    I just got one of these on Saturday. Great sound for so little $$$. I'm impressed that they had the sense to use USB C. Who could have imagined even 1-2 years ago that this would be available.

    GLWS. No brainer.

    Can this be powered by a smartphone? Or does it draw too much power?

    I can't say. I just got it a couple of days ago and used it with my Macbook Pro and Audirvana software.

    I'm sure it depends on what you ask of it. if you expect a USB powered dac/amp to deliver DSD sounds for any length of time you might be asking a bit much from a smartphone.

    It works with laptops or desktops, windows, mac and even raspberry pi. To work with your smartphone, you might need a USB splitter for it to draw phantom power from the second USB slot. Unfortunately your smartphone will not be able to power up Sabaj Da3 on its own.

    so far I think Sabaj Da3 is the cheapest way to have 2.5mm balanced output (two DAC chips and two sets of opamps) LOL

    It's an excellent little device. Yes, it can be powered by smartphone (s7edge). The best way i use this is with a usb splitter cable connected to a portable powerbank which routes power to the dac (but doesn't charge my phone unfortunately). Balanced output is preferable, excellent sound for so little $$$

    This review was what actually motivated me to try the DA3. Quite an eye opener from a standpoint of objective information.
