Hello You All,
I just recieved my new version of the iBasso D4 and I have only had it a day.. I am not impressed with it at all, other than it came with extra parts and a spare case..
I have been using a FiiO E5 and switching to the D4 I was expecting I big difference at least a difference for the better and it was not that there..
Then I set my new iTouch's EQ to Flat and switched back and forth from D4 with LOD to using the iTouch's AMP again not much difference like the D4 vs the E5.. I have some pretty good headphones you can see below and I am pretty confused as I expected a slight SQ change with new Caps in the D4 but it was $240 vs $25 for the E5
All I am getting out of these AMPs is a little more or a lot more volume.. So when I read a review of a few dozen AMPs and the D4 was in the first or second tier right up there with RSA AMPs what am I missing?
Are AMPs all about a few more DBs ? I was expecting a higher quality sound that what the iTouch is putting out when I spend the same price as a 32G model.....
I have a pretty good ear I think.. I seen 500-600 live rock shows I worked for bands most of my life, hell Lenny Kravitz hung out at my apartmant in the 90's, I love music..
I am stumped as to no improvement in SQ
Thanks for any replies..
