seems similar to fiio e12 alpen which is $100 less
Except this one has a built in DAC
Why oh why does this not have RCA outs! Grrrrr!
Okay, I'm going to assume the answer to my last question is a resounding "DUUUUUUH." Now a less stupid question has come to me since my last question was posted. How does this compare to the Focusrite Scarlett Solo that is also currently being dropped. Both of these DACs seem to fit my needs, I'm just wondering how much in excess I get by going for the higher priced item.
Anyone know if this works with an iPhone and the camera connection kit?
This seems obvious but I'm going to ask it anyways. The hole marked "input" on the front is microphone input, correct?
I don't have this model, but normally input on an DAC/Amp is for input from another DAC or sound card. It's there in case you just want to use the amp.
I see. And apparently I was wrong about the Focusrite. It must work in the exact opposite way of a DAC/Amp. Does anyone know of anything that works like a combination of the two, communicating both ways with the computer?
I'd also be interested to know how it compares to the O2/ODAC combo... want something to pair with the new AKGs I just got (thanks for pushing that through Massdrop!)
Photo of the rear? Does it have RCA pre-amp/variable audio out?
There doesn't appear to be anything more than power and usb connectors on the back.

Got a couple o' questions !

1) how does this stack against the cayin c5 in terms of the amp section? ( I know that the c5 is an amp only but am interested in the performance of the following features : bass boost / soundstage and clarity ) .

2) Against the O2 dac/amp

3) Is it compatible with android phones the likes of which include the xiaomi note 4g ?

Thanks for any answers in advance:)

but why would it have a rechargable battery then? Can the dac be used with android?
I think so, scroll down to the "Connecting to the audio device" tab. http://www.xduoo.com/xduoo/EnProductShow.asp?id=42

WM8740 DAC, gain switch makes it compatible with a large range of headphones, bass switch if that's to your liking. Solid build at an affordable price, not much to dislike.
