I finally got mine. Listening to it now. Part of my frustration with the late delivery had to do with not being able to compare this with my other amps which sold way earlier than the delivery of Arrow. 

 

I'll tune back in with more impressions once I spend some time with it. Initially nothing jumps out as "AMAZING" but that's a good thing in my book.

sure it wont sound amazing on first listen by just checking your portable setup =)

post #260 of 357

I had an excellent synergy with ER4S from the day one. I hook it to my tiny ODAC and using an oyadie interconnect, arrow is truly an amazing product. 

post #261 of 357

Just got mine this morning. Very happy with it. I am trying to build the most portable rig possible and I am VERY happy with the size of the arrow, so thin, not to mention the most awesomely tiny mini cable of all time!! Really love the treble boost. I'm not a basshead and finally an end to the discrimination of bass-boost only!

 

I got no instructions. It seems lost stuff is straight-forward. A couple of questions:

1. On one of the inputs there is a second label "chg". What is that? Charge?

2. Does the light go out when the battery is charged?

3. With the two inputs, if you join them using an interconnect, will it cause a quantum rupture and make a worm-hole or destroy the universe?

 

So what are you guys using to attach it to your DAPs? In the past I've used those rubber straps but I want to be able to slip this in and out of my pocket easily and the rubber doesn't allow that. I have been thinking of using the stickies from those 3M removable hooks. They will stick it perfectly and be completely out of the way. The problem with them is although they are removable they will basically mean I can't use the DAP without the amp attached unless I want to keep buying the stickies and re-sticking them. Anyone come up with other options?

i think the light goes green when its fully charged. i forgot though, because i usually charge it for 1-2 hours and its ready to go!

 

not sure what chg means, since it uses USB for the charging the batteries

 

velcro is another method to attach the arrow at the back of the arrow. i use a small amount of blu-tak though, works wonders as well!

 

and the answer to #3 is yesL3000.gif

Blu-tak, interesting. Does it hold it securely enough?

1-That is for future upgrade. If I am not mistaking if you use his USB DAC cable it can charge and send analog signal to your DAC at the same time provided you are using that port for input usage.

2-The light turns off autmoatically. When you are using it it is bright red, when you are not using it it dims and slowly turns off. When battery low it ill flash red quickly. The charging is fast. I have yet to have arrow run out of battery before any of my DAP.

3-It might, I advice you not to do so for the sake of humanity :D
 

I actually bought 4 silicon legs I had from Fiio, you can buy it from ebay but I cant seem to find it.

Another question... it's best use the lowest gain setting that gives sufficient volume right?

I have been using Sennheiser Momentum and Beyer DT1350s and both are fine on 0 gain.

Are they removable?

Yes - it's just a heavy duty ahesive tape on one side.  The other side acts like velcro - but it secures extremely effectively.  I won't use anything else now.
