    Topping D50S

    I guess measurement-wise it has better SINAD and Topping has corrected ESS IMD hump. I don't know whether these trans late into real world audible difference. I have not compared the two DACs. ASR members seem to be excited about D50S.

    Topping D50S

    I like the TP/AT stack very much. I guess IFI stack has tubey distortion and my ears read it as musical. Topping D50S is very detailed and transparent. I like them for Jazz and Ambient/chill music. It handles very complex passages very well. I would add IFI Itube 2 to the chain and see how it...

    Topping D50S

    I compared the IFI stack vs TPD50S + Atom. Used two foobar instances with volume matched setup. Hot swapped the same song and its possible with IFI IUSB 3.0 two outputs. IFI setup is more warm and Treble energy is less with slightly less resolution. Topping/Atom stack is more defined and...

    Powered and connected through iFi iUSB 3.0. USB audio is very transparent, clear and balanced! Very impressive micro-detail retrieval.

    Q5S has an issue with Galaxy S10+. However it works with new galaxy tab S6 beautifully. I use UAPP and Tidal flac/MQA sound so good with AM3D amp module.

    With your S10+ does it give clicks and pops? I use the same cable and was never been able to got it working with my S10+. It works fine with Samsung Tab S6!

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    I examined very carefully shinning a torch onto it. Those lines could be barely seen. However they are not visible to naked eyes. Said that I am very happy with the sound quality of the amp for its neutrality and totally black background. I suggested John, if he ever develops a premium case for...
