This is a really good price for this portable, balanced + single ended dac and amp combo.  I'm not affiliated - but I do have the same stack, and really like it.  It drives my Mr. Speakers Balanced Mad Dogs (3.2) and my balanced HD650's very well.  I have had the opportunity to compare to some nice desktop hardware at a couple of meets.  The little iBasso stack does very well in comparison.  Again, not affiliated, just thought I'd throw a note up that this is a nice rig at a nice price.

Thank you for the reply. If I wasn't in need of funds for another project, I wouldn't sell it. I had an RSA Intruder but preferred this set-up more. Lots of power, a ton of options and sound quality is amazing. Paired beautifully with HE-500's.
