Hi all..
Does anyone know if you can run XLR and RCA at the same time on the Loxjie d40
Sorry for the late answer.
Yes it is possible : Long press on the 'output' button toggles between SE, BAL or both (LIN comes on the display - what could that mean ?).
Short press toggles between HPA and the selected output (SE-BAL-Both, depending on the preveous setting)

Now been using it for a while. As I can't test it with any measurements, only thing I can say : I like it, sounds just perfect.

What I have not found is a way to make it work in DAC mode (fixed output).
I did find out however, that the BAL-led goes on as soon as there is output on XLR.

so are you saying "Lin" option means both output. cuz im not seeing "both" when i toggle through output selection.

Yes, the output button and the mode button on the remote toggles between the three options : Single Ended = "SE" on the display, Balanced = "BAL" on the display, Both outputs simultaneously = "LIN" on the display.

Another question: does it have auto on/off and can anyone confirm the power consumption of 0.5 watts in standby mode?

There does not seem to be any auto on/off. Can't say anything about the standby mode.

It seems 9068 is likely to have more 'hump' than 9038pro, say SMSL su8s and Gustard X16.

What kind of headset is being used, is it a highly sensitive one? Or are the machine's broken and in need of warranty? You can contact me if you need help.

Yea its a pretty sensitive IEM... Mangird Tea. has multiple drivers. other earphones are fine. so im guessing it has something to do with the sensitivity or multiple balanced drivers.

I just ordered one from Amazon, first because I need a balanced output to use my Sabaj A8s as monoblocks and second because I FINALLY saw a dac of the well-known brands (topping smsl, sabaj loxije) that looks really elegant and "Western", I really like it aesthetically and it looks so professional and elegant. The thing I don't understand is why you continue to insert only one input of each type, I understand oer products with very low dimensions and costs such as Topping E30 / 50 but with all this space there would have been two optical and two coaxial inputs, too bad. (my ideal would also have been an rca line input to take advantage of other sources with the same preamp, but I don't expect too much ...)

Thanks for your suggestion. We will consider your suggestion to add more input ports. More USB input ports can be added.
