I own the ES9018 which I really like. Compared to the ES9018 the sound of the UDA38Pro DAC is so much clearer and a new dimension opens. Best choice for the money.
Very nice sound !
I used output supply of DC 12V 2A.
From low to high sound area I could hear in reluctance.
This UDA38PRO is very calm
This DAC is amazing, clear, transparent, natural, warm with details, with body and incredible 3D sound.
The music literally jump in your face.
A real eargasm.
My system: Raspberry with Moode, usb cable with external low noise 5V, UDA38pro, Yamaha A-S500, Boston acustic A25.
I use external 12 V power supply.
Received it today via GLS. I'm absolutely in love with it !
Plugged it into my laptop which has Windows 10, switched the input to USB and it worked out of the box, just as advertised. Maximum format supported by the control panel is 32-bit, 384khz. I tried it also on another PC with Windows 7. Here I had to install the driver which can be found in the Support menu to get the full format support.
In comparison to my older DAC which has a dual AK4490 balanced output, this ES9038Pro feels superior and the difference is noticed already on first use. However, one missing feature for my taste is a Bass Boost functionality for which I use a Software Equalizer. For anyone using a PC, I would recommend APO Equalizer and Peace GUI.
The AMP is powerful and extremely loud, so careful with the volumes :) The volume knob is smooth and nice to operate.
The device only gets mildly warm and not hot at all, so this is great as well.
Note: I use this DAC with my Sony MDR-Z1R headphones.
