hmm, i was under impression unless you contacted xin, you would get the default, which IIRC was 'B'

I got my reference one year ago so at that time I don’t have version to choose.
my reference's capacitance is 11000uf

Heh if I'd order an amp and had to wait for it 2 years, I'd probably convince myself it should sound better then sex by the time it arives

I was thinking about sending in my Reference (I guess I have an "A" model) for an upgrade. Two questions:

1. In this thread were there elaborated differences between the B, C, and D models after the boards were a little more burned in (500+ hours)? I'm not sure which to go with. Seems like C unless I want either more battery life or more power.

2. If I do send in the amp for an upgrade, are the caps replaced? Will I have to burn in a new set?

Thanks for any informed opinion(s)

I should think the larger question would be: how long am I going to be without an amp? And how many emails will I send with no responses whatsoever while waiting for said amp?? Sure you want to do this???

No, actually, I'm not sure. I have a backup amp but it doesn't sound nearly as good and I don't know if the time uncertainty in getting the Ref back is worth it. In an earlier post someone mentioned that upgrades get done pretty quickly, but of course "quickly" is relative.

you guys have to wait that long

I thought about getting Xin Supermacro IV too

However, I gave up because of this thread

uugh.. this is really disheartening! I keep hoping the wait would get shorter, not longer. I reeeeeeaaaalllly want a Supermicro IV for my gym rig!!

In January he replied to an email that my Super Micro IV would ship in about one month - I changed the order to a Super Mini IV after that with no response to two emails. I just figure it will be a nice surprise when it shows up, and might replace my iBasso T4. If a Super Micro shows up instead of the Super Mini, I'll end up selling it.

Larry i have a couple of questions, do you think it's a good idea for me to purchase a xin reference and pair it with my iriver via optical to d10 and then to the xin reference? The d10 will act as a dac and the xin as an amp. viable?

John have you tried using the d10 as a dac via the xin amp?

I would not bother with that myself - I would just use the D10 and if you need a different sound from the amp try some other opamps. I'd be perfectly happy with the stock D10 in that setup.
