About this deal

Measured performance of the FX-Audio DAC-X6 is rather disappointing. It loses to similarly priced Fiio E10K and by a larger margin to Topping D30.

I've got another 'proper' rig, for my 'serious' listening. This dac-amp combo is just for computer media usage; mainly films, series, youtube etc. I would normally just plug straight into the laptop, for this. But the laptop's sound has a problem (thankfully only in the analogue domain). I have to use USB audio, now. Interesting to see a dedicated protection circuit IC (C1237HA). This guards against shorts in the headphone output causing damage to driver IC.What happened was this: the tonal balanced didn't really change at all, or it happened so imperceptibly that I can't tell the difference. But! The amount of detail doubled. Or tripled. Suddenly there is so much happening everywhere. So much air. So much detail. And it is a very smooth thing, too. There is no harshness to anything. You just find layers upon layers of texture in the instruments. The bass might be a smidgen more controlled than with the OPA2134, but it is very close.

Measurement and Review of FX-Audio DAC-X6 DAC (compared to

Compare X6’s line-outs to something like Topping E30 and the latter shows a bit more tone richness and subtlety. DAC X6 is a bit rough around the edges but not that far behind really. Low impedance headphones won't sound good with them as they can be quite sensitive to noise and such. The dac x6 has a output impedance of about 10 ohms so you generally want something above 80 or to be safe a 100 ohms as you generally want your output impedance/ headphone Impedance ratio to be 1/8or 1/10Yeah; this is a mains powered amp (rather than usb, or battery), that's one of the factors why I chose it. This is surely the (most) correct category.

There also a Dilvpoetry one like the original. There are some difference. Dilvpoetry also made this revamped version.Also, when you do your listening tests, are you doing them before the measurements to minimize bias? I believe the PCB with the white daughter board is a later revision on the FX-AUDIO DAC-X6. Not sure what the difference is but to me it sounded good. I had actually bought one recently to test. My first one did not have the daughter board and sounded similar.
