Default The Shadow

Ray Sammuels Audio also announced a slim amp within days of HeadAmp’s slim pico announcement. As neither has been released, we don’t have any detailed info, but it too was shown at CanJam 09, you can read Ray’s announcement here. The picture below I found on google images, thanks for the pic Scorche:

The Pico Slim might very likely stomp all over the Shadow with its 256-step digital poti (not rocker), programmable IC, and newly announced ~60h battery life.

The Shadow PCB looks quite a bit shorter than the Pico Slim (looks almost only half as long as the Pico), but you never know without the case...

Here's a better perspective:

Here's some final pics... seems the Shadow is at least twice as fat as the Pico Slim: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/5951175-post114.html

I remember looking at all of Scorche's pictures after the show, but after seeing so many I didn't notice it was his, thanks for giving him credit (I'll edit the 1st post).

I agree the Shadow looks shorter, but for my money, I prefer to own the Pico Slim for it's feature set and build quality, even if it's a little larger.

Default The Shadow - RSA Portable Amp

Seems RSA is taking pre-orders for the shadow now, the cost is $395.00 with an introductory price of $350 for the first 200 orders.
