Hi HiFiGO,

Will this HiBy FC3 be able to power the power hungry Kinera Nanna and TinHiFi P2?

Mats Neander - February 24, 2021

The text says it can be used w smartphones, but the image shows it connected to a laptop. What about using it for, as example, playing MQA/Tidal from a desktop, via the 3,5mm line out, to a standard hifi amplifier? Will volume, if this kind of set up is feasible, be adjusted only at the computer´s controls?
