Thanks for the feedback!

 

Regarding the Whiplash, do you mean the side exit right-angle plug LOD or the bottom exit straight plug LOD?

 

I would like to use the side exit right-angle but I do not know if it will interfere with the Pico Power volume control. (I can always turn the amp upside down to have the LOD exit towards the headphone jack but I would rather not.)

 

For sure the bottom exit straight plug will work very well. 

 

(I also have a super sturdy iMod LOD that puts an unnecessary black gates DC blocking cap in the signal path - not sure that this really matters though.)

 

Lots of experimentation in a couple of weeks. I will report back.

Where is the whiplash mini to mini listed on headamp?

EDIT:didn't notice you guys were talking LODs, not regular interconnects

Thanks AlanYWM, dallan and muzic4life!smile.gif

 

It is good to join the Pico Power party.  beerchug.gif

 

I am a big fan of Headamp products, they are practical and not flashing.  Like my GS-1 which is 8 years old and still sounds amazing.

Tyll just posted up some measurements over at Innferfidelity - Looks to be an excellent performer!  The "old" Pico is no slouch either!

This looks like it's for the Pico but I cannot find it for the Pico Power.

Wow! The output impedance is 0.1929. I expected it to be higher (maybe 3 or 4). Seriously a wonderful surprise.

Dang I wish that I could hear mine but it sits 7,500 miles away.

Woo just read through the entire thread. Any comparisons to RSA or Alo amps, apart from the one line in the thread?

And comparisons to other portable Headamp amps.

 

Only just started paying attention to this product! The removable batteries may be preferable to having a sealed internal battery lose life and then having to pay for a replacement battery. Or worse, being turned down and having to buy an entirely new amp!... (it would of course still run off dc)

In certain condition..somehow i do prefer removable battery during my trip. Just grap spare battery with me and if battery down just unscrew and put the new one....but rechargeable battery imo is indeed more convenient in most cases.
