I guess a new cable warrants new shots of The Rig :D

 

 

 

 

DX50 -> Solid silver IC (recently repaired) w. angled Neutriks -> PB2 -> Plussound 28AWG SPC w. Hirose & clear angled Westone* pins, sanded Neutrik barrel used as a cinch -> Noble Audio K10. 

 

Or, you know, The Rig for short.

 

(No, not Westone, but gold-plated Westone compatible diy pins.)

My GS4 usually gets down to 50% by the end of the day on regular usage. With 2.5 hours of listening yesterday, it was at around 20% by the end of the day. So yeah, definitely eating it up. I want to get a 30pin OTG cable for my tablet instead, but still cannot find a decent one. Anybody know of a good 30pin to USB OTG cable?

Very nice cable job - Elegant yet eye-catching.

 

I, and many others, foresee a cabling business for you. ;)

Thanks, but noooooope, not going back to doing cables for others. Too time-consuming when you have a full-time job, two kids and a wife smily_headphones1.gif

Why not have TWO jobs, two kids, and a wife? :devil_face:

 

Just kidding. I've made cables before, and boy, do they take a hella lot of time and patience.

So does sanding down the IEM plugs to fit your CIEM :P.

Where'd the volume pot go? :eek:

post #9852 of 23613

It's a pure DAC and the T1 amp is used to control the volume :). The best DAC I've heard thus far with my gear.

Interesting. So this must be the infamous S-Mod! Surely a big sacrifice (and I better hope it is well worth it), since that AK-120 won't be used as a purely audio player no more.

It was a huge upgrade for me in terms of sound quality. Not comparable to when it was stock. Then again no DAP I've tried is....

I believe we could feed a small country with the  total cost of that rig combined. A sure sign of  portable audio addiction is in the air. And might I add I'm enjoying how that cable is set up this time round rather than last time. ;)
