New iQube V2 is coming! - Page 7

post #91 of 182
I feel my LISA III and iQube are two different types of amps, so I don't really rank them.

The LISA III is detailed but slightly warmer and seems a more forgiving amp.

The iQube is a very neutral and IMHO more detailed but does show up all the problems in the original source.

Time for some news again

Well it is time for some news again and good news I think it is.
The iQube V2 sound has been approved and the design has been frozen. This means we can move on to production stage! Once we have the purchasing and delivery schedules I can fix production and then I will know when we will be ready to actually ship the first units.

The packaging has been redesigned, we have now used a metal casing. This can also be used as a transport packaging when travelling. The band for holding your rig together has also been renewed.
No longer rubber but it is now an elastic and velcro band. it will fit nearly any size setup.

Please find some updated pictures below.

Aahh, I know I am being picky here. I was sssooo hoping that you would have used the rubber bands again instead of the velcro. I even kept asking here when the iQube V2 was first announced and I felt like those rubber bands made the whole setup sleek and special. I understand that the velcro can fit various setups but it just is not as luxurious. Instead, I would've preferred to have two different sizes of rubber bands, or even just one rubber band that is stretches to fit everything.

Can't you just buy rubber bands that were used with the V1?

No, those rubber bands were made for the 5G iPod which was thicker than the 6G iPod. The old rubber bands would be too big for the 6G (which I have) and the newer iPods that are out now. Those rubber bands were masterpieces of industrial design.

Go to Specs or similar and they have rubber bands that are not as thick and will work fine.

Rubber band

Well what I can do is supply both the rubber band and the velcro with the V2.
With the V2 being wider then V1 it will probably fit also 6G.

I will check and see. (I must also check quantities)

BTW the rubber band can be bought sperately on our webshop.

Thanks Hans,
Like the paper clip, or the stapler, that rubber band from your first iQube was an industrial design masterpiece. That velcro just isn't the same.

Bucking the trend here but I love the look of that velcro, will that be available for purchase on your site too aswell as the rubber bands?

Any idea on the power it will give out, Hans?

Yeps the velcro will come for sale separately as well.

The output power is the same as the V1 because they have the same analogue circuitry. I shall confirm the specs later, OK?

Updated spec V2

The iQube website has just been updated with the new specification of the iQube V2.

The major information concerns the USB and digital section.

You can find the spec here.

I think weight would be smart to include in the specs, both with and without batteries.
