I have paired this DAC with my HTC One M8 (Android Lollipop), which has a rather noisy headphone out for sensitive IEMs - this is especially noticeable at low volumes. Using the DAC I get a very clean sound and no audible noise! Great value for the money!
Was looking for a DAC for my Nexus 7 1st gen model from 2012. Saw a lot of expensive products, $100 or more. But I wasn't sure if I wanted to take a chance on it not being that great of an improvement. I remembered that HiFiMeDIY had some more affordable alternatives.I ordered the sabre android DAC from the US distributor and had it in hand in like 3 days.works fine with the Nexus 7 2012 tablet as long as you get the USB Audio Pro Player app.
EVERYTHING sounds better, better soundstage, better separation between channels, more detail, etc. It took my desktop set up to another level.I have Audio Technica atx700s and I don't get ear blasting volume unless I turn up the pre-amp/EQ volume on the USB Pro Audio player.
When this is plugged into your tablet you cannot charge it, so it sucks battery and you will need to work out charging versus playing music.For $30 you get a nice introduction to the world of DAC audio, and to my ear it's totally worth it.
excellent DAC, working steadily on the Lenovo p780 with usb audio player pro. High-quality sound.
suberb sounding dac, its 2 volt out drives the aux in really well , it works on perfectly on galaxy note 2 and the sony z2
excellent little dac. works with my cheapo Chinese tablet using usb udio player pro. Sound quality is right up there for something that's so small and cheap. probably best appreciated for phones/tablets with average sound quality you want to improve, as I don't think it would make a whole lot of difference to phones with a decent audio chip in them (e.g the samsungs and sonys). Remember works best with an accompanying amp.
