This review is from: GUSTARD DAC-X12 ES9018 XMOS Balance DAC 32Bit / 384KHz DSD DOP Decoder
Pros: Truly an amazing DAC. Timbre, Air and soundstage are rendered better than anything I have heard on my system. Compared this DAC to PS Audio DL III on my system and no A/B was necessary. It is clearly Superior.

Speakers: Martin Logan Vista
Interconnects: Audioquest Topaz
Cons: Backlighting on display only lights up upon power on. Since I leave it on, it never backlights. Backlighting should at least come back on when changing input bitrate.
That Being said, I prefer this behavior to some of the garish lighting seen on much audio equipment. For Love of Pete, can we get away from the Blue LED lighting?
Other Thoughts: will Follow up when able to compare it to other devices available to me for comparisonREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent Image quality
Heavy Duty Construction
Cons: controls clunky, but you only need to set them once
did not ding an egg for this
Other Thoughts: Bought for wife but now I want one for my rig.
Needed new KVM switch as it needs DVI dual channel to run
Pros: This is aquestion to people who own this board.
the photos show sata cable is included. There do not appear to be sata connectors on the board. Two PATA connectors are seen, but the specs say there is only one PATA channel. What kind of I/O does this really have?
Cons: cannot find the manual onlineREAD FULL REVIEW
