Number of DSD recordings in my colection is zero ... I'm more interested how it sounds with regular stuff.

I listened the Chinese AK4396 board.. after that, I heard the same chip implemented correctly, the difference is huge..

Possibilities which AK4490 offers are enormous, native DSD is only one of them..
Read the pdf and you'll see just how many things is on this desperate board is left out..

This is like saying "I drove a Russian car and it was terrible. After that I drove a French car with the same engine and it was much better. Therefore, there is no possible way that this other Russian car, made by some different company, from a different design and parts, can be any good."

The logic is just non-existent.
