No Apt-x? That raises serious questions about the end sound quality.
For an extra $70, get the Astekl & Kern XB10. Apt-x, Apt-x HD! (if you have one of the three phones so far that can transmit that format), single ended AND balanced output, and it's hardly any larger than a wristwatch. One of the bet investments I've made in hi-fi.
This SMSL (thanks Massdrop for bringing it to my attention) is an interesting produce, but ultimately I can't imagine it competing with the best. Come on SMSL, step yo game up!

It has a 2.5mm BALANCED out. You of course will need more amplification, but doesn't the balanced part outweigh pretty much any other advantages the SMSL might have?

Pretty sure it has aptx, as the product page is claiming it has the latest CSR bluetooth protocol.

That may be the case, but if so they really ought to state so unambiguously, rather than pussyfooting around with weird hints and insinuations
