iBasso D42 "Mamba" with dual dacs! !! Hey Hey! Improved Starting on Page 76 . - Page 51

Thanks for the replies! It would indeed be wonderful to be able to use the amp section with USB power only, without any batteries (for desktop bound operations) and then be able to just pop a battery in and be able to go mobile using the D4 purely as an amp.

Anyway, i've already made payment on one unit so will post my findings/impressions soon! Cheers!

qussl3: Did you get your unit from Jaben?

I'am not very sure if yourpost was a question, but all you've mentioned is what you can do with the D4, its a nice amp and awesome DAC.

Nope got it from stereo, AFAIK Jaben doesn't carry ibasso, bought the rechargeables and charger from them though

If you happen to be in Singapore, and don't mind having your warranty located here its a better deal to buy from Stereo than through ibasso when you factor in shipping.

Thanks for the tip! I'll be returning to Singapore pretty soon, so am kinda scouting out "audiophile" places for when i return!

I'll make stereo in PS one of my first stops when back!

Cheers!

Is this iBasso D4 suitable for both my IE8's and AKG701s?

I need a portable amp but was wondering if there is one that can power both my headphones.

Meier Corda3Move is what most would recommend, as K701's are really hard to drive.

Should I get the iBasso D4 for my IE8's and get a non-portable amp for my K701s? and if so what AMP would be good for my K701s?

It feels as a nice idea to use D4 as a portable amp with IEM's, with your home amp for K701 what is your budget, you could use the D4 as a DAC .

My budget for a home amp 800 US tops

If that is the case get a nice tube amp,in fact get the top one WA6 WooAudio6 - Single-ended Triode Class-A Tube Headphone Amplifier, Output Transformer Coupled

make sure you buy the Sophia Tube Rectifier, that is another $150.00 a requirement

Well, mine just got in - thanks Anouk! It is very nice and after the FiQuest, a bit smaller than I thought! I'll be spending quality time with it for quite a while.

I hope the fast shipping iBasso is know for also applies to Brazil. I don't see anything on the tracker yet though (it shipped on Monday), does anyone who got it shipped on Monday as well see anything on the tracked yet?
post #763 of 1153
You will receive it in a day or two is my guess.

Mine shipped yesterday (monday) to the US. Yesterday it showed as picked up in SHENZHEN, CN at 6:20pm local time, and today the current status is that it has departed from GUANGZHOU, CN at 9:13pm local time. Don't know where the next stop is, but yes it's definitely en route and trackable. Did you try to track by reference number using the number and link they gave in email? Even if it's not trackable yet, if they sent you the shipping email I would think it's en route.
