Gets the job done for the price

Having used it for a week now I am satisfied with performance for the price. The build quality is quite good and I think it can be used as weapon in case of emergency(Jokes apart) the sound quality is up to the mark and it would be able to drive most of demanding headphone without any issue. It has all the possible connections including digital in that give the indication that you can use it as desktop amp but don’t get fooled by that. It’s quite good as portable DAC but better options are available for desktop DAC at cheaper price. Yes you can put the memory card in DAC and pay songs directly from that but you will have install software in your phone to do that and it’s bit finicky and connection to the phone gets dropped often. Another thing is you should avoid using this DAC on high gain as it becomes noticeably hot in 15-20 mins. Another thing I noticed that bit rate indicator LED sometime doesn’t show the correct colour and this happens only with iPhone and Apple Music. I am using it 4.4mm balanced out and getting anywhere from 5-7 hrs battery life. It does support quick change 3.0 so charging it bit fast. I think all the cons I have seen can be fixed with a firmware update. So if you are in market for portable DAC and in budget around 30-35K you can go for it. It’s a worth the money overall. One feedback headphone Zone staff you guys are doing quite a good job when it comes to delivery and all however please do not shoot the email for review as soon as product is delivered. Give us few days we would like to use the product and test it before giving the review. May ask for review after a week or so.
