    What kind of battery life have you folks been getting on this monster.  Love my P3+ but could use more power for my 702s.  Feels like the P4 is the right next amp for me (maybe even good enough to sell the RSA) but I am somewhat put off by the fixed battery.
     
    Thanks.

    I never use it in a portable situation for very long at all...usually sits on top of my desk, nightstand or end table plugged in

    Here is a little headphone and amp porn for ya!
     
    LCD-2 (rev1)
     
    I have the D6 in DAC mode to the P4 with a custom silver mini to mini, the P4 definitely "drives" these phones!
     
    *dont normally listen to this type of music through phones but David Guetta station on PANDORA...excellent experience!

    Sweet.
     
    I was wondering how the P4 would do with tougher phones like these and the 702s!  Sounds like I'll be good to go if the battery life checks out.

    In my experience, the Stepdance works much much better with LCD2 than P4.
     
    P4 + LCD2 = anemic performance

    I have no idea what op amps you are using but that sure isn't my experience.

    Stock opamp configuration.
     
    P4 with LCD2 sounds better than many other amps out there but totally pale in comparison to Stepdance when driving the LCD2.

    Actually, its more like in "your opinion" my friend...P4 is a fantastic little amp.

    Well just my 2 cents but.....
     
    I owned the 2Stepdance, I researched it a lot and had several conversations with Jan himself regarding the SQ of the 2Stepdance compared to the original (OPA121 compared to OPA1611) and he assured me that no comprimises were made with the SQ of the 2Stepdance. I say this because I never compared the original Stepdance with the P4. I did however compare the 2Stepdance with the P4 and sold it fairly soon after as the P4 was superior in many ways and as a bonus cost less also. The P4 is an amazing amp. I have (and have had) quite a few portable and home/desktops and I can tell you the P4 punches way, way above it's modest price tag. With the right chipset (yes this can add to the overall cost) it can compete with amps costing considerably more,
     
    I am running OPA627AM's in LR + HA5002 Buffers and  ISL55002 in G/VG at the moment and I am astonished by the SQ and versatility to cope with IEM's and full sized cans. The other thing to consider is the fact that you can tune it to suit your tastes and phones by swapping out the opamps and/or buffers. I doubt I will ever part with my P4.

    You will not be disappointed with the P4 and if you are, you can roll the OPAMPS to custom the sound to your liking, its a WIN WIN
