I’m using Tidal app on iPad, and iPhone, and wanted a portable DAC that supports MQA to use with headphones. This works great for that. The “niggles” are that it comes with hardwired USB-C and an Apple lightning adapter. Since I’m not using it with a laptop I would prefer that to be reversed — that is hardwired lightning with USB-C adapter. Anyways we can’t always have everything.
I've been looking for a mobile solution to play hi res audio files - i.e. in the car and using IEMs. Was debating buying a mid-tier standalone DAP, but this seemed like a good solution paired with my iPhone. I've been using it for the past few days, and so far am happy with my purchase. it's tiny, handles a nice variety of files (including DSD up to 5.6), and has a great sound/soundstage. The connection using the lightning adapter is pretty secure and I can use my IEM's play pause button (but not the volume control). It gets a little warm, but not too much, and doesn't perceptibly drain my phone's battery. I would recommend this. Great turnaround time from Headphone Bar, too.
