What is the difference between this dac and the D30?
You're not going to hear an audible difference between the D10 and D30.
D10 is USB powered, D30 needs separate power supply, different DAC chips in each. And the D10 is about $35 cheaper, and can also be used for an USB to SPDIF converter.
D30 measures a little better and uses external power (better for isolation from electrical distortion), but like most DACs you probably wouldn't hear a difference unless you were looking for it.
The D30 has more inputs (S/PDIF, Toslink).
