Just ordered the HA-5002 chips.

I hope the sale goes through, as RS-online officially only serves companies...

If i order the brown dog adaptors without pins, i could solder my own pins underneath it, making it a better fit, right?

I got mine from RS so you should be fine as I don't order as a company as such.

The netherlands' version of the website only allows you to order with a 'chamber of commerce' (kamer van koophandel) number.

I filled in 0 and can only hope.

It's really ******* that you can't order these as consumer here. As with most stuff. Makes me properly mad.


Also trying to order the silmic II caps, but i have no idea which ones i should get. This isn't my area of expertise.
There's a lot of different voltage levels and micro faraday(?) levels.

@ClieOS mentioned the 22microF ones, at 6.3 volt, but those aren't on the list?

How did you do this, my order was just bounced by them.

I'm quite pissed about this right now.

That sucks. There must be different rules in different countries. Over here I have the option to include an ABN (Australian Business Number), but I don't have to.

 

I'd offer to buy it here and ship it to you, but it would probably be cheaper to start a company!! ;) Jokes aside, if there's any way I can help feel free to PM me

Thank you for the offer but i try to ship as little as possible from outside europe. I'll try england next, and if that doesn't work, i'll ask some companies i know if they're willing to order it for me.

There's always a way wink.gif

Wondering if someone in the US can help a brother out and set me up with a functional HA-5002 + Brown Dog and/or OPA627 + Fiio adaptor combo. I'd be willing to pay for parts, time, and shipping, of course. I'd also supply my Fiio side by side adaptor for the OPA627.

Thanks!
Nikolaus

I am from Singapore and wonder if anyone could set me up with a HA5002 + Browndog too

I should receive my HA5002 and brown dog today. I have a question regarding the positioning to solder the buffer and the position to install it into the amp. Can someone, who has done this of course, take close up picture of their installation and soldering or explain what direction everything goes. Thanks again head-fiers!

My order HA-5002 is arrived last week and since today morning the BrownDog adapters are also there. I soldered the chips onto the bottom side of the adapters and shortened the pins. Soldering so small chips is very very tricky and I had to use magnifier glasses and the smallest soldering iron I ever used before. But it was successful.

 

And now I compare the 2 MUSES amps again and I can say, there is an great difference between MUSES01 and MUSES02.

 

Because I love a 3D-sound with maximal room impression, I love the breath of the music, the clear but not sharp playback of the highs and I love strong and black basses, now I prefer the MUSES02 in this combination.


fiioX5 + E12DIY + AKG K3003i
 

For E12DIY - Highly recommended:
HA-5002 + MUSES02 + Silmic II capacitors (22uF 25V)
 

 

Edit: I found a audible highlight for fans of operas:
Mozart: Don Giovanni [harmonia mundi]

In regards to the Silmic did you get the 60mA or 80mA ripple current?

I might be able to, but not sure the cost of shipping and need to get mine sorted first to ensure no issues with soldering etc.
