very good
Very highly recommended DAC/Amp combo in r/headphones and measures very well. Only major drawback is that it doesn't have a 1/4" (6.35mm) headphone output, only 3.5mm.

Best option I purchased for my PC
Paired this with Drop's HD 6XX headphones and WOW what a difference. I did not realize that so much was missing from my music and game play!!!

AK4493 chip's performance is good according to its reputation. The sound is changed thick and full. I use HD 58X from drop and I think the combination is very good.

The Perfect All-In-One!
For years I've been looking for a good Headphone Dac/Amp to pair with my PS4. The Dx3 Pro serves as a perfect audio centerpiece to my "entertainment center". The remote was a vital component. I was only remotely interested in bluetooth--it really was not essential to my needs. BUT after streaming a few hi-res Qobuz tracks by way of Samsung S8>DX3>HD 650 I'm pretty much a convert.

Bought this in may and received this in July. Long wait but hearing the difference from what I was using before made it worthwhile.

Make sure to install the drivers
Before getting the DX3 I was using my 4XX with a KGUSS K3 —a budget DAC/Amp similar to the FX Audio DAC-X6— and I loved that setup. A couple of weeks ago I received the Topping unit, plugged it to my laptop via USB and immediately noticed the different sound signature. I could hear maybe a little more detail, but unfortunately the 4XX seemed to have lost their lush, powerful sound. I thought that the DX3 or my brain needed some burn-in, so I kept listening to my favourite albums over these past two weeks. I couldn't pinpoint what was wrong, but the 4XX didn't sound fun anymore, the magic was gone. I tried different filter and EQ settings to no avail. They even were fatiguing. Then I made a last-ditch attempt and installed the Topping drivers (http://www.tpdz.net/newsinfo/374859.html), even though I had read somewhere that they weren't really necessary except for specific use cases (also, the K3 didn't need any drivers to work fine). That was it. Upon rebooting I noticed right away that the sound I loved was back. On a side note, I have also just got the Koss Porta Pro X and I think they sound great with the DX3 Pro V2, despite the fact that its headphone output impedance is 10 ohms. TL;DR: make sure to install the drivers if you're using the USB input with Windows 10.

Nice all-in-one package!
I bought the DX3 Pro for native DSD playback and it does its job just fine. I really like the multiple input options that are available. Here is my setup with my Linux desktop:
  • USB input is for music only. The USB audio device is configured in direct hardware mode so the OS will not mix in sounds from other apps.
  • Optical is driven from the main motherboard audio. Optical mode is used for YouTube, steam games, etc.
  • Bluetooth is driven from my iPhone. I use it for streaming podcasts etc.
The Bluetooth functionally is a nice bonus. At first I didn’t think I would use it much. But it turned out to be really convenient to to keep my headphones plugged into one place and be able to switch between the phone and computer easily. I also purchase a JDS Labs Atom amp to go with this since many reviewers complained about the high output impedance of the headphone jack. But I ended up selling the Atom AMP because I could not tell the difference at all. The built-in amp works just fine with my HE-4xx. (Later I read that Planars are not affected by output impedance, so I guess that’s why.)

May​ I know how to "set default to output in optical?" Don't really understand this part. Thanks.
