Ahhh, let me clarify. What I meant is that perhaps we'll come to expect more for less now.

I agree the Arrow has upped the ante when it comes to what people should expect from a portable (if they can put aside their "name brand bragging rights" in favor of SQ at a more reasonable price )
I meant something similar when I implied I'd have to buy a better desktop for really significant improvement. The post wasn't very clear but I was agreeing with you.

When did you place your order?
post #185 of 3052
Yay! Mine's shipped as well, and only a little over a week since I placed my order.

You guys are lucky, I waited over a month from day I ordered to receive.

I ordered on the 10th, March, mine is still under order processing status. Can't wait to listen to this little thing sing.

Just curious if anyone is currently using an Arrow w/ a 6th Gen 160GB iPod Classic... I'm wondering what solution you chose to hold the Arrow + Classic together (i.e. velcro strap, silicone band). If silicone band, what size/circumference (& where did you get it)? Just ordered an Arrow, and am already giddy w/ expectation.

A question for those who know about these things:

I'm currently running my ER4S (stock unmodded) through a line out cable into a Headsix from my iPod Classic.

I could stretch to upgrading the Headsix to the Arrow, but only really if it would be worth it. What do you think? Worth a punt?

Why not add these to your Arrow order. Headphonia.com - Tesa Powerstrips
You'd likely get them cheaper if you asked nicely . I use the small circular Velcro dots, but it makes the things a little thicker. I wish I'd thought of getting the strips as they leave no residue, won't separate accidentally as they need a good pry to get apart (or you can leave a little ""handle" sticking out and pull it to separate components). Kind of like extra strong two-sided tape from what I understand.

I haven't heard a Headsix but it's often compared to the Tomahawk. I heard the Arrow to be a step up from the Tomahawk In SQ, ergonomics and features. Quality amps aren't usually night and day SQ wise (especially if they use the same op-amp) but you'd likely get a good price for your head-six and I haven't heard of anyone who's been disappointed with the Arrow. I know I certainly wouldn't trade mine for another portable.

I'm using that exact same setup temporarily and I can show you here that the "youth" sized silicone bands are way too big. However, broccoli bands are just right, and if you get the right ones they can sound more "organic":

I'd usually agree but lately the broccoli I've had in the beef with garlic sauce from my local chinese take out has been delicious. Other than that broccoli the rest of it is evil
post #195 of 3052
as long as it is steamed properly broccoli is pretty much delicious, but i digress, we are pretty OT, i do like the idea though, ill have to hit up the commissary to get one of those bands
