This is the first DAC I have ever purchased for a Pi, so I didn't know what to expect. I am totally impressed with this little jewel! I have paired it with a Raspberry Pi 3B+, an ELV 38W amp and a pair of Focal LS RSE-130 speakers and installed all of this in a custom made wood enclosure. The sound has beaten absolutely all of my expectations for such a price point. I am particularly impressed with the clarity and stage/depth of the music. I highly, highly recommend it!
