I could not wait so i ordered it. Topping has done a very good job as of late so I have some faith this turned out at least decent. Plus I am dying to hear the akm chipset on my Paradigm Persona's.

To the two guys in this thread who ordered already, please report real world usage soonest!
I'll keep it under the magnifying glass and I'll report you how it work. If will be in a blue zone of sinad, for me will be almost perfect.

guys can this decode MQA? I've recently got in to Tidal Masters. Thank you.
No. But you can just as easily have the MQA decoding happen inside the player. That is how I do it (with Tidal through Roon).

Thank you for reviewing SU-8 and D 70 and your effort!

Considering the results that you published, D70 seems to be outperforming SU-8. Aside from those, I am just wondering about your valuable opinions regarding the sonically benefits of D70 over SU-8 in terms of instrumental separation, soundstage and clarity of presentation.

Soo my KTB died today. The white LED will come on for a second and then it shuts off... And along with it my Singxer F-1 won't carry a signal T.T

Looks like I'll be ordering this baby sooner than later... well to be honest, relatively the same time I was planning on buying it anyway xD

@frogmeat69 Sorry, let me be clear. KTB died due to user failure.

Down the line I was powering an iFi iDefender externally with 9V by accident (thought it was 5V), connected to a Singxer F-1 finally connected to my KTB. The Singxer (I believe) fried, and the Khadas went with it. Singxer will power up but won't carry a signal, and the Tone Board will light up only for a second and dies.

Do not do what I did lol.
