Does anyone have any experience with this device? I was looking at purchasing one to pair with my Sennheiser HD 660 S headphones. They both seem to tick the boxes I'm looking for.

Not a lot of reviews out there on either of these so I wanted to "look before leaping", so to speak.

• Good DAC
• Internal Power Supply
• 6.3mm input (or 3.5mm)
• 4.4mm input (Pentaconn)
• USB output to computer

Look very nice. After that, no idea. But I do know they are highly unlikely to measure better than the RME ADI 2 DAC FS which is both still in production and well supported and also costs a fair bit less.

Thank you kindly for your response. I'll look into the RME along with the HDV 820.

Oh, just found the Topping DX7 Pro. That ticks a lot of my boxes.


Just have a care, the Topping has a high output impedance which can colour the sound of headphones of headphones with lower levels of impedance. I think the 660s are 150 ohm so should be fine , but if you look at getting a pair of dynamic drivers with less than 100 ohm impedance, might be an issue.

There is a Sabaj DAC amp too- cant remember the model reference but think reviewed here a while ago.
