These three sit at the top of my list for a cost effective upgrade to my dacmagic XS which runs out of juice too easily with low sensitivity / high impedance phones. I'm after any comparison experience, or any alternatives sub£300 for a headphone DAC amp to stream from a PC.

Not heard either however a quote might help:-

"We are super excited to share that our very own ZEN DAC is Japan's number one selling DAC for online AND offline sales."

Can you clarify as to why I might want to do that?
I would need to be convinced that it's headphone amplifier section is of the same class.
Also I cannot see an Audiolab for less than £699
An alternative to the Neo iDSD you mentioned also, rather annoyingly, I think I made a mistake on the price...
