The ER4P-24 is a short accessory cable from Etymotic that adds 75 ohms of resistance. This essentially transforms an ER4P into an ER4S (resistance being the significant different between the two versions).

The Xin SuperMacro amps have an optional switch that adds 75 ohms, serving the same purpose as the accessory cable.

3. For this you should read the review Vorlon1 and I did a couple of moths ago at: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showthread.php?t=203445

I prefer the Supermicro IV but any of the amps listed are very good. Good luck.




Xin definitely must have changed the default gain on the SuperMicro then; with my 1st generation, pre-tweak SuperMicro IV, you can blow out an eardrum with a 1/8" turn of the volume pot using IEM's. (I use an attenuator for safety when using IEM's). That's good news.

I still haven't sent mine in for repairs to the battery contacts/tweaks. I just can't seem to get the courage to ship it off, even though I have other portable amps to use while waiting for it to return. There is nothing in my inventory that can compare to the sound of the SuperMicro IV.

Date of order: 30th October 2006

Shipping notice received on the 16th January 2007!

I really didn't mind the wait for my SMIVLE, but I'm sure these next few days will be passing excruciatingly slow.

I ordered mine on February 20th and received a notice of receipt of order. I am expecting it to arrive December 31st.........................2011, and won't I be surprised when it arrives early.....if it does?????!!

At least I have a vintage SuperMini, SuperDual (remember that?? It still sounds really good) and a SuperMacro IV to tide me over.
