I don’t see why it wouldn’t. Most mid level DAPs don’t have a “true” line out anyways. It’s just an LO settting that runs a dap full bore. I find running the D2 around 120 and low gain (headphone thing off) is about right. High gain mode running too hot creates distortion. I’ve got a portable headphone amp that takes balanced In, i’ll Check it later and let you know what I think about balanced as LO on the PD2.
