Sorry total rookie question here, is this considered a headphone DAC/amp specifically or is it a DAC/Amp that happens to have a headphone out? I'm under the impression that there's a difference, and I'm looking for a headphone DAC/Amp that can push the T50RP's. If I'm totally off base here, please by all means correct my understanding :D
The UD-301 seems to be a combination of 3 things: a DAC, a headphone amp and a pre-amp. There are no analog inputs, so both the headphone amp and pre-amp will only take input from the built-in DAC. They can't be used independently with an external source.

It won't drive passive speakers directly, but the pre-amp output can drive either self-powered speakers or a power amp + passive speaker setup.

I'd say it's first and foremost a DAC, but how much effort/expense was directed towards either the headphone amp or pre-amp sections I don't know.

I'm not really familiar with the T50RPs, but I have a vague recollection that they're low impedance but need a lot of current. If that's correct then the UD-301's max. output power of 200 mW into 32 Ohm may not push the T50RPs quite as far as you'd like.
Perfect. Thanks for the response.
Wished I saw this earlier, these things are in the $650-700CDN here in Canada (we get screwed on pricing but did manage to find one with a pricing error at $550CDN). Even after the exchange difference, this price is pretty decent, in fact, great bang for the buck.

Setup I have here is a Raspberry Pi running Volumio, USB to the UD-301, variable output to the main inputs on a used Yamaha DSP-A1 (bypassing everything on the amp) with a pair of Focal 719s. Sound's much better than using the built in DAC on the A1 which is comparable to a 90's CD player.

The support for the teac (and other USB DACs) works out of the box with Volumio. Volumio images can be found here: https://volumio.org/
many thanks
you know, massdrop, the title should really say headphone amp
I've had mine for over a year and LOVE it.
Any chance the 501 ever ends up on here?
