Not a thing.

Although, taking a look at what seems to be the key information,
it's almost Class A, has very low distortion of all types, etc.etc.
-- the same stuff I've been reading from audio companies for 20+ years

Nonetheless, I'd keep an open mind and be more than willing to give it a listen

Looks interesting but im not sure how long it lasts. The optical is a nice touch but who uses that on the go...?

I just pulled the trigger on one after watching Z reviews I have a dragonfly red but wanted more ommph for my Abbys Diana and Ether Cx
I never believed the dragonfly usbs could ever do much. You're better off with this proper amp. Ypu wont regret it.

Will be waiting for your impressions on it!
@Tsukuyomi actually, the Red is pretty damn nice. It's been winning the under $500 DAC/Amp not for nothing.

Wow really nice it drove my Ether Cx and Diana wonderfully - plenty of power left- clean sounding- and with the added bonus of a nice Peq- and crossfeed option - very well done- the volume is really cool With very minute adjustments. Caveat I will just use this by my bedside and around the house - I just wanted to use my good headphones outside my desktop- thumbs up

Does the sound rival a desktop setup? The only portable I've heard that does is the Hugo 2.

I just ordered one of these. Was curious about it since it came out. I’ve got a Burson Playmate in my hands now and can compare it to that (which is generally price equivalent). The Burson sounds great, so I’m curious how they stack up.
