I own this model and disagree with the conclusion. Not only does it have more features than any DAC in its class, the HDMI input makes it possible to listen to the latest HD Audio Blu-ray concerts, none of the other DACs in this price range can do that. The original uncompressed LPCM 24/192K soundtrack with full bandwidth and dynamic range can be heard, only over HDMI v1.3.
The comparison to other DACs sonically is fake, nobody can hear the differences between all the good DACs in double blind AB tests, they are all great. The reviewer was simply unkind to a brand he didnt know, shame on him. This is a great DAC, nothing better for the money.
We only report as we find. We've also been aware of the Lindy brand for a number of years now, so the less than positive review isn't due brand status.

The uPlay Plus sounds disappointing and doesn’t offer great value for money
As gorgeous on the inside as it is on the out, the One (M8) doesn’t put a foot wrong, which makes it a very desirable handset indeed
A stunning looking speaker, but one that doesn’t have the ‘wow’ sound or usability to boot
