Operating life of the Alps lever is spec'ed at 100,000 cycles. Alps potentiometers are rated at only 10,000 cycles.
All righty then, I'm in for the C5 already. :)
I've been looking for a clean-sounding portable amp recently since the O2 is too large to fit in most of the jackets I wear, hahaha. I was going to look in to the C241 more, but it looks like the C5 will be my next audio purchase.
As for colours, the all silver, or all black options sound good to me. It would be really neat to have an electric blue option though if resources allow for it.
