Product Description

The CS4938 is just not a good enough chip in 2020. It was barely passable when the D30 first came out 4 years ago...

Why is there such a reluctance to provide rear pics of these units on Drop?

You can get this on Amazon for the same price- at least in Canada

I know it is slightly cheaper than E30. But I think the improvement of E30 over D30 is significant and you also get a functional remote. :) On the other hand, if budget is tight, D10, SMSL m100 or SDAC are all solid choices. D30 at this point is just not attractive to most.

Please, do not take me wrong, I appreciate all the Chinese manufacturers efforts, I use and like older FiiO players (not new ones), I like shanling M0 very much or xDuoo digital transport, even half baked Hidizs AP200. However, DACs and head phones (mostly) are not up to the European or US products (in the same price range) - DACs like Chord, CEntrance or iFi, phones from Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser or Grado, even cheapest like Beyerdynamic Soul Byrd sound much better than almost any ChiFi, as exception is Dunu (like DN2000j). After getting bunch of Chinese IEMs DACs I finally gave up trying and gave away most of that stuff. Yes, I tried Topping also but they lifeless and flat, lack excitement, went away to someone. Simplest CEntrance DACport HD beats them all. On the positive side - Chinese tube amps could be pretty good but I guess these are very mature technology:).

I sold my iFi gear and have the D90/A90 stack and couldn't be happier, to each his own, enjoy your distortion.

Don't buy these, they're bad devices.

That literally didn't explain anything. I've tried one of these before and I remember liking what I heard. What exactly are you talking about ?

Expand on that? I've been using a D30 for the better part of a year and it's been working great for me. Now, it's the first hardware dac I've ever used so I don't have much to compare it to but to say it's bad..?

I got an email today asking to share about my D30 and A30 that I bought from massdrop 2 years ago. Unfortunately the A30 has completely died a few months back. Sadly I can't recommend it due to this.

Updating this in case anyone happens to ever see it. I don't know why but the A30 is suddenly working again. Not sure what happened but I guess I can recommend it now?

The current price on amazon is $109. Sometimes amazon does drop the price.

Also Drop started charging tax. So 10$ from amazon for faster shipping (prime) and better return policies...

I just bought one on amazon since I want to see how it performs. Cost me $110. It was worth the extra five bucks to have the better return policy. Drop return policies are not real user friendly IMO.

Was $90 on Amazon a couple weeks ago. Direct from Amazon. I was hoping Drop would have it cheaper.

This really needs photos of the back. Usually you guys at Drop are better than this.

Your review was great! It's what encouraged me to get the D30 :)
