Fainli context.
newbie here. i want to use this amp with my ipad camera usb connector to drive a high impedencd headphone. anyone tried that? possible?
I own Audio Technica MSR7 headphones and use them on my PC (Dell XPS 15 9560). From time to time I'm experiencing a short and loud spike in volume when continuing an audio or video playback and some loud popping noises. Will this dac/amp or any other dac/amp fix this issue?
What is a good budget dac/amp?
Does any one know if this will work with a raspi running kodi?
Does it have an unamped line out?

I think not as I connect my headphones to back and it seems to have same amp as front
Can this connect to a mobile phone android? Is this good for the hd650?

No - you need special program USB Audio Player Pro - but with this program I had several problems I think answer is still no

I'm not following you. I currently connect my headphones directly to the laptop. And that is when I'm getting the spikes in volume and occasional popping noises. I'm asking if a dac will resolve this issue or not?

Sorry for confusion. Disconnecting from this specific uDAC topic...
You wrote that your internal laptop DAC is not properly shilded from EMI which you hear. To resolve this issue you need DAC that has separate power source. Although USB powered DACs should also resolve this issues for you. Difference between external and USB power source is quality of sound. But if USB powered DAC is not broken by design you should hear literally silence and no obvious EMI - which is perfect for 99% of people not interested in Audiophile external power source quality.
Now back on uDAC topic ... this DAC will work with some headphones flawlessly and in case of some others like K550 you will eventually could experience some issues from time to time - but Im using mine on daily basis with K550 because price for quality is great and I don't mind issues :)
How does this pair with the PC37X?
No it doesn't. The Massdrop PC37X has 3.5mm cables..
Anyone know if this works on Nintendo switch?

Send me your Switch I wll tell ya bro ;D
The Switch has USB-C, and Type-C to Type-A dongles do work in handheld mode.
I wonder how much difference this would make with my m40x's. I am currently plugged into my LG monitor and there is a lot of distortion at certain frequencies (the audio jack on my tower is busted, and I am too lazy to take my computer apart to fix it). My headphones are easy to drive so I am not worried about that but how is the soundstage and imaging with this dac/amp? is it worth the money?
Anyone know if this would work with an Xbox One?
Anyone else experience driver issues on Windows 10? The unit would cut out from time to time, but on Windows 7 and Mac OSX it's perfectly fine no problems.

Any headphones? Which? Its not driver - Its electrostatic discharge that can destabilize uDAC 3. Try for example K550 I'm sure that this will do the job... I was unable to trigger this on mine K701. Besides of that I can live with this issue because quality of uDAC 3 is amazing for price ;) Connecting headphones to RCAs help a bit.

Yeah ANY headphones I've tried while plugged to windows 7 and OSX works perfectly fine, and I've tried a lot (since I tend to borrow co-workers headphones to sample different headphones lol), but on Windows 10 it just crap out after 5 minutes.

I wonder if there is a firmware upgrade or something lol.
