REVIEW: Go Vibe Petite DAC/AMP vs. D1 - Page 7

post #91 of 133
Thanks oicdn....

I saw blackcatz mention the petite/esw9 in passing but I was hoping for
a more rousing endorsement. I sent an email to Jaben regarding the petite as I couldn't find it on the website. I don't know that I am all that interested in the dac version as I would be using it almost exclusively from the line out on an Ipod. I suppose I could use it from my Imac when I am sitting at the computer.
I am just looking for something that will give me significantly better than ipod headphone jack sound without spending $500.

Can anyone tell me how the Govibe petite DAC/Amp sound with the hd595? And the setup, iPod classic->Petite->Yuin pk2, anyone tried it?

Sorry for my English

I'd like to know this as well, if there's any hiss at all, the livewires will pick it up :/

Hiss with the UM2s is quite notable, even on low gain, but UM2s hiss with just about everything I've tried, so not the fault of the Petite. With everything else, with music paused, hiss isn't apparent until well past 12 o'clock on the volume. Once you hit 10 o'clock, everything gets unbearably painful, even with DT770s, so I would assume hiss to be well controlled under most circumstances, except for IEMs, of course.

Damn. Oh well, back to the drawing board then

Where the hell can I order this? Every time I try and e-mail Jaben regarding products or support I NEVER get a reply. I've tried 5+ times!

EDIT: Might as well ask: will this work good with my DT880s?
EDIT2: How much is the amp-only version and DAC version?

I emailed Jaben a couple days ago. Go-Vibe Petite is not in stock and sold out. Said next shipment would be in about a month's time. $195US for amp w/ DAC version.

Yes..there is hiss

but not really noticeable unless you off the music and up the amp volume until 12 o'clock

but normally if use your normal volume, the hiss is minimal and not really noticeable

My iem is um2

anyone think the Petite would be a superior amp to the new iBasso D2-Viper? if so why? and educated assumptions please...

It will be impossible to know until somebody gives us feedback and owns both or has the chance to audition them. BUT, although I expect the Petite to not be left in the dust, judging by the diversity the D1 allowed you to have, rolling opamps should prove to be a VERY interesting scenario against ANY amp its size.

Future/Current Go-Vibe Petite owner take note that the rechargeable battery needs to be at least 850 mAh or else the amp won't run, at all.

Thanks for my stupidity now I got 4 useless AAA batteries.

I've got a question! Is it normal for a sound delay when using the DAC function when playing games? Because I played StarWars Battlefront 2 and the audio-video sound lag is annoyinggggggggggg, seriously.

Already turned the sound hardware acceleration off, no dice. Help pl0x?

Is there any latency control? Minimizing the latency would help to clear that up.

To be fair, a new 'audiophile' will find either the Go Vibe Petite or the iBasso D1 an outstanding upgrade in sound quality with a decent set of cans. No, I have not heard the Go Vibe, but do own the D1. After rolling op amps in the D1, I really cannot say I hear a significant difference from the stock op amps. Though I continue to try new combos, anyone thinkng of getting the highly versatile D1 would not be disappointed.
