Drives my Sundara's with no problem and remarkably detailed sound.
I bought this and a $30 2.5mm cable to try out balanced audio in order to get more out of my Shure SE846 IEMs. I had been using a stock 3.5mm unbalanced cable before and a few different USB-C DACs. Focusing on the balanced vs unbalanced sound, if that's what you're considering, I am very satisfied with the difference. Using 24/96 FLACs and TIDAL masters, I noticed a bigger soundstage and more isolation overall using this compared to the sound over the stock cable and even a much beefier amp. Quieter background parts leap out with remarkable clarity. It's very small and light, with an overall high-quality feel, but I'm a bit worried about the short cable guards. Software-wise, TIDAL had no problem detecting it and auto-selecting the proper format on my Mac, and ditto USB audio player pro on my android phone. The shipping updates page didn't work, but it arrived in just under 2 weeks.
The app doesn't work and crashes on the my android 10 phone despite the fact that the app description says so. Be sure to check it before you buy if you want UAC.
