Best DAC in this price and Value for money

Review: Solid build quality. Almost all the tunings can be done through physical buttons on the DAC. Using Eddict player app. Coming to music.. Sounds great, bit warm. Just started exploring the DAC with different music genres. Trying with different IEMs, gog to know that good IEMs also plays role to better output. Just within in 24 hrs, received the DAC. Fabulous service by HPZ and courier partners. Thank you HPZ.

Hey Uma, thank you so much for the amazing feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.

Shanling UA4

Shanling over the years has built up a reputation and track record which is enviable. I can vouchsafe on this based on the audio gadgets which I have. This one UA4 just does not do justice in maintaining the image built up. Audio quality , contrary to the net reviews does not live up to the standards . Built quality appears to be very cheap and flimsy . But of course the company has managed to keep the price down . Anyway , a better deal was expected from Shanling.

Thank you for your honest review of the Shanling UA4. We apologize that the audio quality and build did not meet your expectations.
