Oh hockeyb, you must have a POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE,
I will start a thread on the www.triadaudio.net forum
register & post look for "Lisa Loaner Program"
We want YOU to hear for yourself, otherwise you are depending
on some one else's opinion, and taste is subject to the individual.

...........MAKE YOUR OWN WORLD......... Brad

wow nice one Brad, ,thats a great idea. with the lisa being so amazing; but also on the edge of portability and affordabilty for some people; it will only take one listen to be hooked I know I was, and now i'm yours hook, line and sinker
beware hockeyB, the lisa III is VERY POISONOUS so be prepared to sell your soul to own her

I got mine recently....and let me tell you guys...it is SOOOOOO worth it! She is truly amazing...nothing like it!

And Brad...well, your service is truly exemplary and I appreciated all of your help and advice.

You know what really bothers me though? That people balk at calling this a portable amp. It's quite portable IMHO...and I have no issues taking her along with me.

Thanks again Triad Audio!

yeah its totally portable, just not really pocketable. but seriously; does that mean its not portable?? I dont think so; and with the benefits; OMG the benefits are HUGE. Everyday i'm gobsmacked by what my rig sounds like these days; every day

Actually I do find it pocketable w/many of my pants & all of my jackets. It kind of depends on your interconnect and how you have your dap set up though.

Consider this "size" issue with a historical perspective...in the beginning their were C-moys. housed in breath mint tins, then Team PPA came along and introduced complicated circuits into the portable arena ..the PPA was a solid brick but sound quality was unsurpassed..Now these DIY projects have become refined into commercial products..C-moys are nicely packaged and the PPA has been compacted into the Lisa III..Size Vs Sound Quality..that is the issue..Lisa is built with SQ as the priority..so let them talk about SIZE all they want..

LISA

The LISA is definitely a profoundly fine amp...everything is simply well done; the quality is evident when you turn the volume knob. It is impressive when you A/B it with other amps...it is all about the minute details that you can hear. As suggested by another head-fier, to tell a quality amp it is about what you dont hear; that black/darkness/nothingness between notes elevates the lisa above the flock.

Some of us keep to the principle that portable means "It can slide into your pocket easily". Anything on-the-go amp which fails do to do is a transportable. RWA Signature 30.2. Best transportable as of yet.

yeah not my setup, if I built an interconnect with blackgates that terminated in RCA then totally would fit in my jacket (its in the depths of summer here at the moment though ) but with my VCAP dock (4 caps 2 OIMP VCAP and 2 TFTF vcap bypass) thats not really pocket material until winter comes around again and I can wear my jacket.

for the moment though, my rig slides nicely into my bag and i'm ALLLL GOOOOD!!! but yeah some time ago a portable rig was aboombox and that was neither pocketable or great sounding. these days I can bring my whole music collection and an amp that blows me away in less than a 1/8 of the size of those boomboxes. so all in all I really dont care whether its called portable or transportable; I can bring it with me with a minimum of fuss; so who cares about the label. as long as the label has lisa III on it the rest fades away into insignificance.

yes but you'de have to re-terminate all your headphones with spades

The Lisa and ESW10's go very well together. The sound is fast and dynamic. Clean highs and a well controlled and integrated bass.
post #959 of 1070
Lisa really works well with all my phones, my ESW9s and my recabled SR225s normally. Gotta admit it does seem to bring the AT headphones alive in particular though, i can only imagine it with the ESW10s.

yeah, cant say i've found a combination that lisa III doesnt sound magnificent in yet.
