Tuned in!

Pre-orders?

Hmmm. I wish they would have used 9 volt. Guess I will still get the D4. Dual DACs does sound great though.

Hope someone can do a comparison between this, the Toucan and the previous D10

D12 DAC is in another class from the fiio E7 DAC?

 

I currently have a µdac2 and a fiio e7 but looking for something of similar form factor with s/pdif input. D10/D12 looks like it may fit the bill.

I've done a direct comparison between the uDac2 and the D10 as DACs, and IMO the D10 sounds significantly better.  It seems to have greater ability to resolve detail as well as having more "character".

 

Not sure about the D12 yet, but I suspect it will be as good or better than the D10 since iBasso is obviously testing them against each other.

This sounds very interesting.

The D12 with dual dacs and a better receiver chip and an improvement in other components and lessons learned in design, should have the D12 better in all areas. A few more days and it will be out. Then the comparison will begin.

All these new portables coming out is doing my head in :/

So, will the D12 be released tomorrow?  I see that the ibasso.com page is DOWN, which means they are probably adding the D12 right now!

I guess tomorrow but most likely on Monday, which is the 27th here or day after tomorrow as we are a day ahead.

its out! only 20 made in the first batch! order now!

post #44 of 601

I just sent iBasso a message requesting some information on the D12. I personally love the way the D4 sounds when fed via USB, using HiFlight's topkit.

what exactly is a topkit?
