Check out Dollarama.  I used a case from there to keep all the parts separated when I was building  cmoy amps.  Hope this helps!

 

Nice rigs guys!

The volume of the sound on headphone is louder when I plug it in direct to the s2 rather than to the fiio e17 with the following setting

12db gain

20 odd volume

compared to direct to headphone jack with half- 60% ish the volume bar

 

Its fine when it is used as a dac, normal volume and everything , just as an amp

I have some small plastic cases that Analog Devices sent my opamps to me in. They already have the antistatic foam mounted (a must have for plastic cases) PM me your mailing address and I'll drop one in the mail for you. smily_headphones1.gif

Ok - so I use the Nano as portable gear and not the Touch. I use my Beyerdynamic iems with the Nano as the Klipsch are just too fragile for outdoor use (neither pictured here).

Just get an altoids tin(or any small plastic case) and cut a piece of foam to fit inside. Then you can press the pins of the op-amps into the foam for a tight secure fit.

Hmm that is odd. I know what you mean though and personally i think its normal. Pluggin directly into my iPod Classic initially gives me a louder response, but i find that the sound is significantly more full when using the e17. My iPod has a LOD to the e17 and usually im sitting pretty around the 28-35 volume mark.

I don't understand when people say things like this....they are in your ears!

BBE pro, basically eq for the iphone plus a "sound field" filter that sort of enhances the soundstage with a little DSP. I think it's the best app I've bought so far

I'm assuming you're using the E17 with full volume on the source, am I correct?

I wouldn't worry about storage. The cardboard cases that Leckerton ships them in are plenty sturdy.

 

I'll post pics when I can. And maybe the current state of my mobile system, just to stay on topic. tongue.gif

My choice out of all the apps I've owned, too.

I am using it with 50% volume on the source on both times

 

correction: I am using the note 2, god knows why I typed S2, my S2 broke and won't charge

If you are using the E17, make sure your source is at full volume. Long story short, the amp is designed to receive a line-level signal, and the headphone output at 50% is well below line level.

Yep 50% is to low, set it to full or 80% - 90%
