That's one cool case.
So cool I ordered one for my iPod 5.5G.
Actually, when i built the Mini^3, i wasnt satisfied. i figured out that the default LOD caps were compressing everything, making the sound congested.
basically, this is just a desperate attempt to get the default caps off. and also, the LOD also contains Ceramic caps inside (i know, ceramics might be a big No No, but, i was desparate)
So its like 25 V 100uF caps and .1uF ceramics.
when i used these Vishay Caps without the .1uF ones, the sound wasnt complete, it was like the Caps were eating a part of the spectrum.
using the .1uF ones had alot of treble, but very less bass. i saw that 10uF caps when used to bypass .1uF Polypropylene caps had more bass, i heard bass that i hadn't had on the RE0s before.
i am basically going to experiment alot with the Caps on LODs in a few days. targets would be 100uF Nichicon Caps (Bipolar Muse series) and the Caps in the LOD that ClieOS had.
using just electrolytics seems to kill the treble in my songs.
you know, theres some pretty well documented science that explains what you have found out and will predict the basic experiments you will do. the input impedance of your amp combined with the output impedance of the DAP and the caps form a high pass filter. using 100uf is just going to be less linear for no reason versus 5-10 uf. youve already tried about as good as it gets for an lod, a 5-10uf electro bypassed with a >.1uf polypropylene. all film would be better, but thats not gonna fit in the lod. high quality ceramics really arent that bad, i prefer film for analogue filter, but np0/c0g are pretty decent for bypass, almost nothing worse than crappy ceramics though
nothing wrong with experimenting of course. if you want an excel file that will help you to calculate cap size vs input impedance (generally the value of your pot) shoot me a pm with your email; i'll forward it to you.
This is not my serious rig. It only for ultra portable use when it not practical to carry my h140 and d10 out. The extension cable is made by monster. That the best i can get. If only there is a 3.5mm jack that is small in diameter.
Anyway, i doubt there is a better looking case to my eye imo
