    Not even a single response from Onkyo service centers in Europe when asked where to obtain a replacement battery.

    Onkyo DP-S1 Rubato / Pioneer XDP-30R Private

    Works well here, I use an Oppo PM-3 without EQ because no setting improves sound, but the various pre-set EQ settings and extra bass makes a lot of difference for my Monolith M300 in-ears. Both planar magnetic phones btw. What are your other settings like gain, balanced/acg, is your line-out...

    The DP-S1 uses a 7 pin connector for the battery I guess, from the board shown down this page, http://www.tellementnomade.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=135&t=16736 The only battery I saw on Alibaba needs construction work...

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    There's only 3.5mm sockets on the PM-3's, they can handle 3.5mm 3 contacts and 3.5mm 4 contacts on that same socket. The other end of the cable, if balanced and thus with 2.5mm and 4 contacts, is standard for balanced-output devices. When using a 3.5mm 3 contacts to 3.5mm 4 contacts cable, the 4...

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    The 2.5mm connector is for balanced outputs. When buying a balanced 3.5mm to 2.5mm cable, you'll find both the 3.5mm and 2.5mm connector have 4 contacts, where 3.5mm to 3.5mm cables have 3 contacts on both connectors.

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    I once emailed Oppo UK for PM-3 replacement pads, they sold me 2 pads when I said I could replace them myself. They were not on their product page then. Pretty expensive too. Paid more for the synthetics + postage than what the above leather ones cost.

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    Just got them, they are too small, the horse shoe fit (12.3mm) that is. It just flips off the pods right away, so don't buy these.

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    The ear locks are fine, but when laying on my back, the support for the pods is minimal. The above hooks won't be shipped before end February however.

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    One of the buyers of these hooks "feedbacks" they fit the Isine 20 perfectly, so just ordered some and will let you know. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4Pcs-Black-White-12-3mm-360-Rotary-Earhook-For-Huawei-Honor-am07-Bluetooth-Headset-Ear-Hooks/32776114588.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.ZnHWV7
