Just updated my laptop to Big Sur and MacBook doesn't see Topping DX7s anymore. Does anyone know how to fix it?

I'm new to DAC/AMP's so please excuse my ignorance. Even after researching online I am still not too sure about the functions of the various inputs and outputs, I was wondering is there an XLR microphone input in this dac amp? Can the AES input be used to power an XLR input microphone? I am considering using the new Shure MV7 and HD 6XX headphones along with this, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Both headphones are great and their difference is really negligible. The HD6XX is modeled on the HD650 and the HD58X is modeled on the HD660s. Actually, I'll give you a link to the video where Oluv compares these headphones with audio demos from his MiniDSP EARs measurement rig, so you can judge the sound signature by yourself and see whichever you like better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eVUw2MdhHk

Glad you got a device with a mic input (because this doesn’t). The HD 6XX is indeed an HD 650 with a shorter cable, dark navy enclosure, at a lower price point than normal. Compared to neutral or the HD 600, the HD 650 was specifically designed with a bit less treble (like, very high notes, vocals are unaffected) so that the listener (presumably a studio mixing technician/producer) could listen for 8 hours or so without listening fatigue, and still get great info for mixing. Since it’s a very articulate driver, it should benefit more from every DAC/amp upgrade (like this Topping vs a motherboard or laptop built-in components). The HD 58X Jubilee is not based on the HD 660S... it has a smaller, less articulate, less tightly matched pair of driver, with a different Sonic profile/tuning, though it does happen to have the same output impedance and a similar looking enclosure. Though it’s performance is below the HD 660S and HD 6XX, it is still a very high performer at the $180 price point, with a bit more of an “audiophile tuning” than something like an HD 599. The HD 58X has more midbass than any of the other HD 6-series headphones, and more treble than the HD 6xx, so as a crowd pleaser it sounds a bit more lively and dynamic. With its 150 Ω impedance compared to the HD 6XX’s 300 Ω impedance (and about equal sensitivity, most people don’t realize sensitivity is just as important), the HD 58X Jubilee is a bit easier to drive from various sources with weaker amps. Considering that you’re on the Topping DX7s page, you probably have heard from spec-sheet reviewers that the amp section of the DX7s has plenty of power for either headphone, which is certainly true. I would agree that “both are such great headphones” 😁 Based on the tuning, the HD 6XX would probably be nicer for monitoring podcast recordings and be well-rounded for listening to all music genres (they’ve been enjoyed for almost two decades for a reason, and still today have some of the best dynamic drivers physics allows), but be aware that some of the “air” at the upper end of the frequency spectrum (do you know the difference between fundamental notes and harmonics? These highs are mostly harmonics) is “relaxed” a bit and less energetic. If you’re coming from a more typical consumer headphone, though, you might prefer the modestly boosted bass and more lively treble of the HD 58X Jubilee. I have all four of the headphones mentioned, feel free to ask questions or suggest music for impressions 😃. I don’t think there’s a “wrong” choice between the two you mentioned 👍🏻

Got this used for a bit less than this, $280, I think? Not gonna pretend it does anything magical, but it drives my headphones and IEMs well, and outputs a good signal to my studio monitors which are really picky with ground loops. It even drives my 600 ohm DT 990 plenty loud with more than enough headroom single-ended. Haven't had experienced any issues with the output impedance, either - even with IEMs. I actually sold my JDS Labs Atom, because after going back and forth between them with everything I had, there wasn't a noticeable difference to justify keeping an extra box + cables on my desk. Plus, it's really convenient to use with the remote (sold separately, unfortunately...).

Disappointed. After waiting 2 weeks for the unit to arrive, it arrived DOA. Anyone else having an issue?

It doesn't come with one. You can buy it separately on Aliexpress. The pro model comes with it though. If you use it on your desktop, then I'd not bother. It's only necessary if you use the unit in your living room.

My Xperia I android phone cannot detect Topping DX7s. Anyone have this problem in here?  Other phone of mine, LG G6 could detect Topping DX7s, only in case of Connection-first and power on-after situation. While Topping is already running, LG G6 also cannot detect Topping DX7s.

Sounds like a compatibility issue. Not sure if this might help, but here's a snippet from a JDS Labs blog post: Support: Digital audio support with Android continues to improve. While only some Android devices support digital audio out of the box, nearly all Androids can connect to a DAC using USB Audio Player Pro. And if you’re adventurous, Cyanogenmod is known to enable streaming digital audio systemwide (all apps) for most devices. Tip: Even with the proper cable and support, Android sometimes needs a reboot. Make sure to turn your DAC on and connect it to your phone/tablet, then reboot Android. This will give Android a chance to initialize the DAC. https://blog.jdslabs.com/2014/01/how-to-connect-android-ipad-or-iphone-to-a-dac/

Thank you for great comments. I tried UAPP (actually I always listen with this) but failed. Make sure to turn your DAC on and connect it to your phone/tablet, then reboot Android. -> I have tried this methods, my LG G6 was connected successfully. The problem is my Xperia I phone. I will try cyanogenmod roms. Thanks!!

Anyone know if another Drop for this is coming anytime soon? If not any suggestions on something equivalent at Drop that I can get?

same price? or some wiggle room? if you don't need balanced connectors the THX One with the grace standard would be a good starting point

It's now near its lowest price ever. It was $325 previously and I don't think it ever went below that.

Sharing a bit of a situation I ran into. As we know, the DAC part of the unit doesn't include bluetooth like the DX7 Pro. The bluetooth is vital when your USB is occupied and the rest of the inputs aren't applicable (my Mac for example, doesn't have Toslink). I found a way to solve this issue, without having to pay the huge difference to the pro model, without skimping on bluetooth quality and without resorting to a bulky USB switch box. Ugreen has this bluetooth receiver, which uses the exact same Qualcomm chip (CSR8675) the pro model does, and it connects to the DAC via Toslink: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001089128179.html. It comes with free 4 cables and no power supply, you simply connect a micro USB cable and you are done. Edit: I'd say, get this (instead of Ugreen): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001677949000.html

What is the shipping date for this guy? Tomorrow? If so can i still place my order tomorrow or is this a limited number of units??
How often does this pop up here? I you can get it for $399 elsewhere but $50 is $50. Can any Canadians speak to whether you paid taxes when this landed?

Quite often, but to my surprise it never went back to its lowest price of $325. Still a great deal though.
