Looks like an interesting (and less expensive) alternative to the Pre Box S2 Digital if you don't need a headphone amp.  What is the 'in house chip' that you see?  As far as I can tell it uses an ES9038 DAC chip.

  I have no idea (hence the ?) if the Sabre chip is used. Seems like it would be in their product description. All I see is a self-developed Fpga Core "as the processing core of digital signals, which makes DSD128 via coaxial possible ." With a picture of a Maxii Cpld.

 

I was looking to replace my Dragonfly red with a Mqa capable dac. Tried qobuz and lost some of the Mqa need. Was tempted by the Project s2 previously.

 

The Dragonfly/ x7s/ Hd 6xx

I just bought one on Ebay, so when the slow boat gets here I'll give my impression.

I see the the descriptions on Aliexpress say it's es9038q2m. Thanks
