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. 

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

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.

is it possible to see the measurements you have taken?
can I ask how it manages the DSD?

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 ....
