iBasso D7 - Any good and should I get one???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I posted yesterday with regards to the Schiit Bitfrost and Asgard combo I was thinking of buying.....I have however decided that this is going to be more of a longer term purchse once I have a more static system at home to use it in.

 

So I am going back to the drawing board with regards to a small / portable DAC/HP Amp which I can use with my laptop (Apple Losless and 24/96 files), I am looking for something that is portable so it can be easily carried between home and office and when necesarry on business trips.

 

I currently have a uDac2 but think I could do much better soundwise on the H/P output.....I keep getting some sound imbalance when I turn the volume up and down....only slight, but its there none the less.

 

I have come across an iBasso D7 Sidewinder at a good price (£85.00 - six months old and in excellent condition). It seems to meet all the criteria I am after, powered by USB, Good DAC Chip, asynchronous transfer at 24/192 via USB and it has RCA outputs and a coax digital out. I also believe I could use this as an amplifier only via the lineout for an iPod/iPhone using an LOD cable?

 

Do you think this is a good option....anybody own / use one and what's your feedback?

 

Thanks in advance guys

Interesting review. I wonder if the reviewer have heard the Fiio stuff at all.

No need to wonder as he clearly states he has, you can read some of his reviews on the Fiio products.
