    Yep, but there were some complains about inserting microSD card right... which caused some damage. It means that at least microSD card slot should be labeled with the corresponding icon

    Hi all,
    New here (or maybe signed up years ago but lost the info after an HD crash!) too. Backed the AP80.
    Owner of a Sennheiser HD600 I wonder if the headphone impedance (300 ohm) won't be too high for the player to drive it correctly?!?!

    Although it does say it will drive 300 ohm headphone, you will want to use a headphone amp, as you always want headroom. My rule of thumb is 15%, as in never exceed 15% of the capacity of this case impedance.

    For me, I will stick to running IEM's for now.

    Hey I just watched HBB’s vid and the AP80 has the magic 8 ball dsp settings ( pretty cool ) and all 8 dac filters supported by the ess dac, not just 2. Plus a 10 band Eq

    For those who like to tinker with the base sound these are some pretty cool things. :)

    Maybe on the edge with the HD600... Will likely fit the Resonate IEM from Rockjaw Audio in (16ohm).

    Yes, i was thinking it might benefit even more with a balanced output, but for its tiny size and price point, 105dB is not bad! And i mainly just want that easy portable use. Just hope it can drive my pinnacle P1 well enough, as i do not intend on using another amp with it.

    I don't think I've seen over 80db channel separation for a single ended portable DAP before. Not sure I can hear the difference; but 105db channel separation seems amazing to me.

    Theoretically the higher channel separation should produce a wider sound stage. I don’t know how they achieved that since the amp is built into the dac, maybe higher quality output resistors and capacitors?

    If true, it’s very impressive for a dap this size and price point.
