What's everyone's opinion on using this as a desktop DAC? I was looking at M8A, which uses a single ESS chip and would pretty much require me to buy a linear supply, ending up costing at least thrice as much as this one.
I do not care much about the amplification as I already have a magni 3. Could still use the amp with my IEMs when outside if I want to; though my axon 7 does a pretty good job, even with my pair of HE560s.
If anyone can share their insight on how an m8/m8a, or even a modi might be better than this one, I'd love to hear them.

I have a Modi2Uber. I'm not set up to A/B test the two DACs and the Modi remains hooked up to my stereo system, not at my desk. If you want something small and portable with DSD capability, then the IQ makes sense. If you don't care about that, then the Modi2Uber is a fine option.

Thanks @JMW1 . However, at this point, I am pretty much decided on the Topping NX4 DSD. Lucky for me. A drop opened up just today.
