So you sold off all your gear? Does that mean your customs as well as other universals?

Yep. I do have an AS-2 inbound sometime or another.

Thanks for the impression.

 

I noticed that the 2StepDance website listed both "active balanced ground" and "star ground" while the Leckerton listed "true ground". Does anyone know how this translate to difference in performance? Dark corners of the Internet say "For single supply applications the right virtual ground used in conjunction with a single star ground, might be a reasonable compromise", but I would really appreciate more perspectives.

Does FutureSonics accept remolding of their customs? I always thought this is not the case.

Nope.  ;)

Interesting. Looks like you're selling the arrow as well ;). Funny how most people bought into that unit based on hype instead of pure performance (at least when compared to similar or even cheaper options). I'm curious though shane what sound signature are you after (an IEM you would keep for the long term).

I disagree.  There isn't a better sounding amp in that package size w/ those features.  Not one.  I sold the Pico Slim and kept the Arrow.

I think the Arrow is a great amp at its price point.  I really liked it with the Whipmod but that's sold and I need to fund a completely new set up, in which the Arrow won't have a place.  Unlike some with seemingly bottomless wallets, I must sell some things to acquire new and for me, the hobby portion (trying new things, comparing, writing impressions/reviews, selling) is as much fun as the listening to the music, and frankly gives me excuse to listen more. I'm sure I'll be trying the 5g Arrow when it comes out too.

 

Anyway, what Nick is able to do for $279 is really unprecedented.  Nothing under $300 even comes close and apparently you have to spend more than double to get better.  I guess I'll find out b/c the RXMKIII will probably be part of my next set up.

I'm in the same ball park as you :). I sold my W3000ANVs to fund my current  Custom IEMs as they were very well worth the price IMO. I don't plan on getting rid of them either. They match my signature preference to a T. I was debating on selling the O2 but when I listened to it earlier with my IE80s (especially for Rock music) I just can't lol. I'm still on the fence regarding this Amp from this company (TBA) and really want to say no go to save some money............... :( rolleyes.gif

I wanted to buy the UHA6s2, but shipping is $40 to Australia... :(

post #220 of 2203

Hmm. Did you see if Nick could do basic shipping to Australia? You'd have to waive him of any liability though if he was to even consider that...
 

post #221 of 2203

I don't know who Nick is. :(  And I'll consider it if it's still a relatively safe option.

I'm talking about the owner of the company (Leckerton Audio). Contact him via email and see if he can make any accommodations regarding shipping costs. I'm sure if he was to ship it via basic shipping (no tracking) they shipping would be significantly cheaper. Not to mention he is trust worthy and I don't think you'd have to worry about receiving your package. But you'd have to waive him of any liability with such shipping. To give you an example of what I mean. If I was to ship to England with tracking it would cost around $45.00. But if I did basic shipping it would be around $16.00.

What is an actual buttery life of this amp?

Battery life:

  • >30 hours typical, analog input
  • >10 hours typical, S/PDIF input

 

I'm a bit skeptical regardless about 30 hours..... But that is what is listed on their website.

post #225 of 2203

I do like buttery amps! :P

 

I'm going to contact Nick to see what can be done.
