    Maybe we should get twins, to really guarantee the separate signal paths.

    @ChaChaRealSmooth Pics or it didn't happen. Is this a portable or desktop setup?

    As long as the pee pee has dos cajones it should be balanced by default.

    Should’ve compared it to your ass, because the E30 is ass. Would’ve been a fairer comparison.

    What is the warmup period for Pee-Pee DAC? Topping needs no warmup period.

    What sort of transport best optimizes the Pee-Pee?

    The E30 warms up (read, fries) your headphones quickly, in that case it definitely needs no warm-up.

    For this thread to be useful, subjective impressions should be sought from independent, experienced users of both units. And if additional testing is to be performed, it might be best done double-blind.

    The last time I went into something double-blind, it turned into a taste test...



    wait what?

    I'm not going to lie, mono-dac pee pees are when shit just gets weird.

    You would think, but you're still forcing a balanced load into a single-ended output. At least with dual-pee pees, you can handle every input the amp has.

    At least the E30 has a sturdy, full-size rear entry USB port. Should be good for a minimum of 1000 insertion cycles.

    Great review! I am just slightly concerned about the E30. How many Hi Res does it have? I only see one in the picture, do you think that is enough or should I get some more aftermarket stickers?

    Topping should slap a Pink Panther Seal of Approval sticker on it.

    I find myself highly amused and more than a bit horrified that our board has been mentioned in this thread!

    April 1st can be hit or miss. I guess I wasn't thoroughly enraptured by @ChaChaRealSmooth 's pee pee to get into this.

    Now please do a comparison of a Topping PA3 to your balls.

    edit: just one ball, since you would test with just one speaker.

    We can do better than mere pictures.

    @ChaChaRealSmooth, please pack you Pee-Pee and send it to @rhythmdevils so that he can do an unboxing video.
