Hey everyone, so I joined the Massdrop for a Topping DX3 Pro desktop DAC.
The measurements are superb (which I don't care that much about) but the specs that were important to me for a desktop headphone amp / DAC was having an outboard power supply because I think (maybe without evidence) this makes it more likely to have a great headphone amp with lots of reserve power.
I just got mine in. Cold, it had plenty of air, and sounded really really lean. Its getting better as it warms up.
Glad to hear that. As I wrote down above, scary comments about DX3 reliability are common in Audio.Science site. Waiting for mine yet... My grado´s 80 and AKG K702 are looking forward to being powered by DX3.
