Upgrading from an Ibasso P3+

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've had the P3+ for several years now and have been relatively happy with it.  I'd like to get something with a little more depth and low end punch for use with my ipod.  I'd like to keep it under $300.  Any suggestions?

I'm still using mine, awesome amp and very portable with the aaa batteries.

Tried playing around with new chip sets?

I have played around with the opamps. I did not really hear any big differences. Also i am not sure why but with most combinations i get a lot of noise and ground loops.

I'm late to the party - sorry about that.

 

I have really enjoyed my P3+, mostly with my TF10s and SR-80s.  When I want to step it up, however, I use an RSA Hornet.  The iBasso is fantastic, but the Hornet is better in every way - bigger soundstage, quieter background, better separation of instruments, better bass control - and the Hornet can drive my AKG 702s.

 

There are a number of very good amps in the $300 price zip code but I'd urge you to try one of Ray's - used if you need to stay under $300.
