It's not an advertising mistake. Little Dot and Sword Yang designed the Q as an amp/DAC. This is not rocket science? I can understand trying to defend the product but facts are facts. It's an AMP/DAC. Not an Amp.
The P51 Mustang is an Amp
The P4 is an Amp
The Little Dot Mk II is an Amp
This version of the Q is a DAC/Amp
Just like the Nuforce Icon Mobile.
There are no ifs/buts about it.
I wasn't aware that this wasn't meant to be a commercial product, didn't realize it was solely meant to be a gift item never to be sold. I'm also greatly surprised that the first batch of users never had an issue with its DAC, which was honestly the worst DAC I have ever used. In that case it is a marketing issue, but it is also first and foremost an engineering issue.
As one of the first batch of users of its commercial version, I will say it was a lousy product. Aside from the non-sense DAC it had quality issues like the soldering and the upside down faceplate. I don't know if I'm just harder to please than the gift users but this was a product that was not fit to be released for consumers.
