“This is a great sounding portable DAC+Amp. Happy I still have one, since it's no longer produced. Very black background given the price. Good clean sound despite only USB power. Have larger more powerful amps and they have more noise in the background. Small and easily portable. Solid, well built. A bit of hissing when turning volume nob, which is not super...” --titaniumgrade5
“ Je viens de recevoir mon D12 Ibasso, je trouve le son superbe en DAC, en ampli c'est beaucoup moins impressionnant avec mon Cowon D2 qui lui est déjà parfait, d'où ma décision de changer les opamps gris et rouge du Donc j'ai commandé le kit D10/D12 vendu chez Ibasso et 2 AD8397 vendus chez Heaphonia. J'ai mis AD 8656 et AD4841 à la place des gris et AD8397 à la place des 2 rouge, le son est...” --o2mer
“ I've owned two of these now and it's time to write a review. One I bought new last year (and sold on here) and one I bought used on these forums. To put it simply, this is the best portable headphone amp I have ever owned or heard. I used this with a pair of Hd800s, balanced D7000s and LCD-2s. It easily powered all of these with authority. There are multiple gain...” --jbarr1989
“ this is only the 2nd amp I have. I like it for my IE8... what more can I say? ” --Hawaiiancerveza
“ SigComing from the old iBasso D2, there is really not much improvement here. The iBasso dac amps are great products. I am slightly disappointed with the D4 mamba because I found that at higher volumes, there is not enough voltage between the DAC and another part, which causes sound wave clipping. This is a serious drawback and almost requires modding to fix. If you don't plan on cranking the...” --Double Edge
“ I would like to thank iBasso for the opportunity to review their new USB and portable D-Zero amp/DAC. iBasso has been making quality amps and DACs for audio enthusiasts for years and I consider it an honor for them to allow me to review their product. Pros: Looks, build quality, sound quality, battery life. Cons: No volume...” --keanex
“ Preface Before I begin, I'd like to preface this article by stating my intent. This article is not meant to be a detailed review of the iBasso D6, nor do I attempt to make direct comparisons against similarly priced amps, as this is the first portable device with which I've had any experience. The goal of this article is to share a few observations regarding my iBasso D6...” --jazzfan
“ I have had this amp for just a couple of days, but it has made a very good impression on me. I bought this second-hand to be used alongside with a computer and maybe as a travelling amp (haven't tried it yet). The connectivity of this amp is superb - you get DAC functionality via USB/toslink/coax and portable amping from 3.5mm jacks. AFAIK, USB DAC is 16/48 and optical/coax is...” --GreenLeader
The first one is the BTL grounding, also known as balanced grouding. Benefited from this technology, the voltage swing is increased from 4.2V to 8.4V max; and the output power is increased to 175mW max. Moreover, the T5 has opamp+buffer on each channel, the current output is up to 500mA per channel. The Second one is the digital volume control. The advantage of the digital volume control is it...
