3 people in a room: me, a friend and friend's wife.
System: Dali Oberon 7 powered by Atoll IN200 Signature, Van den Hul cables.
We all agreed Topping D90 MQA sounds a little better than Qutest (we tested them side by side), even though it was hard to choose from. When price also comes into play...
@Sam Spade Strage enough, I also like and own Burson, Audeze and Dali products :)
Recently tried some Chinese brand Dac/amps and they are also very good and clean. I guess it's just a great time for Hifi.
The only issue with the Qutest I found was the price, compared to the competition.
Mine came in today. Has a short 1metre power cable, and that's the only "bad" thing I can say about it. Also had an USB cable included (there were people asking about it).
Also, it seems my streamer (Atoll MS120) can send "good vibes" via coaxial in the X16. Full unfolding.
Just get an external USB DAC with a headphones amplifier. There's really a lot of them for up to $300. Sound cards are things of the past for audiophiles.
You will be able to also use it with a laptop and most likely won't suffer from interference with other components in the computer case.
