Sony connector

I am also making a Sony to RCA cable.

I should have them up on the website next week.

Hey Ken,

Will there be a new section created for the Sony LOD, or will it be under a sub category such as Cables, or possibly IPOD Cables???

Just curious because I want to be able to quickly check if they have been added to the site. I really want to order one of these as soon as possible.


Thanks,

Shawn

Dear Ken,
What is the best SQ of walkman used with this cable. I plan to use it with FLAC converted from ALAC. Can I use the balanced protector from Ray Samuels with it and what would be the best headphone that will be good for this. I listen to classical and symphonic metal 80% 20% jazz and audiophile recording?
thanks,
Kiertijai

Hey Shawn,

There will be a new icon for the Sony Walkman, I plan on releasing a Walkman to RCA cable as well but for now there is the new "Sony Walkman" icon and the new cable HERE

Thanks

Ken

I am not a Walkman aficionado, perhaps someone else is better to answer I only have a S series.

Hmm I am not so sure the Walkman supports FLAC?

if the RS amp has a mini input, which I think it does then yes

Sorry not to be much help, this is a personal preference. The headphones I like you might not. My personal favorites are my ALO

Modded Audio Technica W5000s
Modded Ultrasone Edition 9s
Sennheiser HD800s
JH audio JH13s with the ALO JHaudio cable
Grado RS1s

Thank you,

Ken

Hey Ken,

You're welcome for the pictures. It was the least I could do...especially after the quick shipping.

Thought I would do a little advertising for ya.....

For those who have it, how does it compare to amping the hp out of the walkman? I just want to know if there is there an appreciable difference before I jump on this.
