The black label is pretty inexpensive when you can find it. I really enjoy my signature but I found a new in box for less than $500 when I bought it.
Maybe a hipdac or the go blu.
Yeah I really like the iFi Burr-Brown sound with the Purplehearts and yeah the BL or Sig would be awesome but I’d like a cheaper option if possible as I’m well happy with the DX312 for most of my sets
Same for me, I wonder if they would ever release a cheaper portable like they did with the Air series.
Hhhhmmmm cheap and on the go with power fiio Q1 mk2 comes to mind and has a nice bass boost that warms things up a bit. It won’t be like the ifi but it can be found pretty cheap.
Andorama’s been pretty consistently having email deals on a few of the IFI portables ($200-300 new)
Dude - could just be a dead battery inside.
I’ve since swapped out my battery (the original one that came with it, was swelling).
It does NOT boot without a battery. Some requirement they’ve set with the device. I tried that way, since I wanted to use it directly cuz I didn’t want the battery to be charging all the time yada yada.
First try opening it and look for a battery swap. If you can DIY, you might even get any other battery to verify if it boots, then get the right battery. Save some money.
If you want, I can guide you on how to open it… A bit of a trick.
My 10 cents.
Yep battery on the way out and yeah I’ll take it apart and replace the battery if I can find one suitable…In the meantime I’m giving it a big 'ol charge to see if that’ll help I haven’t used it much this year since I got my DX312 as all my IEM’s are 4.4mm, then dumb ass here jumped on a set of PurpleHearts with it’s fitted 1/4” cable so busted out my old Micro…hoping a big charge will kick it’s ass into let’s party mode lol…we’ll see over the next day or so but thanks for your input buddy +
Good plans my man… Cheers!!!
Yaaaasss, that’s the best when a piece of equipment you think is dead come back to life.
Great to hear it’s found the Fountain of Youth! Haha let me know if those issues persist and I can get you in contact with ifi’s support team.
