Separate names with a comma.
can anyone remind me when is release date, ibasso is even more secretive than apple
they haven't confirmed the exact release date yet, but from what I have gathered so far the release will definitively be this year.
Christmas isn't that far away anymore, so... Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Let it Snow.
My bet about DAC: expect something (really good, and new) from AKM. Also, in the photo of PCB, you can see that it is single, not double.
Just saw this yesterday. Your quote made me think of it. And to keep on thread, Can't wait to hear Clapton on the new iBasso.
Some people just don't deserve high quality players
what would you hear ?
Don't want to too far of topic as we have a bit of fun to relieve the stress of waiting for more news of this player, but recently I've been listening to lots of Stars of the Lid as I'll be seeing them live at the weekend.
That sort of music really suffers from the streaming service quality problems on my Onkyo DP-X1.
I really hope that the DX200 is better ... for all our diverse musical tastes
In Onkyo DP-X1 people even can't replace the battery. It is not possible, and when it die, the DAP will die with it. But it sound's very good. I hope this won't be a problem for Ibasso !
I work in electronics repair shop.
In the case of onkio, it is the most important to open the device non-destructively. I was listening the DAP in the store about an hour. There are no screws, and to open it you will need to remove the screen. This is very bad. It has a terrible maintainability.
A few years ago, all the cell phone makers were deliberately making their chargers, and charging sockets, incompatible with each of their competitors.
It was crazy, because every time a person changed their phone, they needed a different charger, and had to throw away their old one.
Eventually, the European community got sick of the environmental damage all this unnecessary wastage was causing, and they banned it - now, all smartphones have to use common standards for their sockets (except Apple who seem to think they're special, with all their MFI-related selfishness).
I don't think it will be long before manufacturers around the world will be forced to make their products serviceable and their batteries replaceable. It is bad for the environment when products are manufactured that cannot be maintained with replaceable batteries. They will just go straight into landfill if recycling facilities are not available in the local area.
Fortunately for me, I quit caring what others think of my music tastes when I was fourteen. That was 34 years ago.
To be fair, I did give Stars of the Lid a go. Listened to the first two songs from their album "Nightmare Ending". It just about put me to sleep. Not my thing. Good thing I have some new Gov't Mule to wake me up.
Hope the DX200 works for you and me and everyone's diverse music. Like you said, Peridot.
@Raketen - Unfortunately, non-destructive designs are becoming rare, such that even repair shops are unable to effectively open many devices. Apparently, the type of adhesive used can be a particular problem.
@Steve80 - Thanks for your insights; I won't be buying the Onkyo!
I do hope the DX200's battery is serviceable, even if it's not user-accessible.
The DX200 will have easy access to the battery. The DX200 is not glued together.
We are progressing well on the DX200.
