No, he found exactly the right place to get all this BS revealed as what it is.

This guy is one of the most ridiculous subjectivist reviewers around. He hears the difference of all the dacs and amplifiers. If you believe someone like him, you are probably not right at ASR.
He's a flake! :facepalm: I made commentary at one of his videos and it lasted about 25 minutes and he erased it. It was about a Hegel amp review.

Unfortunately, since visually it beats the Topping DX3 Pro+ by far, it looks gorgeous, alas the headphone amp unbalanced is very weak. What a pity.
Same here. Love the look and the volume knob, unlike the clicky Dx3Pro+ which will skip occasionally. I’m looking at the Aune X8 + X7s.. not sure if Dx3Pro+ is better than that stack or not..

Hi everybody,

In a previous post, I realted about problems with quality and especially customer support.
I must say that it turned out that the culprit was the reseller... not the manufacturer.

As soon as the AUNE Team saw my message they got in touch with me.
After finding out where the problem was, they offered SUPERB customer support.

Even if it took a long time (they are in China and it all had to go over a reseller that was not the original one !!!) I finally got a totally functional x8s DAC as a replacement.

So I would like to stress that I am now again enjoying my music over the x8 DAC and x7s HP amp and I would like to say that, to my ears, coupled to a Sony MDR-Z7 HP or an Oppo PM-1 it produces a sound that I really really like :)

Hope to see more products from AUNE in the future :)

So a HUGE THANK YOU to customer support from AUNE for their follow up in this and their superb help.

We complain when things go wrong. We should also tell when we're happy after all :)
