[DAC REVIEW] Weilang Audio DC-100 Dual AK4497 + Dual Talema PSU

Hi amigos,

Let me share my test of the Weilang Audio DC-100 DAC.
This is an awesome dual AK4497EQ Dac with a dual Talema linear PSU.

This is the top version of WA DC-100, with Nichicon caps and hi ends audiophile components. The DAC allows you to use 4 digital filters via the OLED control panel.

Setup test :

- TPA3255 Amplifier with updated OPA 1622 + Linear PSU (handmade see pictures)
- Weilang Audio DC-100 DAC
- HTC 10 Audiophile phone APTX
- Hi end floor speakers 2.5 way, 93DB @ 120W RMS handmade in France

Out of the Box :

Test with the Slow Roll digital filter + TPA3255 OPA1622 Amplifier : sounds amazing ! Via the Bluetooth APTX + HD Audio files 24 Bit (Hi res. streaming) : great dynamic, sharp and very articulated sound. Soundstage is fantastic (AK4497 help). The combo TPA3255 + AK4497 works really nice. From Jazz to Classical music files, we can ear all the details, fingers sliding on guitars, cymbals articulation, accurate voices etc...
Seems to be a great DAC but need to burn it and test with other digital filters.

I did not test via the Amanero USB port... next step )

- Dual AK4497EQ audio Chip

Please, don't buy Weiliang's any product.
Look at the "NOVA" cap, it's fake, made in China.

The MUSE03/02.........fake.

Also, they hacked the Amanero USB interface, clone them for many. That's why you can buy these Chi-fi for incredibly low price.
This is kind of IP hacking.
This is not good, because in the future there will be nobody wanting to design more product, as they will soon be cloned and hacked by Chinese and sold for 1/2 or 1/3 price.

Please, don't buy any Weiliang product. There's quality is really low, and chekout AudioScienceReview, Weiliang is just stacking components together to make sounds. The result? oh dear, that's even far more worse than FE edition with a lot of low-grade engineering error.

I am really suprised... but important info.
Can you show those Nova caps?

My god... how comes it sounds good for me ? Can you give me the link to the AudioScienceReview ?
