iBasso D-Zero USB-DAC and AMP, for only $109 - Page 2

post #16 of 28

^ thanks for the picts, looks slimmer than I thought. and not square as the uHA4. 

 

what other DAC+AMP would you be comparing it, Mrarroyo?

I think I'm going to order one. The price isn't bad at all and I've got a company trip coming up at the end of the month, and if I have to put up with the sound out of my laptop I'm going to go crazy. 

Might pick up a LOD as well and see how well it pairs with my iPod too!

Well, lets see confused.gif wink.gif

 

iBasso P4 w/ TopKit

iBasso PB1/DB1 Combo fed from iRiver H120 w/ 80 GBHD

Leckerton Audio UHA4

 

I could use a bunch of other portable amps I have like MiniBox-ES, Xin's Reference (last version using modules C5 or D5).

Earlier today I realized I had not used the D-Zero as a DAC only. So about 3 hours ago I started feeding a Graham Slee Solo SRGII w/ PSU1 using the 1/8" out of the D-Zero.  I am using a copper Kimber Kable 1/8" to RCA interconnect. For headphones I am going back and forth between a HiFiMAN HE300 and a Sennheiser HD580.

I should have one of these soon to compare with the FiiO E7, both very comparable devices it seems!

I just received mine, thanks iBasso! I've done some very quick ABX tests and I think I prefer this to my E7 already. While it has almost the same internals as the E7, everything simply sounds a little cleaner and open so far. I feel that the amp, similar to the one in the E7, is a bit stronger. I'll hold the rest of my thoughts for my full review sometime next week.

Here's some preview pictures of the D-Zero next to the FiiO E7. As you can see it's much slimmer making it much more portable.

Sorry guys but I have been swamped with work and have not had an opportunity to truly devote the time needed to compare the D-Zero. From informal listening I am more than impressed by both the DAC and the Amp sections. The AD8656 op-amp is a very nice sounding unit which I really liked with the Xin's amps. Actually I preferred the 8656 over the 8616 op-amp.
