LISA III Available for Order - Page 52

post #766 of 1070
Isn't PPAv2 is similar with Lisa III and it's a desktop amp?
post #767 of 1070
Honestly I do not know about PPA v2 but I guess over time Phil's design has evolved and the LISA III is his latest (god knows what else is in his sleeves). I haven't heard a PPA but love what I hear from a LISA III XP.

Interestingly, Phil/Triad are kind of going the other way, working on a "Portable HeadCode", and even bigger, higher-end amp that can run on batteries.

Yeah I am expecting the PortaCode too....

I have had a chance to communicate with Phil and asked about the LISA, the PortaCode.... and other projects that he has in mind. According to Phil, the LISA is the extreme of an opamp based amp can be, and the PortaCode is the ultimate of what a discrete amp can be. He also have bigger plans, but since this is not official yet I better let him do the talking when the time comes.

Back to the LISA I think a Home version will make sense, as long as Phil implements a good a.c. power supply. With a beefy and ultra clean a.c. power supply we may be able to achieve a bigger voltage swings that will be difficult in the case of a battery powered amp.

Also, with added features and flexibility a home version of the LISA may appeal to those who think "battery" means secondary.

No, the PPA was designed as a transportable amp too a bit like the LISA III (PPA = phil's pocket amp)

Also, it was a collaborative project by tangent and morsel using ppl's ideas, he didn't actually have a huge part in its development, though I guess he gave his blessing on the project. The LISA III is all ppl's design.

Bass Boost FTW!

OK I've been playing with the LisaIIIXP with various components in my possession. I hate the word 'synergy' for some reason that implies to me one-and-only, but I've stumbled on a combo that simply is transcendent (to me): LisaIIIXP + Apogee miniDAC + W5000 (LisaIIXP bass boost at max to fill out W5000's range!). I'm sure there are other combos, but this simply rocks! And in a form factor, readible transportable (not portable) from room to room. This can compete with the big guns...

so I'll likely be pouncing on an XP soon with an elpac PS for charging the batteries..

I'm wondering, how do you have any idea when they're done charging.. as well as what kind of charge time is needed for going from empty to fully charged batteries in the XP (with the elpac)

anyone?
post #773 of 1070
I don't see any indicator on mine as to when the charging is done on my Lisa III. I have read before that the charge time is about 15hrs.(Well charging it up is mostly a non issue since I use it plugged into my LLP most of the time.)

Why not make it like the Red Wine Signature 30.2 and keep the battery idea? It could have the extra room for a big beefy battery as a home amp I think.

There is no indicator on any LISA III as far as I know. You just keep it on the charger, I usually make sure it charges overnight. I was going to check the documents and manual for it on esnips for you, but its blocked on the network here.

I'm sure it also depends on the battaries being used, make sure its specific to the XP.

Home version of LISA III ?

This is a good idea but the amp will be so heavy that I will have pay more for shipping than the amp itself

Seriously, while battery is nice in many aspects it is also evil in some areas : it has finite life, need some discipline in caring and running the amp, people can messed with the charging circuit....

Also, I think the way the LISA III is design is such that the charging circuit may impose some limitation on the voltage that the amp can derive, and in some sense this can be a compromise. A A.C. only "Home Version" will remove this constraint - and we can have as much power as we want - as long as the power regulation is done in a high-end manner.

I did post at TraidAudio.net asking for a Home version

TriadAudio.net Forums • View topic - I would like to see a "Home" version of LISA III

No response so far. If you guys that this is a good idea, please drop a note there !

Who do you email at Triad Audio? I have emailed the person who handles the sales but for the last few days I have not received a response.

The person who handles sales is Brad. He has an assistant call Linda. Brad is quite a busy person to my knowledge so Linda may come in sometimes to provide some useful response on sales / logistics.

For design issues, wishes and dreams ..... the best way is to post at the forum of TriadAudio.net and page Phil - normally he watches the actions there

Guys, I have a question...

Do Triadaudio charge extra $20USD for Postage & Handling on top of the price, which already include shipping cost?
Why they don't mention this hidden cost on their price description?
I need to confirm this.
Thanks.
post #779 of 1070
I think orders outside of USA costs more for the extra cost of shipping
post #780 of 1070
Actually I already check all options.

International shipping price is already priced more expensive than CONUS, but they charge $20USD extra.

Even I choose "In the USA" option, they still charge $20USD as postage & handling extra.

extra:
