      Fantastic DAC. Version that Sound Imports sells is HW 1.7 and SW 1.3 (so its a M500 V2!). I use it to power my DT770Pro and DT880Pro 250Ohm also serve as pre amp driving my studio monitors. Great DAC performance, works flawlessly with Tidal MQA. Also SHIPPING and HANDLING of Sound Imports was under 30 hours delivered home via DHL to Malta. Fantastic. I have never been more satisfied.
