I tested the jitterbug before forming ASR Forum. It came free with my iFi iDAC. As you can imagine, it does nothing.





Yay, first post! I stumbled across this site while looking up on information about the topping dacs (yeah, of course I would XD). To my pleasant surprise, this forum seems to encourage honest and free expression in a light-hearted yet serious manner- so that brings me here :)

Btw Amir, I was wondering if it'll be possible for you to measure the Ifi iusb3.0 nano as well. I've done a listening comparison with it feeding my OL DAC/SDAC and o2 amp setup with the Fostex THX-00 Ebony headphones connected, and to my ears it was even better than the Ifi iDSD Black Label feeding the Fostex headphones direct. They also have an iusb3.0 micro, but that is twice as costly and as such not worth the minor improvement imo

PS: Planning to upgrade to either a Topping D30 or D50 and the JDS Atom amp. Which of the Topping DACs would you recommend? If the ifi iusb3.0 is effective I plan to use it to power and feed the D50 via separate usb cables

Hello, recently i bought d30 and a30. And i'm curious, is there any way to connect my dap (cayin n3) to d30, because i haven't found stereo adapters 3.5 to single rca nor to optical. Sorry if I in the wrong thread

a bluetooth-optical should work if it's not working with usb

Wow, as tweaks go, that is so expensive ($420 on Amazon). So i won't be buying it. If someone wants to offer me one to test, I will do. I do have anther (smaller) ifi cleaner product to review.

Dang, that's expensive! I got mine under $200. Wouldn't mind sending it over, if not for the fact that it's in Singapore haha. The shipping would probably cost 30% of the product itself

Is this DAC still relevant now that the DX3PRO, the D50, the El DAC and the M8 are out?

I heard it at my friend's place and it outplayed my old REGA DAC! Tempted to swap my rega for that.

Yeah, why not? :) Considering both measurements and price point, it can arguably compete with those you mentioned. Not to mention it has already proven its relevancy to your ears XD
