LISA III Available for Order - Page 48

post #706 of 1070
Definitely yes.

Since its launch back in mid 2007 I haven't seen a later amp in its price point that sounds better.

I don't think the LISA III is the FOTM type of amp. For me it is a keeper.

Definitely yes. Its almost in a league of its own for portable rigs. Only comparison might be the RSA XP-7.

I want to replace the batteries in my LISA Standard. I have some 300 Mah, but those are too big for the enclosure (how I wish that it was a cm taller). Can someone give me some recommendations?

For sure. The bass is ********* awesome. The standard Lisa fits in my laptop bag, and with the EMU1616, my little Novation xStation, Reason 4, and HD650's... I'll sum it up like Neo in the Matrix, "Wow"

<Go watch Matrix and then 2001 Space Odyssey in 5 minutes on youTube. Thats exactly how I would describe the LisaIII.>


Mana, the Powerex 300mah are to big?

BTW: The LisaIII shows the shortcomings of my emu1616m and or power supply all to well when using non-conditioned power. When my 1616m and laptop are plugged into normal wall outlets I hear a lot of static and sometimes a 60hz ground loop hum when turning the volume knob. I plugged the LisaIII into my iMod and no static or hum heard at all when turning the volume knob. Hooked the 1616 & laptop back up with a my Furman PC and the static and hum were gone. Soon as I plugged back into normal AC the static and hum also came back. I only noticed it at max volume and when turning the volume knob on the LisaIII. (Lisa was running off of batteries the whole time)

I am also in the same situation that you are in. I know that if you put the in the case upside down the batteries will fit, but I haven't tried switching around the back panel yet, to see if it will work that way.

ohhh thanks. I have to try that! Its such a tight fit already and that adhesive is really sticky like used and dried bubble gum. I also bet that the RCA outputs will have to have a new hole drilled. I'd rather make a new slide-on top before doing that.

I'm charging and listening to the ultra sensitive UE11 without the attenuator now (and charging my iMod at the same time). I have gotten a static noise or electrical hum when I touch the volume knob at times when charging. It depends on what plug I'm using too (oddly). Right now its fine. Soooo happy though. The imaging is perfect, just as I dreamed. Infected mushroom was doing literal circles in my head! *sigh*

I just did it and it works. The only thing I recommend being careful about is using the right sized screwdriver.(It can be real easy to strip a screw.)

Is the xp worth it?

It is a tricky question for portability. Its bulkier. Yet has more battery life. Its the typical nerd conundrum. Can you carry that thing?

If so, then yeah. Its great.

OH wow. Come next time I need to charge, I'm doing this. How much room would you say this adds?
post #716 of 1070
The bulk does not really concern me for my application, I guess I am more interested in how long the charge will hold for the xp. I understand the standard is only like 6 hrs. Also I am somewhat unfamiliar with a 12AA pack... is this replaceable?

Well it is a bit of a tight fit but, it is just enough for the powerex 300mah batteries to fit in snugly.

So what are you doing, flipping the board over?

Thanks so much. Your a savior. Guess they are going off of the F/S forums now.

The XP should last around 90 hours per charge, depending upon the mA of the NiMH they use but I believe theirs are around 2100mA (the AA batteries).
