D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions - Page 19

post #271 of 671

Anyone tried the D7 with the K701? I know it would be asking a LOT from such a small package but +/- 5v of voltage swing is pretty good...

Thanks for the input guys! I agree, a RED one would be awesome. Maybe I'll re-paint it once it comes... I got the black one though.

Red would be TIGHT!

I ordered one on Friday but now I can't remember what color I ordered.  I guess it'll be a nice suirprise.

You know what they say about going with black...

 

You didn't go with silver.

I just got a package in the mail this afternoon - black D7. It's built quite nicely. It does seem to have a bit brighter of a presentation than my uDac-2 - possibly more detail. It's really too early to tell. It didn't require the driver download (netbook with XP), so it may have somehow recognized it as my Centrance Axeport (not a computer expert.) It says "XMOS USB 2.0 Audio" at the bottom of the volume control window, but also says "Centrance Playback Mixer" at the top. Not sure if I should install the iBasso driver at this point...maybe I will install the iBasso driver on my Windows 7 machine to see what comes out of it.

 

Sounds pretty good, but need time to acclimate...

Please give it time to burn in. There are just too many capacitors in the D7. The sound will become much better after 100hours (and more) of use. No brightness and the sound will become smoother and more open.

I went with black for my previous DAC/amp... I guess that's why I couldn't go back to silver... biggrin.gif

Just popped for one too, wanted something to use with my Macbook Air, this will fit the bill perfectly.

I certainly will, thanks. I am looking forward to it (but will be patient!)

 

Oh, and on an unrelated note I did get it working with my Windows 7 machine (installed the driver and all is well.)

The black one looks sweet "in person". I think you will be pleased!

Congrats, guys! Hopefully you will be burning yours in, too, in no time. They seem to ship fast to the majority, which is nice!

 

Just got done with a late night listen...

Just got mine last night. Surprisingly light and the black finish is great. My old D3 Python was a shiny, glossy finish. This is a soft finish, almost feels like a wet suit or something haha.

 

Build looks great and I love that they included rubber feet to stick on. Impressions to come—let me know if anyone wants pictures.

I want few :)
