post #9526 of 13550

 

Got my InEar StageDiver SD-2 today. I really like them, though the E12 is not that great of an amp when it comes to IEM:s. So now I'm just looking for an amp that matches well with the SD-2:s.

At first, I thought it was a mirror image seeing the E12 controls that way, but the writing on the box is the correct way. Then, it hit me that the E12 is upside down. biggrin.gif Which interconnects are those?

I got that interconnect of this guy on Ebay. It's built with Pailiccs plugs and Nordost flat speaker cable, 7N silver plated copper. It's built like a tank and it's "only" $27.99.

The Pailiccs is actually my favorite plug among all the plugs I have tried (Viablue, Neutrik, Switchcraft, Valab Rhodium). I like it even more with a heavy-duty heat shrink. It gives me that "pro" look. :)

 

I had to turn up my Hakko to the max 899F to shrink it.

From the line out I find the ipod 5.5 to be superior to the iPhone 4S

Agreed!
I believe the 5.5g is favoured a lot due to its Wolfson DAC. I can't remember which one now mind.
Apart from the iPad4 Retina and 3Gs, I prefer the sound of my 5.5g over my Latest gen classic, my iPhone5, 4s or 4.
Saying that, when paired with the SOLO, The 4s is a great transport/source, better than the classic. And don't forget the 5.5g won't handshake with the CLAS.

With a clean bypass mod and ass-kicking caps, an ipod5g will blow those stocks out of water. Not mentioning you can throw in a mighty 256GB CF card and rockboxed. :)

 

With the DMod's, I can't even turn to the hi-gain on my amp. It's just too much blasting my ears.

 

One day I might get my hands on a SOLO to play around with my ipod 7g.

I'm really shocked at how much different my stock ipod 5.5 sounds than my diymod 5.5

The diymod is soooo much crisper and has a tendency to love sum treble, whereas my stock ipod 5.5 sounds very smooth and chill

Try a diymod with NO caps at all. See my post here. Just make sure your amp CAN handle the 2V dc offsets. I am not liable for any potential damage to your amp. :)

Im using my 5.5G iMod with no caps.  Though since it was sent to RWA for the iMod, Its not direct to the pins.  I believe my Fiio E17 amp already has built in caps.  So I'm waiting to get a silver LOD. :D  I'd love a chance to A-B the iPod a bit quicker.  As it stands I really can't tell too much differance in SQ from the Headphone out to the LOD with lossless files. :/  But either way, it still sounds great to me, especially in my DT880s. :D
