Bias for the entire output stage allowing more depth of Image than the standard LISA.

Both Versions of LISA III will have internal charging circuits that are set so that Both Versions require the same amount of recharge time 10-15 Hours. Both versions re built upon the same platform (PC Board) so as to accommodate volume manufacture by virtue of only requiring some part value changes to effect the Bias increase. Both versions require the same AC Adapter requirements of 24 Volts DC Regulated @ 500 mA with a 5mm X 2.1mm Coaxial DC power Plug (Male)

Phil also restate the following a few days ago :-

Quote :

The difference between the Standard LISA and the Expedition is Hight as both have the same Width and depth however the standard LISA is about 1 inch in Hight and the Expedition about 1.7 Inches.

Unquote.

But I guess the exact dimensions may be a bit different depending on the casing material.

Hope this helps.

I think the plan was to fulfil the commercial orders first (the first 50 ?), and then respond to the previous request for DIY boards, which will be sold under the buyer's undertaking for private, non-commercial use, and in limited quantities.

You may as well send Phil or Brad an email to see if there is any change in plan.

I don't know what is the plan of others, but I am planning to hold on to my Pocket Reference.

The PRII does not necessarily overlap with the LISA. The PRII is definitely more portable, and its has, in my opinion, the best metal works design of all amps I have seen in the market, making it a collector's item, especially if Larry decides to drop the ball one day.....

i wonder how this device will compare to the Xin reference, which although considerably less expensive is getting rave reports on the beta units.
