Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI) - Page 170

Every jack and plug has a maximum amount of cycles (how many times you can put it in and out before it stars to wear down inside.). Due to the frequency of use I put my rig through I knew that the jack on it that I plugged my HP's into would eventually wear down to be looser and provide a less secure fit. I can replace and reterminate my HP's any old day but it's more difficult and expensive to do the same for the E17 - I can't just do the plug, I have to buy a whole new amp. I plan on keeping my amp for a while so I permanently attached the R/A 3.5mm to the E17 which terminates into a female 3.5, effectively making the female jack the jack that gets repetitive wear, not the main one in the unit. 

 

The other reason it's like that is because of my usage habits. I pull and put my rig in my pocket(or bag) upside-down, so that when I reach for it in my pocket, it's the right way up in my hand already. It also means my headphone cable doesn't need to bend in any way to sit in my pocket. So in conclusion, it's both a stress-relief (in two ways) and a repositioning of jack to make it more convenient to use on the go and in my pocket. 

Ahh, I see, but nevertheless, very nice looking rig!

Another DroidDevice that doesnt like to play ball. Wont recognize the E17 at all. :(

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then my go to rig around the house at the moment - 

 

iPhone 3gs > EACE Silver Leopard LOD > iBasso Pelican PB2 > Beyerdynamic DT 531.

 

Im really enjoying this rig right now, The 531's really come alive paired with the PB2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And in the background, A little something Ive been messing about with to see if double amping is good or bad...

 

iPod Classic 160gb > Mundorf Gold LOD > FiiO E17 > Nordost Odin mini to mini > TCG Audio T-Box.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well I can see that yes you can achieve a different sound signature etc, But Im not sold to be honest, I'll stick with my PB2 

and eagerly await the Boomslang DB2, Balanced White Widow for my HD25's, Balanced LOD and then think about a Little Dot DP_I & an S3 with a custom Low Profile Toxic Cables usb to usb.

 

I'll keep you all posted lol!!!
