D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions - Page 9

post #121 of 664

I have more then 15 hours of listenning throught my D7 and I have another obserbation to share.  My Klipsh Image One are already strong on Bass and the D7 seems to boost the bass a little bit so you loose definition in the lower mids wich affect some male voices.  I guess that the D7 would perform better with a "monitoring" type of headphone like the Audio Technica M-50.

 

I still love my D7  and I was planning to get the M-50 anyway ... I just thought that it could be helpfull to share this observation.

Thanks for any information.

 

Best,


Wow your first post on head-fi is such a question.

 

Yes. Integer Mode is supported on Audirvana. The USB receiver chip used is XMOS.

uelover, thank you for the prompt response ... i will be looking hard at picking up the D7, once i figure out if it would be worthwhile to wait until June for the proposed iBasso DAC using the ESS Sabre ...

 

thanks again!

Hi everyone,

 

I recently received the Shure SRH-940 headphones, and was planning on buying the D7 for use at home. I was wondering if anyone has been able to confirm (through software such as TheSycon USB program or as described in this thread ) that the USB implementation is asynchronous? I know the XMOS chip is supposed to support it, but it never hurts to check, right? :)

 

I also had another question since several people on here are owners of other iBasso products. I am looking for a portable headphone amplifier that I can use in the office (the D7 is going to be living at home). I was looking at maybe the T5, but there's no information available on the output impedance. Since the Shures are ~42 ohms, I want to make sure to get a headphone amp that brings out the best in it. My price range is around the $200 mark, so any recommendations are welcome.

 

Thanks in advance everyone!

XMOS USB Audio Class 2 under Linux without driver, no need of equalizer with my HD650. No hiss at all and very small size. A good compagnion for my laptop and only one cable. Very nice sounding and useful device, very happy with the sound !

I have a couple of very low impedance phones (less than 40 ohms) that I often use with my T5 and it performs very well. IIRC, the T5 has an output impedance less than 1.

Was thinking of picking one of these up (or maybe a HRT Headstreamer) and I couldn't find the output impedance listed anywhere, anyone know or can test it?

post #131 of 664

Yes :) I tried some tracks at 24/96 last evening and the sound is amazing !

The XMOS chipset is the most used in audio class 2 compliant DAC's ! Also iBasso say under main features : Asynchronous USB transfer.

I have never done as much listening as I have done with the D7 feeding the P4 to my LCD-2s

 

Can you say:

 

Ménage à trois

 

post #134 of 664

The D7 performs way, way above its price. An excellent investment for musical enjoyment. 

post #135 of 664

I received my D7 this wednesday, and so far I like with my modded T50rp's.
