Yes, there are indeed, actually... the whole player is controlled by physical buttons. (not touch screen) That's just one big duck off screen for video playback, which is pointless to me really but the sound...man the sound! It's all about the internal amp and Cirrus Logic's CS4398 DAC inside. (Same DAC used in Colorfly C4) they do not sound the same though (just cover myself wink.gif)

This model is CK4+ (which I keep forgetting) has a different button layout to the original.

CK4+ Run around using these buttons.




Should hear it Achmedisdead, it's like ksc75smile.gif Just makes me grin from ear to ear.

QUSP who hand made it is a member here. PM him, tell him you saw mine and go from there. It fits perfect.

So we have another example of a Cirrus Logic DAC producing excellent sound...what will the Wolfson lovers think of you now? wink_face.gif I do like the physical design of the unit....very clean. How big is the screen?

I'll stay well away from the Wolfson clan thank you. There's enough brand name wars I need to keep tabs on as it is. wink.gif

Screen size is: 4.3 inches

It's about ipod touch footprint (photo's make it look confusing alone) however a touch thicker.

LODs with built-in DACs... I can only imagine how expense the high-end cables will be!

and then you might be able to have a more compact setup.

 

Thanks for the tip, I'll try double amping.

But I must say, the adapter-DAC is surprisingly good for a $30 plastic bit.

Nice system, but I'm curious why you are using an external DAC with an amp with a DAC.

Rudi, what does right angle mean for LCD 2 ? Always a pleasure to see your rigs!

thought the lcd is open back!?confused.gif

post #480 of 15049

I've heard the LCD-2 with the CLAS and an ALO amp (can't recall which one). It sounds wonderful.

 

A portable system is simply one you carry around with you, not necessarily a system you listen to in public spaces or while on foot.

 

Almost the only place I listen to my system is while sitting at desks, but I have to move between offices often enough that there's no point to having a desktop system. So I have a little suitcase with all my portable kit; the whole assembly (three amps, two custom IEMs, one iPod, and a partridge in a pear tree) takes up less space than one of my desktop headphone amps, and I carry it around in my office bag. Setup and teardown takes less than a minute when nothing's been recharging.
