lol burn in plays a big part as well. Initially I wasn't that impressed either. But after a couple hundred hours of use it really opened up and showed it full potential :).

The last few days, I just let the T1 burn in continuously, so that might be a big factor also, even though I had put a fair amount of hours on it already. Thanks again for recommending this amp when you sold me the DX100. Now we will see how it matches up with the Tera, and how it compares to the iCAN.

Just received mine...will give some impressions after burn in.

The T1 hasn't burned in yet (only 15 hours), and yet, the DX100 > T1 > Miracles rig works superbly for me. The T1 adds just the hint of coloration to fully enjoy the pairing. A little bit more bass, a little more warmth, a bit more fullness in the sound...oh my god audio heaven right now with Erykah Badu

I'm glad you like it. It got noticeably better for me after burn in. Initially it was a tad bassy :P. But opened up beautifully. Really brings balance to the sound staging.

I have a DACport LX feeding a Tralucent T1 driving some SpiralEar SE-5's. Its not all burned in yet but it already sounds fantastic. 

 

The DACport LX runs very hot. And its just the DAC. A hot DAC and a cool amp. Do people carry around RV batteries to power the DACport? Or use it as a hand-warmer? It does sound great but is sure sucks down power and converts it to heat.

 

Also I can't get my Tralucent to play while charging. Some say yes, some say no. Would be handy to get more burn-in. Does the light go out or change color when its fully charged? Is it a Lithium-Ion battery?

 

Last, I agree this Tralucent can go way loud. Even with HD-650's. I can't imagine turning the dial all the way up. Wonder if it would damage the CIEMs. 

 

Anyway not complaining, it does sound wonderful, and that's the main thing. 

 

EDIT: Thanks guys. Got it charging the Lithium-Polymer battery off a 5V 1A (1000mA) USB port power supply, while playing. Ordered a heatsink for the DACport. Breaking it all in with 250 hours of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

I got a heatsink for my DACport LX and it works really good. Keeps it running much cooler than before. Even a PC heatsink with a big enough surface area can do the trick.

 

I was able to get the T1 to continue to play charging it via a wall wart. Just make sure it's the right voltage or it can damage the battery. Yes it is lithium ion. The red light should go off once it is done charging.

Batteies are Li-Po

What do you mean by "right voltage or it can damage the battery."   I have a Rosewill 2amp 4 port charger that will output 5V 2amp max when charging one component.

I haven't had any battery related problems with it except my Motorola cell phone and the T1, but I believed both problems were from a bad battery and not the charger.

At least I hope it wasn't from the charger, LOL!

Well if the T1 was meant to be charged via USB on the PC I'm sure you are not suppose to go over 500 mAH on a wall wart.
 

post #312 of 543

So what does that mean in English???   Is my charger too powerful?   Isn't there a circuit in the T1 to prevent overcharging?

mAh (milli-Amp hours) is just the total capacity of the battery. The charger will be rated as to how many Amps it can deliver, not mAh. Or to put it another way, power supplies can deliver as many mAh as you want... given enough hours. But they never say mAh on them, they say volts, polarity, and amps capacity.

 

How many Amps it delivers, at the voltage differential it presents (in this case 5V) it is in fact okay for the wall wart to be capable of more than the required amps. The charging battery will just sip what it can at 5V and its required amperage. 

 

See for example http://ask-leo.com/can_i_use_a_charger_that_provides_the_same_voltage_but_a_different_amperage.html
