The Best Portable Solution Yet for Powering the Stepdance at 15-Volts
I figured out a way to attach the XPAL Willy Cable WI15 to the Stepdance with NO SOLDERING REQUIRED!
Thanks to an earlier post in this thread by Head-Fi member Avi, I ordered the PowerStream Slip-On Barrel Connector Assortment that he is using with his Jameco 12-Volt regulated linear power supply.
Just gambling that the PowerStream Slip-On Connector which fits into the Stepdance jack would slip onto at least one of the tips provided with the XP8000 Battery Pack, I was thrilled to discover today that it works perfectly!
Edit: If you want to order this stuff...
1) Start by ordering and receiving the XP8000 (or XP18000) - They are available at many online retailers.
2) Then REGISTER your XP8000 (or 18000) online, so that you can get a discount when you order the Willy Cable WI15 ($7.95 instead of $19.95).
3) Order the XPAL Willy Cable WI15 here (pretending that you intend to use it with a Toshiba Satellite M55-S1352 (notebook computer):
XPAL now has the Meier Audio Corda Stepdance in their catalog of devices (thanks to me)
4) Order the PowerStream PST-WX07 Slip-On Barrel Connector Assortment here: http://www.powerstream.com/dc-tips2.htm
(It's $7.00 + shipping for the complete set of connectors, not for just one connector.)
Order just the one adapter you need from here:
JDS Labs sells a coaxial power adapter for their cMoy BB v2.03 amp that fits the power jack on the back of a Stepdance:
