Yeh, I found that my volume control know (on the 3MOVE) gets a bit loose after a while. I usually give it a tighten every now and then when I feel it getting loose.

What screwdriver did you buy ? I also intend to get 1 just in case the volume knob comes loose . Apparently even a T3 / T4 screw seems big for it . :(

At any rate, I had to go to "one of those electrical stores" to get the absolute smallest "slotted" screwdriver to tighten it back on.I didn't even know screwdrivers this small even existed. I mean this thing is small (1.0 mm)

All is OK now but I thought I'd give a heads up.

I don't know. It's just this ridiculously small screwdriver. I thought it was a hex head or something but in the end, the thing that worked was a 1.0 mm standard head or some I guess call it a slotted head screwdriver. "some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade".....lol

I would suggest you report the situation to Meier Audio for warranty claim.

A bit of clear nail polish on the screw threads will keep it from working loose, but still allow for easy removal if needed.

I was thinking glue but nail polish makes so much more sense. Thanks !

You can get sets of 5 or 10 micro-screwdrivers for a song and you would be amazed where they come in handy.

I use a 1mm screwdriver with a flat tip. It's just the right size.

It works ? The screw doesn't seem like a flat tip type tho .

@ Woody - what luck :(

 

Battery update.  So, I got the 600 mAh HiTECH battery and 520 mAh iPower battery, but am still waiting on the Maha 9.6V battery.  The good news, both batteries last all day (8+ hours) with IEMs on high current, low gain.  The odd news...the HiTECH says it is only compatible with it's own charger.  I guess they are right as the polarity has been reversed by charging it with the iPower charger.  I can use it in the Stepdance as I can just flip the battery.  It worked fine all day today and I am charging it now...

 

I do plan on retiring it and replacing it for safety sake with another iPower battery.

I will be very curious to hear about the hifiman 602 + Stepdance combination. I think that I am going the DIYmod route for capacity but the 602 combo may sound great.

Here's a noob question for you guys. Will I recognize a considerable amount of "wow" factor if I upgraded from Ibasso D4 Mamba to Stepdance? All of my portables are low impedance cans!

The Stepdance is better but it's not a huge jump in "wow" factor.  The D4 with upgraded opamps comes closer, but it's not quite as good (but close), nor as powerful as the Stepdance with high impedance cans.
