Default FS: ES9018 Multichannel USB DAC

I am putting up for sale my ES9018 based USB multichannel DAC.
This DAC was developed on this forum by a skilled designer.

I have been using this as a DAC for my 4-way loudspeaker with crossovers running on my PC. I am moving to a standalone DSP box, so selling this to raise some funds.

This implementation optimizes all critical aspects of a DAC to a great extent without cost constraints.
There are hardly any commercial or DIY multichannel DAC options available for PC based DSP loudspeakers. Even rarer is a product finished to this quality.


I use the excellent EXAU2I board as the USB interface to my PC. This offers galvanic isolation, FIFO buffering and reclocking of the USB stream to the DAC.
Please read about other features and details from the designer on
AAK Blackbird Multi-Channel ES9018 DAC Group Buy
My ES9018 DAC/Amp/Controller..

I spent over $1800 to finish this in late 2016.
I am asking for $800. Will also include 8x XLR balanced cables using Neutrik connectors and Mogami cable. A USB cable and power cable will also be included.

I am only able to ship within continental US or Canada. Shipping fee will be extra.

Thanks for looking.

No interest for a good multichannel DAC?
Worked great with 4-way FIR crossovers (developed on rePhase) on Jriver running on my HTPC.

OH MAN this is really tempting...

I have a NanoDIGI 2x8 4-way active system, currently using 4x CS4398 DACs, this is ALMOST what I have been looking for as an upgrade. I would need to send 4x SPDIF connections to the ES9018 board, but everything ES9018 and after is exactly what I'm looking for. Decisions, decisions...

If I bypassed the USB input, would the DAC board be able to accept SPDIF inputs for each of the 4 stereo pairs?

The DACs input is multichannel I2S. It cant take multiple stereo SPDIFs.
