Colorfly CDA M2

No exaggerations. Indeed a very MATURE SOUND PROFILE. Impeccable balance of musicality, coherence, clarity and depth. A
treat for outright enjoyment.
Must for Audio purists. Does not drain the pockets.
Thoroughly recommended.
Once again full credit to Team HPZ.

Striking the right balance between Nalaytical and Musical

I was always wanting to own a dongle dac/amp with a Cirrus Logic chip. The Colorfly CDA M2 (Second in the M series from Colorfly) came along and I had to grab it. The CS 43198 is a very good chip and you are going to see this in many many more dacs in 2024.

Build - Solid Aluminum Chassis with tactile buttons and led, so no complaints here. Just 1 usb c cable makes it tough for iphone users. Provision for a lightning cable would have been a optimum one.

Sound wise the 2 most important standouts are ;
1. Dynamics (Superb)
2. Power (The dual OP amps, one for each channel, is a no brainer). However in terms of "power to drive" this still does not come close to my favorite, the Hidizs S9 Pro.

Added features - It has some filters (built-in) which does not color the sound in any major way, still pretty nuetral. It also has a gain (low/high) mode for iems with low impedence. Lastly a pleasant surprise is the coaxial SPDIF output.

To summarize the CDA M2 is a solid performer for clean nuetral sound capable to drive power hungry devices .

Hey there, thank you for the great review and ratings! So delighted that you are loving your purchase. Hope you had a comfortable shopping experience. Cheers!
