How does the Sabre 9018 DAC chip compare to the Sabre 9016 in the Dragonfly red?
Implementation is more important here
Well I'd be interested in an alternative to my Dragonfly red for gifts, as these are much more attractively priced. I know there is a monoprice equivalent which actually had the same PCB as the dragonfly and was wondering if this compares favorably to either one. Also what is the power draw on this? can it be used on IOS devices via the CCK?
I, too, am curious how this compares with the Monoprice DAC that seems to be based of the Dragonfly.
Monoprice one is equivalent to the dragonfly 1.2 right? If so, it's not mobile compatible (at least not on iOS).
the output impedance of this is too high for anything below 60 ohms
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing! If this can be used on iOS with the camera connection kit (CCK) without external power, that would be awesome!
