Pros: All About Quality, Gamer Friendly.
Cons: Remote Control is Not Standard, No Coax Input, Price is a bit high compare to competition.
All of my rating is base on build, sound quality and price to performance ratio.
Too many DACs in the price range to choose from and it is tough to compete with what others are offering in the same price range with comparable build/sound, more standard accessories and features, some have better sound quality out of the box, such as xDuoo XA10 but what I like about Playmate 2 is easy to listen, love the OpAmp upgrade though.,
Good sound cost money but at what cost? I think something like Topping E30 is better buy for what we can get for the price and sound quality ratio but some may prefer playmate 2 which is still solid performer If you don’t mind paying extra. That’s my honest opinion.
Detail video review and Op Amp upgrade.

Hey! Only Option To Listen YouTube Sound Demo is with good headphones, not your favorite sound system because listening to two rooms at once is not a good thing, no matter how good your sound system is.,
