I am very pleased with this DAC/AMP combo. You all have done something very special here. I had a RSA Raptor amplifier that began to exhibit noise and it broke my heart. So I had my Sennheiser HD800s running right off of my motherboard which was surprisingly silent. I finally broke or bent the headphone output and needed a DAC and amp. The Playmate 2 fit my current budget nicely and I am honestly surprised at the level of performance relative to its price. I really appreciate the opportunity to enjoy my music and audio at a competitive price. Thank you for doing what you do. You all clearly love audio. The truth of that is in how your product sounds. Clean, impactful, solid. You could have easily called it the smile machine 2. Happy Holidays.
