    As per Taobao , DC02 is cheaper than DC01.

    DC02 -AKM 4490, DC01- AK4493

    Yeah, I hope it's cheaper and has the same dac chip.

    EDIT: I just saw the comment above. Oh, well.

    Here is almost all info about DC02.
    Its sad. I expected approximately same specs as DC01 but 3.5 out. Well, DC02 looks more cheaper, worst specs and not such great cable. Cant wait reviews to know something about sound.

    Lets wait for pow wow with Apple dongle

    Why would you expect the same power? It's unbalanced so that output looks roughly correct (usually 4x the power into balanced, not double as suggested earlier). The 'benefit' of the DC02 is quite clear - for those who want use gear with unbalanced 3.5mm connectors without purchasing new cables or re-terminating existing cables.

    So it seems the DC01 does not show up as a native DSD DAC and I can only get it to play DSD files over PCM. Has anyone successfully played back native DSD with the DC01?


    P.S. could anyone please tell me how to properly attach images? I am too stupid haha

    Is DC01 enough to drive monoprice M1060C (open) to its full potential? I have fioo alpen 2 and I would expect seeing sound improvement going to this
     
  11. artpiggo
    Is this planar? Then no. Planar driver needs more desktop amp to shine.
     
  12. senegalas
    Yeah it is planar boy. But it is pretty easy to drive and tbh I can't really tell a difference between my fioo and phone when I listen, fioo is maybe a bit better. Also fioo is 1.7vrms and dc01 is 1.9vrms so extra voltage wouldn't hurt
     
  13. senegalas
    So it kinda would be nice if someone compared DC01 to a cheap deaktop amp and tell me how worse it is
     
  14. senegalas
    Also could someone explain me how balanced cables work because I am looking some for my M1060C and kinda wonder, a lot of ppl claim that their cable is balanced but the ends that plug into headphone only have one pole (just like original monoprice cable). Shouldn't the end have 2 poles? Here is the link to cable I want to buy
