So If I understand you corrctly,
you say that the power in the 23$ by Lee, and the power in the 40$ which I gave earluier, is the same..

So in that case, maybe it should not be a "no" after all?
If it orks good in the 23$ one, it should do similarly in the 40$ one, no?
(I ask this in order to know If I shoul try and buy the 40$ one too)

Yes
That's the 70$ one, with the 15v external power requirement..

I am not interested in that one, but in the 40$ one, USB Powered..

Its definitely a 'no' for me. That was the context, you asked if I had tried it. Its not intended to be a 'don't buy' to anyone else

Just bear in mind its also got a headphone amp inside which is powered from the same noisy USB supply. So potentially an additional downside. I can't see why it would do any better than the 4*TDA1387 model if you don't want a headamp, and if you do want a headamp you'd do better to have one which steps up the USB power and regulates it.
