Default e18 DAC - 8 channels at 32bit /384 kHz

I am very excited to introduce a new member of the exa family, the e18 DAC. e18 is not a DIY product, but it is a close relative to the exaU2I. It uses a second generation USB to I2S interface and it can handle 8 channels at 384 kHz. Your support for exaU2I made releasing the e18 possible - thank you!

The e18 will help us to further develop our technology and we will make the advancements available to the DIY community.

You can find out more about the e18 DAC here.

Great news. All I need now is some 8 channel 32 bit 384KHz music to play on it. Any suggestions where I can get it from?

Thank you, Davide!

We believe that less processing is better, so we have minimalistic approach to the analogue stage and the filters. One thing worth mentioning is that there are no decoupling capacitors. The output is full range, virtually down to 0Hz.

Thank you, Zoran. The e18 DAC works with Allocator. Perhaps you've seen this guide - Using Allocator with exaU2I and Foobar 2000
exaU2I is limited to 4 channels at 384 kHz. The e18 DAC can handle 8 channels at all sampling rates.

Yes I so that,
but I didn`t express my question properly.
I mean with stand alone computer just with allocator duties and signal that came from the another one computer where cmp2 cplay (for example ) is given the signal.
So e18 is maybe going to be some kind of external interface?
From cplay comp to e18 via spdif and than again e18 usb connected to allocator comp
to make the crossover duties?
