I've been wondering the same thing but have been completely unable to find any pics online that show the rear of the case.

I am bitterly disappointed at this news...

I'm not surprised as Fostex has already shown they have no idea how to make a descent case. Should not be that hard, one would think.

Is there really no North American dealer for this case?

I have also been trying out a Tamrac 5522 that is perfectly sized for my 3 component rig ( but little else) and a Domke Rugged wear F5XA which is a step up size-wise.

Fostex took a photo of my modded case (Head-fier Lillee recommended case and design), they were interested

in how I had cut out some of the back portion for access to usb ports, filter, gain and digital (thanks again to Lillee), so maybe there might be a

Fostex case Mark 2 in the future.

I'm liking the Tamrac quite a lot. It's been doing an admirable job fulfilling the role I had hoped it would, that of a compact bag for a three component portable rig and the barest of essential accessories. I've been using it for day excursions or travel with my portable 3 component rig, backup battery, IEMs, cables etc.
I've been using the Tamrac for walks while listening to my Sennheiser HD25-1II. It's a nice compact option that doesn't get in the way or attract too much attention. It obviously isn't big enough to contain the Sennheisers but on walks these stay around my neck when not on my ears.
Build quality of the Tamrac is their usual high standard with just enough padding to add effective protection but not so much as to add unnecessary bulk. For the price, the zippers are good quality and function easily. The bag can handle a fair bit of inclement weather. I've used it in rain and snow with a zipper open just enough to allow the item cable to exit. The well designed flap and robust fabric keep the wet out to a reassuring degree.
My only gripe has been the shoulder strap which I found a bit fiddly and uncomfortable. I replaced it with the Tamrac camera strap shown in the photos which includes a leather padded part on the shoulder. While this does add quite some bulk to the whole package it is not felt when worn across shoulder in use and whatever bulk it adds in other use is tolerable..







For trips extending into the need for AC power and requiring me to pack the wall warts for the Continental V2 and XP4000 as well as AC to USB adapters for the Fostex and IPod the Domke is the better option.
With my current three piece rig, there is simply no room for the AC power components in the Tamrac.

Pics using the pelican case please?

And any of you compare the fostex to the pico amp/dac combo?

What realistic battery life are you getting from the fostex?

I used to own the Pico amp/DAC and loved it but I sold it and still own the Fostex.
The Pico was a lovely jewel and sounded great but I got more mileage out of the Fostex.
I often use the Fostex now with a Pico Power so that tells you something bout how much I like Justin's amps and his house sound.
Having just pulled another long flight, I can say I get *at least* five hours from a charge with the Fostex. The weak link for me is the iPod Classic that chokes after five.







I have since acquired a Pico Power and a Sony PHA-1. I'm going to need a bigger case. Maybea Pelican 1400.

Does anyone know of a Canadian source for the LC-P1 case? The best price I can find so far is $81 shipped from the US which makes it a bit rich for my taste.

Anyone use the HP-P1 with an iPad Mini?

Any carry solutions for such setup?

 

Cheers!
