Are you sure it's to on/off the charger, not the amp? :P

Just for reference, as detailed on the Ibasso page:

Main Features:
- Wolfson WM8740 DAC Chip + TI PCM2706
- USB signal input, provides I2S interface for decoding
- Work as a DAC+AMP Combo or a standalone AMP
- 2-Setting Gain Switch for impedance matching
- 470mAh rechargeable Li-polymer battery with integrated charging system
- Measures 51*21*82mm, and weights only 108g
- Battery life is 38hours
- leather pouch, AC adapter, USB cable, warranty card, and owner's manual

Anyone know much about the Wolfson DAC chip used and what kind of reputation it has?

Thread Starter 
The Wolfson dac is made in different grades, like anything. The one they use is very good.

On the switch, I assume they use the on/off at the volume control, like before but I could be wrong. I have ask them about this. I would want to be able to turn off the charging if I was on the road and happened to use the dac with the laptop but to be honest I don't use my laptop as a portable source but there are some very small laptops now that could provide this mobile source.

Hm... this charge off USB thing is pretty interesting... it sucks when I'm listening off my laptop and all sound just suddenly dies...

Gah, if that's the case, this amp would almost be perfect for me aside for the usage of a Li-Poly battery. User replaceable 9V batteries FTW!

Hmm is the amp section different than the viper?

Wow interesting little amp. Nice price too at a little over $160 USD. I might have to order one to try.

If I'm seeing things right, it shows as 104 euros, which is about $250, isn't it?

Oh, yeah ignore me.

This seems to be exactly the right product at the right kind of price. Looking forward to some reviews.

Did you notice their PayPal email is "sevice@ibasso.com" which seems not a valid address? wondering if they can receive money...

Probably it should be ceviche@...

Looks like the Euro is gaining after a slight decline Exchange Rates Graph (American Dollar, Euro)

No i didnt <_< paypal worked so i assumed it was fine...

If it really is $160, it'd be a steal. I'd love my D2 to be USB chargeable, but I love it anyway

Does this mean the D2-Viper is 12V while the Boa is 5V?
