The one I bought was requested with the USA plug and I got the other one. It hardly gets any volume with my HI-FI Man headphones That I also purchased from Ass-Drop. My Chord Mojo works great with all my headphones. Customer service is not a concern for Drop. They will take your money fast enough though. It's true that many things I have purchased from Droop have been as advertised, but the xDuoo TA-035 is not one of them. Nice illuminated paper weight if that's what you are searching for.

I wasn't sure about this one as I had tested the older model and it was lacking npower for the headphones i use. The TA-10 on the other hand is a different beast, it can adequately drive a T50RP driver especially when using a 12ax7 tube.

Tube DAC/AMP? Very interesting. These tube amps are nice for the HD 6XX given the high impedance match, plus the fun factor of seeing the tubes light and glow :)

I ended up getting a SMSL SU-8 DAC for my computer and a SMSL THX SP200 for my headphone amplifier for both my computer and turntable.

TA-10 is boss but this might be a more tubey experience. TA-10 is hands down in brackets the "sweetest" DAC/Amp combo I have ever heard with the right tube of course.

The TA-03S uses a 12AU7 electric tube as a preamplifier and two 6C19 tubes to expand the current for a mellow timbre. Along with a powerful NIPPON CHEMI-CON capacitor, the DAC/amp is driven by a low-noise E-type transformer that’s specially designed to drive tube amplifiers. What utter gibberish. what is 'expand the current'? Does that mean there is more space between the electrons so they don't get crowded? The 'E-Type Transformer designed to drive tube amplifiers' but this is not a tube amplifier, its a preamp no? Most transformers are either toroid or E type. A toroid would probably have been better in such a small enclosure. And I don't understand what the magic of this capacitor is. Nearly every electronic device on earth has at least one capacitor. Usually several. Nippon Chemi make decent caps, but unless I am mistaken this is just a power supply cap. Not in the audio path.(transformer+capacitor, you are a few diodes away from a power supply) This is just slapping consumers in the face with terminology that sounds specific and fancy. But is essentially word salad.

Take descriptions with a pinch of salt ;) (because every product is made to sound super special and better to everything else)
