Corda 2Move versus iBasso D3 Python - Page 2

post #16 of 42
Hey all, Well after doing some more reading onhead-fi regarding ibasso ir ead there will be a d10 soon. Wonder if that will be their top amp+dac?
Greetings, Anouk,

That's supposed to be their D1 replacement (with optical). Looking forward to that one myself (if the rumours are true).

Corda 2Move can't output as a DAC-only?

The D3 can act as a DAC converter with line-out and headphone-amp capabilities, the 2Move can only drive headphones.

Sorry, I didn't get it.

As far as I see both have a USB-in, a line-in and a line-out. Let's say we connect iBasso to PC via USB. Then, we connect some speakers to it via its line-out. How does it "detect" that we connected speakers but not headphone? and that it will use its DAC only, not DAC+AMP? I mean, what's the difference in procedure than 2Move?

I'm wondering that as well.

If you want to use the DAC only and bypass the amp you plug whatever you are using (separate amp, amped speakers, etc.) into the input jack. The DAC is completely powered by usb so the amp can be turned off.

i am about to get either the 2move or the D3.

can anybody compare the 2 in terms of amp sound quality and the dac sound quality?

which one will be better?

I had an opportunity to listen to the 2Move in two distinct ocassions. The second time I had it in my possession for several days. It is a nice sounding amp but one that did not agree w/ me.

I find the D3 to be clearer, w/ more detail and better extension both in the bass and highs. I would choose the D3. Plus it is smaller, and it has a line out feature.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it extremely annoying that it requires 5 AAA batteries for a D3 when most chargers can only charge 4 AAAs at a time?
post #27 of 42
Chargers usually come in 4, 6 and 8 configurations.
Go to your neighborhood RatShack and you will find the answers to all the questions of the universe.

So, man up, buy the D3 , an appropriate charger and stop complaining

I don't think you will be disappointed.

thanks for the info,

did you compare the dac quality of the 2 amps?

i will be using the dac often as it will be hooked up to my laptop and my headphone.

I am looking now and I may or may not love you for showing me the light.

I got a nice charger (I have about 8 good ones) from Thomas Distributing that will condition, charge at whatever mA's you set, discharge and cycle your batteries. It has a nice large screen so you can see what is going on with each battery and if you do a full discharge and charge it tells you how many mA's the battery will actually hold. It will charge 1, 2, 3 or 4 batteries at a time. It will also recondition batteries that seem no good which my other chargers, which are supposed to be able to do, will not. You can even cycle a battery from discharge to charge for whatever number you set, which takes many hours but it really, really conditions a battery. It is not cheap but very well worth the investment. The brand is Powerex.
