    Not totally OT since its just to say I've listened this album countless times so I know it every well, every nuance... and never before like on DX229 ... :L3000:
    If you don’t know it please give it a try, one of my favorite albums ever ! Period. Enjoying the MUSIC! Period.

    Ooh, ooh! But its raining.


    Ok...if i must.


    iBasso and iBasso!


    Symbio tips too

    This is what i got from pure DAP mango OS mode.
    This is also the 3rd monitored chart, 1 x Android, 2 x mango pure dap Can this be better? Anyway, I'm fine with it. Its got quick charge after all...

    hey I just notice the amp 8 3.5mm pro .I was wondering if you can you a pro plug with se devices also?
  6. Christoph
    From my knowledge, the offifical iBasso AMP8 is only available with 4.4 balanced output.
    I googled "amp8 3.5mm pro" and found a shop (penonaudio)with this description, but it think its a mixup with the AMP7 description which has a 3.5mm output.
    Or from which source have got this 3.5mm info?
  7. Mahalarp
    Absolutely power is lesser compared when I used with previous Amp8. However sound signature is more lively and even more musical on Fourte :)

    Can. But first you need to find 3.5 pro first since it is different from 3.5 hifiman hm901

    3.5 pro version is real. But mostly sold in China, not globally.

    iBasso AMP8 3.5pro 3.5mm Balanced Headphone Amplifier Card for iBasso DX150 DX200


    High voltage and high current

    Rich and wide

    The AMP8 adopts a newly designed discrete component line, and has the characteristics of high voltage and high current output. After long-term intensive research and development, dozens of revisions have been made, and finally THD+N is achieved to -113dB, which makes rational use of the large driving force of the transistor. Also ensure that the output enough HiFi.

    2700mA power, like a generator

    The output selects a power transistor with a current up to 2700mA, which provides great current output capability, effectively guarantees the restoration of instantaneous large dynamic signals, and drives various high-current headphones, which is easy and natural. Compared with AMP4s, the high-frequency is more clear and fierce, and the high-frequency is elegant and flexible, while the low-frequency is solid.

    3.5mm Balanced pro

    Maximum output level:6.2Vrms

    Frequency range:15Hz-45KHz/-0.3dB

    THD+N:0.00023%, -113dB(Withoutload@2.5Vrms)


    Noise ratio:125db

    Dynamic Range:125db


    When using OPAMPs to develop an amplifier, it is almost impossible to achieve high voltage output and high current output, especially, on a portable devices. Some engineers have used the TPA6120 in the buffer stage to achieve 750mA output current. However, the TPA6120 has a 10ohm output impedance, which isn’t ideal for low impedance IEMs or headphones. So, we decided to use discrete components which are usually used in desktop amplifiers to develop the AMP7 but the development process is much more difficult when using discrete components. After long development period and with our final design, we present the AMP7 card that has both high voltage and high current output and at the same time maintains low output impedance with extremely good measurements. AMP7 complements the premium performance of the DX150 and the DX200, giving you even more choices when playing the music you enjoy.


    There used to a picture advert somewhere posted. But i can’t find it

    Interesting, I was not aware of this, found it now also with a photo. Its only a 3.5 SE connection without the 4.4 balanced output.

    To have both connection options 3.5 SE AND 4.4 balanced in one AMP8 module would be perfect,
    but i assume there is not enough space inside to build this together in one module.

    OK...I want those orange tips! LOL

    I'm gonna have to email Paul. lol

    At our shows here in the US all we get is the black silicon tips...those look NICE!

    Symbio Mandarine tips

    I like the Symbio W Peel

    One guy in the Solaris/Andromeda came up with the idea to remove the foam. I tried it and liked it

    I had been in communication with the Symbio Mandarine guy for a while and suggested he do it as a product and the ‘Peel’ moniker

    Works a treat with some IEMs.

    -He has an online store / website

    Doesn't just works a treat, it looks like a treat :D Yeah, these hybrid eartips are sold on-line. I assume you saw it at Portafest cause japanese distributors carrying it now?

    Yea it's legit. Plussound offers 3.5 balanced on there site my question is could you plug a 3.5 pro into a SE device ( so I can use with dx200 and my phone or nitendo switch )
    Its strange I can find much info on 3.5 pro.
  15. Whitigir
    Lol, so the tips is peeled like orange peel , that literally make it peeled tips ? Interesting. Those tips can make a fortune
