This dongle is inexpensive and sounds fantastic! Masterfully detailed, strongly paced and dynamic. With headphones the volume level can be very loud and impressive. I can't think of another dongle that sounds this good at this low price... Just get it!
Got the 9038D in December. LOVING it, great clean dac . Using with redmi note 9 pro, no problems at all except EMI interference only when 4g data turned on. Staticv3 on discord helps every one with query and I suggest every E1da user should go there regarding any problems.
I did the y splitter cable mod (explained in website and discord) in order to use powerbrick with Shanling M0 as it cannot solely power the dac. By doing and a/b'ing I have noticed a slight improvement in sound separation in instruments than using C to C cable on M0 , phone and Laptop (I think even lower noisefloor? ). The difference is very less that you might not notice it unless looking for it, but I thought its worth mentioning. While using c to c with phone is a portable setup but using with powerbank its not.
A quick comparison between M0 sound and 9038D would be that latter got better bass, more spread out presentation, more separation between instruments which provides over all better 3d illusion. M0 have slightly sharper and forward treble while e1da got more detailed and pleasant treble. I still like the sound of M0 but 9038D is better in all ways.
Headphone/iem used- Blon bl03, bl01, Tanchjim O2 and Sundara (yes It powers Sundara and sounds good but still, an amp is suggested)
While ordering I asked linsoul to send split cable as well as C to C because there was no option to add both. They send it in my other order which is highly appreciable, great service keep it up! 9038D is absolutely amazing dongle dac and I recommend it.
I used to own 9038SG3, but after selling out all the power hungry headphones, I sold it too, but I still need some kind of DAC at home for different scenarios. Here goes 9038D, it's just awesome, for 99$ you get S tier DAC with A++ tier HP amplifier, this thing outperforms almost any portable player and most pure DACs below 399$ in terms of Hi-Fi quality. Using it with Tin Audio P2, kinda ultraportable couple with top tier sound.
The E1DA 9038D is a powerful and fantastic sounding dac/amp. It does everything well except for one. It doesn't accept trrs headphone jacks. I can overlook this one flaw because the E1DA sounds so good. It's even powerful enough to drive the HD6XX to very loud levels. Very satisfied.
Sounds amazing, especially given it's small size and price. Also really impressed by it's build quality. Been working perfectly so far!
Nice device. Sounds great!
After 1 powerdac v2 and 9030S bought one for single ended use. Quality is the same as 9038S so it is just excellent
I received the item very quickly (2 weeks) and carefully packaged. Linsoul kept me well informed about the shipment. The product came in excelent condition and the first hearing impressions of E1DA 9038D are realy amazing!
Nevertheless, I must also totally agree with the very detailed and knowlegeable opinion of Kevin C below, about the limitations in the user friendly (and not only) experience, mostly concerning the loudness asjustment. I connected relative sensitive and low impedance headphones (Etymotic ER4) and the default maximum output was dangerously loud, as Kevin states. Unfortunately I dont know how to adjust a lower volume limit (apparently through the Tweak app).
Having sad that, the sound of the sound of this mini dac is realy amazing, the clarity and the details, as well as the power that delivers!!
delivers enough power but i dont like the cable and the usb port ist wobbly
The sound quality at least, is by far the best I've come across in a device of this size or price. By that metric alone, it's a great value and highly recommended. However, there are some issues with the usability that I can't overlook. Unfortunate as it is, the clumsiness of the user experience casts a shadow over the brilliance of the technical achievement in the hardware. The device needs a bit of tinkering to set up for use, and the default maximum output (for most headphones), is dangerously loud. Thankfully, it's adjustable to a lower limit--quite a nice feature, actually.
By default, following two minutes of silence the device will switch to a standby mode to limit unnecessary power draw. This is a nice feature, but the device pops incredibly loudly every time the switch occurs, to the point where, until I found an alt firmware to disable the standby feature, it disincentivized me from using the thing at all.
The other issue, and one I suppose I simply have to accept, is the volume control. See, the volume changes in such large steps that a one click difference on a phone can easily be the difference between a bit too loud and a bit too quiet. The other consequence of this coarseness is that the bottom 50 out of the 100 steps of the volume slider are effectively useless--the lower half of the controllable range amounts to, essentially, varying degrees of unlistenably quiet.
Being that the device appears to be designed as a simple, no-nonsense solution to high quality audio, to me the device only delivers on half of the promise and as such I can only cautiously recommend it, and only until something else can deliver a comparable sound quality with a better user experience at the price.
