What I meant was that since 7th Gen iPod Nano's have small space size in nature, once you use up all the space on one 7th Gen Nano, you can swap out a 7th Gen Nano that doesn't have music you want with one that does. It's pretty easy to fill up a 16GB Nano with AAC 256bit files, so in most cases, you'd need an additional Nano, or maybe you're Nano dies and needs to be repaired or replaced, which ever the case, my set up compliments those situations :-) But like I said above the corresponding picture, it's not advisable if you don't want the set up to be permanent. My set up is clutter free of slip mats and thick rubber bands, but comes at the cost of restricting the set up to 7th Gen iPod Nano's. I personally love it so far. It's just so convenient and portable.
 

This is the first time I've seen anyone do this, so naturally, I'm expecting this method to meet much criticism and speculation. But I stand by it, so I'm willing to answer those criticisms :-)


 

Haha, I hope you knew I was just playing around! tongue.gif

 

But anyways, many people, including myself, have had a similar alternative to a band-free rig, with the use of removable Dual Lock. That stuff holds strong, but also can be removed easily. You might want to have a look at that:) It's also not permanent, hence less problems.

Whilst my AK100 is away for repair I have been listening to this rig:

Heir Audio Rendition 1 Amp - iModded iPod - Tzar 350 with Magnus 1 Cable

I'm loving the Rendition1 amp and it pairs with the Tzar exceptionally well.....amazing detail, clarity and soundstage with no background noise whatsoever :-)

This rig is probably going to be flamed for what it is...

The best SQ from my 1+2 with UBER Cable :

Amp : Wagnus Bialber O Epsilon S top of the line
Iem : Tralucent Audio 1+2 with UBER cable
Cable : Venture Craft Lod to USB
Wagnus Sputnik mini to mini
SQ : the best set up for my 1+2 to date
The cleanest and more detail than from other amp that I owned.
This is really heavenly SQ .
The best synergy with my set up above

A little refinement from my original submission.  

 

iPod Touch's case is velcro-ed to the E17 amp. Long cable from the iPod Touch to the HRT iStreamer (oops...I think I connected it to the battery in this photo) and another long RCA-to-male-3.5mm to the E17 amp.

 

The purpose of the long cables are that I can place the HRT iStreamer and battery;

1.  in a briefcase on the floor of a commuter train, and I have the Touch and amp in my hand.

2. beneath my desk at work and have the touch and amp on my desk; the busybodies at work sneer at all the gadgetry in the office.

 

 

Looking at all those wires has made me consider both, the;

1 Fiio X3 - is this TGTBT?  hi res files, external microSD card support, an E17 amp built-in.

2. Venturecraft's DD Socket - the idea of a powered DAC that plays hi res files is attractive....uh, though the iDevices don't yet support them...and, I confess, I prefer the convenience of carrying a phone that with all my music, when I don;t carry an iPod Touch.

Am I the only goof, that's admiring the plastic tote of interconnects more then the rig itself?

post #4723 of 23636

I too love interconnects!

Interesting to hear you say that. From what I have read the 5 got the thumbs up for SQ and iirc the 5 has the same DAC chip as the 4S.

I am new to portable rigs and I am looking for a thin black band to hold an ipod classic to a PA2V2. What is a good brand/who sells these?

 

Thanks
