Accidentally plugged in the Topping D50 to a power supply greater than 5V, and apparently that burns out the device. After talking to Topping customer service, that is not covered under warranty.

Sorry just starting to build more momentum in the audiophile world, currently I have a dedicated server PC for all my closed circuit NVR/security, PLEX server, and personal cloud in my living room near my audio station. Using a Schiit Modi 2 USB DAC that seems similar to this and it sounds pretty good. It has a weird quieting bug where it intermittently dampens audio (noticable but barely) every so often. I have it going as PC box -> to Modi 2 DAC via USB -> to Denon Receiver via RCA -> Klipsch RF-28 (pair) + RP450 (center) + R14 (pair surrounds) Would this unit be a substantial upgrade over the Schiit Modi 2, or just likely up to user preference? Planning to use DAC as network streaming ideally...Thanks in advance ya'll

This would be a massive upgrade from a Modi 2 just on specifications of each device. Though there is something called the D50S (the upgraded version) that is coming out sometimes soon hopefully, and it has (on top of slightly better performance) Bluetooth input and a remote control on top of being already great DAC.

Just thought I'd let everyone know this is currently available from a Topping authorized reseller on Amazon at 199 with 10% off and free shipping, so it's the exact same price as here, but with two day delivery. If you have an Amazon Prime card, the 5% cash back on that gives them the lowest purchase price.

Thanks, I hadn't seen any announcement about the upcoming D50s. Per Audio Science Review, the new one will have Bluetooth and measures similarly (in terms of human hearing). I was not able to find a release date, though. Any insiders know if the D50s is going to be on Drop?

USB works with PC, but no joy with iOS. I purchased, returned, replaced, and refunded the second unit because it failed to work with iPhone, iPad, and iOS. Hooked it up to PC and it sounded amazing. Unfortunatly, I bought this to work with iOS. I have heard others have been luckier than me, but it's not worth the trouble for me any longer.

Has anyone had the chance to test the Topping D50 against the Oppo 105 / 205 DACs? I am using an Oppomod modified Oppo 105D at the moment and have auditioned various other sources, some far more expensive. Have yet to find anything that to my ears sounds better than the Oppo, including the Chord Qutest, which I have to play with at the moment.

Hi, I have the basic Oppo 105D and Topping D50. IMHO, I like the D50 more than the oppo. Oppo sounds a bit bright for me IMHO. Here is one of my uploaded video in youtube, thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0ja0Cviu5k

I had the D50 for a few days before returning it. Likeable little DAC, sounds warm and relaxed but I found it a bit lacking in detail in the highs (some call this brightness) and the sound stage appeared more shallow by comparison to the Oppo 105. Again, speaking from personal experience.

Received mine today and it's dead on arrival. Won't power on via USB. Consider me another D50 victim. Very unhappy.

Massdrop customer service was excellent. They were quick and are sending me a replacement unit. Topping just said the unit is defective, talk to Massdrop for a DOA warranty.

Oh, thank you for your reply. It is nice to see you weren’t left with defected DAC by MD. Enjoy with your new unit.

Sorry noob question, why does it need two ES9038Q2M chips instead of one?

I think it helps isolate the left and right signals. Like the left channel doesn't always play the same sound as the right (stereo). Sometimes putting the two signals inside the same chip (if it's dual channel) you'll see that one signal bleeds into the other. The effect often isn't much with a good design but certainly seen in testing. It might also allow for better high frequency signal filtering if both outputs of the each ES9038Q2M is used, but that's a little beyond my understanding.

Yep, it's called channel separation
