Expert Verdict "Everyone has a phone these days and plenty are Android. Introduce them to a good quality sound from their jack-free smartphone if you can. It won’t break the bank."

"UP2 is lovely. It’s a smart answer to the search for a small and portable Bluetooth source. Size does not always matter, the UP2 is diminutive in size, yet its a compelling device for audiophiles."

INSTRUCTIONS

The DC01 can be plug-and-play on Android Smartphones and tablets with Android5.1 and above, without installing drivers or third-party APPs(due to the Android device’s system or hardware limitation, there may be a low compatibility issue with some smartphones or tables). On some Android devices, it may be necessary to manually turn on the OTG function in the system settings. 

  The DC01 uses a standard UAC 2.0 sound card shipset for plug-and-play on Mac and Win10 computers. For WinXP, Win7 and Win8 system, please download the driver . 

   There is no buit-in battery so the DC01 receives its power through the USB interface from the master device. The actual power consumption is related to the operation and the device system. Because DC01 has an audiophile DAC chip it is normal for the DC01 to get warm during use. 

*So far, we found that the DC01 has compatibility issues with the Samsung S9 and S10 smartphones. It works flawlessly with other Android smartphones. 

*The DC01 can be used with the UAC volume control APP. With our APP, you can use our 64-step hardware volume control.

"The iBasso DC01 will more-than-likely elevate the sound quality of a MacOS or Windows computer by bypassing its internal decoder/amplifier in favour its own audio wizardry."
