    Anyone know if the PDv2 is syncronous/asyncronous or isocronous ?
    I think there are 3 ways of dealing with timing on external DACs interfacing with computers maybe...

    i just notice this jumping/popping at times streaming audio through browsers on MacOS with soundflower pot...though SF Pot may be causing the issue at times...kind of like a needle jump from a record player....I think it does not happen on Audirvana+ as that kind of locks down the system background tasks.

    Does the E1DA 9038S work with a windows10 (mobile or not) device?

    Got PowerDac V2 today, super like SQ without using any Preset with P1.

    I am able to play using Windows 10 via PC, but when I connect Y split cable to phone (V40), music does not play. I see phone start charging.
    What could be issue, please suggest.

    I have 2.5 balanced cable and playing perfectly when connected to PC, only the phone is problem.

    Working now, I was playing around and understood the issue.

    First connect phone to Y cable and then powerbank.

    For PDv2 owners, do yourself a favor and pick up a pair of Monolith M300s, for $50 shipped (credit goes to @baskingshark for pointing out the sale price)

    M300s setup on a Parts Express $6 headphone, headband

    Edit to add PEQ settings:
    I started with the Harman curve, Tin P1 preset and did a few minor tweaks to the filters

    That looks sick in a retro kinda way! Would've strongly considered this had i not already reached my endgame desktop setup with the ex1k/pdv2 combo. Using that headband(looks like a Koss), hows the clamping force? And what was used to attach the m300 to the headband?

    Do they M300 planar IEMs not have rough treble and rolled off bass or was that a powering underestimation issue on early reviews ?

    Hey, do you know if the guys from E1DA, I contacted them about getting their product in China, through the website contact, and got no answer. Besides, do you know if all phones are compatible?
