Excellent DAC/Amp for the price
Morph3us, 01.02.2019
I am really happy with this device, it has many positive features..

1. The sound quality is very good, clean and detailed.
2. It does not get very hot even after hours of use.
3. The finish of the unit is very good.
4. It has a front button to select if the sound goes to the RCA outputs or headphones.
5. Balanced XLR headphone connection.

There aren't any real negative aspects on this DAC/AMP but after trying to think to include negative points I came up with 2 minor ones..

1. The face of unit is a finger print magnet since it is high gloss sort of glass panel.

2. On certain windows versions, you need to have a particular windows update in order for the usb driver to work, prior to this update the driver was not in the digitally signed list so it won't be activated by windows.

Overall, in this price range, this DAC HP amp is one the best available. Totally recommended by me.
