Wow the specs on this fella are incredible, not bad at all for a Sabre DAC implementation.

Just remember that if the glue on the tape is not strong, the hook part will pill itself off the device, so it is a balance between heavy glue and removability. The dual lock from 3M seems to be softer and not as sticky as the Velcro so in theory you should be able to rip it off when not needed anymore but you might also run the risk of having the dap or the amp falling off if you carry it manually and you are holding on one device only.

Nope. Not at all, actually. You haven't used Dualloc I see. It's not like Velcro at all... 

 

This is Velcro:

 

This is DualLock:

Both sides look like that. It doesn't grab onto anything and everything like Velcro does, but two pieces of DualLoc will "click" together and actually lock in place VERY securely. Here's the rather heavy R1 amp DualLoc'ed to my DX100:

Trust me, it's not like Velcro at all, and unlike cheap hook & loop Velcro imitations, it doesn't "peel off" either. Go grab some off ebay and try it out yourselves, you'll love it.

 

Edit: I peeled it off my DX100 after having it on for about a year: Zero residue left. 

Edit 2: Grab the "low profile" version and it'll only add about 2mm to the hight of your stack once clicked together.

It's pretty cheap off ebay, so you might as well give it a shot :beerchug:

I can live with that - at least it's a reasonably cheap thing  I talked you into!

I just purchased couple of feet of dual lock fastener and I feel great biggrin.gif

Here, I got it out of my chest.

Thanks Soren for the resourceful tip, never again will I use rubber bands! Well maybe to just use it as a friendly weapon once in a while but not the thick one, pretty useless now.

lol, that's exactly what I was thinking biggrin.gif

I checked the net and a good roll of low profile 10 feet is roughly around 25$ so not too cheap but again not bad. You can dual lock your bumps to a chair no problem with that wink.gif

10 feet of dual lock should be plenty... I'm using a total of about 4 inches for my rig :D

Agreed but I played the cheap fella and only got couple of feet for close to 10$, I was thinking I don't have that many gadgets to dual lock to. I might regret my decision later. frown.gif
