Leaving it on the charge switch shouldn't make a difference, and you don't need to unplug the battery when changing opamps (though giving it some time for the caps to discharge would be a good idea). I think maybe your battery is just near the end of its life. The best bet is to send iBasso an email.

ANyone want to buy a D10?  I'm selling mine.  

post #4143 of 4153

Hi,

sorry for wake up this tread but i have a little question...

do you think my D10 can drive a HD 800 Headphone ?

i search very neutral headphone and this HD 800 is on my list ( With SRH 1840, D7000 and HD700)

But i don't know if he can drive 300Ohms Headphone :( .

Maybe if i buy a HD 800 after i want change for a new AMP , but for start i want know if it's OK.

Sorry for my english.

Mika

The D10 should drive your HD-800 OK unless you listen at high volume levels. The D10 output is rather limited due to the low supply voltage. The HD-800 does have a reputation for being picky about what amps it sounds good with. It is worth a try before spending any more money.

Recently, I've brought the D10 into my audio rig:

Nationite S:Flo2 -> Whiplash Audio Hybrid TWAg-TWCu mini-to-mini -> iBasso D10 -> Grado HF-2 phones

and it adds SUCH a lovely increase in the abundance of rich lushness to the sound in the music to which I listen using it.

 

Substitute the HD650 for the Grado HF-2, and the result is a little different (less lushness and greater crystalline clarity),

and no less strikingly engaging a listen.

 

When I bought the SR-71A a few years ago, followed by the P-51 Mustang, I started using the D10 less.  Rolling it back into this rig reminds me of just how

wonderful a music listening instrument the D10 is.

It doesn't play them very loud, but it's loud enough, and with the stock opamps it takes away some of the fatiguing grain to the HD800 as well.  I thought the D10 paired better with HD800 than HD600/650.

My apologies for reviving a very old thread...

 

Are there any suitable DIP/through hole op amps for use as L/R and buffer opamps?  Got myself an old D10 but without the opamp rolling kit.  The opamps installed are the stock ones (ADA48412 on L/R, AD8532*2 on Buffer) which I find overly warm when paired with my earbuds.  Most of the suggested opamps on the first page are surface mount op amps and I have zero soldering skills.  While we're at it, what specifications should i look for when shopping for op amps (for L/R and buffer use)? more specifically:

 

Power Supply Type: Single or Dual?

Number of channels per chip: Ranges from 1 to 4

Typical supply voltage: Wide range

Slew Rate: Wide range

etc. etc.

 

Really sorry but any help would be most appreciated.

There's a lot of info in this thread, but you have to dig a little. Here are my notes from... wow, 7 years ago...

great, thanks! this helps.  i'll go through your recommendations and hope that i find a combination that uses through-hole (DIP) op amp chips.  Almost all the recommended chips on the first page are surface mounted (SOIC) types.

post #4152 of 4153

I forgot that the original iBasso D10 came with the opamp rolling kit with all the soic chips presoldered onto adapters. You can maybe try emailing them and see if they still have some old kits available.

post #4153 of 4153

yeah, i'll give it a shot. thanks again!
