Probably not, unless your distances are great, or you think you're experiencing EMI issues from the unbal. cables.
Hi sir,I had a chance to test the BT + LDAC input on the D-6 and it also exhibits the same 2 sec output starting lag as the DO100, but considering it's price point it's hard to fault it IMO (it also sounds wonderful BTW).
One can "solve" this problem by hooking a separate LDAC receiver box with SPDIF/Coax out like the Fiio BTA30 Pro, but this combo is pretty close in price to a Topping EX5 that also has an added headphone amp so YMMV.
My other minor quibble about the D-6 is the LED display is still way too bright on the lowest setting, and there's also no display auto turn off function like on the Topping DX3+ and D50s. Personally, I think vendors should at least pay some attention to usability to any product regardless of price.
Hi! Can you share which specific remote to buy? How do you determine compatibility with Topping/SMSL?(Don't have a D-6). My new SMSL remote (separate volume keys) from A300 has a little worse angle sideway compared to the old remote from my SA300. Only a few degrees and doesn't matter on a desktop setup. These are all still IR remote and subject more to interferences, etc. so don't expect much difference between them; they are all usable but not good.
Now I just use one single Anderic remote to control everything/brand I use (Topping/SMSL/FX-Audio). Much easier.
I am using an infrared "learning" remote - meaning I have to learn each individual key press from a source remote to the target(learning) remote. I believe if you have a harmony remote there are presets for topping that can be used and that would be the easiest. Other than that there is no other universal remote that you can just key in a device code and be able to control a Topping/SMSL/etc. devices.Hi! Can you share which specific remote to buy?
