Using these temporarily until I get my iPod rig sorted out. Sounds great though

The ipod photos above, where would the poster have gotten a weird cable like that that socked into the ipod docking port, and into the amp, because surely I would need a slightly different cable to fit into my Sony?

AFAIK there is no Sony line out cable (or one that is available to the public). You will need a mini-mini cable or something like that.

They usually don't come with the amp.

It is called a Lineout Dock, abbreviated generally as an "LOD".

Some players have a dock port, some dont, although popular players with propriotry connectors and cables generally do, and if it is popular, the pinout will be found, and an LOD deisngned and made. These are brand/player specific. The ipod ones work with all ipod IIRC, so are brand specific.

The sony doesnt, so you would need a standard mini to mini, however you would be amping an allready amped signal, which was amped by an inferior amp, so unless the headphone out is very clean, it is better to use a dock if possible, and if there isnt a dock port to get a lineout from, the changes wont be so noticable, however if the player doesnt have a dock port to extract a lineout from, then it probably is a good sounding player, with a good internal amp anyway, and may bot merit amping.

Some layers have an almost lineout quality, like the cowon d2 on a certain volume, and even more lineout like if the effects are fiddled with.

I believe the sony you have has a reasonable hp out though, so amping it should be ok, but the changes may not be as noticable as amping an unamped signal, eg Lineout.

Can people please stop quoting whole posts, containing several images? It takes seconds to snip the images away.

TIA.

This is my "on-the-go" setup, my camera died before I could snap a picture of the office setup- same amp + 4G iPod photo + Grado 225s.

Oh please frost the plates!

If properly done, think about how nicely that blue LED light would diffuse. At night, the entire front plate would look like it is glowing.

Yea, I had the moodlab stuff in mind when I decided to make the plates (moodlab). The more I look at the clear faceplates, the more the mini looks like one of those modded PCs- not quite the look I was going for
My only concern is that I would screw up the frosting, I need to find someone that knows how to do it properly or figure out a good way to do it.

My new Zune 8 in an iClear protector and JVC Marshmallows.

The Zune cost me $89 at Amazon thanks to an mysterious $50 off promotion (that only showed up at the very last stage of check out; no where was it mentioned on the product page) and a $30 credit that comes with the first purchase that I make with my new Amazon Visa card.

The Marshmallows were purchased at Barnes & Noble, where I work part time for extra spending money, so I got them for about $16. I am not particularly happy with the Marshmallows and I expect that I will be upgrading from them fairly quickly.

I really like the Zune so far and the current Zune desktop software is quite nice.

Seems okay to me since that post was on page 20 and we are now on page 40 or something. At least one photo left seems alright to me.

Basman, I recall always being impressed with your rigs! Talk about color matching!
