I've had the pleasure of spending some time with the ZMF V.1 and I'm really digging the comfort of the pilot pad. Has anyone tried ditching the leather comfort strap and using a pilot pad with the Alpha Dog?

actually its velcro off/on. I like the dog strap though its not as soft but less hot on my bald head. pros and cons to each

My brother loaned me his Hifiman HM-901 + Minibox amp card to try with the AD's... another sleepless night.  

 

Right off the bat just with some MP3's the sound is just so sweet.  With hi-res files, very nice synergy with the AD's.  High gain, max volume is not super loud but no distortion.  I can live with this sound but the 901 is kind of slow.  Like IBM 256k compared to today's i5 slow.  It's also big and heavy.  Small brick heavy but it is the same as strapping a DAP to a portable amp.

 

Aside from the physical properties of the 901, it is a great sounding match with the AD's.  For someone that does a lot of commuting and can afford to lug around the AD and a good meaty player then I would highly recommend trying out the 901+Minibox amp card.

Our new painter is kicking ass and our production is really accelerating.  As of tomorrow we will have shipped through March 25.  

 

By Tuesday of next week we will have shipped all upgrades in house, and I expect we'll be into April orders and back at our quoted backlog of 3-4 weeks.  Our goal is to get to close to having stock on the Alpha Dogs within the next few weeks.  Thanks to everyone for your patience while we dug out of the Matte Black delays.  

 

All Alphas in house for upgrade will ship by Tuesday, at which point we will resume sending out upgrade notices.

I received notification my Lyr is available for pickup this evening at the FedEx site. Now my gear upgrade will be complete. The ADs already sound fantastic out of my receiver headphone out but the Lyr is taking it to a whole new level.

Very excited for a late night music session. I'll post impressions for those interested. From what people have said the pairing is quite good between the AD and the Lyr.

This bodes poorly for many, many wallets.

Good to know you're making these faster. Ordered mine on April 20th and very excited, still some time to go though!

Great service you do for the community MrSpeakers! Hopefully I'll place an order for some of these early next month.

How much of a delay for the upgrade option? Been a while since I put my name for that.

Look forward to meeting you at AXPINA!

We totally halted that as we had too many on hand and were taking too long.  We will send more notices out next week.  I'm not trying to estimate the queue, that's essentially impossible right now...

Wow fantastic news!! I'm so excited to hear this I may be getting my black Alpha Dogs before finals week :)

 

My finals start May 12th so I am hoping I will have them before to make my studies a little bit easier with noisy roommates : ]

No prob. I am a patient man. But didn't have the energy to search this thread for an answer.
