Aiyima A08 DAC quality - external DAC worth it?


New Member

Hi all, I have my eye on an Aiyima A08 as a solution to power Polk R200s from a desktop computer running Ubuntu. I'm choosing the A08 over the A07 mostly due to the inbuilt PSU.

I haven't seen much data on how the A08 DAC performs. Will it do the job, or should I be looking at an external DAC immediately? For example, will an Apple dongle audibly outperform the A08 DAC, or do I need to start looking towards say a Topping D10s?
