RE: USB DAC + Headphone Amplifiers - List

I'm not sure where I got that info off the top of my head now. When I look around Google now I can only find one source mentioning it. It does say 24/96 but its not massively reliable. Strange that it doesn't say on the I basso site, I could have sworn it was on there.

I wrote to ibasso and they responded:

Hi,
Thank you for your email.
The D12's USB sample rate is 16/48.  The optical and coaxial is 24/96.
If you need 24/96 via USB, you can consider the D6.
If you need 24/192 via USB, you can consider the D7.
 
Sincerely

RE: USB DAC + Headphone Amplifiers - List

Hi, quadpatch.

I've just upgraded my Novo to the slee solo with the upgraded PSU1.

I am going to upgrade My Audio Technica M50's now also and was considering AKG Q701's.

What do you think?

Also if you remember I do enjoy My Bass Smile

Any input gladly appretiated.

The Q701 presentation is very different to the AT M50. Apart from being open back the AKG is very fast and crisp on the detail so I would be careful. You will need to try it. What kind of budget are you looking at and is it open back that you are looking for?

Quad, might want to note your list but the Vivid Technologies V1 guy has topped making them. Frown I've got one and enquired about new stock just the other day. Shame, great little machine.

only just discovered this thread. Amazing work quadpatch!

 

Has anyone tried the Centrance DACport? Or the Centrance DACmini?

RE: USB DAC + Headphone Amplifiers - List

Thanks Helmut80, glad you like it! I must go through and update this thing. I must know at least 10 more to put on here now. 

I used to own the DACport. To date it's the only DAC that I have sold. I couldn't get on with it because it leaned down the bass body too much for my liking. Ive heard some say that its a thing of CEntrance but I cannot confirm that. The detail on it was really good though. It was very neat but nowhere near as small as the Dragonfly. Another thing that I didnt like was that it got to very high temperatures after only a couple of minutes.
