 Well, I'm glad they're not pretending to care.    Translation:  "We'll take your money until you cancel your subscription. Otherwise, we really don't care."
Meanwhile...   @stuartmc  I've read your report, above, and I have to say I'm very impressed by your energy and enthusiasm, but also by your credibility in reporting mixed results - both the good and the bad. The longer I'm at this, the less sure I am of my ability to report fact from fiction, as I've learned to doubt what I hear more than trust what I hear, but you really do strike me as truly having the ability to discern what you hear, accurately, and there's nothing...
LOLYou guys have some swag!

Yes.  The same USB Micro B jack that supports USB DACs can detect the presence of and support Android devices.    
 I still haven't heard the H10, but I love the HA-200 as a solution for the HD800, which is known to be bright,fatiguing, and even harsh with less than ideal amps. The OPPO HA-1's amp section, for example, sounds great with planar magnetic headphones (Audeze LCD-2 and PM-1), but I found it to be incompatible with the HD800.  The low negative-feedback design of the truly single-ended, Class A NuForce HA-200, on the other hand makes it an amp that I could live with, forever,...
