The hip-dac is an incredible piece of gear. What it gives you for the price is a lot more than I ever expected. Cool design, solid feeling, a good amount of power, a useful bass boost function, balanced drive, nice volume knob.
The only two things I would really want to change is ditch the usb A data connection for usb C and a larger capacity battery, if it is possible without making the unit bigger.
But I love my hip-dac as it is, it’s such a neat little package.
