How portable do you need it to be? I'm a big fan of the Fiio Q1 Mark II for ultra-portable over the dragonfly, as the Q1 offers more power. I guess you don't need much for IEMs, but this is a DAC/Amp, the Q1 is a DAC/Amp, the Dragonfly seems like just a dac replacement and relies on whatever it's plugged into to provide amplification.

I use it at my desktop with IEM's at work so nothing to fancy. Massdrop Plus and Nuforce EDC 3. Would the 4.7ohm impedance on this mess with my 15ish ohm impedance IEMS?
Thanks

I can't imagine it would be a problem. I've used the MD/Mee PXs with both the Q1 Mark II and the F-Audio DAC-X6 and neither of those sounded weird or off with IEMs as far as I could hear.
But someone else may have more personal experience with this amp/dac and it's noise floor.

Dragonfly is a MQARenderer so you can get most out of it from Tidal MASTERs tracks. It will drive headphones up to a 100 ohm. Very good dac for phones.

do not get dragofly black. and this uDac-5 is not good for iems - output impedance is 5 Ohm per spec. Get Speaka USB DAC/Amp. In USA search amazon SKU B01FQHBDI4 - 33 for a piece.
