However, for around $1,000 one could diy an AK4499 board that would almost certainly sound better.
Unless this is early 90's, one properly functioning DAC sounding better than another properly functioning DAC has been debunked by level matched double blind listening tests.

I doubt you can cite one level matched double blind listening test of DACs that's false. You don't like the result but you can't find a fault, can you?

Could you possibly define properly functioning.

+1. The definition needs to allow anyone to determine whether any given DAC meets the criteria for entry into the category of 'properly functioning'.

You both have been on this forum for very long time. For you to ask such novice question is very suspicious.
To give you the benefit of the doubt, measurements of typical DAC shown on Stereophile site will help you.

Do you not think you might be missing the point of the excercise vis-a-vis these dacs and other audio gear ?

You didn't even bother to look at the measurements of typical DAC shown on Stereophile site, did you. No effort then, a.k.a. trolling.

Any audio gear. Within the context of entertainment, beyond a certain point the numbers are moot and DBT is irrelevant. If I don't like it, I don't like and if I do, I do. I would imagine that goes for many other listeners as well. The primary objective is to please me, the end user, and if in doing so the numbers mob and the DBT clowns are happy that's all to the good. If not,...
