    Actually I have been temped to buy from Antipodes their DS series for years.
    But it has more function then I need the internal DAC and internal HDD plus all the ability for networking and multi-room.
    At one stage Antipodes has plan to release low cost model does not has DAC and HDD.
    But that has been dropped.
    I don't know when my Fiio X3 broken I might get Antipodes DS or Fiio's next DAP maybe it has USB out.
     
    Note: I don't like Fiio's internal DAC it sound sharp.

    Hi all,
    I am a new owner of iFi nano iDSD, and just can agree that it sounds great. I use it as a DAC connected to the  Mac Mini and next to a power amp, with original USB and RCA cables.
    Unfortunately, I started to get sporadic playback stops and resets, which sometime coincided with placing my arm close to the iDSD but not even touching it. First blamed vibration and cables, but apparently they were fine. Finally I was able to trace down that this erratic behaviour was clearly dependant on two factors - my arm/palm within 5-10 cm distance from iDSD and … my Icebreaker merino wool t-shirt on myself. Wearing noname cotton one rescued the situation.
    Of course, I am aware about static electricity and the fact that discharge can ruin delicate equipment, but there definitely was no discharge, simply exposure to electric field by approaching hand. 
    So I wonder whether there might be a proper way to connect iDSD to a ground or other means how to protect the device. Wearing antistatic bracelets is out of the question :)
