LISA III Available for Order - Page 14

post #196 of 1070
My Lisa III is not working I changed the rechargable batteries (which were dead) for regular 120 MAh alkaline 9 volt batteries (Duracell) but is not working. As soon as I put the batteries on the amp they got progressively warm and the amp doesn't work.

And just when I had figured out the way to use it with my Imod. Now I'd have to send it back to the US by courier (and probably U$ 50 for shipping costs) and wait to see if it can be fixed

Hold up! The amp draws way too much current for conventional 9V batteries. That is why they are heating up, and that's why the Lisa III specifically includes those rechargable 9V batteries with high current capability. You need to get that Elpac AC adapter and charge those babies!

Thanks a lot...is it possible to recharge them with a traditional batteries recharge device?

I don't understand the pricing. I have read that it is 500 but then if you want a different case it as more but wood front plates were the same cost but then more then the price of gold. What is the actual cost? The model with the larger battery seems very large. Are there any images?

Jamato8,
The Lisa III Standard Edition is $500.00 + $20.00 shipping (US)
The Lisa III Expedition is $550.00 + $20.00 (US)

Both come in a metal case. The wooden cases are still on hold for the moment ,and prices haven't been released yet.
Note: There is a gain option change for $20.00 additional, as well as an Order Expedite option which is an additional $10.00. International orders need to contact them at:
triadaudio@gmail.com
There is a picture of the silver Expedition as well as the Standard in this thread.

Bolardito,
The address is on the box your unit was shipped in. Don't know it off the top of my head and I'm at work. email triadaudio@gmail.com they'll be able to give you the address.

From what I read there is a bias increase with the Expedition. Has anyone heard this and or compared it to other units? The output section of this amp is discrete? The 744 is used but is it socketed?

I think this amp is dedicated to AD744/829, and not meant for opamp rolling. I'd be surprised if they were on sockets. The production and pre-production amps on these pics doesn't have sockets, but the plexi-one does.

Please do not change the Op amps in this amp you will not be able to improve upon the performance simply by changing one part since this is a tightly iintergrated precision design, random changing of Electronic components will result in less performance and may damage the Amp and or the Connected Headphones. Everything is precisely calculated from the value and Brand of components including the Batteries to work as a harmonious system and any alteration from factory specifications will result in less than ideal performance and sound quality.

Question for PPL:

I ordered my Lisa XP with gain set for the Senn HD650s. Everything sounds good, but I can't get the volume past 9:00 before it becomes uncomfortable. I know that some volume pots perform best around 12:00. Should I send the XP back and have the gain lowered? If so, what's the turnaround time? Thanks.

I used to say it's crazy buying Lisa III for like 1000$. After listening to it seriously, I'm taking my word back. The sound produced from Lisa III+PSU unit worths 1000$ qualified amplifier. However, it's not the sound that can please everyone but still, this is the finest portable/transportable amplifier so far without a doubt. As for home amps, it would be great pair with most people who prefer rock style sound. I would like to see the comparison between Lisa III and GS-1 too.

P.S. Thanks million to Brad for bringing this fine gem to right at my face :P I'm appreciated in your effort.

P.S. 2 - Next week I'll send this basic amp to my friend for changing battery supply pack to get 800mah V18-24 (depending on the space and size of the battery) If it works out, I'll have basic version that can run like 3-5 times longer!

Ok, so what is the sound difference between the Expedition and the regular Lisa III? I read the bias is increased so how is the sound difference between the two?
