I was introduced to the Cayin range a few years ago when looking for a new DAP i was pointed to the Cayin N5, this was a great DAP but after a few month broke and the supplier had no other stock so i took the opportunity to upgrade to the N6 again th...Read moreis was a very good player and i had this for over a year until i got a Mojo that is and started using my phone. This was fine but a good solution to me so i started looking for a small DAP, AMP3 where the stockists this time and the pre & after sales service has been great with questions answered quickly and i was kept informed with regards to stock.
I considered the Hidiz AP60 but reviews were not that great and was about to buy a Shanling M1 until i saw that Cayin were releasing a small DAP. So as im a fan i went with this and im so glad i did. The N3 to me is very close to the N5 sound wise, it can drive my Audeze Sine on the medium gain setting to a decent volume where i dont need to go into high gain. The bluetooth function works flawlessly connecting direct to me Onkyo BT H500 headphones as a bonus i can also stream music from my phone via bluetooth to wired headphones which sounds very good. Output to Mojo again works without issue.
As an added bonus the customer service from Cayin on head-fi is also second to none in my experience.
Have a look on head-fi there are much better and more knowledgeable people there that have reviewed this from a sound / audiophile perspective.
All i can say is that no one would be disappointed in purchasing this little cracker It has all the functionality you could ever need and for me and my usage is a Chord Poly killer.
