And under "Settings," I have volume set to "High."

 

I also don't use Replay Gain.
 



 


oh well, i guess this shows that it's a $90 MP3 player. i think for what it is, it's the best $90 i've spent on portable audio gear smily_headphones1.gif

Elna is generally considered to be good cap for couping purpose. Don't get the BlackGate though, it is not worth the money.

meaning i should accept only if it's a free upgrade, right?

Hey, have you tried A/Bing the L1 and L3 cables?  Do they really sound much different?

A pair of BlackGate can cost 1/3 of the LOD (if not a lot more), I doubt it will be for free. Even if it is free, I personally won't want to use BlackGate as it sounds way too dark for me.

I've read all the topic and discussion here and I am quite excited to try Sansa Fuze + with LOD and connect it to Sunrise Xcape IEM and Fiio E7 amp :)

 

However, I am not sure about one thing: Are we talking about only <5% difference between these 2 products?:

 

1. Simple L6 from amazon ~7£ http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-Line-Cable-Sandisk-Player/dp/B004M172KO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304956168&sr=1-1

 

2. Superior L6 modded from ebay ~25£ http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SANSA-FUZE-LINE-OUT-DOCK-LOD-HEADPHONE-AMPLIFIER-/250715651265?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item3a5fd13cc1#ht_1286wt_1163&afsrc=1

 

Is it worth to pay 17£ more for a piece of cable? I would like to try do a mod myself, but I have never done anything like this. Can you please make a short list what items you used for a modification and what tools do you need to have? Thanks in advance ;) Nice job by the way ;)

i bought the one in #2. it's not just a piece of cable, the second one uses Elna Silmic Audio II caps, which are better than the cheap caps in the first one. i haven't received mine yet, but i think that if ur getting a LOD, might as well get the good one.

If you never solder anything before, this might not be an easy project to do. Once you put in the cost of a soldering iron and all the little things you need to do the mod, it might cost you more then the price of that eBay LOD.
