EVERYONE on this site should be using ASIO drivers.  Its mandatory for audio workstations so I think that you audiophiles would also benefit from an asio driver....I assumed you were all running them.  

 

There a great free program ASIO for all....supports all sounds cards I think.  By default windows uses MME/DirectX to process your sound so instead of letting that driver mangle your sound you all should be using a transparent low latency ASIO driver.  Maybe you all know this but this is the first I've seen it mentioned.

 

I want to buy this amp as well...it looks great and I love tubes.  Anything that gives a singer better sound in their cans will make them sing better so I'm wondering if I could use this as an amp only w/out DAC features.  I'll check out the specs dumb questions but this is the first AMP I've seen thats gotten my blood up.

Where did you pick up the Mullard 4010? 

I almost ordered the Russian tubes from ALO but they wanted $30 to ship to Canada. I'll try some other retailers first.

So I received the Passport a few days ago, but only opened it today. After charging it for a few hours (I think 3 hours), I plugged it in to the Pan Am. When I flipped the Pan Am on, I heard a quick crackling sound and I started to smell what seemed to be like burning plastic. I immediately turned the Pan Am off and disconnected all of the cables. I know that I am (barely) within my 30 days warranty period, so I immediately sent in an email to ALO and an RMA request. I'm sure that this is an isolated incident that easily can be resolved, as I have seen NO issues at all from anyone else.

Is Alo Audio closed over the holidays? I sent them a few emails a few days ago in regards to the Pan Am and never got a reply.

Btw Palchiu, can you PM me where you got the Mullard tubes?

Much appreciated
post #87 of 668

ALO was closed over the holidays, but they're open now. As long as you email them on a business day, they are VERY good with responding to emails-though it  says emails may take two business days to be responded two, I've always had same day responses. So be patient, as I'm sure you will get a reply soon. 

 

Palchiu, could you also PM me where to get the Mullard tubes? I'd really appreciate it beerchug.gif

hello amigos,

 

i'm just curious, exactly how long do you have to charge the passport battery pack?  there isn't any light indicator that'll state if the battery is done charging.

 

also, on the headfonia review, he said that the pan am came with some usb cable, ipod cable etc, but i didn't get any of those when i bought the amp.

 

did any of youse get any cables besides the wall plug?

 

alrighty, take it easy y'all.

Battery charger will stop charging when it's full, and will become green lights on.

 

USB & ipod cables are options.

Does anyone know if the Pan-Am will work with the iPad Camera Connection kit to get 24 bit? Thanks
