Ending up getting the arcam r dac wireless version..it works with my iphone with free app and with the free wireless dongle works from my pc over wifi..i have it plugged into my xbox in the bedroom(pc's downstairs) with my sennheiser headset and it goes through my Cambridge audio amp and wharfedale speakers for watching youtube catch up tv..it's much better than the other two dongles(dacmagic xs and dragonfly) by a long margin..not harsh sounding and the sound stage is much bigger with separation of instruments and you can hear things that you couldn't here before..peoples voices when they are talking on youtube are much more natural sounding..it's just a much better sound altogether..glad I got it now..this one definitely won't be going back! P.S my lcd3's and adl esprit are in the loft plugged into my MacBook pro with pro tools for making music..i have a Cambridge audio 851 amp and cd player in the living room with grado ps1000's and performance six speakers that I listen back to my recorded tracks with!
SO glad you dug the microStreamer! I find its far more engaging than the other USB dongle-typpe USB DAC/headphone amps.
IMO people - the microStreamer beat out the Audioengine D3, for me, in musicality, period.
It's more engaging, more emotively charged, and has better detail retrieval than the D3.
Now, the D3 is a great piece of kit, and could be, again IMO, Audioengine's best-sounding DAC/headphone amp,
but the microStreamer still reigns! I was not surprised.
It was like the D3 sounded terrific, until I listened to the microStreamer again
