Good to know, I'm going to use them basicaly on the go.

Right now I pulled the trigger for a pair of Mad Dogs too. If everything goes nice, they will both be waiting for me in NY when I arrive there 2 January

 

I still don't have the courage to start opamp rolling. Other people said that I should upgrade the opamps from my xonar stx, but I don't even know where to purchase (at least with leckerton I know I can purchase directly with them, but that's not the case with asus).

That looks like that non-slip drawer liner you can get at any hardware store. Seems like a good idea.

700

 

Is that a Sennheiser momentum?

 

I saw a lot of propaganda about it, but didn't realy read any review, how does it sound like?

And what's that beneath the iphone?

The amp is tough and sturdy, but it will still be vulnerable to nicks. If you're concerned about resale value, or just don't want to ding up a nice bit of equipment, a case is a good idea.

 

The amp is about the size of a compact camera. In fact I have a neoprene camera sleeve that I use for my amp when it's not in the case with the other portable equipment.

One of those is a ma the other is a na.  The ma is a soic connection whereas the na is a dip.  I believe you will need a soic to dip adapter, Leckerton carries them.  Please correct me if I am wrong.

Well I ordered the soic so it sounds like I dodged a bullet

Thanks for the quick responses: )

I'm asking about a protective case because I'm planning to take this amp on the road while traveling.

I tend to drop my phones a lot. So I use the otterbox defender series on them. I wish there's something similar for the amp because the weight of my s3+case and the amp can be pretty heavy. I wouldn't want to break anything on or in the amp by dropping the combo on hard surface.

Ehh you will need the adapter if you ordered the SOIC version. Sorry my bad. Was viewing the links on my iPhone so I didn't took notice of it.

 

So, the LME49710NA will work right from the box while the LME49710MA will require some works to be done.

First impression is that its soundstage is big! The sound is well-balanced and extended. It is also very detailed and transparent sounding without being clinical and dull at all. Will need to spend more time with it. There is also a pair of LM6171 sitting there waiting for me to try them out.
I would like to hear impressions of this opamp compared to the 8610 if possible...

Yes, see e.g. Tylls review at http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/very-adult-sennheiser-momentum

Sounds like I should get some LME 49710 and give it a go myself then, thanks. Which opamps have you used in the mkII?
