I just bought the fiio e18 and can still return it, any idea how this stacks up?
This is 10 times better than Fiio. True audiophile quality at an entry level price
I find your comment quite exaggerating. What exactly makes this 10x better? Fiio uses PCM 1795 chip with decent components. The AKM 4490 chip in this dac is equally good. If the components used in Xduoo is good it might sound 5% better. Only two things in Xduoo interests me, first the opamp rolling and second inputs and outputs.
yeah, that's exactly why I bought it. It's cheap for what you can do with it. Build is solid. Sound is very good at this price point. I'd also give the point to the Xduoo, Somehow I don't like the FiiO sound. BUT it's half the price
-> get this if you want a good and more or less portable multi-talent with a good price/performance.
ad opamps: I'd really like to change the amp to a burson v5, but don't want to change the battery. You guys have any suggestions for opamps coming close to the burson, with a better form factor?
You should look at the burson V5i it was released recently and is a small form factor which could quite possibly fit
For almost the same price Centrance dacport HD with the same AKM chip is also an alternative.
Centrance DAC doesn't have battery, which requires power from USB cable. I don't like this.
