ok now I'm curious to see this compared to the QLS QA361
I was looking for the alien+ replacement for quite sometime and the qls361 was one the potential candidate. However, the qls361 is a little warm & muddy for my liking, as I prefer a more clear and transparent sound.

I own a set of alien+ and demo qls 361 multiple times. I was extremely tempted to grab a unit of qls 361 and turns down the purchase due to the over whelming warmth and muddiness of the sound signature.

oh for me this is a no, i was thinking to go with a screen dap, coming from a Nuansa P1, I was looking for an used QP1R, QA361, and now that one, but if the QA361 is very warmth is excluded from my list

My condolences on whatever you have been listening to that is so sizzlingly bright and edgy that you find the 361 warm and muddy! :dt880smile: I find it quite open and natural sounding with acoustic music, and plenty fast for metal. I'd be curious to know what music you listen to, what cans/iems you use, and what daps you find acceptably 'non-muddy'. I'm also curious what settings you used on the 361.

Odd choice to release this with the 4490 vs the 4493 in 2019. The price is pretty high for a single dac cheap, no balanced option, limited software, and very little detail from the seller.

Certainly surprised of the impressions vs the wm1z, I'll keep my eye in this one, as the software improves.

Does it work with 512gb micro sd cards

Thanks for sharing with the leather case, the cut out for the control panels looks a bit excessive. But a warm touch to leave vents holes at the back to avoid overheating.

This may sound weird but, is it better to get this for an upgrade rather than a used QP1R or WM1A? I'm into "natural" sounding DAPs now after hearing the two. Currently, I have the DX120, it is very good but it lacks the natural sound, realism (or whatever you call it) I'm looking for.
