    If you can get a note 9 for that price then you should do it without too much thinking.
    You should really try s9 / note 9 by yourself. They are good enough for low impedance.
    V30 / V30+ is a good phone pretty much only SQ wise. Can't recommend it for anything else.

    If your pc got a type C port then I suggest to buy the apple type C dongle for 10 eur and try it with your gear. It got quite the incredible measurements and unless you need to drive really high impedance it might be loud enough.
    I consider most of the stuff in this thread to be audiophile BS, I can only suggest to try the stuff yourself.

    Those are some harsh words at the end, but thanks for the suggestion anyway.

    Like every smartphone running Oreo ?

    I mean , if you are talking about Bluetooth , you can connect any phone running Oreo with the Fiio BTR3 and you'll have the same result.

    You misunderstood the point. I was comparing the BTR3 with the Note9's headphone output.

    Phone spec outdated already.

    So what would be the better choice right now? planning to get the meizu pro 6 plus or is there any better alternative?

    Hopefully someone in here can help me. I have an LG G6 h870ds with the quad DAC and ESS Sabre Chip. As a phone it just wasn’t up to the job so I have gone back to iPhone as they just work, but i’m not happy with the sound from it. Just wondered if something like the Dragonfly red or black would be much of an upgrade in sound from the LG? If not then i’ll Probably keep the LG as a DAP.

    I think dragonfly red has the same chip as the lg g6 although not sure. I would keep the g6 cause I don't think you will see much difference. It's better to keep your money and invest in the future in Serious dap as I want to do. I have the shanling m0 and it's great. I wanted to buy the g7 but I don't think it's worth it. So I'm collecting money to buy something more powerful in the future.

    Depend on what brand is selling in your country.

    Hello all,

    I would like to get a phone with a good DAC very soon and I would like to know if anyone of you has an idea in the meantime if the Meizu 16th has a DAC and also which one is used. I read somewhere that the 16th has an amp and the 16th plus an amp+DAC, but I could not find any source not the type of DAC.
    Also, is there any Xiaomi phone with a DAC or does any Oneplus have a dedicated DAC?

    Thanks a lot :)

    Audio quality of OnePlus 6 is in line with top smartphones, including Apple iPhones. They all sound similar, at least with 32 Ohm headphones.

    Details of objective music-based audio measurements are on this df-slide:
