Upgraded DAC Chips
The dual ES9038 DAC chips on the original DX7s have been upgraded to one ES9038PRO DAC.

IIS input and 4.4mm balanced output
Topping has also boosted its input IIS and 4.4mm balanced output as additions on DX7 pro comparing with DX7s.

Latest Bluetooth 5.0 addition on Topping DX7 pro
Topping has employed the Qualcomm Bluetooth 5.0 Soc CSR8675 on DX7 pro with LDAC transmission supported.

The price maybe $599, what do you think about it?

In my review, the DX7 Pro will be up against my old 2016 Audio-GD NFB-28 and the iFi Pro iDSD.

My initial impressions are very strong. I could see myself retiring my NFB-28. But of course, I'll need to take more time in the comparison before deciding on that.

As for the Pro iDSD , no XLR PO is inexcusable, and even after they sent me a replacement unit, the 2.5mm balanced is dodgy. So the DX7 Pro wins huge points for its simpler, better-functioning design. Though I suspect it will be a tough battle in terms of sound.

Look at the size difference between these two!

Clearly shows that size doesn't matter

To be fair, the NFB-28 does have WAY more power, but it's mostly wasted power. I've never needed that much for any headphone or speaker. Still, it's kind of nice knowing you have it. :wink:
