IBASSO INTRODUCES DC04 PRO, A WORTHY UPGRADE TO THE WIDELY POPULAR DC04

iBasso is a well-reputed brand in the industry. They are mainly known for their wide range of portable audio gears, including IEMs, USB DAC/AMPs, DAPs, etc. The DC04 was a "great" portable Balanced USB DAC & Amp that took the industry by storm, but the only caveat was that it only had a Balanced 4.4mm output. iBasso, with their all-new DC04PRO, has addressed that and has included a 3.5mm Single-Ended in addition to the 4.4mm Balanced output. The DC04, however, garnered high-level praise from the audiophile community. iBasso wanted to continue the spree and develop something "powerful," "durable," and "versatile," which gave birth to DC04PRO. The iBasso DC04PRO is a worthy upgrade and packs a punch with its extraordinary performing capabilities. With premium dual CS43131 DAC chips from Cirrus Logics, the DC04PRO brings flagship-level performance to your smartphones. For "clear" and "accurate" audio signal decoding, a high-performance KDS femtosecond crystal oscillator is incorporated into its design. The iBasso DC04PRO offers a high-quality experience by supporting high-resolution PCM and DSD signals. Perceive music differently with the brand-new iBasso DC04PRO!

DUAL CIRRUS LOGIC DAC CHIP AND HIGH-QUALITY COMPONENTS DELIVER EXCEPTIONAL SONIC PERFORMANCE

The Cirrus Logic CS43131 dual DAC chips, which are of the highest calibre and provide unmatched digital-to-analogue conversion, are found in the DC04PRO. With Master HiFi™ technology, the DAC from Cirrus Logic offers "amazing" performance and fantastic sound. With iBasso's extensive investment in research and development and well-selected parts, the DC04PRO is a "wonderful" and affordable standout USB DAC & Amp. iBasso DC04PRO promises ultimate high-resolution audio performance with its dual DAC arrangement supporting PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) up to 32bit/384kHz and Native DSD (Direct Stream Digital) up to 256x. iBasso has dual CS43131 DAC chips allowing the DC04PRO to achieve class-leading performance with ultra-low distortion and high SNR ratings. The CS43131 is a premium 32-Bit DAC supporting 32-Bit Hi-Res signal decoding. The DC04PRO hosts a KDS femtosecond oscillator, which reduces phase noise and provides a more accurate clock reference for the DAC. The DC04PRO brings pure and transparent music replay. The ultra-low noise LDO having a 100dB Power Supply Rejection Ratio ensures the power purity for the DAC chips. The result is exceptional sound quality with a clean and black background for the DC04PRO.

DUAL OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIERS FUSED WITH FPGA TECH DELIVER CLEAN AMPLIFICATION

The iBasso DC04PRO utilises dual RT6863 chips, creating a 4-way fully balanced amp featuring ultra-low distortion. With an output current of up to 100mA and working at a 10V voltage swing, the DC04PRO output reaches 280mW@32 Ohms. A team of engineers at iBasso wanted to make the DC04PRO unique in every aspect. For this reason, the DC04PRO houses an in-house developed FPGA algorithm. This FPGA tech has never been used in a dongle DAC before. Together with the KDS femtosecond oscillator, the jitter is well-controlled. This design aspect makes the sound reproduction more distortion-free and enhances the audio quality. With the well-designed analogue circuit, the DC04PRO renders your audio full-bodied with emotional impact. You can say goodbye to the thin and cold digital sound of smartphones!

LOWER POWER CONSUMPTION WITH NANOVOLT LEVEL NOISE FLOOR

The iBasso DC04PRO consumes less power and provides a power-saving mode option. When using normal mode balanced output, the power consumption is 650mW; the single-ended output will turn off the unused half of the AMP, lowering the power consumption to only 550mW. When the power saving mode is on, it turns off and bypasses the AMP section, with output directly from the DAC's internal AMP. In this mode, the power consumption is as low as 410mW. Compared with the power consumption of similar dongles, which can be as high as 700 to 800mW, the power consumption and heat generation of DC04PRO are lower, enhancing long-term listening. The quality of the power supply directly affects the sound quality in no small way. The iBasso DC04PRO utilises a synchronous DC-DC converter and low-noise, high-speed LDO, ensuring sufficient high-purity power for the dongle, bringing a dynamic and powerful sound to your music. It also has an unprecedented power supply for a Dongle DAC & Amp and factors out less power from your source or master device.

EYE-CATCHING LOOKS WITH CNC ALUMINUM CASE & TEMPERED GLASS PANELS WITH PLAY MODE INDICATOR

The iBasso DC04PRO case is made from a solid piece of CNC-machined aluminium alloy.

Using tempered glass panels, the DC04PRO is both aesthetically appealing and conveys the quality of the build. Grey and Blue colours are available to meet individual preferences. iBasso has included a 3.5mm Single-Ended and 4.4mm Pentaconn Balanced headphone output, which enables you to turn your smartphone into a Hi-Res audio player.

Music is good, but..

I'm using 1 Custom Junior IEM Balanced). No complaints regarding the sound, it's absolutely great. The lightning cable supplied was sub par. The cable length is way too short and the jack was heating up on the lightening port side. I belive that due to the short cable, the USB C port (Female end) got loose on the DAC. I've replaced it with a better Fiio lightening cable but it's still not secure and disconnects with movement (significant movement) so cannot carry it in my pocket anymore.

iBASSO - DC 04PRO

I have purchased it for my Android and IS mobiles and it works awesome but at higher volume. There is no volume indicator on it which is a bit uncomfortable. It also Obsolete my mobile Volume controller. Amplification wise it works very good with my KZ-ZAS IEM's but the Performance with my Focal Celestee is not to the mark. As a surprise i also received Lightning to TYPE C Connector with it which was not part of the Box while ordering. Headphone Zone delivered it the next day so great service by them. Overall i am satisfied with what i got in this price range. It is not working t the mark for Overhead hard to drive Headphones with impedance more than 25 ohms

Hey Rupesh, Thank you so much for the positive feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.

Great, Could be better

Great working DAC/AMP. Quality of life improvements can make this the best, like Missing iOS app or some indication of volume on the unit. Good quality cables included and had no problems setting it up on my FOLD 4 or iPhone.

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!
