New Practical Devices XM6 Amp/DAC (The Complete Review) - Page 5

post #61 of 555

Hmm, seeing as the D10 only uses one opamp, I'm guessing they're all dual channel? Or can some work as both?

post #62 of 555

D10 uses dual channel opamps, so they won't be compatible.

 

Unless you have two opamps on a socketed 2x1 adapter, then you can remove the two since they are mono opamps and use them in the XM6.

You're right, my bad.   I haven't owned a D10 in a long while.

Great job on the review. You've sold me now I just have to convince my wallet.

So pins 1, 3, and 5 make up a line-out from the DAC through the Auxiliary socket?

you know i dont see the most important bits, whens it comming and how much?

post #70 of 555

Too bad it only has analog and USB inputs, it would have been nice if it had optical/coax SPDIF as well like the iBasso D10/12.

Yes, that would make it nearly complete and hard to beat.

I'm not sure when PD plans to release the XM6 (I hope they weren't waiting on me), or what the final price is supposed to be.

That was my suggestion to PD.  Maybe we'll see it in the XM7?

Well the D12 just came out, which is pretty stiff competition right off the hop. Let's hope the little Canadian amp maker can make a good run of it.

I hope so too.  At least you get color choices with the XM6.   I would love to get a D12 in black or blue.

I hope the pricing is competitive at least. Oftentimes people don't account for all the features in the value, so all they see is $ for a dac/amp which put the XM5 at a disadvantage, and will probably affect the XM6 similarly. iBasso also has better momentum going for them and release more products overall, so their name recommendation is way up.

 

I think if the XM6 were able to use all these dual channel opamps I have, it'd almost be a sure sale for me (plus I like to support my local Canadian guys).
