My subjective impressions
Mid-bass is very tight with being prominent in the track.
High extensions are very good.
Sub-bass has a very good extension.
Vocals are very expressive and forward in the track.
Violin and piano tracks have attacked without being too bright.
Instrument separation is very good and very prominent in the track.
Sparkle and airy highs without having any kind of sibilance.
Silent background noise like the hiss is not prominent.
Great for reference kind of listening or production.
Native DSD 128 support.
Budget-friendly DAC with massive sound output.
RGB light indicator for sound formats that are being played.
Lows decay are very good.
Natural highs extension might be boring for some.
The volume level is a bit confusing.
Instrument separation needs a bit of layering.
Soundstage needs more space.
Sub-bass can be flat in certain tracks.
Bass roll-off at early seconds of the prominent track.
Vocals sound a bit artificial.
Bass decay is very short.
can be flat sounding depending on the track.
Musical notes are a bit delayed.
Honestly, this USB DAC is a bang for the buck because of its sound output, and for a budget, you can decode MQA files and this USB DAC has a place for my liking.
I would like to thank sir Loo Levi for letting me experience his unit of this USB DAC.
My Personal Sound preference:
As a former musician, I want the instruments to be very clean and precise in general terms, I am a mid-centric guy with being forwarded in the track without being too bright and too boomy or bloated.
