I cannot remember listening to a desktop, computer or iPod system that sounded as full, especially with the compact size of the speakers and amp.

    4.5/5 Sound: Clean and quiet from both the headphone and amp section. Headphone section was surprisingly resolving with AKG K702s. Amplifier section was loud and punchy, but clear using DALI zensor 1's - I assume that using a more sensitive 8ohm speaker would yield even better results. Design: Sturdy and solid. Volume knob feels kind of cheap, but serviceable. I would have preferred two RCA inputs, but I understand the logic behind the 1/8" jack. If more inputs are needed, just add a cheap Schiit SYS. Overall: For the price, there isn't much competition if you want to have a clean sounding headphone and integrated amp - definitely recommended.
