Yeah, first thing I did was check the site But I think that Jamato receives info ahead of time, since he is a regular reviewer of iBasso.

Ugh, I wish I could justify having more than one Portable DAC/Amps... as this looks awesome. I keep buying them then selling them off.

looks good for sitting on the desk. look forward to jamato's review on its dual wolfson dac.

Can't wait to hear how this things sounds. In!

The ability to use 9V is very interesting.

In theory, the best 9V op-amp should sound better than the best 5V op-amp.
You could have more voltage headroom and better constant current sources powering the differential pair.

But when the 9V goes flat and you need to fall back to USB you need to change/Roll OP-amp.

Will need to spend time searching for the best 5V op-amp and the best 9V op-amp.
A great product to eat away more of my time, and maybe money.

excited! XD XD

i wonder if it will be able to use li-ion "9V" battery...
post #25 of 1152
Sigh, that thing is so hot. I am glad I waited for the next generation of Ibasso amps. Now it's either I get this or wait for a similar product but with optical also. I wonder how long the battery life is though.

Too bad this doesn't have a charging circuit for the battery
post #27 of 1152
yes, lwhile intriguing, not what i'm waiting for. although at the moment i'm toying with the idea of a 'portable' battery modded VALAB I would and will still buy the dual 8740 D11, which I would guess is not that far away

I wonder, how do you get the line-out out of the DAC? Jumper?

The jack by the volume control has a detector that will make it either a line out from the dac or a line in so you can use just the amp section.

The run time on a 300mA battery is 9 hours. There is a lot for a battery to power. The op amp, buffer and two dacs. I guess that my 500mA li poly will run around 15 hours or so. Alkalines, would run longer.

Thanks for the explanation. Quite an interesting thing to know
