Well the auctions on eBay didn't even go up to $169, so it'd be under that but depends on the condition too.  Let me know if you know someone who's willing to sell, we can negotiate

What does ibasso mean by 650mw +650mw?
Is this per channel or is it 650mw on battery and a further 650 when plugged in?
Just curious is all
post #753 of 768

Per channel.

Thanks. Seems like a lot of power for a cheaper amp smily_headphones1.gif.
Looking at this or the pb2
post #755 of 768

imo i would go with the p4 warbler or the pb2 both are simular and different at the same time, while the p4 is 600mw+600mw and the pb2 is 2500mw+2500mw both are hard core amplifiers, very well built and some of my fav amps ive owned. currently i own both and would recomend both, however they are just a straight amp so no dac included. the p4 is discontinued and is very hard to get ahold of. i thought about selling mine and even put it for sale, however the last time i sold my p4 i kicked myself for selling it and it was almost 2 years to source another one.

 

dont let the price tags fool you, i also own the RSA sr-71b and compared between the 3 the ibassos can stand with the sr-71b in terms on volume,ability to drive headphones, and sound quality.

So the pb2 is 2500+2500? I thought it was 2500 peak. Regardless that is borderline insane for a portable.
I might go the pb2 for now and get the db2 when I can.
Bit of a stack as far as portable goes but don't really need a DAC for my RWA imod anyway.

Thanks

that is what the specs on their website claim, and i agree. that is very powerful, some people hate a volume pot that with a slight nudge of the knob you get a good ammuont of volume personally i like it. again that will also depend on if you use gains and if you use iem or full size head phones

if you scroll to the specs you see the 2500mw+2500mw it also has a 32v voltage swing which is up there with the RSA intruder which in comparison the intruder is 700.00 and the pb2 is 325.00.if you do get a amp that is balanced capable i do recomend balanced input and output, output if you dont have or need a dac with a balanced output.....balanced make a world of difference you have to hear to believe. imo

even though my main dac/amp is the Woo Audio WA7 I still love my ibasso D6. It is a great usb amp with Wolfson 8740's for each channel that doubles as a portable amp. ibasso is a lot of bang for the buck!

Is it possible to use the D6 DAC with the DX50 through usb connection, while also using D6 as AMP?

No, the DX50 micro USB is only for charging and OTG and will not output a USB signal to the D6. The only way to use the D6 with it is via the line-out.

If you own a D6 you'll be doing yourself a great kindness if you get a Topkit from ^^^^^this guy^^^^^.

 

Got mine this afternoon, and I'll probably be pulling an all nighter!

+1 on this.

 

I got mine a few years back when i got the D6 and still listening to it right now.

post #763 of 768

I've just paired the D6 with the FIIO X3. The D6 has been neglected after all the hype of the FIIO E12 (which I purchased) and had a very enjoyable afternoon. 

 

I think I like the sound signature a hell of a lot more than the E12.

 

It's still a sensational DAC/Amp and should get more love.

It's discontinued now a long with most of the lineup of portable headamps/dacs, I wonder if they'll create a replacement or they think that D42 and D-Zero MkII are adequate replacements? 

post #765 of 768

Hi - does the d6 work as a dac (and of course amp) with android via OTG? (I searched both terms, no hits)....
