Here is a close up of the aluminium casing of the XD-05. The finish appears to be powder coated, and the unit looks pretty durable at first glance. Perfect for hot-desking!
Turn the device on, and I’m confronted with a weird “no single” text.
Why yes, I know I’m happily married, thank you. Not sure how “No Signal” becomes “No Single", but I find this typo hilarious.
Remember back in the days the Japanese are struggling with their command of English. That was then, and here is now. History is repeating itself. How times have changed, and how nations have progress (and fallen).
Unfortunately, a quick check on the product website and it does not appear this unit is firmware upgradeable. Meaning I will be stuck with “no single” for as long as I’m using this DAC. Not a deal breaker for me at all.

hey, u still have this thing?
i think what happen is that the opamp chip needs change. Consider LME49720 if u dont fancy to do any soldering, or just buy the Burson V5i if u have budget, easier.
I crossed this text when i roll the opamp, and i think my opa1612 is bad, and got this text.

Yeah still have it. Using it mainly for work. Am considering a Burson V5i, will eventually buy one (waiting for a sitewide e-bay discount to pull the trigger).
