I see this comes with a Thesycon Driver V4.82 that you can download from their website, (...) What's the purpose of these downloadable drivers?
Windows 7 requires them. Windows 10 is plug and play. At least with my topping dac, was playing around with an old laptop today.

I didn't get a LA-QXD1 Manual with my sample so I don't know.
Thank you for your professional review. I'm so sorry for missing the LA-QXD1 Manual.
BTW, Am I missing something about low frequency noise(the blue channel)? Does RCA output have the same low frequency noise?

Appreciate you connecting this to aux power Amir, thanks for the review as always!

Nice work Ben. I think we're all curious about the RCA outputs now...

@Ben1987 You should add a 12V trigger output to these things for system integration. Would be another unique selling point as those aren't common on external dacs. Or at least, add one to your other dac :)

12v trigger could for example automatically switch on a power amp that's being fed from the dac.

I'm assuming this will ship from Shenzhen. Any plans for US-based distributors?
We are communicating with the dealers of US. We will inform them as soon as there is any new information.Considering the logistics situation, the best way to purchase is to contact my colleague: Message @Ann or email Ann.

I'm interested in pairing this with my nvidia shield tv pro. Does it have auto on/off like when it detects input from usb ? At the very least auto standby?
