Must get silver interconnect!!!
post #2837 of 3314
Wow. Was away for a little over 2 days and really glad that so many folks here have poured in with so many impression and thoughts with regards to the C3/BH and X3. Didn't factor in the DX50 but it's getting me thinking about it right now. Appreciate all the thoughts and impressions folks and it seems that all 3 players are evenly matched with each having their strength. Guess I will have a hard time deciding among them and looks forward to any further thoughts or impression from all helpful folks here. Cheers.

one thing I keep thinking of for my own needs is that the DX50 certainly isn't going to give you the headroom for harder to drive/higher ohm/lower sensitivity portable/fullsize headphones. Unless it has 600mw output, which I don't think it does.

 

Dealbreaker for me, but I'm probably in the minority.

It's always about you nick, isn't it? :D

 

Seriously though, was the BH able to drive your ortho-beasts? If so, I'm kinda surprised that the DX50 couldn't do so as well. But you would know!

Ok. Found a used C3 for an attractive price . Does it make sense to pick it up since I already have the BH2?

From what I've gathered so far but might be wrong, the C3 have a sound signature closer the DX50 which suits my taste better than the X3. For that matter, I can get the C3 for a quarter of the price of the DX50.

So, the question is whether the DX50 is that much more better over the C3/BH2 to justify the cost. Hoping for some kind opinions from all you folks here to help me out. Cheers.

Now I really must get a silver interconnect! My BH interconnect cable broke on me, so I am using my Fiio L8 cable. Awkward. And it's not silver!

I would go ahead and pick up the C3. DX50 is the better sounding player however isn't completely stable yet. By getting C3 (cheap) this would give you something to play with and keep busy while iBasso sort out their player over the next few weeks, as curiosity will only get the better of you in the end. For the money you'll be buying C3 to put a rig together you're not losing much and gaining .. If however, you're not one to own two DAPs then wait for DX50 to become stable, which shouldn't take long the rate iBasso are working on it.

Well, if it's for an attractive price you might pick one but I'm still pretty sure that both x3 and dx50 will be superior. The C3 just lacks the output power and even paired with a BH, the BH won't be powered properly and show what it really can do. The C3 is still a great little DAP but it does have pretty limited UI and power. Great for very easy to drive iems and headphones but throw in something more demanding and you'll be disappointed.

And yeah, I'll personally would wait to see how stable dx50 will get.

We have tried that cable and compared, it is not the chosen one.

This seller below makes them, and much cheaper (about $35.00 USD) He doesn't have them listed, send him a msg and mention my name,

Tell him you're interested in his pure silver interconnect, you can have the length adjusted or opt for right angle jacks.

Ok. Thanks for the thoughts H2O and kova4a. Guess I won't be losing much if I were to pick the C3 up for now and resell it later to fund the DX50 or X3. Anyway, was already considering the C3 before the iBasso and Fiio were launched. I'm pretty sure more impressions will comes in and will take this setup as a guideline before deciding on the iBasso and Fiio. Guess I need to hear for myself the sound sig of the C3/BH2 and digest the helpful information for a clearer picture with the impressions and thoughts posted here.

Haven't read this whole tread, just at the start. Good to see this old amp 2007 (In a new case) getting some love. I had this years ago, C&C Box, but have forgot the sound and power.
So my question, will this have enough power to drive a DT770 250 ohm, with authority or should I go right for the E12? I'd like to warm the DT's up a little. I know the C&C from memory is clean sounding and from the E12 reviews is seems it's a little warmer and has more power. You think the extra $30 for the E12 is worth it?
