You don't have to wait. See https://www.massdrop.com/buy/aune-x1s-32bit-384-dsd128-mini-dac/talk/2018817?utm_source=linkshare&referer=76YK5A

Don't work for me, my address for Massdrop is in Miami.
Been on the Tidal free trial, when I choose exclusive streaming and Passthrough MQA and the device defaults to 24bit/48kHz - does this mean that MQA is being passed through WASAPI direct to device (digital MQA audio transfer?)

Right, but jury is still out for mqa as a format...it is not lossless so it's questionable whether there is any benefit over flac. Also, some audiophiles have noted that software decoding of mqa has no noticeable difference to their ears. This is all the more concerning for mqa as a format.

I agree on MQA format debate.
Some people say its awesome, some people say worse. it comes down to user preference.

As far as what kind Gear to pick, I rather have hardware that can take full advantage. Passthrough that you are mentioning is suppose to done by hardware. Good luck with you finding right Dac for your need
So mines in Germany?
its been in Germany the last five days with no shipping updates. local nor dhl. final dest is AU. this happening with anyone else or just me?
cukumbermouth
Still the same? My little dot mkii is in the same situation:(
Heavyboxer
yeah so mine showed up yesterday.
it was in Germany for about 12 days.
Is anyone having trouble setting the M6 to play flac files with higher bitrate? I can only set mine to 16bit/48kHz on the mac. Running audirvana on a mac mini 10.10 yosemite

I'm sure my Mac mini'snusb ports are all USB2.0 And according to the site, Mac do not need to install extra drivers. I'm quite lost here.

Some Mac Mini's have USB 3.0 ports, especially those that come with Yosemite 10.10 installed. It would be worth double-checking if you haven't already.
Is it any good for DT990 600 Ohm cans?

600 Ohm cans will be pushing it beyond its range. If you are not in a hurry, wait for the Aune X1s (10th Annie Ed.) drop. You will be in a different league for spending $65 more.

Ended up getting a Schitt stack.
Works wonderful!
I have the Takstar Pro 82 that is only 32ohm, is the headphone 10 ohm output impedance going to cause any sort of problem? How about IEM by Audio Technica that is also 32ohm?
This Vs. Alientek D8 (XMOS) ?
D8 has much lower price and better design.

Edit : power output also the same, 32 ohm, 130 mW .
Great amp would highly recommend. Able to drive a wide variety of headphones including HD650 well. DAC is clear and amp is very clean, would compare to O2/ODAC in terms of sound. I was apprehensive of buttons before buying but actually quite like them along with the digital display so I know what volume works well with different sets. Easy to set-up in PC and has a number of inputs that are easy to switch between. For this price highly recommend.
I'm finding some mixed info in the comments, but for the Sennheiser 6XX, out of the three, what would you pick? The SMSL M6 DAC/Amp, the O2 DAC + O2 Amp stack, or the Schiit Modi 2 + Magni 3? I mean, I would honestly like to save some money, but if having the O2 stack or the Schiit stack is much better, then I guess I'll save up for that.

I bought schiit stack after long research.No regret.
Just saw a review of the M6 on YouTube. Long story short, You will need precise measurement equipment to find a difference between the DACs. Where You will find a difference is the amp. However, this should be sufficient to drive the HD6XX, even if not to earbleeding levels. IMHO, if You need more than 90 dB on the HD6XX, You chose the wrong headset and should have gone for a closed back ones.
