Of course i'll cover all expenses it will take to get them from japan to the Netherlands.

Thank you,

Didn't realize you were in Netherlands.  Might actually be cheaper for me to use the Japanese Postal system.  I'm leaving Japan in February to return to the US.

A Dutchman stationed in Japan returning to the USA. You are full of mysteries :P

I'm sure i'll ask you within the next month.

I don't want to derail this thread about these chips any more now :X

I want to thank all of you, and especially @ClieOS, who is in ghostmode, for the tips and advise.


are there any changes i could make to the e12DIY to give my Grado GR10 IEMs a bit more bass, without sacrificing their perfect mids and highs?

Cheers and all the Best!:beerchug:

Note that not just any BrownDog adapter will work with HA-5002. You need to get the one specially made for HA-5002 or else you will likely burn-out something.

I can't seem to find anywhere that sells the HA-5002. I can find a SOIC version (HA9P5002) from Digikey, but no-one seems to have the metal can version.

Oh, ok...I'll make sure I check before I try anything.  Right now I am happy playing with the amps/buffers that came with the DIY. :biggrin:

Cheers and Thanks!:beerchug:

Let us know your favorite. I'm working my way through the stock and additional opamps with BUF634. So far my favorite opamp is AS797.

EDIT: Wow. Looked into it and standard mail using a padded envelope is >$46!! How much are the Muses when you buy locally? They're too expensive for me to buy from here so this could still be worth while depending on how much I save on the chips themselves buying with you guys.


That is crazy!  I can't fathom that!

post #1075 of 1671

I know. It's really mental. The moment you ship anything other than a flat envelope you pay a small fortune...

Received my Muses01 from Akizukidenshi today.  Here are pics.  Came in a pack marked JRC and to my eyes looks real.  In some photos I took you can see copper on the pins.  Pretty sure this is okay although I'm happy to be set straight.  

 

Belly photo shows a prominent YK even though my picture isn't so great.

Just received the E12DIY!

surprisingly it's a sub 200 number unit, silver model!

It's now charging, and i'll have to wait till friday to really properly enjoy it, as my GR10's are out to get custom earpieces on them.
post #1078 of 1671

My Muse01 and 02 just came in today as well.

 

Finally my last newbie question, on which side will the IC be placed on the holder and what is the correct orientation when placed on the E12 DIY as well?

 

Photos are also highly appreciated.  I can see the circle indentation on the chip, not sure how to use it as a guide.

 

Many thanks in advance and once again I really appreciate all the kind support and guidance I have received from this thread.

 

Cheers!

P.S. Oh just one additional side question, can anyone validate if the HS6 stacking kit work for the E12 DIY paired with an iPhone 5s?

See the above picture where the is a dent on one side of the socket (facing us)? That the same side where the 'dot' on the opamp should be.

 

HS6 stacking kit is designed specifically for FiiO X5 only.

post #1080 of 1671

Many thanks once again for the patience and kind support as always ClieOS!

 

Also assuming that the dent and dot should face on the front side of the E12 DIY too right? (just making sure i won't screw up on my precious muses)
