There's an obvious improvement in soundstage and depth. I also think the bass boost on the 4G is perfect. I can turn it to level II and fill out the bass perfectly - much better than the DX50 EQ. 

 

I don't detect any hiss with my TF10s or BA200s. I leave the DX50 on LO gain and turn the 4G to gain level I.

Thanks alot musicheaven! :)

 

I've checked the links and today picked up something different:

 

http://www.audiominor.com/ - and there on ebay picked up Pure Copper, Cryoed, Mini-To-Mini Cable which costed me 45$ with the ship to Poland.

Already  ordered. Should be in ~ 2 weeks. Then i'll make some photos.

 

Also I would like to join teh Dual Lock team.. however i'm not sure which one pick up :

 

1.  http://www.ebay.pl/itm/3M-DUAL-LOCK-SJ4570-LOW-PROFILE-HEAVY-DUTY-VELCRO-STICKY-PADS-CLEAR-4-PACK-/390673227162?pt=UK_DIY_Material_Nails_Fixing_MJ&hash=item5af5f05d9a  - low profile

 

or

I listened to DX50 and Quickstep with ciems today with low gain on the amp. Worked brilliantly from volume point of view and didn't even weight me down too much:D

 

I'm still carrying them around without any kind of bundling, just IC connecting them. No rubberbands or dual-lock. Just a pocket...

 

Sound is really sweet. I'll keep carrying with me if my pocket size is just big enough.

Someone told me to be careful with this vendor but I believe it was mainly the IMods he was making. I am not sure about the ICs though. I don't like the connectors he is using but again that's just my taste. The only suggestion was actually from above second reference; PlusSoundAudio because I dealt with him for some cables, I know for a fact that he uses genuine connectors like the Viablue illustrated on the picture. Avoid the other lunashops references above Sorensiim has had bad experiences with them.

As far as the dual lock go for the low profile if you are going to refasten your devices many times else the heavy duty will lock it in place real tight.

Go for low profile, but it's cheaper just to buy a meter of it than 4 small patches :-)

Where is everyone getting the rubber/silicone bands to connect the amps? I got two with my BH2 and would like to add another couple to the collection. I was hoping to leave the two on my BH2 as a cushion, and get another to go around the DX50 to hold them together.

I got two from iBasso when I purchased my older amp and got two more from a friend but now I am on Dura Lock so the hell with the rubber bands! biggrin.gif

If you don't want yours anymore, I'll take them.

 

Maybe it is my own OCD, but I just cannot bring myself to adhere a sticky gummy tape to my shinny new toys. Beside, the bands provide non-slip protective feet to protect my equipment when set down. Anyways, I kinda like the looks of the bands. :wink_face:

Hahaha, I keep them just in case I get tired of the Lock but you should be able to get this on the net type amp rubber band, also just rubber band you might get lucky and get some at insanely low prices. wink.gif

I found this on eBay listing but I gotta to tell you, sounds expensive for two rubber bands;

O2 is a desktop Amp. How did you power with rechargeable battery?

O2 is a portable amp with 2x9V batteries that are recharged through that 14-20V connector you see there on the front ;)

I love my little Meier Quickstep, I really do. But I can't stop watching the FS forum to see if a Pico Power should pop up in the EU and Ibasso has promised that they'll email me the second they have the PB2 in stock again... 

 

It never ends. :rolleyes:

Same here, waiting for pico power or quickstep to pop up in the FS section. It's just curiosity for me and want to compare it to O2. I don't intend to get both amps brand new because it's too expensive compared to O2. I suppose it's difficult to top the O2 SQ-wise at the given price point.
