- If you are looking for portable USB DAC, I suggest consider those that have volume control. Among them : Zorloo Zuperdac-S, SMSL X4 and Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS (expensive!). Bought the Zorloo and haven't stopped using it ever since I started using it. Downside is it can become hot a bit after prolonged use. -

I'm thinking of getting my first DAC and this seems convenient. I usually listen to music on my iPod Touch 6. Does anyone know if this works on iPod and Tin Audio T3? Thank you! For those who want to get this but haven't subscribed to Drop, get $10 off here: https://drop.com/?referer=94U5NE Cheers!

I would recommend the Dragonfly Red over this for any non-PC or non-full powered USB from a console (PS4 is low power so it doesn't work well without a powered hub). This draws more power and puts out more power/volume than the Dragonfly Red (tested at 50% on my laptop, almost too loud with efficient headphones [low ohms] with the D3) and tends to measure better according to others on the other details. The one thing is the Dragonfly Red will work better with portable devices, so get that if you're in need of an amp for a phone or portable device.

They'd need a low-power version for it. This draws more power than the Dragonfly Red so it outputs more as well, and likely has better measurements because of it. The trade-off is you need a full power USB 2.0 or better to get this working properly. Dragonfly needs a USB-C variant more than this does.

mediocre reviews, Dragon seems to be a better choice

It is actually the other way around, and I do own both units and have compared them extensively. Sonically, the D3 is more refined and better. Dragonfly is ok, but to my ears has a huge problem with sound becoming somewhat uncontrolled and piercing after about 80-85% volume increase (yes, it is needed at times, depending on source recording and headphones, or IEMs).

Will this work with audio-technica ATH-R70x? Or is there a better suggestion? Apogee groove?

Not really a good deal when you can be a refurb direct from the company for $20 less.

As is the case with most products on MassDrop. I always search for an item online before I buy it here. Often times the "drop" is a higher price than what it is listed for on sites like amazon, and if you buy it elsewhere you don't have to wait forever for shipment.

Looking to replace my ancient Fiio E10k Olympus, does anyone know if this would be at least on par or better than that? The specs look alright, but I'm not 100% sure. or should I look at a higher price range.
