Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

Thanks guys for the links. After seeing what you bought Lou. I bought the very same thing. All I ask is that you don't buy an airplane or jump off of a bridge. I tend to follow your wise decisions ). My wife and myself have met Lou and his wife at a DJ conference.

If you ever want to meet nice, fun and knowledgeable people then there you go. I jest with him but our mind set is very similar. We give 150 percent to our clients. I like that he did not buy the least expensive cable he could find.

Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

I use one very similar to the one ST posted. I have had good luck using this PCDI box.

I like that it has a ground lift & stereo / mono selector. Also handy is a -20db pad that can be turned on/off.

Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

Disappointing,if you are like me and looking for a way to run a stereo signal from a smart phone or iPod into a Model II.

With my Samsung Galaxy 4, there is not enough volume to energize a dance floor.

With my old iPod, there is barely enough volume to fill in until I could get something better going.

With my Dell Inspiron running Ots, there is more than enough volume to keep a dance floor energized but that is not what I am seeking.
I really wanted something to cover the time between a mixer or PC breakdown and getting a new laptop up and running. This is not adequate.

I did not use it with an iPad but, for me, the iPad is too large.

The bottom line...
The Model II it is lighter and sounds better with a B2 but it does not have the versatility of the discontinued Model I. The Model I was the Swiss Army Knife of high quality, powered speakers.

Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

Lou,

The Model 1 did have 4 inputs with the R1 remote and was very handy. The Model 2 has only the one input. I hear you about what you mean about the Model 1. If rumors are true, there may be a new member to the L1 family around February / March. How cool would it be to have a M2 with more inputs again with a remote to dial it in the way you like?

Thanks for the info.I was seeking something simpler. The unit you mention requires AC power. I have several small mixers I can use but that defeats the purpose.

Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

Hi Lou

I think we are now suffering the manufacturers cost cutting. Older MP3 players and phones had a much higher level of output which could get you through a glitch. Nowadays the output level is noticeably lower and therefore needs more boosting.

In view of you requirements perhaps you might approach from a different avenue and use a portable(battery) headphone amplifier. Not perfect but perhaps another way round the problem.

Looked on ebay and came up with these http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/port...-headphone-amplifier.


Hope this helps

Re: iPod, or Droid into Model II

Lou,

No, it doesn't use any power (AC or battery) Maybe I can take some better pictures of all sides and PM them to you.
