NEW Ibasso D42 Mamba! - Page 4

post #46 of 88

Mine's up for sale if anyone's interested: http://www.head-fi.org/t/673606/ibasso-d42-dac-amp

post #47 of 88

Received mine! It works plug and play with my Galaxy S4 (International version) without activate debugging mode and dead silent (No EMI) with stock Opamps.

 

It works great with my T-Peos H-200 and i dont consider it bass light. With the stock opamps it adds weight and body to the H-200 impactful bass..

 

Listen the Disclosure album its a p`leasure with them..

Is anyone able to compare the D42 to the Muse PD1+? Which is better?
post #49 of 88

I cant compare because its my first headphone amp, but this Ibasso D42 is great, i've changed the stock opamps for  2 OPA1611, and its perfect. The Ibasso customer service its great as well.

Whats the sound signature like with the stock opamps compared to the ones you rolled?

Well, the stock Opamp AD8066 is great, but with the others i have sound a bigger soudstage and overall better detail. I dosnt try other Amps this sounds great with my W4 and T-Peos...

How do you open it up to get to the opamps?  I'm assuming though the front, but does the volume knob have to be removed?

Yes,  by the front with a Torx screwdriver, the volume Knob stays with the front panel when you open it...

I own a D4. I am interested in how much better this sounds. I am using OPA1612 as opamp. The 42 seems to be more oriented at the OTG-market as well. Combined with an android device, this might be an excellent portable audio set-up.

 

I am still thinking about a dedicated player like DX100 and recently DX50 and all other similar devices in that price range to replace my Clip+ for on-the-go.

I wonder how this would sound with the DX50!
