Does anyone know if an ipowerus battery will fit in it? This post

says that the ipowerus batts are bigger than other 9v batteries, and I measured the battery aperture to be 26.4mm, so it looks tight.

 

Thanks in advance
 

I've used ipowerUS 500mah Li-Polymer 9V in my Stepdance (gen1) for a LONG time (years). I use a wallwart 90%+ of the time, but the battery fits like a charm. If you get Li batteries, make sure you get a charger that can recharge them. NiMh/Cad charges may cause a fire.

 

Of course, I /did/ break down and just ordered a Classic+Daccord for home, and will bring my Jazz to work, putting my Stepdance into reserve.

I think the Quickstep is so close to compete with my desktop Concerto that I am considering selling my desktop system and going 100% portable. I am just not sure if I will regret it in the long run... 

 

 

Is that a JDS Labs ODAC?  Looks different.

ok guys, I bought the xp8000 from Amazon and should get it by tomorrow. I'll order the XPAL Willy cable after that.  I still need to buy the PowerStream slip-on connector, right???

 

Oh, and by the way, the Quickstep is kicking ass!  \m/

You can either get the Powerstream set of multiple adapters -or- just the one you need, from JDS Labs.

See the XP8000 ordering instructions at this link:

I just did this setup with my Stepdance (used the JDS plug adapters). Wow, the 15V really enriched the sound and gives a wider soundstage.

Well worth the effort!

Which headphone - something relatively inefficient?

Thanks again Mike, I just ordered a couple of the slip on connectors from JDS Labs. The XP8000 and my rechargeable 9V batteries mentioned earlier by ClieOS should be here later on today.smile.gif
