Justin,

 

I realize that there are a number of factors that come into play, but I'm just curious if you can offer an estimate for when the new GS-X amps will be completed and ready to ship. Thanks!

Let's see.  Painting, building, testing, preparing, shipping... puts it at your doorstep in 2013 :p

He seemed pretty optimistic that he would be able to start shipping them before the end of the year when I exchanged emails with him last weekend. Not sure if anything has changed since then, but I haven't seen any reason not to take him at his word. Though I am sure you would prefer an update right from the man himself.

Is that all you did in a weeks time?

No..   Just joking around.  This sounds really good actually.

How much is the new GS-X with DACT?

What is the XLR pinout? My CD player has north american standard (pin 2 cold and pin 3 hot).
post #87 of 3768

$2495, normal pinouts.  Only true if there are any left.  The next run may cost more.

post #88 of 3768
Solude, normal pinouts mean pin 2 hot and pin 3 cold? So it's going to be phase inverted if connected to pin 2 cold and pin 3 hot source, is it correct?
post #89 of 3768

Normal, as in the same as everything else on the planet.

OK, the standard 3-pin XLR pinouts are pin 1 - ground, pin 2 - positive (hot), and pin 3 - negative (cold). However, American companies used to (probably still) use pin 3 "hot" and pin 2 "cold". On some devices, there is a phase inverter, for example on your PerfectWave DAC II (don't know the exact pinouts it uses).

In a speaker system, you just swap the +/- on speaker side or the amp side to correct the mismatch between the source and the amp. I guess it's a bit harder in a headphone system.
