Thanks again. Very appreciative of Jude, taking so much time and effort into helping to organize this, and for Jan for offering such a deal. I know he's probably not seeing a dime off this. Don't fear though, you're aces in my book Jan, unfortunately I'll need to upgrade my source first before I'll start dropping more bills in your direction, but I'm always loyal to those who bend over backwards for my business
Alright, booty smooching out of the way, some first impressions:
I think my first impression was a bit tainted in over antici... pation, and the corda may have still been a little frozen from the delivery. But my first impression was mostly underwhelming. It just made things louder. Is this what everyone was gushing about and spending mucho bank on? Well, I switched it into high gear and still didn't feel it on my Hd600, running of and Ipod via aux output, playing lossless aac's.
I had some other things to do, so I left it to run at slightly louder than normal volume off the 9v, and in that time managed to solder the adapter part to my 24v elpac.
Those couple short hours really did wonders to beat some sense into this thing. Much better, in fact I have to go to work bright and early tomorrow, and am afraid I won't get a wink of sleep running this thing through it's paces.
My only complaint now, besides my source, is the way the cord sits so awkwardly when plugged in. In fact I'll have to break out Dremmel tomorrow and do a quick mod to make it fit with battery compartment closed.
