Have we been told how much power this draws from an iPhone? Is it significantly more than the Apple lightning to 3.5mm adapter?
The same as W2, I measured about 110-120mA (using 4.4mm out)

very excited for it. I hope there will be some comparison between this and R01 module soon. I'm debating on which to buy
The same tech (discrete R-2R), but 2 different functionalities, with RU6 being standalone and at less then half the price. Apples and oranges, right? :wink:

Also different resistors than R01.

Excellent, let me puff up my sofa pillows, take my shoes and trousers off and butter up the popcorn...

Congratulations ! Nearly half the power of R01 for about 40% of the price. This should be excellent for IEMs and headphones (especially > 100 dB/mW and < 50 ohms)
