Perhaps the jury is still out whether the SMPS wall wart would be contaminating the local power pool or otherwise, even a relatively cheap LPS could help with avoiding such contamination?   Unlike 2Qute and future products from Chord, not all gears were designed with RF filtering and regulation in mind. Taking SMPS wall wart out of the entire food chain should be beneficial for those gears.
It would be wonderful if our mods could try DSD with Roland Mobile UA @ e-earphone    http://www.phileweb.com/review/article/201501/23/1509.html   http://www.head-fi.org/t/752076/299-roland-mobile-ua-usb-dac-amp-with-s1lki-1-bit-dsp   I haven't seen that here in Hong Kong so far.
It still wasn't done properly after 3 whopping years. Let's look forward to Android 6.X or something, LOL   http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=24614   At least Sony did write some codes that's closer to native support in order to "ignore" useless Android media player framework for true hi-rez output.   Actually Microsoft also didn't get it right for many years. Kernel streaming and WASAPI should be relatively new and most of us had to count on ASIO for...
 Well, actually they were two different orientations  The original PCB was like London Bridge is Falling Down  As long as we don't try to do anything silly intentionally, latest PCB should be theoretically unbreakable according to Rob. We could clearly see the difference in the orientation and it's the exact opposite when compared to the picture above  Basically we'll simply check that orientation before we purchase new ones, don't buy anything with the original PCB so...
Those design flaws were known issues as mentioned here http://www.head-fi.org/t/702787/chord-hugo/8730#post_11022789     
  It's fun to get this $60 Windows 8.1 tablet as the source, the best part is its full-sized USB 2.0 port   http://rcpmag.com/articles/2015/01/20/60-dollar-windows-81-tablet-review.aspx
$599 desktop version here   http://www.head-fi.org/t/752072/599-roland-super-ua-usb-dac-amp-with-s1lki-1-bit-dsp       http://www.roland.com/products/mobile_ua/ http://blog.rolandcorp.com.au/index.php/audiophiles-mobile-ua/ http://av.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/series/dal/20141020_672091.html   Direct DSD-to-analog output @ 1-bit could be interesting?     As low as 29,800 yen (250 bucks or so, depending on exchange rate) and 300 bucks off...

Not sure if this Android app were country specific and it's somewhat expensive IMHO   https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.radius.neplayer_ver2   They did list some features in English so hopefully there will be User Interface in English as well, no love for DSD via DoP so we have to encapsulate DSD manually with FLAC containers:   ・FLAC(〜24bit/〜192kHz) ・WAV(〜24bit/〜192kHz) ・WMA(〜16bit/〜44.1kHz) ・MP3 / AAC / HE-AAC / Ogg(〜24bit/〜192kHz)     Maybe...
Thankfully the pricing really is so much better than Gangnam Style, hats off to this Gentleman.
