I believe it's due to its "positional" sound when using as a speaker. I think it's going for a headphone replacement, hence the noise canceling part as well. I guess theoretically you would be able to communicate clearly when using a speaker, which normally doesn't happen unless you have a super cardioid mic or something like that. Honestly, that dac is usually 200ish by itself so I'm tempted just to use it for that.

Quote from VegaTheChosen :
I don't really need to know the dac quality as it currently costs over 50 percent less. Sure they don't make high end dacs but does this mean this one isn't fine for under 200 bucks for someone possibly just dabbling in dacs. Sure we'd all love the one you mentioned but are you going to cough up the extra 250 for someone? Or would I be just fine if I'm looking for a fairly decent dac with bonus features? That's what makes this an ok deal. Can you name other decent dacs that are currently below $200?
No one said it was better than even a $90 DAC silly. You keep trying to force that comparison to show this thing in a good light when no one knows how good the DAC is.

If you are dabbling in DACs you should buy a unit that's actually been reviewed, not guess on a unit with unknown quality.

There are PLENTY of decent DACs under $200. You can get a DAC / AMP easily for that amount (shciiit stack, o2+odac, Fiio products, ect), let alone just a DAC.

As I pointed out earlier, even the top 5 DX5 is a DAC / AMP combo, it includes both. You keep implying as if this is a good deal when this unit does not include an AMP. You can get just the DAC portion from topping for $225 and that blows a majority of the DACs on the market out of the water.

Reviews from audiophiles disagree: https://www.audiosciencereview.co...ion.16919/

Even the most budget DACs from Fiio or Schiit will bring much better quality. Mind you, the standard DAC on LG phones is sometimes better than Quad DAC as channel imbalance is worse when you have quad dac enabled.

Then again most phones don't need a good DAC. Any wireless audio device is going to be using it's own internal DAC.

There are well over 100 decent dacs and dac/amp combos under $200. Topping, smsl, douk, monoprice, schiit, fiio, ifi, and fx audio each have about 3-6 options and that's just off the top of my head.

Have you even looked?

And yeah, LG made decent audio interfaces…. compared to other phones.

Ultimately I decided to send mine back. It's not that it's particularly bad, I just think my money is better spent on the new mini Sonos bar (the Ray).

The sound quality is not as good as a single Sonos Play 1 or the standard Bose companion speakers - each for under this price point. Pretty disappointed.

I see there are v1 katanas from soundbalaster for a little more. I would go that direction if I want a gaming setup.
