    I could not find a thread on the Aune S6 Pro, so I thought "I'll just make one" :)

    First, a bunch of specs:

    Chip: AK4497

    Type

    DAC with volume
    headphone amplifier

    inputs

    USB 32bit 768kHz / DSD512
    COAX: 24bit 768kHz DSD512
    OPTICAL
    AES

    Outputs

    XLR 4pin Headset
    Jack 6.35mm headset
    variable asymmetrical RCA
    XLR variable symmetric
    Output Level 405mW @ 300 Ohm (XLR)
    120mW @ 300 Ohm (6.35)
    Frequency response 20Hz-20kHz
    dynamic range 119dB
    SNR 118dB

    Dimensions 288x63x211mm

    I have had my unit for a few days, and I really like it. I have had both the Aune X1, X1s and X7 before this, and I think Aune makes some great products.

    I won't write my impressions just yet, but others should feel free to do so.

    You linked S6 Specs. S6 Pro uses AK4497. Total harmonic distortion: 0.0005%

    Sorry about that - I corrected the specifications you mentioned.

    Aune s6 pro, excellent product.

    I Mostly use my Aune s6 pro with my Hifiman HE4xx headphone and my monitors Adam audio tv5's on my desk setup.

    It drives my HE4xx with easy on the 1/4innch headphone output put. HE4xx is pretty fast fun to listen to. The highs, mids and low-end are incredibly fast and punchy to me but I miss the energy. Ill get a balanced xlr 4pin cable next week, I am curious it will power my HE4xx a bit better, I do feel it lacks some energy.

    With my T5v's its soooo weird.... they are connected via XLR. They sound super controlled, punch and have way more energy to them than I have experienced before with some other dacs I owned.
    They are spacious and wide and push the music into the room. I had NAD D-1050 and Arcam rDac. Booth these dac's are certainly not bad. But comparing them to how i like music... they just very far surpassed by the Aune s6 pro.

    Do note I am just an average user with so-called taste audiofile for gear. I am absolutely not an expert. This just me telling what I feel and think when am listening to the Aune s6 pro. Am willing to learn more, to better use words wich maybe make more sense.
