Thread Starter 
Hi Head Fi er friends

Today I have time to try all my portable DAP, DAC and Smartphone as SOURCE for my home tube Amplifier .

I would like to share my personal opinion about portable DAP or DAC or Smart Phone as Source for home audio use .

My opinion :
Not always DAP or DAC or Smart Phone are very good in portable use , if we use at our home set up Sound Quality very good too. Sometimes the other way round as result from my experience today .

Please share your opinion here ,

Source : from left to right

DAP : AK 120 stock
DAC : IBasso DB 2 mod
Cyberlabs Class - dB 2.00 Vrms version
Venture Craft Go Dap DD 1 LE 12 Volt with op amp SM 627

Rudi, AK120 optical out (home) and phone out (portable) gets my vote to be the best.

I do not believe cellphones can sound good hehehe

AK 120 vs HDP R10

AK 120 headphone out / optical out + IBasso DB 2
HDP R10 line out / coaxial out + IBasso DB 2

HDP R10 SQ is better than AK 120

My IMO
