    I'm running a FiiO X3 with my iBasso P4. Could I expect an noticeable improvement by upgrading to the D12 and using the digital out of the X3?
  2. CosmicHolyGhost
    You will get different SS..all dac and amp are then done by d12... But if this is what you want, you can also just get the dx50 and swap between two daps two battery lives, and without the need for carrying a stack...

    My apologies for the necro, but it's hard to find details on some of these ibasso dacs with references to compare to. Would any of you owners of the D12 be able to shed any light on how the DAC portion of the D12 sounds? I'm going to feed this into a PB2, and the only sourge gear references I have relevant to head fi would be the SS of a Fiio x3, e11 through various phones, ipod touch 4th gen stock. I'm currently trying to find a DAC to pair with the PB2, and am stuck between the DB2 and D12, and yes, I'll be listening in balanced. 

    I've read here that the D12 is "light", yet detailed. I've read the same of the DB2 compared to heavier amps, while at the same time more detailed statements calling it "dark", contradicting other subjective impressions.
    Any input would be appreciated [​IMG]

    I'll agree with light, but detailed.
    It's a better DAC than the FiiO E17 I used to own, but it also costs twice as much!
    The E17 sounded foggy by comparison.

    Try ordering a Silflex Optical cable with Toslink on one end and mini jack on the other end.

    Thanks for your reply , as you said ,i've been to their site "Silflex Optical cable" , their shorter cable is too long for me, and it is expensive too : 65 USD + shipping .

    They will build it for you to your specific needs. Great people too.

    OK , thanks very much , i'll see that .

    Yes they are expensive but the build quality is outstanding!
    I own a pair of their optical cables, one with mini jack and toslink, and one with Toslinks on both ends.

    Glad I can help. Good choice with the Precision Premium Cable. They are the best custom optical cable around. Got myself the premium cable few years ago.

    Thanks to you Er33 , i am waiting for the delivery of the D12 Anaconda but i wonder if the  DB2 Boomslang is superior in term of Sound Quality ? Autonomy ; ease of use , recharging ...... it cost  not so much more then the D12 , i still have the possibility to change for the DB2 now , if it is worth the upgrade . If someone can help me . Thanks in advance .
  14. ph58
    I have the answer , the DB2  have not a built in amp , i'st just a Dac  , the D12 have ( work as Dac Amp ) , so for me it is the D12 no doubt . Thanks .
  15. ph58
