    I just got word that Shanling will be releasing a tiny new USB-C DAC/AMP for portable and computer use soon. It looks like a handy little device to have around for smartphone users looking for better sound or as a travel DAC/AMP for your laptop or tablet. I'm hoping to try one out soon and let you all know what I think. I don't have word on pricing or availability yet, but I'm sure @Shanling will let us know in the near future.

    How much is it? 

    Sounds like the Dragonfly might have competition.

    I'm waiting to find out and will update the first post and bump the main thread when I know. I hope to have one in to try soon, so I can let everyone know what I think.

    Now this looks nice! MFI certification so should not have to utilise a bulky CCK or USB 3 adapter with iOS and ESS 9018k2m. I am very interested in this. My Hifimediy 9018 sounds great but is very power hungry running off of my iPhone. I wonder how this will do battery-wise especially compared to the Dragonfly Black and Red being nice and easy on your phone's battery.

    Well, I'm hoping we'll find out soon.!

    I've got both iOS and Android phones I can test with...

    Wonderful! Any sort of ETA?? I was so very close to placing my order for an Audio Opus #11... But this has me intrigued....

    Was debating buying a Dragonfly but depending on price and release date this could be interesting.

    Power management is one of our most concern, in the test there is no problem for iPhone usage.

    Nice unit! Great job Shanling...

    Now, next edition to include physical volume button/scroll wheel... :p

    Edit: Wait a minute...just re-read the description and understood that UP is a DAP?!?!? Which can be used as a MFi DAC/Amp??!?
     
  14. nmatheis Contributor
    Nope. It's an MFI-certified mini DAC/AMP kind of like Cozy Aegis or AudioQuest Dragonfly.
     
  15. nmatheis Contributor

    Cool! Where can we buy it from the US?
