Wow how scummy. They aren't even using the cirrus logic chip but a cheap realtek one, that dashboard is absolutely fake. Ridiculous.. nice find though. It just angers me, they basically use ASR material to promote a bad product!!
I think there's different modes but the default is the one Amir tested I believe? Pretty sure it would work but with these dongles there's also compatibility issues... Apple dongle on Android, meizu on iOS, you read all kinds of issues online I'm afraid.
it is, probably, the best $10 DAC in the world. not bad at all and I don't have any audible issues using it
Nooooo, no no no. big no. Don't buy snake oil, don't support snake oil, don't throw away perfectly good money.
If you want good cables, check out "world's best cables" on amazon. They make EXCELLENT stuff.
I hated the K702. Super dry and sterile sounding. Maybe what a mastering engineer wants? In any case the K712 Pro would be my pick for an AKG headphone. And yeah, I would simply drive it from motherboard. Will probably work fine on the more expensive Asus boards. No need to get a dac/amp right...
