Xlr is no balanced, just stereo. My Dx5 arived with malfunction. Oled display dosnt work, and whole device is useless.

At $250 this feels like a very tempting option. Anyone have a better recommendation in this price range ($200 - $300) for a DAC/AMP combo that has an XLR output for headphones?

Why do you need a remote when you're tethered to the amp with your headphone cable? You're gunna be near it if you're using it anyways. Why couldn't they just put everything you need on the amp?

the2armedmanYou can use it to play on speakers from rca/xlr, so you can change your music when you are your kitchen or when you're on the toilet xd If you use it for headphones, bluetooth is unnecessary, but you can use it in another way
the2armedmanI have a Dac/Amp behind my desk so I can't physically reach it without crawling under the desk so the remote is very useful for me mostly use it for speaker but some headphones come with very long cables lol

For information and comparison only, no argumentation, you can get Schitt Asgard (with DAC card) for $349. But no display or remote. Decisions, decisions.

antne_72And a Topping DX3 Pro+ is $199. I haven't seen any reviews that justify the price of the DX5 over the DX3. I haven’t heard the Asgard; I do have a Magnius/Modius stack that I love. But for 1/2 the price, the DX3 is hard to beat.

v0oz2uwgss2sFor the looks I guess. Also DX5 has balanced DAC output so you can add a balanced amp later. (The headphone XLR output is. It balanced)

TOPPING DX5 is blah in my opinion... Purchased it online and could not find anything goods about the way it sounds...

antne_72 It too late. Tonight is the third night. Thank you :)
If this didn't have MQA, I'd be interested. Sadly this absolute meme of tech that is demonstrably worse than just using normal lossless has license fees that have to get paid somehow, so it becomes part of the cost for us. Also good job having two of the same photo at slightly different zooms, but zero photos of the rear IO.

Isn't there a license fee for every piece of software installed in a device?

EdTheNerdhttps://www.tpdz.net/productinfo/986240.html Topping makes the dx5 lite for 350 and the only difference is mqa support

7 pictures of the device and not a single one showing the rear?
GokieKSor the dimensions. apparently not a single person at drop has any experience in advertising or looking at products on any other website, ever.
