It is much smaller and lighter than I thought it to be. Looks better in person than pictures. Mine says the version is 3.1. Easy to setup, easy to operate. Two AAA batteries are needed for the remote, but not included. When using via Bluetooth, it makes static noise when I stop/resume/next track/... on my phone. After using it over 30min, the unit gets slightly warm. I wish it had an auto power feature. I'm using it with Klipsch RP-160M, and it produces pretty decent quality of sound and plenty of volume. I don't have any other amps to compare with at the moment. This setup replaced the sound bar for TV in my living room. I didn't tell latency.

I let it on for a few hours, and it became pretty warm. I better not keep it turned on 24x7. As to the headphone output, it can drive fine my 80-ohm Beyer DT770, but the sound quality is not so impressive. SDB(one of the EQ setting) helped, but still the headphone output of my phones (V20, S7) sounded much better.

Agree with your review. Drives my Andrew Jones bookshelf speakers very nicely, but headphone amp is lacking. Borderline unusable with the 6xx... My $40 2011 FiiO E7 does a better job, which is sad.

My AD18 gets only slightly warm, even after playing loud music for longer time. Maybe yours is defective? I use mine with Pioneer SP BS22 speakers (Andrew Jones design). They are very inefficient speakers but the sound is clean and punchy.
