Looks really interesting. I couldn't get their web site to work, so I found it here for sale at $1099:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001054833814.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.7e263500sDp2RJ&algo_pvid=790e9196-ae5b-435d-ad34-b7d17b7f1b2b&algo_expid=790e9196-ae5b-435d-ad34-b7d17b7f1b2b-0&btsid=0be3769015907369770097969e2177&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

 

specs and some more detail are listed there also. 

On paper it's a giant killer. Will be interesting to see how good you think it is.

Seems like some of the soldering is sloppy and the parts aren't straight. I'd be interested to hear how it deals with DSD.

Yes. The company contacted me to ask if I’d review it.

The blurb says 32 stage FIR filter. So that's rather similar to DSC1 and DSC2.

Oddly, EBay just “recommended” this DAC for me, and when I Googled it, AS seems to be the only place it’s even mentioned! Looking forward to the review.

it is likely that the dac arrives to Chris towards the end of the month ....
usually the arrival is one month after the order ....
