    Good thing, that's my preference! Medium power, balanced out, right?

    There are two USB interfaces. You don't have to connect all to use it,
    Q5 Working current is about 370mAh, When the USB interface is plugged into the computer can be charged at the same time. Computer USB interface power supply is not stable, some current smaller, while others can reach 1A.
    Another USB interface as an optional use, you can plug a more stable power adapter, so you can charge more quickly, but also on the sound quality is helpful, free from computer power pollution.
    Price: 349.99USD
    Power output: >150mW(PO/32Ω); >400mW(BAL./32Ω)
    Battery: 3800mAh (DAC>10h)

    Bottom amp module interface: 3.5 PO, micro USB, 2.5BAL.
    Top interface and switch: 3.5 line out, 3.5 input (AUX/coaxial/optical), BASS ON/OFF, GAIN L/H

    dual usb port is really good design. If anybody mostly use it as desktop, you could get the benefit from this design. No need to buy iFi iDefender..

    I know - but what about the oscillators? Any info?
  7. User00
    What is the output impedence of the balanced out?
  8. peterzzz
    Depends on the amp module, the default AM3A comes in at 1.7Ohm IIRC.

    So does this support AptX Low Latency? Other products using the CSR8670 do.

    It's too bad there isn't a balanced line out.

    Just make your own adapter.
  12. kukkurovaca
    An adapter isn't going to make a single ended line out provide a balanced signal

    You take the balanced out from the 2.5 mm TRRS and add a pair of XLR's. It's not hard to do.

    Lol, I'm aware of the 2.5mm output on the amp module. I was saying it's too bad there's only a single-ended line out bypassing the amp module and not a balanced line out.

    Glad I just found this thread a few days ago. Would've been a real shame if I had to wait 2 years for the release.

    I hope there will be a higher power, single-ended amp module that I can buy for it. I have no use for a balanced output from a portable DAC/amp.

    Looks really beautiful though; love the design.
