Is the back panel carbon fibre? Looks nice. What is the sound signature? Looking forward to read more about it, 🍻.
Yes it is the carbon fiber panel.:)

is that the same size as the W1 because on the images it looks like they are identical twins - and uses the same display i guess.
I actually like the black colour better than the silver on my W1.
So eagerly awaited W2.... good news then...
Yes W1 and W2 are the same size.

So putting W2 on 100 volume makes the PO act as LO?
That’s what the reviewer says. Still I would not consider this as a true LO since the Amp portion of W2 is not bypassed.

Wow, these first impressions are awesome.
Serious question - should I sell my Hiby R6 2020 and get this instead to use with my phone...? Would it be comparable? Any ‘real’ downsides?
With a DAP, you have a separate unit with its own battery power. Using a dongle means you are using your phone's battery so you'll have to be close to a charger when listening to music. Plus the DAP offers a separate place to put your music files instead of taking up your memory or card in your phone.
On the plus side, you don't have to carry around a phone and a DAP which makes for lighter travel.

Thank you ... these ‘logistical’ differences make sense.

Logistics aside, was also wondering about pure sound quality considerations...

I guess it will be hard to say specifically for L&P W2 since no one has done a direct comparison, but wondering how these dongles (L&P W1, Lotoo S1) have fared when compared to DAPs?
