iBasso D6 "Fer-de-Lance" USB DAC/Amp

post #1 of 762
Thread Starter 

Surprise! I just found the D6 on iBasso's store at taobao.com (the eBay equivalent in China). It's not even on ibasso.com yet...

 

Dual WM8740 

Supports 24/96! (uses TAS1020B)

Nice scoop, pekingduck...

 

BTW, I want to try to do "Tea-Smoked Turkey" next U.S. Thanksgiving.  Any "Christmas Story" movie fans might find that amusing.  (Sorry for the off-topic comment.)

 

Anyway, less inputs but what about rolling?  Split case?

 

For those who don't need the optical or RCA, this could be a nice entry into DAC/amps!

 

(I am still happy with my D12...this is his half-French brother?)

Not really..this one supports 24/96 over USB and doesn't have SPDIF inputs

Fantastic - I am posting in a new iBasso amp thread BEFORE paulybatz or jamato8 ! This is a red letter day indeed - thanks pekingduck !

 

Oh, and, er, go iBasso - sneaking this one in under the radar. Unless its a fake, in which case I will have all traces of this post removed, CIA-style. The more I look at the casework, the more I am inclined to go 'hmmmmm ...'

If the D12 is the new D10, then am I to assume this replaces the D4?

Stand by for an announcement very soon by iBasso regarding this new device!   It will answer many of the above questions.    I am, however, sworn to secrecy, but I can say that it it will be a "Killer"!!!   And yes, the Topkit will be available immediately!

It is very interesting news. What would need Windows drivers?
post #12 of 762

Windows now will put out 24/96 on the USB as will the latest Apple software. You have to go into the configuration for this to set up 24/96. On Apply you go into the MIDI setup after the USB device is plugged in.

C'mon Ron - are we talking D4-style killer or P4-style killer ?  I'm getting a little dizzy trying to keep up ...

post #14 of 762

any chance to compare to full-size amp/dac?

iBasso should be making their announcement on the 1st of Jan.  It will be a significant step forward and very well received, IMO.  iBasso raises the bar with great regularity.  Their R&D engineers must work 24/7!  Even more amazing considering the very small number of employees.
