I got my cable today (I believe you have a Note 2?). Have not ordered Leckerton though.

 

Please give impressions as to the SQ compared to the Note 2 DAC.

Yes, I tried out the DAC, that's how big can confirm the Hakshop cable works. That was with the Note 2 though, not used it with the S3 yet (Note 2 and International S3 USB audio seems to be identical though, so should work without problems - I believe it has already been confirmed with the Int S3).

He's keeping us in suspense as he knows we are living vicariously through him at the moment lol

lol yeah im only interested in the dac really my headphones are easy to drive.i find the glacier a little pricey and i think they have the same cirrus logic dac

It's been a long time since I listened via Siyah kernel, so my comparisons won't be particularly valid there. I really like the sound from Leckterton, particularly impressed by how punchy and clear everything is. I think the Leckerton really hits a sweet spot with very good performance at a price point that compares very favourably with other options (I have the Intruder and HeadAmp Pico USB DAC/amp, and while I like the sound of the Pico better overall when paired with my main portable cans, the T5p, it is close to twice the price of the Leckterton). The Leckterton is really nicely thought out for portable use also with the charging bypass, and zero gain option so that it'll keep a pristine black background even with IEMs.

So would you say it improves the sound of the Note 2 worth the cost of the Leckerton and inconvenience of carrying it around?

For me, yes. For users with very sensitive IEMs who get driven mad by the hiss present in Android phones, including the Note 2, yes also. For users who will use this with their laptop (or heck, even desktop) and extract value for money that way too, yes. Probably worth mentioning that the ability to swap out opamps also adds another facet to the Leckteron worth thinking about.

 

As to carrying it around - I'd recommend getting a snap on rear case and using very strongly adhesive velcro to attach the Leckerton to the case, and of course the Hakshop cable. Then you can just snap on the case with the Leckerton already attached, and you've got a very tidy rig (that doesn't involve using bands which obscure/obstruct the phone screen). That's what I'll be doing once I get stuff together for that, will make for easy changing of USB DACs also, for when I'd rather use the Intruder to listen on balanced headphones.

The case idea is pretty good, I'll give you that.

 

You answered my question even though I phrased it a little wrong. By carry it around, I mean lugging one more thing with me on travel for being on an airplane 6-12 hrs (depending on destination). As I just purchased Miracles, and I can definitely see me using it at the office or in the hotel room attached to my laptop; it is seeming like its a go.

 

Supposidly as I gave my fiance my 535's and she blessed the purchase of the Miracles, my Christmas present has been purchased... Maybe I can squeeze in one of these if I am smooth enough heh.
