Hello Audiogoners, This is considered far and wide to be the strongest value in a DAC currently available in the marketplace.
There is a big buzz surrounding this piece as no DAC has been built this well or sounded this good for under $10K. I have one in my rig and it is very close, in fact too close for comfort to my $16K Rockna Wavedream Sig, and $20K Vermeer Two.
The long and short is that this is an audiophile purist DAC being sold to you direct from the factory, and truly, effectively cutting out dealer margin. So far it has beat out every DAC I have under $10K which includes MSB Analog, Metrum Acoustics Adagio and LessLoss Echoes end to name a few, . It is an R2R discreet circuit and fully differential. (true balanced ) You also have the choice to make this DAC NOS by pressing a button. Furthermore it has both HDMI and RJ45 i2s input. There is a button on front that actually changes the wiring of those jacks just to make sure it works with whatever i2s protocol your source uses.
This product is not like the China product you know. This is a new level of quality that truly has a strong value and real high end performance. I am here as the USA representative. So you do not have to concern yourself with sending money to China, then waiting for 2 weeks until your product ships then having to deal with shipping back to China for any sort of Warranty return. I offer a white glove full USA warranty. This means we come pick it up, as I think its ridiculous when something breaks within the first 6 months and the mfg expects the customer to carry it to UPS and ship back using their own money.. So you will receivea USA Warranty and buy from a USA seller with a proven track record of service excellence and honest business practice. The brand new DAC then ships to you direct from Hong Kong. Essentially its a no brainer.
Its the best way to know you are getting a new unit with all of the latest revisions.
Dont even second guess this one. Trust me. This is the DAC to get, hands down if you are in the $3 to 5K part of the market .. You simply dont need to spend more to get the high level DAC any longer
