LISA III Available for Order - Page 6

post #76 of 1070
I'm sure they did see it, but the correction would have delayed the release of the product, and they wanted to keep their word on the release date. I know the panels were sent out to the engraver just days before the units shipped.

"Ya, my engraver showed me the first attempt, after asking for V for volume
and B for bass, she gave me Vol. and Bal, ! so I said the be is for bass. OK
go ahead and do the rest. So I recieved the 19 misspelled
so I had 19 engraved as yours. That is corrected on the next batch, So you
will have a collectors item, or I will replace it if you like."

Brads response when I sent him an e-mail about the "base" spelling.

One more thing......I just plugged my E500s into the Lisa. There is a slight amount of hiss, even with volume and "base" turned all the way down. But it is not enough to be terribly bothersome. I'm keeping my hornet, so I doubt that I'll be using the E500s with the Lisa anyhow.

I think it's kinda funny... any idea how many have been shipped so far? Someone needs to start a Lisa III impressions thread

Silver face and black body... Skylab must be a Raiders fan it does look sharp though!

I was afraid of that issue with the E500's! I know they've asked me for feedback on it because like I said they didn't use IEM's to test it. Sounds like the gain needs to be lowered to 3 for folks using IEM's instead of the default of 5.

Regards,
Will do.

Interesting, Brad's opinion is that the Lisa III should not change with break in. I'm listening to it right now, and it's every bit as impressive as the prototype. I haven't done any actual comparisons yet, but certainly the Lisa III is a terrific sounding amp.

You may as well send Phil or Brad an email to see if there is any change in plan.

Yeah, given the chance I'd rather DIY a Lisa III for the enjoyment of the build. Any update on this Triad?

Yippie, my all Black Lisa III finally arrived today, and I'm presently listening to it as I type this. It's very cool to have been issued s/n:001 of 100! Impressions will follow after I've gotten some quality time with it. Wow....BTW, I do detect a slight backround hiss with my E500's, however none with my Triple-Fi Pros. The first thing I have to say is I'm struck by just how real and natural everything sounds, and this is only out of a standard Turbo dock interfaced to a 30Gb IPod Video. I can't wait to hear it with my IMod 5.5 since it already sounds excellent.

How does it compare to your Move? What are the main differences between the two? Also how much of an impact does the bass or "base" knob have?
post #87 of 1070
Sorry, guy I'll need more time....just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll do some comparisons later on tonight. The Move doesn't have that many hours on it so it should be a pretty reasonable comparison. I can tell you this, I notice no harshness whatsoever from the Lisa III presentation. The low end is pretty amazing without even messing with the base knob

wakeride74,
The Move is definitely thinner sounding then the Lisa III. The only word that constantly comes to mind when listening to the Lisa III is realism! Everything just sounds real like it is being performed right in front of you. Another attribute is that it doesn't display the harshness on certain tracks that other amps do, yet the highs are right there in full force. Amazingly transparent! It also has a much more robust low end then the Move. It is one hell of an amp! I've been listening to it via an IPod 30Gb Video with a Turbo dock on it for line out all night. Can you imagine how this thing is going to sound with my IMod 5.5! Tomorrow for that! Congratulations to Phil and Brad for bringing a wonderful product to the audio community!
