How well does this work with (medium-sized) floor speakers?
Upgrading from a Fiio E10k, first step into the big boys game
Do anyone have the MX3 and the schiit stack or o2/odac combo? Just wondering how does the headphone portion of it fair against those.

Thanks for the reply. Those are exactly the two setup im pondering about, I use DT770 and HD6XX and cambridge audio sx50 actually about 50/50 percent of the time. I feel like the reason i would want to get the schiit is that its more future proof as in I can upgrade different part and just get a speaker amp. However, I really would like a bluetooth input so I'm really torn apart. Just wondering if you could just give me some ideas to help decide.

I got my MX3 for $130, and my schiit stack for $275 shipped. If you're already running passive speakers, I think it'll be a cleaner setup to go with a MX3 as its a all in one solution and it has bluetooth already built in for less than half the price!
WIll this amp drive a 250 Ohm Headphone like the Beyerdynamic T90?
Received shipping notification this morning!
The SUB stays on when I am in headphone mode. Very inconvenient for nighttime listening. Can anyone else confirm if theirs does this? Is there a way to disable the sub in headphone mode or do I have to reach over and unplug the sub every time?

I could never get a reply from service or sales, they must not like me..
Having a problem: audio is popping/clicking and dropping out a lot. MX3 is connected via Toslink to the TV (Panasonic GT30). The display keeps changing back and forth from the volume setting to 48 kHz.

Signal path: uverse cable box hdmi to TV, TV Toslink to MX3, MX3 to Dayton Audio MK402 speakers via 16 awg speaker cable.

I know my Toslink cable and TV is good because the past few months it's been connected to speakers with built in amp+DAC via Toslink and sometimes to a sennheiser wireless headphone receiver via Toslink with no issues.

Edit: left the cable box, TV, and MX3 off for ~1 hour and now it's working normal. No idea why though. Previously I had unplugged and re-plugged the Toslink multiple times and power cycled everything multiple times. Hope it keeps working normally.

So... I've found out that my issue still happens but only when physically touching/using the volume knob on the amp. If I never physically touch it and use only the remote it works fine. What's up with that? Some kind of electrical short or improper grounding?
I'm deciding between the micca origen g2, smsl sd793-ii and this for the audio Technica ad700x. Any recommendations for which would be the best to go with? Pretty new to the audiophile scene. Thanks

I have 2 of the Micca Origen +'s and they are great performers. The Topping MX3 is more comparable to SMSL's AD18 both allow you to drive your headphones as well as a pair of passive speakers and offer BT connectivity. The SMSL AD18 even allows you to connect a powered subwoofer. If you have powered speakers the Origen G2 allows you to easily jump between them and your headphones. Not really that familiar with the SMSL SD793-II from a connectivity perspective but most of their stuff gets great reviews for sound quality. For reviews on a lot of this stuff check "Z Reviews" on YouTube.
Would this be sufficient to power some DIY 2-way bookshelf speakers running Vifa 6.5" woofers and Vifa 1" dome tweeters? I'm not looking for audiophile sound quality, but rather a small form factor so I can mount it behind my TV and get rid of the large Vector Research VR-5000 sitting below it.

I think the MX3 would be sufficient if your speaker design yields an efficiency of 88dB or higher at 1 meter for one watt of power

I used this with inefficient KEF R500 floorstanders and sometimes Ascend Acoustics Sierra RAAL bookshelves. Sounds heavenly and dynamic enough in my big living room.
Does anyone have this nd the ad18 to compare?

Veda really appreciate it. I'm assuming that as with everyone else, your headphone option still outputs to the subwoofer as well. It could be a relay order issue that might depend on the order of things turned on, as in turning the amp on and off after switching outputs.
-The NFC tag only connects.
-You have to switch the mode and it's auto-on and off in that mode, the signal side of the MX3 is always on, so if you connect BT and hit play it will play to nothing until you switch the source.
-BT reception is great.
