iBasso D-Zero - Page 2

post #16 of 218

Just because it's cheaper doesn't necessarily mean the amp is worse. It looks like the T3/T4 are being phased out... maybe with the DB0 as replacement and with more competitive pricing.

Perhaps, but that'll be a very poor marketing decision from iBasso, trying to price its own products against each other (T3 is still on sale and more expensive than D-ZERO). I do hope you are right however, as I am interested in D-Zero myself.

Anyone here wants to buy it and review it for the team?  I like the design of it and looks much better than my E11 imho.  I would buy one if I have the money (very limited funds at the momentfrown.gif)

With iBasso calling out TPA6130 as a cheap opamp, I guess the intention to target E7 is pretty clear on iBasso's part. I won't mind picking one up except I already buy an amp this month. Well, maybe sometime next month. I actually already have E7 (with the L7) and Headstage USB DAC cable where both use the same PCM270x + WM8740 structure for DAC. Will be interesting to do a three ways shootout.

 

[EDIT] Saw impression on another site comparing D-ZERO to D2 Boa. Overall it seems that D-ZERO sounds a bit better than D2 Boa.

Heh, who wants to be the next Skylab and start compiling a giant portable amps thread? (or taking a step further back, the portable dac/amp thread like HeadphoneAddict)

I think they are only talking about the amp section. but I can't be sure. They are referring D-ZERO as the D2 Boa successor.

Is it just me or does it seem like the chinese is google translated? atsmile.gif

 

Never mind, just checked it again, the grammar is perfect. Although it does seems like the person speak pretty good English though. atsmile.gif

LOL, I just noticed that this thread is in the wrong sectiontongue.gif  Was trying to find it at the "portable amp" section but couldn't find it.  Would be helpful if a mod transferred this thread to the proper section so we can get more comments especially to the people who already ordered/owned it.

I had started one in the portable amps forum, but then noticed this one so asked mods to delete it. rolleyes.gif

I have had many of the iBasso products and have never been let down by their performance. Currently own the PB1, DB1, and D4. So ... I broke down and just ordered the D-Zero, $131 w/ expedited shipping/handling. Should be fun trying this new toy. Cheers.
