I'm still waiting for a UK release date angry_face.gif

They only accept a wire transfer for international orders, and I only use Paypal, for security reasons, and in case something happens after the sale, as Paypal always got my back covered.

Doesn't really relate to paypal from the heading sure lots of people skip that if they want to use paypal.

 

I guess I wont be ordering one either, was considering it as I'm also outside the US and there's no info on a release date anywhere else for the muses edition.

Thank you Tim, yep that really sucks, big time. In the end, If I find all doors closed, I will have to ask someone to buy it for me and ship it ,wink.gifand the drinks will be on me, as he will be doing me a big favor.

@turokrocks

You might want to do a google shopping search because they are starting to show up other places, I tried today and got 4 different places one which accepts paypal. I didn't look into it any further so don't know if they accept international orders.

None where in stock though.

Hey cssarrow,

 

 

I saw your diagram with recommendations for opamps a few pages back, but just to be sure: what is your top recommendation for the RCA buffer? The LME49710HA? (and will I need an extra adaptor?)

post #1136 of 3128

The LME49710HA, is a single channel opamp, hence the 710 designation, instead of 720 for dual channel.  HA -means metal can opamp.

In this case you need two opamps and an adapter to go from dual TO-99 package to DIP8 which is what you use on the E1's.

IMO, they are easily one of the best sounding opamps you can use these days.

Thanks for the reply, robscix! Yes, cssarrow posted a link to ebay with a DIP8 dual version so thats what I was going to get - I should have phrased my question better, I meant if I should get an extra adaptor (like with the headphone buffers where theres apparently no space for them without an extra).

post #1138 of 3128

Yes, grab a few extra DIP8 sockets used on PCB's.  These allow you to extend the socket on the E1 upwards to clear the caps when you use larger opamps such as the dual LME49710 modules.

IIRC, you need 2 extra for each socket in the headphone section, so grab 4. They are very cheap.

Got it, thanks :)

LOL...I have been Googling and emailing many since morning, and many just replied "Sorry we have to update our FAQ as we do not ship internationally!!!"

Neobits has not replied, so lets hope for the best.

 

Thanks 4real, please keep me posted if something comes up your way, and I will inform you if  I get a positive reply.
