I have good news ! I have Ibasso agreement to do a very limited runs of this “fan-edition” Amp8. This is a one time deal, and will not happen again! @Paul - iBasso

So, as the one who originated this EX Fan edition Amp8, I will list some details here, and also the conditions that we will have to accept

1/ The Pre-order period will start from now until 11/7/2019. The Shipping date is estimated to be around 11/20th. The Date is subjected to change, because Ibasso is very busy. Official date will be confirmed by Ibasso once the preorder is closed and finalized. But we are all so much into our Enthusiasm, so Ibasso agreed to make this 1 time deal for FAN-EDITION! We will have @icefalkon @edwardsean@EggofSound and other members to thanks as well.

Pre-order will end on 12:00 AM Eastern Standard Time of 11/08/2019. Any request and payment after this period will be canceled and refunded.

Any preorder placed without Details and especially forum screen name, will be canceled and refunded.

I reserve the rights to cancel your order under special circumstances. Any canceled orders will be refunded in full

I will only respond to Paid order inquiries, and through Forum Member PM. If you do not have a forum screen-name, please register and do so.

2/ The conditions of the Preorder are as follows:

*Only PayPal is accepted* Everyone can join this Program as the Amp8 will be shipped directly to you, Manufacturered And Ship By IBasso. The Pre-order is not REFUNDABLE as this is not something any typical Manufacturers would do. In order to keep the cost and the saving on the pricing down as much as we all could, from Ibasso to us all as consumers, we need to have a specific set of SOLD UNITS to make.

Therefore, please make sure that you are aware of what you are doing.

the Amp8 FanEdition will have the warranty by and from Ibasso. So you are completely Covered.

So, just in case you don’t want the Unit, but you are stuck with the pre-order, you can sell it back to other members. Otherwise, as I stated, No refund and no cancellation once the preorder and PayPal payment are received.

All payment can be made toward my address .Please include these following details IN YOUR PAYPAL Order Notes!

Full Name:
Address: <== This is your shipping address where the unit will be shipped to
Country:
Phone number:
Email address:
Forum NickName:

payment for Amp8EX Fan-Edition

*please note that the Detailed notes on your PayPal address will be your shipping address. I have seen more than a few with a PayPal shipping address different than the one being noted. If anyone need to have the shipping address corrected, please post up your Reservation # and the correcting address of which the item will be shipped to*

The price for each unit is $260 including PayPal fees and shipping to most countries (your typical shipping from Ibasso). Custom fees and imports are your own to take care for.

So now, the goods about Amp8EX hardware

All Tantalum capacitors are now upgraded to Kemet newest line up of KO series.

Panasonic ECHU upgrades

United Chemicon Electrolytic capacitor Upgrades + Nichicon UKA

Elna Silmic II Electrolytic capacitor Upgrades

Reminder: Amp8 is a fully discrete amp architecture designed with Transistors array that are Hand-matched. It was designed to handle very high current and voltage swings for portable player of DX150-DX200 (and it variants) and DX220, and any possible future Player from Ibasso that may be compatible toward this current generation of amp module designs.

*This Fan Edition is an EX modified module* So it was tuned in my experiences and references. I would advise that participants are aware that they are enjoying similar point of preferences as I do before proceeding to participate

Also, kindly appreciate toward @jude and the mods to allow this to happen just this one time.

Hi everyone,

Pretty new to this forum and do not usually logged in to post. Will be glad to interact with fellow audio enthusiasts on this poisonous hobby.

@Whitigir, thanks for taking time to make this project possible as I am really interested to try out the Amp8-EX. Joined in this group buy & payment sent :)

Cheers,
arcmagi

I own the DX200 and DX220 and I am interested but like others said I can only to pay by offical means. I can't send my money to an unknown PayPal adress. I have been scammed like that before.
I can tell you this, that @Whitigir is one of the most truthful, nice, and honorable people you'll meet on Head-fi.org. No joke. Ask the people here from all around the world who know him and they'll say the same thing dude.

Hope that helps.

Please make sure you read the first post in details. Ask any respectable related questions, and I will answer as soon as I could.

The list will be updated as soon as possible by me regarding people who is paid with detailed PayPal notes.

Hi Whitigir,
I am not familiar with soldering, then I would add AMP8EX to DX220 stock. Would that make sense or to get real benefits would it be much better to place it on a 220EX?
Second question: no issues in shipping that to Italy (apart customs, which will be a nightmare on my side)?
thanks

Shipping is directly to you from Ibasso. If you have had Product directly to you from Ibasso before, then it would be similar.

Just like any systems, a better amplifier will make it sound better. Specifically of your question, If you had an Dx220EX, yes, it would fully realize the potential of the Amp8EX.
