I envy your Zana deux :green with envy: i'm not usually a big tube fan, but somehow I get a feeling I would like this.
Thanks,
As far as the Pico goes, that is my backup for low impact easy grab and run. The portable that i have to let go of is the Hornet M. A good amp and a good amount of bass but not very accurate bass. It works for some cans. Also not as detailed as the Pico or as low of a aaaaah, call it distortion level or something. I don't feel the blackness of the soundstage that i feel in both the Pico and Lisa.

Nice cabling on the top picts to the ipod. The bottom one looks like super high grade cabling for some reason.

Thanks makes for quite a compact lisa rig that I can fit in a pocket without much drama, sounds wicked too, love silver bullets and being made in my home-town here makes them easy to get a hold of. The guys at eichmann have been very helpful.

yeah 18AWG jena is very photogenic IMO, the onther pic I took at the same time with the depth of field on the wire looks wicked too, but since this is a thread about lisa III I thought it best to have the focus on her. besides she might get jealous and stop giving me eargasms actually got heaps of great pics that day; might post some more tomorrow. about time some other people started posting more pics too, I know there are more proud lisa III owners out there; where are they?? bring on the pics!!!

I wanna see a woody!!!

OK....here are mine. She's a beauty indeed

Got a nice converter coming from qusp so that I can use my LiveWires too!

Not much to complain about for me at this point. I plan on adding a portable cap dock at some point in the future for enhanced transportable use.

Always interested in finding the best cans for my music tastes and set up...but as of now, I am pleased.

Enjoy the pics...

nice work from steve as always; aussie cablers FTW!!

nice rig man, the black with silver is my favorite lisa; wouldnt mind a woody, but not as practical for me for portable

@Ride - THAT is beautifull! How does the Ultrasone perform paired with the LISA III ?
post #99 of 229
I like how they sound....but have not tried anything else with my Lisa so I'd be curious to hear what others are enjoying.

It's an ongoing issue...always the search to improve things!

I am using the D10 dac with lossless on my iRiver H140 (120gb), feeding the Lisa III to my Ultrasone Ed. 9 with very fine results.
