  • Q: Hi, I was looking at buying the SMSL M8A then I saw this and don't know how to decide yet. Can you tell me if the Yulong DAART Canary can has volume control on the RCA out jacks?. Ther's a shortage of reviews for the Canary but I may be willing to take a chance with it. I like the fact that it is a headphone amp as well as a DAC, but does it perform musically compared to the M8? Regards Roy
