Why did you post this Jamato8? I hate you no seriously, I hate you
Yes, but I wonder about how the AMP part compares to the MOVE.

Not really a fan of the nano styled iBasso stuff, so this thing is looking HOT.

Build quality looks great this time, but still dislike the Ibasso font...it is not easy to be a perfectionist .

Wow. Can't wait to hear your impressions jamato8!

From the specs it looks pretty good. Love to hear the comparison with the Move both on the DAC and Amp sides. It is significantly bigger though... I see it as a portable amp for laptop, unless a test can confirm it's practicle to carry around with a mp3 player.

Has anyone else noticed that this "new" iBasso DAC/AMP looks amazingly like the Mini-Audio MAD-1 DAC/AMP, which has been out for a long time:



I reviewed it quite a while back...they appear identical physically, but the iBasso version appears to have a very useful USB input added.

"D1 is successor to Mini-Audio MAD01, which is a successful design of portable DAC/AMP combo, but did not attract much attention. D1 better addresses some shortages on MAD01, and has USB-DAC ability."

OK, I missed that, sorry, so "Mini-Audio" and iBasso are sort of the same company I guess???

i wonder how my 0404 usb fare compared with this little guy.. ^-^

This just might be ideal for both my MacBook and Sony CD Walkman D-EJ2000!

this looks sweet. I may sell my T2 and get one of these right away.

Yes, but will that stack up to our EARS.

Don't be too quick to sell your gear LepakVT.

The D1 looks very reminiscent of the Mini-Audio MAD01 with USB added. They even have the same DAC chip.

Take a look around the forum for the Mini-Audio, I believe Sky reviewed it. However, it did not receive stellar marks from the man.

It appears to be quite large, though I can't exactly pin-point how big it really is.

Looks like you missed post #23 and #24. Take a look at Sky's pic. He shows the MAD01 with a 1/8" plug inserted and gives and idea of at least height and width. Looks pretty compact. Very interesting unit indeed.
