I got my Quickstep running at 15 volts thanks to you and your posts. Awesome sound and much appreciated. Thanks!!
^ For sure! If you let a piece of metal conduct the positive and negative terminals you are headed for a meltdown.
(I travel with three spare batteries and I take care to keep them safely isolated. It's easy but you have to do it.)
I've been using a Meier "Move".
Great with my rockboxed iPod Mini.
Good with the iPhone 4s.
Didn't improve the 5gen video.
This one, having a "warm" signature, would become "intensely" warm if you see what I mean.
But the 5gen. video still sounds better than Move+Mini or iPhone.
I love the crossfeed otpion, but.
Now I was wondering (and forgive me if this is not the right place to ask this question): what amp should I get for the 5gen video?
A Stepdance?...a Quickstep?
Is there anything in the 100$range I could get here instead on the forum that would improve it?
Maybe a Digizoid Zo2?
What I mean is that rather than start spending 2/300$ on an amp, I would probably be better off buying a second hand Sony PHA-1 amp/dac instead, and use it with my iphone, don't you think?
Basically: do you know of a reasonably priced amp that would improve, NOT the volume, but the SQ (giving a "fuller body" - if you want - to the SQ) of my 5gen video?
You are lucky those are NiMH. If those are Li-ion, it could have exploded. Do be careful from now on.
