Picked up a Fiio BTR5 to play with. With Koss KPH30i's via LDAC from a Pixel 4XL, this thing sounds pretty sweet right out of the box. Dec 28, 2020

        My Shanling M0 has the same DAC chip and I’m pretty content with it..

        @dubiousmike, did you ever hear a difference while playing with the output impedance switch for the HD650/800?

        @Pyruvate sorry for the much delayed reply on this! It is easiest to hear the difference in the bass, particularly with hd800's, although the effect is somewhat subtle. With impedance switched to low, deep bass is tighter and more detailed. Switch it to high and it gets a little more rounded off, but mid-bass gets slightly fuller.

      You have any experience with the BH phono's?

        Afraid not. If you end up taking the plunge though, I'd be interested to hear your impressions.
