JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC appreciation + discussion thread - Page 130

I use 3M dual lock too, much cleaner look than amp straps.

post #1937 of 3201

 

I use a dual lock for my stack. C5D looks neat under DX50.

post #1938 of 3201

is that the normal dual lock or low profile?

post #1939 of 3201

It's between the normal and the low profile height. I need a little clearance coz I have a micro SD to full SD extender/adapter sandwiched in between so I can use an SD card instead of micro SD.

That is nice, I'll have to find some of that stuff. Where did you guys get that stuff? I'm finding it online but only in bulk quantities.

I've been dying to try this.  So it works o.k.?  Have you thought about building some sort of protective backing?

I've been using it for 2 months now and never had problems so far. I just covered the flat cable with a transparent tape so it sticks securely on the back of DX50. Then I put a 2nd layer of black tape to match the color of the DAP. I stack an amp using a low profile dual-lock fastener to make it neat. DX50 and C5D are identical in dimension. The adapter is totally hidden in between.

 

The flat cable is strong enough and won't break easily. I bent it a few times and no sign of damage.

Yes, that's what I'm using now since 64GB is not enough for me.

Hello,

 

Do you think the jacks below might not be ok to use with C5D? they don't fit in the line-in cutout circle.

Odd.  Aren't they just 3.5mm plugs (jacks are the holes into which plugs plug; jacks are fixed connectors, usually female; plugs are movable and generally male)?  Strange that they wouldn't be standard.  Maybe John can comment.

Ahh..nice surprise in the mail this morning:

 

Still using a crappy patch cable until my LOD comes in.  So far, this was definitely a worthy successor to my trusty arrow 12he.  WOOHOO!!
