I Basso HDP R 10 is IBasso DX 100 Japan Version impressions thread - Page 80

post #1186 of 1621

Does anybody know if ibasso has an external DAC/Amp combo that has the same sound as the R10?  With the desktop 9018 and all?

Looks like he is using an AK240 as a very expensive Hugo transport!

 

I'd settle for either the AK240 or Hugo in my dreams...!

Yeah, because AK240 probably has the higher output sampling rate that the users want.  Yes, it's expensive transport for output sampling, but you can always detach it use it with CIEM as AL says he doesn't think the Hugo sound that great with CIEMs.

if still after buying the AK240 I need the hugo for amping then I think non are worth to look at as those are ridiculously expensive gadgets.

 

Paying for example 2400 for Ak 240 and still need amping then its out of my things to buy

 

and if the chord hugo does not sound good for ciems then the same applies

For me it gave a very nice improvement on the overall sound of the system. However, the impact of cables if of course smaller than IEMs or DAP.

In the pic it shows the hd vd800 , ak240 , Hugo by chord , hibino HDP r10. . No transport was used in this simple testing started last night.
The first stage of testing is simple each device on it's own as a complete system except the amp is is used for all from the hdvd800 .
My reason was to eliminate the amps in the test . In this way it's about the dac inside only.
The Hugo and direct stream ws played from a surface pro win 8 jriver 19. The daps played there way as individuals
Low Rez PCM to hi Rez PCM and dsd was used .
In using the amp of just one device I was able to isolate the sound quality much faster . As not using the internal amps allowed me to .

Some interesting results to post tonight.
I can give you a hint the hibino fairs much better then I thought it would .

which seller from ebay you recommend me buying from, as I don't want to end up having a defective unit. I heard some sellers on ebay sell rejected devices as new, so I don't want to fall into a big trap of arguing with the seller if something went bad

Buy from PriceJapan?

Where did you download the beta version from? I'd like to know the origin of that file. Thanks, Al.

Today, the device was hanging on startup. I can't boot it anymore. I did about 10 attempts. The battery is still about 70%. I'm charging it now to make it kickstart.

Thanks again, Al.

 

I managed to get into the service menu. First, I tried a reboot from the service menu. It still froze. Then, I got into the service menu again and did a factory reset, a flush of the cache and reboot. It resulted in a successful reboot. My data is still intact. I will download 8.0.3. How long have you been using 8.0.3?
