Just thought someone responding to this thread probably ought to point that out.
So true. The Chinese are known for bragging about chip used but then the parts and circuit used are not that great. That being said I have used the ones from Ready made and for their price sound pretty nice, not best but not bad for money spent.

Good to hear, it gives comfort for this purchase


Just because I am a curious person,
I might also order the 16$ one from ebay,
and then listen to both and see if there's a difference:

OK I ordered 2 DACs based on SA9023+ES9023.


The first is HiFimeDIY UAE23:
HiFimeDIY UAE23 USB DAC (ESS Sabre ES9023+Savitech SA9023)

The second is one from AliExpress (a different model than the one in the picture in the last post):
SA9023 ES9023 HIFI Audio DAC Decoder Sound Card for Power Amplifier Support 24bit 96K-in Amplifier from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group


I am curious to see what the difference between them will be.
I will use them both for several days, to let them "break in", before trying to conclude anything about their sound quality.


After that, I will also try ES9018K2M..


Thank you all for all the tips

What an extremely detailed report..
Way more than I can understand at this stage..

Have you heard it? Would you recommend it?


BTW,
the maker of that board is called Breeze Audio?

They have another board, for ES9018K2M, that's the one I plan to buy after the current one arrives..

Here it is:

I am thinking of buying the ES9018K2M board (from the same manufacturer - the one in the last link) today.

If anyone has experience with it and can say a good thing about it,
it'll be great..

OK I ordered the Breeze Audio ES9018K2M board now too ..


It's hard to resist, when something costs 16-17$.


In the past week I ordered 6 different DACs, due to curiosity about sound "taste" coming from them,
and due to really comfortable prices, as you can see.


I will post my impressions after all arrive and after I listen to each one for about a week..
