Dragonfly Red is the best of the three. But the Hifime Sabre 9018 DAC is notably better than the DF Red in sound quality and output power, at less than half the price. The only advantage the DF Red has vs the Hifime is asynchronous vs. adaptive USB. But that isn't a reason to choose the red over the Hifime unless you are having stability issues with the adaptive USB from your device. And, I don't believe the DF Red has a firmware issue with volume as someone mentioned. Rather, your source device & App need to be able to access the HARDWARE volume control on the DF Red. Otherwise, it will be stuck at half (or somewhere around there). On many smartphones, this is an issue. But on Android, if you get the USB Audio Player Pro app, which has hardware volume control and switchable bit-perfect output (bypassing the Android OS), and you go into the app's settings to configure the app volume control to control the hardware volume instead of software volume, this is no problem at all.
