I ended up sending mine back and am currently eagerly awaiting the replacement unit (should get here tomorrow). It seems that there must be at least one batch out there with dodgy batteries (discharges itself completely over 24-36 hours, even if unused and disconnected - regardless of op-amp configuration). The old unit gave about 7 hours' battery life driving GR07s or HF5s - this was also obviously not OK.
 
Incidentally, I've found that it works extremely well driving FA-003s - there seems to be a real synergy here.....
 
Eww.  Let us know how the new one pans out.

This was posted quite a while ago, but I just saw it. What I want to know is where did you get those rubber(?) straps? It seems like a much better solution to carrying an amp around with your DAP than sticking velcro on the bottom. If anyone knows what these straps are, please let me know! Thanks.

Oooh - loving the hot pink wristbands, Ron !  :wink:
 
Fashionistas aside, I would note the price on these. Stamp 'ALO Audio' on them and I guarantee that they would cost significantly more. Oh, wait ..

Only that we are slaves to marketing and the need to express our rabid consumerism by paying for the privilege of advertising someone else's brand. Could be worse - I dont spend a single cent on fashion, but those who do really know what it means to pay for a visible label.

Yeah, know what you are saying. I prefer the plain black ones over the printed ones anyway.

Well my little volume knob decided to go missing, can't have been screwed on very tight.
 
Been having a nightmare of a time sourcing a replacement, anyway one of many arrived today and it's ideal [sort of]
 
It's a mentor 505.613
 
Perfect size, but the set screw won't go far enough to bite down, luckily it will bite onto the opposite side, and bites down hard.
 
Finding a 6mm d shape knob is not a problem, finding one with a set screw mission impossible!!
 
But it ended well, and is on there firm, i have a couple others coming, so we'll see what they're like.
 
Also it seems farnell sell under a different name on ebay, there's a minimum £20 spend on the uk site, but when i ordered the knob on ebay it came direct from farnell reciept and all.

Cheers for the link, I like the look of that one. If you have more than one I would swap you for an original ibasso know. Recon I must have one or more lay around....

Sadly i don't, but hold on to that thought i have two others coming, and i might want an original one anyway.
 
You need it to sit close to the body when tightening, as you need the dial to clamp down on the whole thing.
 
Like i said the bolt isn't long enough to clamp on the flat portion, but do it the opposite side and it works great.
 
Nice size as well, real small and you can see all the markings on the amp fine, looks like it's original actually.
 
Took me forever to find one that worked mind.
 
Only gripe is the set screw is visible, so i'll put a dab of black enamel on it at some point.

Well I checked and have 2 x flat (dull) alloy and 1 x shiny one (probably off my old P3+) so if you want one just let me know. Got a pic of your with the new black one? Might just snatch one anyway.
