I am very interested in this DAC, especially after watching the review by zreviews on youtube. I think I'm going to pass on purchasing this particular item, it seems everywhere I go everyone is complaining about the same issue which is the volume issue. Shame it looks like a nice unit.

It really is too bad. When it was working it was great... But then it.... Stopped working..
I bought this amp the last time it dropped. My amp works great. (Knock on wood) It sounds great with a small pair of Paradigm speakers.

I submitted a ticket on their website and they never responded. I gave them a call, and the guy said he'd call me back (I never heard back from them). So... I don't think they're too worried about it. lol.

I bought some excellent high end audiophile products from Teac back in the 70's and 80's. I had a reel to reel tape deck that worked flawlessly for 25 years and the company was always forward thinking about customer service . It's a shame they are just another faceless company now.
Just came here to say that I'm having the same volume issues that everyone else is having (volume randomly shoots to full blast, or jumps all over the place). Best just to avoid it unless you're able to replace the pointometer yourself.

Edit: Why have 9 people purchased this? It is a product that is known to be faulty, and it comes with no warranty.

Sorry should've clarified-headphones up to 300 ohms. I'd prefer a single unit over a Schiit Magni/Modi combo. Thanks.

The TEAC is more of a speaker amp than a headphone amp. Even the Shiit Fulla 2 would probably be better than these for headphones, but if you can afford it the Magni/Modi combo would be much better.
Does anyone know if this works with a 220V power source? Also, is there an option to just get them without the speakers?
My TEAC AI-101DA doesn't work. The left channel cuts out and distorts. I confirmed it with multiple sources. This is not the remote vs panel knob problem others complain about. The unit is just defective.
Has anyone figured out how to set the power on/off switch to just ON, without the Standby function enabled? I've tried pressing the "Setting" button but the amp still shuts off on its own. The instructions are not helpful.

You wish there was a way.
Will I able to use this as a stand alone DAC hooked up to another headphone amp?

Only if you're OK with using the headphone jack as an output...

If you use the headphone jack as an output, then you're not bypassing the amp. There is no preamp out.
Weak speaker amp. Great for headphones and powered monitors.

It always depends on your needs.
I prefer a weaker amp (also less expensive) for the size room and the needs I have.
I also like all the accessories and options this amp has, such as Bluetooth and the fact I can run, speakers and headphones.
Perfect for a small set @ work.

Yes, for a regular room it is a bit underpowered. But for near-field, or with high-efficiency speakers like the Klipsch models, it's plenty of juice. I have it powering a pair of Klipsch RP-160m's in near-field on this desktop,and an SVS PB-2000 sub and it works perfectly with enough output to melt your face off.
is the Dac powered by USB Or the wall plug?
