I know measurements do not directly get translated into audiophile pleasure. But this little device's SINAD is only 76 per Shenzhen Audio's website. To give you some perspectives, SDAC scores about 90, and for >= $100, you can easily get >= 100 in SINAD. If you do care about audio quality, please stay away from this because you are likely to abandon it down the road. On the other hand, if you are just a casual listener and care more about functions, this is an excellent device. Bluetooth is really a nice addon. Please understand your need and this product before joining this drop. Hope this helps.

True. Images on their website also suggest more pronounced bottom and top end roll-off in the FR. Still took the plunge, there is little with similar functionality at the price, plus the first version is scarse here in the EU. Would be great to have an original DAC-X6 to test both side-by-side, the amp components are the same but the DAC chip and board layout are different. Would be great to see it tested have measurements compared between the two.

The first is for (passive) speakers only. The second is the previous version of the X6... for headphones only.

Thank you, appreciate the info & your time. I was just curious. I already have the xDuoo XD-05 Plus with the upgraded Burson V5i Opamp & the 05BL Pro, (as well as the 1st xDuoo XD-05 & 05BL, because they came out with it like 4 months after I got the original of course! 🤷🏻‍♂️). However I'm still new to all this. My 1st DAC was the Radsone EarStudio ES100 MK1. My 1st headphones were Beats Studio 2 Wireless, but I switched to the Sony WH-1000XM3 last year (love those!). Last week on a whim I bought this https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0832HHR1J/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_i4MaFb68P6DGK believe it or not, darn thing sounds really really good! Noticeable difference, I was shocked considering the price of $12.99 with another 5% off coupon.

Well, then I wouldn’t know about the 1918. I do still love my Oppo.

I believe it's a single es9018k2m and instead of es9018. I bought mine on taobao though, still waiting for it to arrive.

That is the case indeed, at least on mine. IIRC the 9018 is an older 8 channel chip (predecessor to the 9028 and 9038), while the 9018k2m is a more recent low power stereo chip.

AptX is the only non-SBC codec supported? I guess that explains the price. Shame, it is tempting otherwise.

I believe aptX has come a long way since BT 5.0 with ever so high bit rates and better stability. Better codecs were welcome but couldn't make it, true... and sad!

Can't say that I notice a sound difference in mine between USB and BT when using my laptop. YMMV, naturally. From my experience pairing is quick and pretty stable at up to 5m, as long as line of sight is maintained to the source.

Looks like a neat gadget. Too bad it doesn't come with a remote control.

How about pause/play and up/down volume and skip track/replay track, that sort of thing. I see this device as useful in the living room connected to TV or CD player, game console, maybe a home theater PC. The pre-out RCA connectors on the back connected to active powered speakers or a soundbar. A remote would be very handy under circumstances like that. I don't have a headphone-only perspective when considering a device like this.

Everything you asked for is controlled on your source not the dac....best you go do some research on the interwebs me thinks.

Line level or pre-out on RCA's?

They're pre-outs. The knob controls both HP and rear RCA's volume, and the rear RCAs are active when the front 1/4" jack is free.
