Thank you! Appreciate it.
Nice review bro!
How does it compare to DX150 in terms of sound quality? (with AMP6 or 8)
Thank you! The DX150 is more resolving and it boasts a higher level of details retrieval with better dynamics.
Thanks for the review!
Have you tried the ibasso it04 with this dac?
Thank you. I have tried the IT04 with the xDSD.
