    Pros - Small Compact,Well buit for price,well balanced,cheap not much on the market can touch it at this price point !!
    Cons - usb only, 3.5 mm output only ((no RCA's,could of been a higher spec dac in a small form factor (similar to Dragonfly) but has max res only @ 48KHz
    I have this Dac restricted to 48 KHz res designed primairly for Android devices for £19. I tested with a Macbook Pro (instantly recognised) and JDS Labs Cmoy using pair of Koss KSC75 It's definately a stocking filler.Compared to the Fiio D3 original version utalizing the wolfson chip now out of production it can't come as near the level of seperation and detail of the D3 but this is mainly due to optical & spec differences for it's size and price biggest bang for you buck....you simply can't go wrong with a Sabre chip inside ! 
    I also use it it with tiny moded pair of Sony Ericsson Speakers MPS- 70 brings out oodles of detail nice portable dac/speaker setup from mac or tablet.
