They were out of metal faceplates when I bought mine so I got wood ones, had them refinished by a company I know, Piano finish ftw!

Hehe...reminds me of when people carried around boomboxes in the 80's!  Of course you can, but why would you want to?

Its interesting how fundamentally opposed so many Head-Fiers seem to be to the concept of 'transportable' audio:

 

- when I posted that it would be great to have a section for 'transportable audio', one wag claimed that all headphone rigs are 'transportable'. I guess he has a Woo WA22 on his desk at work and packs it all up to take home on Friday night ....

 

- those hellbent on having something that fits in a shirt pocket start shrieking the minute they see a compontent that doesnt compare favourably in size to an iPod Classic.

I just picked up a Lisa III second hand, with the power supply. However the power connector cable has an end which is bad. Where would I find another one for purchase? I have an email out to Brad @ Triad, but haven't heard back yet. I'm assuming I should be able to get one from them, but with how long it's taking I would like to find another option so I can get this cable *yesterday*.

 

I think this could work, but it seems quite low-brow to me!

the triad cable is pretty straight forward; quality, but you should be able to replace it fairly easily without any issues with sound. i made myself a higher gauge (2 x 16awg UPOCC) DC connector cable. but any 2.1mm DC->2.1mm DC connector cable of reasonable gauge will work fine and of course unless you are using it while on the power supply, the quality makes no difference as long as it copes with the current needed to charge the battery.

 

welcome to the club btw!!

Thanks for the help. I will double check the gauge of that el-cheapo DC connector in that link, and probably just go for that then to keep me up and running. 

 

The Lisa sounds awesome, and I could definitely tell a difference using the power unit over just the batteries. It's a fantastic stationary setup for work. I love coming in each day and flipping the toggle switches.  biggrin.gif

tell me about it, especially considering my transportable rig IS a home rig that runs on batteries and the same people probably carry a mobile phone and laptop with them to check their facebook/twitter pages on the way to work

no problem, i cant see it needing to cope with any more than about 500ma @ 18vdc (9w), so really 2 x 20-22awg should suffice, i just went for overkill as that is my way :D

Yep, but many have moved to a tablet, preferably one that talks to their iDevice. Laptops, even of the Macbook Air 'barely there' form factor, are just so 2009 with the latte set.

 

Still plenty of shrieking when you mention a device that doesnt fit a very specific definition of 'portable', though :)
