Interesting that they wont give any kind of estimate on the DX100 - clearly, it wont be 'sub $250', but I'm sure they are equally unwilling to say 'over $500' .... .

Can the D7 be used as a usb>spdif converter? I have been looking into getting one of those.

So its not portable? It only runs off USB? There is no battery?

Yes it can, but is it in the same league as HiFace or HagUsb... I don't think so. Then what's the purpose for you m8...

Looks like there is no battery inside. Else they would state that there is in features list.

so basically its a desktop DAC? 

post #55 of 93

dac/amp, usb only

 

looks like they downgraded again from the 8741 to the 8740

 

oh hey... it's class A now, that's interesting!

I had many of the same concerns about being 'tied to my laptop' when I bought the MSII, but you quickly realise that its only a problem if you planned to use the DAC with sources that dont have a USB port - I cant extract the digital signal from any of my DAPs, so its a non-issue for me. That said, my paltry few shekels are earmarked for other things - still keen to hear impressions on this gadget.

hey, at least it is really cheap, I guess it will be a pretty good idea to stack the P4 and the D7 together to create a non-balanced mini system giving the fact you can find a nice short RCA to 3.5mm cable..

It's got a 3.5mm lineout on the front.

Hmm I were hoping for something a little more high-end but who knows perhaps it sounds good.

 

post #60 of 93

USB 3.0 ports offer 900 mW ... but not sure if only, when a USB 3.0 Device is connected to it. Btw: Is there a limitation in some way on what can be sent through USB, apart from just its bandwidth? I'ts not such a bad device, even for the price ... it's an external high end soundcard. Others aren't much cheaper usually.
