Comparison Of Five Portable Amps: SR71, SR71A, Reference, D3, and MiniBox-E+ - Page 2

post #16 of 31
I can't get past the sound of the 4562. To me it is too HIFi and plastic after a short while. I have tried it over and over, wanting it to be otherwise. The specs are great but . . .

Yes the SR71A reached 1,100 hours of burn in. IMO its ranking did not change, which was a pity since I was hoping it would be better than the SR71. But that was not to be.

In the D2 Viper, with LM6172 in ground, I can ASSURE you that plastic should be the last thing you will think of when you listen to the LM4562. It truly comes close to replicating the D3 and Pico.

Ok, I will give it a try but if you have the D3 then why? 8^)

Is it better or is that a relative term?

enjoying the Lisa III right now. Solid performer.

Um, I sold the D2 Viper and kept the D3 Python mainly due to the battery life and no line out, but the sound was just as good. I did order my eneloop batteries yesterday...

I like the eneloops also because even if you don't use them for a while you still have a charge whereas the other NiMH batteries lose their charge at a rapid rate, as we all know. In a way even though the eneloops are a lower mA I get a longer run time just because they don't lose the charge.

Don't forget, I am already using the Rayovac "Hybrid" NiMH that hold a long charge for up to 6 months @ 80% charge (or something like that). But you guys blasted me for not trying the eneloops in my review...

Gosh, I didn't know you got BLAsted. I feel bad now. You shouldn't buy something just because someone else thinks you should. Actually I don't like them. They make the sound suck. I'm throwing mine away right now.

just kidding. Your life will be transformed. :^)

Eneloops Rule

Eneloops rule!!!

I have them in everything in my house...and they rock in digicams as well...I get about 550 shots and the camera is always ready to go.

I'm quite confused over this whole battery thing. I bought the Eneloop for my Reference from Thompson; on their site along with the Eneloops are a few other "hybrid" and "low discharge" batteries that sound like they might be like the Eneloops. But that said, went with the Eneloop anyway because of the reviews here. And yes, I know I shouldn't buy something just because someone says they like it, but how else do we here buy and test things without someone recommending them???

Pardon my noobish ignorance but what are eneloops? and why do people like to use it as their batteries for amps?

Low discharge batteries which holds a charge longer, overall.

And they have a different chemical makeup with a lower internal resistance. Stack a few batteries and more resistance to current flow, i.e. decreased dynamics are a possibility. I like them for that and the long charge time they hold. The other types of low discharge should be as good.

And they are a low resistance so they can offer quicker jumps in current draw when needed by the amp.

Does the D3 charge through the USB like the D2 can? Does not say on the iBasso site which I guess means it does not but I figured I would ask to make sure.
