    I wonder what's inside this thing on the DAC and amplifier side and how it compares to O2+ODAC. Can't wait for somebody to open it and examine the chips inside.

    LE:
    Nevermind, I looked at the tech specs and there is no way this can beat a O2+ODAC combo as it is ~$100 cheaper, has a proprietary DSP and custom proprietary software that must add extra production costs and also probably sells for a higher profit margin.

    There is no mention of a battery so I really doubt it can actually drive high impedance headphones without clipping.
