That's the P2. Pretty sure. Have a look at the back. There isn't any mini-USB jack. Only the Gain and Bass switches.
I have had for a few months an iBasso D1 which I purchased for $229 plus $23 for S&H. The D1 has been a fantastic unit which after many op-amps I have settled on:
- LT6234 as the DAC op-amp
- AD8599 as the Amp op-amp w/ LHM6643 (2) as the buffers
Well today I received a new amp by iBasso to test and see what I think. At first impressions it looks like a mini D1 due to its similar exterior construction. However, upon closer examinations you notice:
- DAC is only fed via USB
- It has a three way gaing switch on the back
- It has a three level bass boost on the back
I plan on burning it in for 200 hours before I live w/ it for a week and get use to its stock sound. Then I will explore swapping op-amps. So far I can say that many users will find its smaller size and lighter wait very appealing.
Here are some pictures.
As it burns in I will post additional information.
