Please don't think that I'm picking on just you, panda, but it's a small thread. You are not the only one.

People just come into the middle of the thread and without doing any research, they ask the same question that has already been asked, and, answered. I can understand if a thread, like the JH-13 thread which has almost a thousand posts, you are not going to spend the evening reading "War and Peace".

But if you're truly interested in a particular subject, then I feel you should spend 15 minutes to get caught up. There's only 5 or 6 pages in this thread.

Or at least you can make an effort and say "I really don't have the time to re-read a thousand pages, so can anyone tell me the answer to...".

Basic thread etiquette, like not writing in caps. I guess this has been discussed in the "http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f11/what-kids-think-its-just-dismaying-460087/" thread.
Might a well Sticky this question with the, is burn in real, & do cables effect the sound.. Brought up so many times..

A balanced portable amp.. Quite a achievement. I am a strong believer in balanced headphones.. Hopefully this will bring balanced to the for front since portable is so popular these days..

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Jamato is suggesting you build your own cable. A few pages back Ray said the connector is approximately 2 dollars, and I'm looking at some balanced cabling on Redco for $0.46/foot... seems like you could make a cable for well under 20 dollars with some basic soldering skills.

I've never done it myself (but have been looking into it), but I'm sure the guys (and gals) in the DIY forum could tell you all about it.

yea i get the impression that is what he's driving at. but the thing is, i have no diy skills or experience, and i simply do not have the time to learn ( when you're up at 2am ON A WEEKEND NIGHT trying to finish your homework, you know you don't have the time to do any diy). also some cables are not available for diy, like the whiplash TWag. so i'm looking at the worst ( and most likely) scenario where i have to buy a ready-made cable for each of my iem, instead of making them myself.

RSA Protector

nvm found the answer.
post #127 of 902
hey ray, since you have bought the 4 pin connectors, and you got a great mil-spec cable, you could offer a balanced with the amp right? much like you what you did when you created a low profile lod for the RSA Shadow.

I am really working with some great manufacturers of IEMs to have them make the balanced cable for the IEMs that they manufacture. Also Whiplash is making me the very first balanced cable for the JH 13PRO. As I have mentioned before that I have 1000 connectors coming hopefully soon so I can devide them between JH Audio, Westone, Ultimate ear & Whiplash Audio, they will be making the cables for their own IEMs & Whiplash will be making the after market balanced cable to those who would like his wire.
Cheers.

if you remember the shadow thread, someone mentioned that your lod sounded so great with the shadow may be due to the fact that the wiring in the shadow and the wire in the lod is the same. so i was thinking if you can expand on this idea, and have the entire rig made out of your wires, won't that be fantastic??

The Shadow has a trace not wire and the wire would appear to be way too stiff to use for IEM's. I would think Ray offering the connectors as he stated would be a very doable option.

Can't wait

Just simple question about balanced cable. Can I simply take stock cable from JH13 and change conector to this balanced?
post #133 of 902
I could be wrong but I understood the stock cable is a 3 wire and you need four wires for balance. At the RMAF JH Audio used an different cable when he created the balance cable to use with the Apache at the show. It was from his aviation business which need the extra wire for the microphone.

^The idea of a balanced cable is that each negative should have its own ground.

Och, ok thanks.
