Yeah, it's a beefy device, and it drains fast. Thankfully, I haven't had ui trouble with the Hibino version 8.03. If it only responds quick when user changes to another song, and a usb DAC function, I would be fully satisfied. If I put sonic quality above all else, it's just an amazing device. I'm quite impressed with the ES9018(8 channel non-mobile version) over the mobile chips or the -2M
I wonder if there is a miniature ES9018(8 channel non-mobile version) DAC only implementation size of the ODAC? I just got the Vorzuge pure ii amp which I think is phenomenal and pairs well with anything and is the most transparent I've heard, would work quite well portably combining a 9018 and with my Galaxy S4.
