I purchased this item, concluding from the details in the listing that it was DAC/Amp version. I received LX model, which does not include an amp. Receipt says "LX mod" on it. Not what I thought I was getting. I wanted a simple, portable DAC/amp for my computer so I could work from different locations around the house, outside, etc. The LX requires addition of an amp, which complicates the whole setup. *sad trombone*
I suspect that, given the nature of the bazaar, sales are final regardless of circumstances. However, if Massdrop happens to have a proper DACport (sans LX) just lying around gathering dust, I'm more than happy to swap. Is it too late to hope for a Christmas miracle?
DACPORT LX has an amp. just no volume knob. you use window to control the volume.
as long as you can plug your headphone in and make it sing, means it has an amp.
how would i know? i bought a Dacport LX from massdrop. yes, to me, my purchase is a dumb choice, dacport slim is smaller and cheaper.
Thanks -- yeah, I discovered the amp after the above focus. Still rather have the DACport because of the knob. With the LX on the Mac, I have to control the volume in the application (as opposed to the OS), unless I'm doing something wrong. But it's not as much of a concern, and it certainly works in a pinch. Cheers!
