Decent portable pwerhouse

This is a beautiful DAC. It opens up the possibilities for my IEMs. I own three high end IEMs with different sound signature. Their full potential is only being realized once they are plugged into FIIO Q3 MQA. Headphone Zone ticked all the boxes starting from purchase to delivery. Everything went super smooth. Thanks to Headphone Zone for providing us with best quality products.
