Ibasso D2 Boa . . . new and smaller . . . with updates on 1st page. . - Page 73

post #1081 of 1141
Plugged my HD650 into D2 boa. it sounded fantastic actually - even cranked up to 100%...it just wasn't particularly loud - too comfortable a sound level. But i couldn't fault the delicacy of the sound and lack of clipping or distortion or any sonic problems.

was set to high gain.

In contrast a xin reference portable can make the HD650 really really loud lol

You haven't compared an HD650 and HD600 on the D2 vs 3MOVE or a Woo WA6 though...

Unfortunately I don't have enough cash and being in UK means no loaners or people nearby with stuff to share

I AM looking for a proper desktop amp though, although the amp of my DAC is more than adequate and the xin reference passes as adequate too, I don't have enough to try everything
I have heard the HD650 via a modded x-can V3 and pinkie - it was soo lush.

but for more, shipping+taxes= bankrupcy.

I could only really afford the stock WA6 too....
and 3move is a portable

Slee Solo SRG, TTVJ fet A, AMB M3 are the options I'll probably go with - i haven't caught tube bug yet.

Those are all good options - I liked the Grahm Slee NOVO with a sigma 11 PSU, and also really liked naamaf's M^3 as well.

I just received D2 Boa that I bought from fellow headfier. I bought it for my iphone but plugged in HD600 for fun. Not really impressed with the sound with HD600... I liked Peridot with HD600 better than iBasso. However, sounds great with my IEM

I just bought an iBasso D2 as my first headphone amp/DAC. I have a set of Sennheiser HD 205s , DENON AH-D501K and Ultrasone iCans. I will be getting a better set of headphones down the road.
I have listened to a few different amps and I am very impressed with it and the price/performance value. iBasso makes and excellent product. Quick shipping from Hong Kong and great customer service.

A noobie question?

Whats high gain and low gain? Any significant difference in sound?
post #1088 of 1141
Thread Starter 
Not much difference in sound but what high gain does is amplify the incoming signal more and if the amp has enough power, you will get more volume with a set of headphones.

Some headphones require more power so a higher gain gives you greater volume but if the amp doesn't have the power to go along with the greater gain, the sound will just distort. Many times IEM's are better with the low gain and you have better travel of the volume control.

Is it possible to use the D2 boa as a dac only and then use a separate amp?
post #1090 of 1141
There is no way to bypass the amp section with the D2. The D3 and D10 offer an unamped line-out.

Is it possible for D2 to charge and play at the same time? I've looked into a couple of replies and it's either unclear or reply would be like D10 can be charged. but no one actually said that D2 could be charge and play at the same time. Thanks in advance.

ooo Thanks a million bro. ^^ Looking forward to get my Green D2 soon hehe

After reading through most of these 70 odd pages ... I decided I couldn't resist. I ordered my D2 Boa yesterday and can't wait for it to arrive.

Has anyone tried this amp/dac with shure e4c (or nowadays scl4)? Is that a good combination to start off with?

IBasso is really fast ... parcel was sent on Friday and arrived in Germany Monday! Am really impressed with the amp ... sound is amazing.
