I just grabbed a new one for $175. Impressed for the money. Designed in Germany. Instant sound upgrade from gaming laptop, which already sounded decent. This thing is a tiny solid aluminum brick and was packaged nicely in a sweet box. Best bang for your buck.

Only been using for 2 days. So far it's crispy(in a good way). All frequencies are well balanced, great lows, mids, highs. I am using Amazon HD out of an Asus gamer into the Lavaudio, rca out to Sony 2 channel receiver in Direct Sound mode. Wharfedale, Canton, Polk bookshelfs. Haven't tried any filters or other settings. Total sound difference from Asus dac. Sounded like someone threw a turbo on my system. I am going to get a Zen ac adapter and see what difference that is from using usb on laptop for power.

👍Great! Thank you I think for the $ it's a great deal. I'm using Macbook Pro 2019 as a transport to various DACs and AMPs. Mostly output to Hifiman Sundara or Meze Noir 99, balanced. Speaker output to Peachtree M24 powered monitors with an OSD Nero 8 Sub. Pioneer LX503 AMP and Paradigm Reference 5500 all around too. I like the chipset in the MII. I feel like it's a lot of bang for your buck. My main DAC/AMP SMSL M500 and IFI iDSD, IFI Hip DAC and ZEN DAC/ ZEN AMP. Also Schiit Magni 3 and Modi 3 with a Loki for tonality. It's just so nice I hate to pass it up. Bought a pre-owned Aune Tube and that thing is firing on all 8 cylinders! That MII reminds me ALOT Topping D50, which I do not own. Thanks so much dd!

I own a Topping D50s so it's pretty weird seeing this thing.

If it's the same thing and it looks like it is you will love it. Warning do not plug it into more power than it says. I know of 2 people that hooked up 12v by mistake and blew them both.

They're about the same price on Amazon. Audioscience review just did a review of it and it's DAC performance is on par with the Topping, but the headphone amp sucks (I guess it's actually another line out and not actually a headphone amp so it won't perform well with most headphones because of its resistance)
