1. With Chromecast
"This DAC packs a lot of value for under $200. Clean, quiet and a big improvement in a device's internal DAC. I am using it for a Chromecast Audio, which has a usable DAC for a $25 streamer. However there is a noticeable improvement with the Topping E30."
2. As a triple threat
"I own three of these. One I use with TV/DVD players. one with a desktop computer system, and one with my main audio system. In the latter, I use the E30 in DAC only mode connected to a Placette audio volume control, and an old QUAD 909 power amp. Good enough for me. End game."
3. As a replacement for Windows on-board chipset.
“Working really well. Sounds a lot more clear than Windows through on board chipset. Can't wait to test it out some more.”
4. With Apple Airplay
“Works great - noticably better sound when routing the airplay through the optical line from my Apple Airport express.”
5. With vintage gear
“Sounds great, makes vintage Toshiba receiver and Mach II speakers come to life [...] So good, the price is a joke.”
6. To create more audiophiles (mwahaha)
“The audio quality is so fantastic that I had shared it with other family and they also couldn't believe it. I might have created more audiophiles that night!”
7. With a TV
“I have the E30 connected to my TV's SPDIF output. I can now get high quality, low noise audio from the TV along with volume control.”
