Not just about the power, it’s the way it’s delivered also the dac would be an upgrade on a dx300 from your zx300
Yes, my DAP is getting old and I am sure a newer, nicer model would have a better DAC.
another very happy user of DX311mk2 here. just wanted to say that the pairing with ThieAudio Oracle and UM MEST MKII is simply fabolous
really a great DAP even when compared to desktop solution.
Amp12 card sound impression update…I still stand by my original assessment…“Treble is smother, Mids are pushed forward and Bass seems similar maybe giving up a bit of speed for texture”…But maybe the biggest difference for me now using the OG Andro’s to back this up is although the sound stage width (never big with iem’s) is similar, detail and separation is the biggest difference between the 11 MKII from 12 imho…Both instruments and vocals have a more defined space within tracks, they seem more (and I hate this word) organic too or natural if you like…
Which means to music me I prefer it lol
Edited…All on D5 NOS setting.
Good Evening… Anyone selling DX300?
You are at much better luck of finding a second hand DX300 on Head-Fi. Try dropping a message on the Head-Fi DX300 thread or putting up a listing that you are looking to buy a DX300
Anyone had the AMP12EXN upgrade from NP Audio…curious about your thoughts regarding any overall sound benefits?..
Well that just brought the DX320 into sights lol.
I’ll get the AMP14 for my DX300 why the hell the AMP13 was se only
Probably because they can sell more units. Well RS6 or go all out lol.
The Cayin N8ii is another streamable high end Nutube option
I know been drooling over that one and the RS8 but $3k+ is tough. My idea is too replace my D90 with something interesting and portable. The my only 2 large pieces will be my 3xp and Darkvoice.
I use the AMP13 in my DX300.
With Wifi enabled there is alot of audible noise. I wouldn’t call it streamable anymore.
Shocks to the DX313 (taping it, fast walking, putting it down on an hard surface) produces a ringing sound.
From the looks of it I would assume it will be the same on the AMP14.
So if you are using streaming services without downloading your music before listening I wouldn’t recommend the AMP13/14.
But soundwise I really like the AMP13.
So has anyone experienced the same ‘ringing’ issue with Amp14?
Anyone got or heard a NP Audio AMP12EXN-S with the 4 x ADA4625-1 opamp upgrade?..would be cool to have some feedback (slim chance I know )
