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...
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 ...'
Wow should I go ahead and order one ? Nice catch
The spec if I may Translate
1) It uses the TI TAS1020B，to convert USB to 24 Bit/96KHz I2S Signal
2) Dual WM8740
3) OP + BUF design
4) selectable gain +3DB or +10DB
5) Can be used as a standalone AMP or USB audio
6) Come with built in charger (switch to on/off) and 3 cell lithium polymer (battery life 20 hours)
Size: 55 x 24 x 100 mm
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!
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 ...
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.
