LISA III Available for Order - Page 47

post #691 of 1070
So are the stock batteries not good?
post #692 of 1070
I am sure they are. They are NiMH AA's for the XP and NiMH 9 volt (x2) for the standard Lisa III. The power supply, the LLP made for the Lisa III puts out 24 volts which will give you more voltage swing and for some headphones this is a good thing but I would think the 18 volt battery supply should be fine. With the LLP I would imagine the Lisa III would make a nice home or mobile unit that not only runs off of the LLP but also has its batteries charged by it. Unlike many wall warts, the LLP should provide very high quality DC. Just my opinion.

Has anyone ordered the LLP power supply via the Triad website recently? There are options to buy the amp only or the amp with the LLP but nothing to buy the LLP only.
Maybe I'll drop them an email.

Yes, send them an email.

There was much less LLP made / in production than LISA III. May be this is the reason why TriadAudio wants to offer LLP as part of a package, not for new purchase.

But for existing LISA III users, this should be another story, and I think TriadAudio should entertain this request.

Couple questions... What is the main difference between the XP and standard? Battery life or SQ? I am assuming the XP has a longer run time? Do both the XP and the standard use rechargables?

Also, what kind of IC are you guys using for an ipod. Trying to find a good (relatively short) LOD to RCA and it has been hard.

Thanks, and sorry if this has already been covered.

Battery life is the difference. The standard edition uses 2ea 9volt rechargeable batteries where as the XP uses 12ea AA batteries.(AFIK They are both NiMH batteries. I know the standard has them.)

ALO Audio makes one here mini to rca that meant to connect the llisa to the ipod Audio Line Out

There may be other wire choice options available but, you would have to email them to find out.

Thanks- so I am I understanding you right the XP uses 12 AAs?
post #698 of 1070
ya, it uses a 12AA battery pack.

Are there any other options to charge it other than the stock LLP which is fairly expensive?

Buy a medical power supply.

ELPAC POWER SYSTEMS | FWC1824-760F-NC | Power Supplies | Power Products | Newark.com

As previously mentioned a few pages back, the WM080-1950-760 — ELPAC POWER SYSTEMS — External Plug-In Power Supply will charge the LisaIII.

Personally, I choose to get the LLP because I plan on running the LisaIII as a desktop amp 40% of the time.

* I can't recomend this amp enough, the sound is simply amazing.

...Still waiting for my LLP to bust out a full on review.

I ordered this to according to what others recommended and used. Its 24V. I don't see where it states the maximum amperage. I guess in that case though, I would recommend this:

ELPAC POWER SYSTEMS | MW1224-760-NC-BK | Power Supplies | Power Products | Newark.com

However, mine does not have a problem.

P.S. Good Choice! I'm burning in on some Daft Punk - Discovery right now.

You want the right voltage and a minimum amperes for charging or the charging will take much longer. Having more amperes doesn't hurt as the internal charger will use what it needs. Going with a higher current model, in well made units, can increase the delivery of current as needed and while this does not exceed a specified amount by the amps power supply, often a higher current supply just offers a type of improved headroom for the ps. Granted the Lisa III does not need very much current but I have been surprised by what increased available current can do even though much more than would ever be needed.

Thanks to all for this info- and quick too, so before I pull the trigger, this amp still worth all the praise???
