I guess this is some sort of static but here in Hong Kong we are having a very wet day so I doubt where the static comes from.

Strange....

Anyway, when music starts to flow, all these don't matter any more :-)

F. Lo
yes this is true the metal shaft of the Volume control along with the Metal knob make a Great antenna to transmit EMI and noise directly into the input of your amp however with no body parts touching the controls the amp should not have any noise.

That unit had the higher Bias just like all other production LISA's. only prototype units had the lower bias like the wood one Skylab first reviewed, This is perhaps why the Runtime issue did not come up then as that amp would actually play for 8 hours per charge.

There are some 280 and 300mA 9 volt NiMH on the market now. Will it work with those ok? I see on the website that a much lower mA battery is being so run time would be longer.

Nice! Is the front panel of the Lisa aluminum?

WoW! Instead of calling it your portable rig - you should name it your portable music heaven ! This is definitely a top-end road warrior setup!

The only other thing that you can consider improving is a RAL mini-RCA interconnect, and better still, a Gold interconnect from Qables.

I'm jealous

Yes, in all these threads there's nothing about whether the stock batteries can be upgraded, or if they are offered. If they can't be upgraded, what is the rationale for 120mA 9 volts? I don't suppose that li-ion batteries could be substituted for NiMHs either? It's kinda a shame to have such a limited run-time on the standard.

according to the Data sheets of the stock batteries and the High capacity types talked about hear reveal that the High capacity type depicted in this post should work since the stock Energizer battery is 48.5 X 26.5 X 17.5 and weights 42 Grams the MaHa measures 47.8 X 25.6 X 16.5 and Weights 57 Grams. the critical dimension being the 17.5 MM thick Battery thickness vs the MaHa 16.5 MM thickness a full MM less than the stock according to the published data sheets of Both batteries

Skylab.
Have you tried pairing your DT990 with the LISA?
Is it a good synergy?
post #325 of 1070
Thanks for posting those dimensions. I could find those anywhere... and from what i have heard the DT990 with the LISA are a great combo.

My DT-990's 2005 version are arriving by Thurs. I'll let you folks know, but I haven't heard a phone yet that doesn't benefit from the Lisa III!

Thanks Phil. So long as the width is no more than 17.5mm, and within the standard Energizer 9v dimensions, any high capacity NiMH 9v will work. I'll look forward to ordering a Lisa in the near future.

Yes they will. I contacted Phil and he responded stating:

Yes it is true that only the standard batteries will fit however if you install the amp board and panels so as the sliding cover is on top not the Bottom then the Larger Batteries will fit. this requires re-installing the rear panel 180 deg and then simply sliding the board in the slots farthest from the sliding cover. in other words simply make the top of the case the bottom.

So the larger batteries are too big to fit as is. I'm a bit surprised in that alkaline and lithium batteries can be installed in place of the stock ones. Do they also necessitate the 180 reinstall?
