The test are finished, the new ES9018 DAC with the Amonero module is able to play 44,88,96,192,384KHz, DSD file and SACD iso images.

The firmware remap the DAC to share the same input pin for PCM and DSD without hardware changes.

We will integrate the Amonero module to get a very short I2S wire.

The ES9018 DAC will be an assembled module without output stage and it will cost about 300$, Amonero USB-I2S/DSD module cost 97$
There are 2 options for the output stage, the vaccum tube stage is very simple and it can be assembled on air without pcb.
After the first definitive test on the last pcb we think to start a list of pre-order to reduce the cost of production.

Do you think the price would go down a bit if theres a lot of interest, for the introductory price of this DAC? Can you give us the dimension of the DAC board? How about the controller module? I think that's a cool feature to include on this DAC. How much do you think would it cost?

Sorry for the asking to much question.

Thanks,

Fred
