Signature Shangling sound (very wide) in a budget!!

This dac/amp sounds much wider than its competitors at this price point. Spatial soundstage presentation is great. As much as I like ifi's burr brown sound, I like the soundstage depth and wide presentation of this AKM chip more. The sound is kind of V shape and it is very enjoyable to listen to, not at all boring as in some akm chips which are very analytical sounding.
The balanced output has much more power than any iem would require. It can drive my Sundaras perfectly at 90% volume. There is a difference in the tonal profile of the balanced and unbalanced output. The balanced sounds more wide and crispier, while the unbalanced port sounds a bit warmer, more intimate or closed in and a bit laid back. Vocals have more body in the unbalanced port but there is more air and texture to vocals in the balanced port. These were the differences I could hear. I use them balanced mostly.
Theaudiostore recommended this dac/amp to me with the aria 2 and while I have the ifi go link, these pair much nicer to the arias and makes the audio experienced more open and beautiful. Nice work Shangling and also theaudiostore.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our Shanling UA3 Portable USB DAC & AMP! We're glad to hear that you like the sound of this DAC/amp, and we're glad that it performs well compared to other budget-friendly options available on the market.
