D10 vs. D30 Comparison?

I currently have the D30, alongside the atom. Wondering what the differences are? Thanks.

The D10 is newer and has an ESS dac where the D30 is older and has a Cirrus dac. The D10 sounds a bit better, but I don’t think it would be worthwhile to buy a d10 if you already have a d30

interesting. then good thing I ordered the SMSL M100 then. I needed the optical input so the D10 was not an option and I wondered if it would be better for me to get the D30 or M100. I also thought about getting the M300 but I wanted it in black and amazon didn’t have it in black.

The M100 measured reasonably well at Audio Science Review. I think it is an AKM4452 DAC Chip, so it should sound a little more balanced than the D30.

wait a minute, how can the d10 be newer than the d30? 30 comes after 10
