I'm just hoping somebody somewhere releases something that's cross platform compliant with whatever DAP and computer you choose to use. The only reason I don't get a Fostex or a CLAS is because I can't use it with anything else except an iPod. If they had something that would work with my computer and whatever DAP of whatever platform it was it would be nice. By the way it there anything out there that can bypass the DAC on an android device?

Very true. That is why I never purchased one either.

Hearing that they are switching from Wolfson to Sabre is very interesting.

I have heard a few Sabre DACs and they sound very very good when implemented well.

That's always bugged me too that the CLAS and HPP1 were strictly ipod only. If they were already pulling the digital information out from the ipod and feeding that into a DAC, wouldn't it just be a "simple" matter to have a usb receiver inside so it would be compatible with a regular computer?

 

We've seen this... http://www.head-fi.org/t/560757/nokia-usb-on-the-go-support-usb-digital-out-tested-with-fiio-e7

so that's proof that it's doable... different device granted, but still.

Anyone heard anything more about this? How long until release etc?

Another DAC using the Sabre silicon?

 

Sounds promising, but, as ever, it all comes down to the implementation (see: http://www.head-fi.org/t/559407/review-resonessence-labs-invicta-new-high-end-dac-amp-playback-system)

Will the D7 be portable, or will it be an desktop solution?

 

If it is portable, I will buy it... kind of looking forward to it :)

It is a portable but it may serve as both, just in a small package.

I just inquired about the price and details and received this email from iBasso, and my guess it will be priced at ~280 b/t the D6 at 275 and D12 at 285

 

Hi,
Thank you for your email.
The D7 is a USB-DAC, it cant take digital signal from iPods.
The price is btw 200 to 300USD.
 
Sincerely
iBasso Audio
