adhoc: I'm thinking of you...
Found some objective data for you
here are some specs:http://www.fixup.net/products/benchmarks
you can compare those numbers to these:http://www.tangentsoft.net/audio/ppa/amp/benchhttp://www.tangentsoft.net/audio/mint/bench
Check out the crosstalk figures, at below-90db this well into Dual Mono territory, This figure alone accounts for the excellent imaging on this amp.
hey mmortal: Yes the battery was left unsealed on my prototype and is removeable. I couldn't show you the bottom of the board without taking out the battery. I think ulimately, Xin will find a solution and the battery will be made removable before the final production models come out. (that was just me speaking)
lindrone: What do you think about putting our heads and phones together. You know I value your opinons greatly.
Kugino: That is the famous Markertek mini to mini. The original was too long so I cut it to the size I needed and added a Switchcraft 90 degree metal jack. The Markertek is quite a good sounding cable, although I had been prefering a Homegrown Audio silver braided lately with Xin's amps. I'm not using the silver because it broke. I diy'ed that cable and it was quite fragile at the contacts. A lot of strain relief is necessary to keep it from breaking free. JMT sells a similar one and I might just get him to make me a new one.
