It looks nice, but I am replacing my Topping D30 with the Khadas Tone Board DAC which has a THD+N of 0.0003%.

well those values are tested under different conditions. So does not mean much.

Khadas Tone Board DAC looks good but it uses usb power, which may be super unstable.

My tone board is on the way and I'm planning to power it with a linear supply which I happen to own one. I'll make a subjective comparison vs direct USB connection.

well, if you look at the thd+n vs frequency, you will find that tone board does not behave that good compares to topping d30. I am glad that topping d70 claims <0.0006%(20-20khz). This is much useful than [email protected]

Nope, the khadas DAC has better measurements than the Topping D30, so I have no idea what you are talking about.

let’s wait till amirm measures it.
If you mean Gala DAC, I don't have a plan to measure it at this time. I have so much other gear piling up that I need to test those than re-testing that unit.

What I mean is I don’t really trust the measurement from manufacturer.
