I'm likewise "ok with battery powered devices" too....because I have to be, hahahaha. It is what it is: if I don't want to be tethered to a spot with desktop gear, I need battery powered. I just refuse to pay the flagship-level prices; this is definitely a case of "can pay" versus "willing to pay" above a certain amount (arbitrarily set, admittedly) for a device with a degrading-over-time power source. Things get more complicated for me since I also don't want to use my phone as a transport or source.I'm ok with battery powered devices - the M11 does a decent job of driving my Z1Rs for instance. But yes, dongles means you do save money due to versatility - if it sounds as good as say a Hiby R6 2020. Unfortunately I do not think it'll sound as good as the M8, DX300 etc - though I'm just waiting for people to sell get bored and move on to the newest toy and grab a flagship DAP then, lol.
Anyway, I'm gonna watch threads like this for more mentions of any emerging tech/new gear. I totally forgot the XDuoo X10Ti even existed until I came across this thread. Given the explosion of quality dongles, I'm somewhat surprised it remains (I think?) the only device of its kind.
