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?
Does anyone know from experience if this mini amp Fiio band fits an ipod classic+PA2V2 well?
Here's the housing unit empty. Notice that the Fiio battery indicator is easily visible with or with out an iPod inside the case

Hope you enjoyed it folks and fellow head-fiers
Cool set! Cool pics!
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.
this is my portable setup:
Setup is :
BTG_AUDIO Sunrise Upgrade Cable
ALO Audio RX MK2
Cypher Labs Algorhythm SOLO
ALO Audio SXC CLAS SOLO Cable Combo
Ipod touch 32gb 3g
