I received mine yesterday, and all I can say is i’m very impressed with this little thing. I actually prefer the tone 2 pro to my magnius/modius stack. It really does sound a bit cleaner, though i’m not really well versed in how to describe it. I don’t have the balanced rca cables, which are $50 for a 0.2m cable pair and $90 for a 1m long cable pair. The magnius is the only thing i could connect it to with the rca to xlr cables, so i’m probably not gonna go for those yet, But this thing can power my headphones just fine. I’ve tried gl2000, hifiman 4xx, isine 10, tin p1, and other iems and headphones and this thing can power them all well. some on high gain and quite a few on low. I just love this thing. You can power it via smartphone usb-c to usb-c, though it does drain the smartphone battery pretty considerably, but you can also hook up a usb power bank to the i2s and use that for power. the 2nd usb c is labled i2s, but from what I can tell its to hook up a separate power supply. The only real negative I can say about it is the control scheme. The volume knob is digital, and you have to click it twice(you click it by pushing the knob down) to change what setting your controlling. The led at the base of the knob will tell you what setting is currently being controlled, and the paperwork it comes with has a whole list with pictures to tell you what color the led it for the setting. Only negative, but I still really like this thing. I’m glad I bought it before zeos does his review because it probably would’a been sold out on amazon before I could get one. So in short, great sounding, decently powerful, and i prefer this to my modius/magnius setup.
Oh, and 1 thing i did find is that on pc, equalizer apo doesn’t seem to work with this when using that as a pc dac/amp, but I’m not sure if that’s my end or the khadas drivers messing with it.
