Low Profile Cowon X5 LOD
Jeremy took on challenge of making a much more uncommon low profile LOD designed to fit the Cowon X5 & M3 and results were IMO fantastic, as follows:http://www.head-fi.org/forums/member...w-pro-doc.jpeg
Final product is IMO professional looking, used top quality materials, Jena wire, etc and works and fits my setup beautifully
I say he took on a challenge, as the X5/M3 dock connector is quite different from the ipod type and hence the design method around securing the connector tightly in socket had to accommodate leaving the spring-loaded locking pins in place, which although giving not as low a profile connector as dreamed of, was ultimately the best and likely only solution or option that would reliably and robustly work.
This final successful product was only possible as a result of an incredible amount of care, focus, attention to detail, great dialogue, suggestions and ideas that Jeremy came up with over a few communications with me. I really appreciated this level of passion for detail and care, since had he just built the LOD based on my single original request, idea and spec it's likely that it wouldn't have worked particularly well, if at all. Instead I've ended up with a superb custom product that is likely the only solution that could currently have worked properly
Jeremy's communication was excellent, keeping me well updated on time-scales, when he would be able to commence the build, ongoing progress, construction options, remaining build time, completion and postage stages. Indeed his reply efficiency was better than mine and many professional companies
I think it's worth saying that Jeremy is a private part-time, home-builder, doing this in his spare-time, and although obviously getting a bit out of what he does, I believe that similar to other head-fi community builders, mainly driven by a passion and great love of this field/subject and sharing that with a community of like-minded folk. He's therefore not running a full-time professional company operation and as such there has to be some perspective on what anyone can expect from him and others doing the same thing. Despite this, IMO he's rivaled and exceeded what you could get from many professional outfits and I seriously doubt that I could have gotten such a customized product, even from some of our highly respected outfits in the field and certainly not at the same cost, assuming they would have even taken on such a build.
Apologies for length of post, but thought was important. I for one, am a very happy customer and can unreservedly recommend Jeremy's services and can say that whenever I need something similar in future I'll definately be consulting him
