    I have only ever used the ZX300 as a DAP. Planning to use it as USB DAC with some headphones amps to drive the HD650. I am wondering how good it is in that role or would it be better to invest in something like a Modi 3? 3.5mm to RCA is not difficult, but the 4.4mm to RCA might be harder to build.

    If you can source a 4.4 mm cable and use the balanced out, I think that you'll be happy driving the hd650. There is plenty of volume and also some nice Sony finesse that has been missing with some of their products lately. Good pairing IMO.

    Probably have to build a cable or biy some adapter.
    I read that Torq suggested the ZX300 as a DAC is pretty good. So could be good to test if it needs an amp from balanced.
