    Could always use the regular Phone out from Amp 8 in the meantime :L3000:

    Not a true line out as there will be double-amping but it should still work. You might even like it more, who knows :ksc75smile:

    I am fairly certain the 4.4 acts as both line out and phone out, so amp8 would work perfect for you

    I've been doing that with the AMP4 for the last week since getting the MK424. It's quite nice but I want to hear what the TRUE sound of the MK424 since double amping will not let me experience that.

    I thought I might have read seething like this before but I'm not sure how that could be because there should be some option on the DX200 that enables me to select between treating the only Output on the amp module as HP or Line Out.

    I am going to see if I can get a 2.5 to 4.4 connector made locally here.

    Yea, I have been trying to find where I thought I had read that, but I think have been getting mixed up with other DAPs (like the n8)... the IBasso website doesn’t seem to give any indication you can use the 4.4 as line out.

    Same, had that option but when using desktop amps I'd rather use only the Dac section of the DX200 :L3000:

    Yep it's the N8 that has that feature, Amp 8 does not have a shared line out.

    I plan on buying Amp9 as soon as it becomes available. Will it not be useable until a firmware update is applied to DX200?

    I was told there will be a new firmware for DX200 soon to support AMP9......

    Does the DX200 support fast charging? If not, how long does it take to get to a full charge from empty?

    I recently bought the DX- 200 as an upgrade to my DX90 with the intention of using it standalone on my daily commute into my SE 846s (as opposed to the hassle of playing the DX 90 into my Hugo 2).

    Somewhat amusingly, because of the AMP changing capabilities, it started to make me think about rolling OpAmps and I have started to use my PB 2 again using the DX-200 as a source and thus not utilising the benefit of using the DX200 on it’s own.

    The comination of the two is sublime though. I have always loved the OP627 opamps and those combined with the 634 enhanced buffers provides a tube like warm sound and yet still taking the analytical Sabre DAC chip into account. The PB2 is a cool underrated portable amplifier. At home the combination with Senns HD600 is also very good.

    I nearly jumped for the AMP 1 Mk11 module but decided to wait for the release of the AMP 9 - real tube sound combo. Can’t wait to try it out when it becomes available AND the DX200 OS is upgraded to be able to play it.

    So far very happy with the DX 200. Time to sell my well used but trusty DX90?

    Is anyone else refreshing the website 80 times a day for the AMP 9?

    I did refresh ibasso website but not that many and am only ready with my CC once amp9 is available to order. :wink:
