post #4726 of 13431

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

Does anyone know from experience if this mini amp Fiio band fits an ipod classic+PA2V2 well?

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



How would you compare the Imod to a real audiophile dap? I'm sending my 5.5 to audio minor and he's putting internal polyester film caps in it

As you can see, there are no rubber bands used here to keep the amplifier and iPod coupled together.

 

Notice that there's a clean opening for the "Out" port for headphones

 

How was this done? Simply apply adhesive double-sided foam (not recommended if you don't want this setup to be permanent)

 

Notice the back panel of the Fiio E11 is free for swapping faulty/dead batteries

 

Restricted to one iPod Nano? Think again, this protective iPod Nano case serves as a housing unit that allows easy swapping in & out of multiple iPod Nano's

 

Here's the housing unit empty. Notice that the Fiio battery indicator is easily visible with or with out an iPod inside the case
 

 

Here's a different view of the setup, notice that the clamp allows breathable space between the Fiio E11 and the iPod Nano

 

Here's a pic of my Portable Rig powering my Audio Technica ATH-A900X

Hope you enjoyed it folks and fellow head-fiers

 

Cool set! Cool pics!

Have you tried the TG!334 directly out of the AK100? How do they sound?

Im very happy with the iMod that I have which includes a CF card mod. It's also slightly different to the other mods out there becuase mine goes directly to the LOD pins of the iPod. The CF card adapter also provides more roon inside the iPod for the internal caps, so provides flexibility with LOD's.

 

As for sound...I am very impressed with the DIY iMod I have and the sound is definately an improvement over the stock iPod. However having said that I do not think its comparable to say the AK100 I have. The AK100 slightly pips the iMod soundwise.

 

Of course other benefits of the smaller DAP are that you dont have to use an amplifier with it (although I do sometimes, dependant on what headphones / IEM's I'm using), also the AK100 can play up to 24/192kHz files which the iMod can't.

 

Personally if you were just playing standard 16/44.1kHz files of lower bit rate stuff I would say stick with the modded iPod....as the price difference just doesn't warrant it in my humble opinion.

The bass dissapear.
No such problems with my dynamic driver IEMs, i.e. Shure 215 Ltd & JVC HXT-90

I have a 64gb cf card in mine too

But I think audiominor runs a wire from the dac then to the caps and finally out to the pins. Is there a better way to do that? Also the caps will be internal

Yeah basically the caps sit in line between the DAC and LOD pins.
