Did you return it for exchange?

 

Mike

I bought it from Amazon Warehouse Deals. Much to my surprise, not only is the battery pack defective, the power indicator button was broken also.  I bought it for $54 USD. Amazon will refund me the money, but they will not replace it for another one.frown.gif

 

I really didn't want to dish out $90+USD for a battery pack, but I guess I'll have to.

Yes. Now I'm itching to get one again. The QuickStep is an addiction I just can't seem to kick.

Will one of you give me a QuickStep back so I don't have to burn in a new one with an AK100 and an LCD3? I feel pathetic.

Just got my Willy cable to work. As I could not find an adapter, I just soldered the required plug to the cable. Works very well. Even with my 32 ohm Signature DJ headphone, the bass is substantial more powerfull than with the 12 volt setup.

Don't give in to temptation! Stay on the wagon. smile.gif

Seriously, I haven't heard it with the IEM I need it for yet because it's on loan. But by the time I do, Meier's sale will be over so maybe if you really want one back guaranteed, you'd be better off just getting a third one? =/
Sorry!

Alright. Stick to your severely damaged silver QuickStep!

Listening to Charnett Moffett solo acoustic bass album The Bridge right now at work. Just so powerfull at 15 volt on the Sinature DJs. Thanks Mike for making the Willy cable public to us. And thaks to Jan Meier for creating such amazing and powerfull amps.

If you wanted to make me feel horrible, you've succeeded.

And what about the other guy?! No hate there??
post #2322 of 2748
LOL.. No hate here, just envy. I'm more of a fan of the silver QuickStep.

Hi Mike, the Willy cable makes a high frequent audible noise. Not audible when wearing closed cans, but it is a constant noise that might annoy the people around you. Is that only my cable or do you experience the same? Is there a coil inside? These can make such noise.

post #2324 of 2748
Wow, that's the first I've heard of this. I don't know how to advise you. I've always suspected that cylinder is a switch mode power supply. Can you muffle it with felt?
post #2325 of 2748

Oh it is not that bad, I cannot hear it when I have the phones on! On the other hand. the step from 12 to 15 volt is not subtle on my setup with only 320 kb stuff from my Ipod, seems to be an audible step forward for me.
