If anyone is interested, parting with the DX300 (link in sig, hope that's alright with TOS) I have accumulated too many DAPs lately and much less time to listen due to high workload so... rationalizing.

Alright family ! Presenting to you is Amp12W

“clarification” W mod stands for “Whitigir mod”. It is a simplified acoustic tuning based on my references of experiences and using HD800S as a mark of references.

Anyone who has adequate DIY skills should be able to realize the parts being used.

The target is to further the dynamic delivery, imaging, textures and staging from the already excellent stock Amp12 for the Dx300. Also slightly balanced out the mid and the warmth of bass a touches

No plan to EX as this is as good, simple, affordable as is
Cheers! Enjoy music !

Hello, @Whitigir,
First of all, thank you very much for your efforts related to enhancing quality of such a perfect DAP, like iBasso DX312. And moreover you share such ideas like Amp12W freely on a forum - it's cool and worthy of respect.

I am planning to implement Amp12W for myself - in general I have found all needed components, but right now I am not fully sure about one type of capacitors needed in it.
Please, look on attached photos of a capacitor - I will be very grateful for you if you can tell me is it a right capacitor for Amp12W or not. In general it fully fits for needed requirements (Nichicon SW 47uF 10V), but I mean exactly a letter and number on a side of it (B224 as you see). I noticed that on your photo the same capacitors has another label (N712). So, that's a reason why I am asking this - I am personally do not know what this label means and that's why I am not sure about it.

Thank you in advance for any reply!

I'm good with the mk2 personally I hated the mk1 but anything to get my friend into the DX300 cult.
I didn't like the 11 MK I at all either. It only got better with AMP 12, which I am quite happy with. But it's not perfect either. That's why I'm going to convert it to 12 W. Let's see how I like him then.

How about driving headphones with AMP12? Like say ZMF Verites, I've never had the AMP12 when I had my DX300 so I don't know how well it would drive them.

I know AMP12 is more known for Line Out use but would you personally use AMP12 by itself to drive full sized cans?

I don't have any ZMF and I know that they are high Z.
I am driving a lot of full sized headphones with great success.
Like HD660S , HD650, Elite, Empyrean, Liric , even some more difficult planars like Sundara and Deva.
Today I bought a cable to test with HD8XX.

I use mine with HD800S and I am very happy about that
