This is the third CanJam event to be held in Singapore and our second time in attendance in a media capacity. This year we decided to go all in and grab a sponsorship slot because of the amazing experience of 2017.

Xduoo is an Asian electronics company that has created some fantastic mid-fi amps in the past.
This is my first experience with a Xduoo portable music player, so I was very excited to see how it stacked up against the competition out there in the sub $100usd field.
