New balanced portable amp from RSA w/ DAC! - Page 9

post #121 of 258

Well, I mainly use the Intruder as an amp, and with the price I paid for (the same as the price of a SR-71B), having a working DAC section can be considered as a bonus

Agree with Doralikesmath. I use Intruder as amp, and DAC is a good bonus I can have.

OK but still... I can't believe it is limited to 16/48 out of à PC or Mac !! Must be out of à smartphone That this limitation occurs ?

Yeah, the limit is still there.

What are the specs on this unit?  What DAC chip is in there?

 

I heard it at CanJam and it drove the HE-6 plenty loud and with ease.

That's quite a shame. I don't know much about all the technical stuff inside these DAC/Amp boxes, but I didn't think being able to run at least 24/96 would be a big issue now a days.

 

I'm sure the Intruder is still great, but I hadn't even considered it would be limited to 16/48. I was hoping it would be a decent little all-in-one solution to place between my MBP and headphones. tongue.gif

Was hoping this would be a beefy upgrade of my Furutech ADL Stride(which is 24/96 capable) One that mightlead me to more hard-to-drive headphones. Oh well. My wallet is thankful.

Had a brief listen in Tokyo with LCD-3s. Sounded great using USB out of Ray's laptop. Shame about the USB limitations though, however I've seen a few designers stick to chipsets that work with the iPad CCK itself which is limited to 16/48 output when not streaming. Might be worth asking Ray about this.

post #129 of 258

I hope that's not his reasoning if the CCK no longer works with the new lighting idevices.

Thuis 16/48 limitation is really a bad news. Because of this It can NOT be my universal battery Powered portable portable DAC/Amp for my MacBook air or tablet PC :-((

-->. Does someone know a super good sounding battery Powered portable USB DAC/Amp ( and "ballanced" if possible )that will support 24/192 kHz from my MacBook air or tablet PC. ( besides the Solo -dB + a portable ballanced amp)

.... I have today my complete library organized in iTune with many many hours already spent organizing the playlists, and cleaning the metadata (titles, artiste, visuals), so,  is there a way to transfert all this work under an Android player, so that I do not need to create again all those playlists.

 

iSyncr does a good job syncing iTunes playlists to Android devices.
