If I'm in the States, I would just give it to them if I want it done. 

 

I'm not saying that RWA is bad. They get my applause for discovering this mod. But $250 just seems like bit much. If it was something like $150, I would happy do it. $250 seems to be pushing the limits a bit.

"Value" is relative. Skill and knowledge in demand can charge what the market will bear. How much does an emergency plumber cost to fix a burst pipe.

Wee. Portable comparison rig?


The differences between the O2 and C5 are pretty subtle, but the O2 sounds a little more spacious and has a deeper-hitting bass, both with the V-MODA and the Mad Dog.

*with approximate volume-matching

I find that with closed cans the portable JDSLabs sound is a little clostrophobic.  I do prefer a wider soundstage.

If the mod takes a couple of hrs and given that RWA assume the risk of bricking the unit, $250 is not unreasonable. It's not like making a LOD cable charging your $250. The risk from opening/modding the dap is relatively high. Also good modding skills deserve a premium.

I guess that the and warranty is very good from RWA. But there are other modders in other countries that does the mod for less and does warranty as well.

 

But I do agree that it is a better deal than making a LOD cable for $250.
