I agree with that, told them the same, and I think that is part of the plan.

So the search will go one..
I was having similar problems charging my amp, including 2 blown batteries, then a fellow Head-Fier suggested buying an adaptor from RS Online which I did. Its a wee bit expensive but you can change the voltage settings - I have mine set to 18/20v & everything seems to be ok now. They have a site in the Netherlands at www.rscomponents.com & if you do a search for part number 423-9252 that should sort you out.

Please use the meter to verify the voltage, because in some various voltage adapter, the output is inaccurate as the printed mark.

This is good precaution ! Many of the so called regulated supply are not that "regulated". Always choose a good brand - this is probably the best assurance.

My LISA III Expedition & LLP - the Black Couple is here !

My black couple is here !

First of all, some pictures



Build quality is excellent. Black is... well Black.



This is the price to pay when you pushed and want to be first to own a LLP The assembler has engraved the face plate of my LLP upside down ! Brad promised to send in a replacement face plate as soon as it is ready.



The best sub $1,000 solid state amp in the market - portable or not.

I haven't have a chance to listen to it yet due to a busy start of the week.

Will keep you all posted.

Yes, this is a mistake as the engraver did it wrong (engraved the label upside down). Brad did alert me but we agree there is no point to wait so I asked him to ship.

One other thing to note is that the LLP does not come with a DC cord. I think this is overlooked because it is not easy from find a DC cord with 2.5/5.5 mm plugs at both ends. Right now I am using the one that comes with my PSR (the PSU for the Pocket Reference II), and it works fine.

Brad was actually shipping 3 amps (1 LISA standard, 2 LISA XP, and 1 LLP) in one lot as I offered to distribute the amps for him (free of charge) - in a hope that this will reduce shipment cost. As it turns out, the total shipment cost is just US$90, and my share is US$40 which is far cheaper than to ship them individually from USA to Hong Kong - considering that it arrives in only 4 days! Brad also waived the $6 handling fee (per order) which is very nice of him.

So, I paid US$550 + 300 + 40 for the whole set shipped.

Will share again when I find some time to listen to it.

I thought this cable should have been included. I don't think I would be able to find this cable anywhere in my area.

Aside from that, I was wondering, what is the best place to shop for headphone stuff in HK? Any store the most complete?

I agree. Brad if you are reading this thread, that DC to DC cable has got to come with the LLP. Its not the kind of thing one can just bop over to radio shack to get.

I have written to Brad and am awaiting for his reply. I agree the cord should come with the LLP.

In Hong Kong, there are many headphone shops, but I would suggest :-

1. AV2000 - Japanese version of STAX at good price, also ATH cans plus others.

2. Mingo shop - for general low - mid level cans up to GS1000. Mingo shop also carries a lot Chinese made amps including Little Dot III, IV, and Micro Tubes. He also carries a few models of Darkvoice. No exotic amps though. His shop is a gathering place for local head-fiers, and Mingo offers many IEMs and full size cans for listening, and at least 15 amps to pick at your leisure.

3. KingSound - good price for ATH cans. But not auditioning allowed.

There are others but not specialised in headphones, some in Mong Kok, and some in Sham Shui Po.

Could resist - I am now listening to it

I know I am busy. Work is over-whelming.... and I am tired after a long day.

But just can't resist the temptation of seeing the black couple lying there - so, I hook it up......plug in my PS-1, and time stand still.......

You can "find" it here



Let's call it a rewarding wind-up for the day

I am going to worry about work tomorrow

I think you need at least one more Grado.

I actually do have one more Grado - the RS-1, which I just brought back to my office to see how it sounds with the Lavry DA10. I am considering getting a second pair of GS1000 but not usre. I bought one early this year but sold it in June.

What are those 650's doing in there

How's the synergy with the DA10 and PS-1?
