Product Description
New from Topping, an industry leader in professional-grade audio equipment, the DX3 Pro LDAC Version 2 DAC/amp is a next-generation audio solution for your desk. Equipped with much of the same hardware that made the original DX3 Pro so popular—an XMOS XU208 USB chip with dual AK4493 DACs, an OPA1612 op amp, and an AK4118 receiver—this version adds LDAC connectivity for high-resolution listening over Bluetooth 5.0 Read More

Wait, this isn't the new DX3 Pro+ that was just announced? The new version is twice as powerful at $199... TOPPING DX3pro+ Bluetooth 5.0 LDAC ES9038Q2M DSD512 DAC NFCA Headphon (shenzhenaudio.com) Edit: also they also offer free shipping worldwide
(Edited)
By V2 do you mean DX3 Pro without the "+"? DX3 Pro+ is better in everyway (more than twice as good in certain aspects), so unless you can get the discontinued "V2" at a significant discount, you should get the DX3 Pro+. Here Drop is selling the V2 at a even higher cost (including shipping to my country) than the DX3 Pro+.

@All if you are considering getting this, better buy one soon because the AKM DAC chip factory has burned down, soon there will be major shortages.

I wonder the marketing departments reasoning for including a picture of the remote from the rear but not the front also?

Just to server as a warning to all future buyers. These devices. although are high quality goods, doesn't mean they do not have flaws. I lost all bluetooth functionality one day after a random "glitch" session on my DX3 pro, now don't get me wrong Topping actually was very polite and was kind to offer a free fix (as long as they discovered it wasn't user error), the only problem is that you have to pay for the shipping and then have to wait for the fix. I only lost the bluetooth option though, and the usb option is still going strong. So, overall, a good set!

This is a similar case that could happen to literally anything you ever buy online...

Yeah but it may be just me, but I see this happening to a lot of other users of this DAC/Amp often

Volume Control - Have I connected the DX3 to my Mac properly? I have connected my DX3 to my MacBook Pro with the USB cable. It works with now problems. However, I noticed that I can change the volume on the Mac and it changes the volume I hear. Surely if the signal is digital the volume on the Mac shouldn't impact on the DX3. I know that on my PC there were drivers that needed to be installed to make sure that the signal was passed through without being interfered with. I'm almost exclusively using Spotify. [Sorry for the novice question]
Volume control can be in the digital or analog domains. In the digital domain the bit depth of the signal is reduced, which in turns lowers the amplitude of the analog signal once converted. While digital volume on computer/laptops have gotten much better over the years it's still a good idea to max that out and use the downstream volume control in most scenarios. The term you are looking for is "bit-perfect" playback... not sure what the specific names are within the Mac OS/iOS world as I use primarily Windows and Android based machines. In windows you would disable all enhancements and give the DAC exclusive access to the app that is playing. Can't help ya there for mac but all of the quality MC software should be able to show you the signal path. In JRiver there is a menu that shows whether or not bit-perfect playback is happening.

Of course it will...the same way you can determine volume via your iphone while using Bluetooth connections.

Does this need to be paired with a Modi 3?

Nope, this unit has both a DAC and an amp, so it works as a standalone unit. Although you can still pair it with the Modi 3, using the Modi 3 as the DAC and the DX3 as the amp. Not sure why you'd need to do that though.

I see, thanks for letting me know. In the future i might use this as a DAC and upgrade to a more powerful amp.
