Exclamation GUSTARD DAC-X10 DAC ES901 (Support DSD)

gustard dac-x10 dac es9018

USB 2.0 interface can replay 1BIT/2.8224MHz or asynchronous sampling rate of 5.6448MHz DSD digital signals.
Who had the chance to listen this DAC?
What is the real ability to reproduce true DSD and how it can be modified? Thank you!

Hi, I bought one quite recently. It is very nicely built and sound great to my ears. Very detailed and transparent. I have not tried any DSD material yet. PCM up to 24/384 works well. Mine has a 100Mhz clock in it although the ebay pictures show 80Mhz. I modified it with a LL1674 OPT in 4:1 stepdown.

Hi again, I can confirm that both DSD64 and DSD128 files work (using JRiver). I also tested DXD (PCM 24/352.8), also plays fine!

I have a few questions!
01) Do not Have You Tried use fubar plugin for playback DSD?
02) What DAC-s you have to compare?
03) As I understand it, DSD works through usb?
04) What drivers are used for usb?
And I would like you to describe the basic components of the system!

1) nope, but i'm sure that will work.
2) with Lars Dac1 mkII. The Gustard is much better IMO.
3) yes, this should be the way it works DoP open Standard | DSD-Guide.com
4) the XMOS driver

Dear All
This DAC does not decode DSD on the fly. I had to download foodbar and SACD decoder to play SACD via USB on this DAC. As for the performance the sound is a little on the brighter side and sounds amazing. Drawback - no power switch . Shipping also did not include a power cable or product brochure

This DAC decodes DSD. You need tyo configure your media player to send DSD stream to your DAC, that's so for each DSD capable DAC. The power switch appears on the back side near the mains cable plug. My shipping contained mains cable, although not for my trerritory. That's not so important for me. I agree, product brochure in English could be available. I found Chinese PDF on internet and used pictures from it to configure DSD playback in Foobar2000.
I consider the sound signature to be neutral ... I don't like too bright sound and I really like the sound of X10.

Hi, I bought one from doukmall on ebay.co.uk. Sold from UK, fast delivery, no customs etc.

Mine has 100 MHz clock too. Very nicely built.
