Since this is the resurrection of a six-year-old model, and the company has changed hands... can we finally learn what DAC chip is used in the HDP? I know, I know... chips don't make the DAC and there are many many many other factors. But inquiring minds want to know :)
resurrection or old boxes found in a warehouse? Lol. Okay so it can be a decent pre-amp but with how resolving most people's gear is becoming I can't find this a worthwhile investment for the future especially with such a high headphone output impedance. 10 ohms is a huge deal. You're not going to enjoy 90 percent of IEMs on these, and headphones right now have a trend of being more and more efficient. These won't be suitable unless you like background hiss for headphones/iems under 80 ohms which excludes more than half of the headphones manufactured these days.
I had an amp with just 8 ohms output impedance and I took a hammer to it. Their implementation might be better here but still......
