Everything I've ever bought from Apos, (and that's several items including DACs, amps, IEMs and DAPs) was shipped from California.And did the return go well?
It's not a big deal that it's shipped from China. I was just naively expecting that Apos has a warehouse in the US, shipping from it and I will get the device in a few days. Even picked it up yesterday. Well, it is what it is
Weren't you supposed to write about sound and device instead of exciting adventures with transport companies and postmen?Good old times, now there are shipping from China Or, maybe Apos did me a favor? Requested to send me directly from China instead shipping first to them and then to me. It could be, they used express shipping without additional charge. In fact, they even gave me 5$ gift card. Great service so far
Post in thread 'Topping E70 Stereo DAC Review' https://audiosciencereview.com/foru...ping-e70-stereo-dac-review.39188/post-1529363Perfect, trusty setup, trusty member, you saved me 100 not-so-great-british-pounds. Thanks!
The equipment has no performance problems, and I tested several e70s in this thread.Hi. I'm going to replace SMSL D-6 with Topping E70. D-6 has got unpleasure bug - ti clicks loudly on source reconnection/connection to toslink or coaxial inputs. I'd want to be sure E70 hasn't got similar problems or any other problems for everyday using. Can you please list the main E70 drawbacks? (every device has got ones)
This device doesn't have such a function and Topping didn't promise it. It's your dream. If two sources give a signal, e.g. coax and spdif, how would the e70 know which one to choose?So far the only drawback is that auto input selection with the valid signal is not working. I was expecting to automatically switch to another valid input if the current one is disconnected. Right now I'm using only BT and USB, maybe that's the reason. Auto on/off function works as expected. I'm using DAC only mode (volume control is disabled).
Hello! It doesn't look like transport damage. The box of my e70 was in perfect condition, and packed in damping material. And the e70 itself is lined with foam or something similar in the boxThe equipment has no performance problems, and I tested several e70s in this thread.
Once I saw the front knob rubbing - crooked, another user reported a non-working BT internal or external antenna. Both damages appear to be transport damage.
There are also general issues reported for Topping that I don't understand, and I hope I never have to understand what I wrote in the link below:

did you have a second factory Topping box protecting and foil on the first box?Hello! It doesn't look like transport damage. The box of my e70 was in perfect condition, and packed in damping material. And the e70 itself is lined with foam or something similar in the box

Hello! Yes, outer box. And there was a flexible transparent polyethylene material, the surface of which is evenly covered with small protrusions filled with air. Unfortunately, I didn't take photos. I threw the wrappers in the trash. I don't see any problems with the BT defect, I use it with toslink (spdif) with Sony TV xh90 (I also tested with my LG TV nano866 2022 - everything is fine, although wrote here in the chat that there are problems with toslink on firmware 1.02), as well as USB with a computer, foobar2000. BT is also in my amp (AptxHD). A defect sometimes happens, no one is immune from it. Good luck to you!did you have a second factory Topping box protecting and foil on the first box?
