  1. Brian, thanks, you too. I came to this forum because interested in DACs from Gieseler Audio. If you look into the provided links you see that they spend "extreme" efforts to get the software right as well. It is a combo of a special stripped Windows professional server version and JPlay. No Linux at all. Best Matt
  2. Please compare this price to prices of MSB DACs and you will see that it is not embarrassing. So far all failed to approach the SQ of the Taiko Extreme. There is a thread about it here: https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/ A very good report about the Taiko Extreme is here: https://www.monoandstereo.com/2020/02/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-experience.html#more Matt
  3. Hi Clay, is there any chance to save some costs with the option of a simple case, like Klein III DAC? I must say I like very much this minimalist Klein DAC case, much more than the case of the Fein DAC. Thanks Matt
  4. Wow Clay, this is what I would call an explanation!!! Thanks, btw did you try AK4493 with the Groß transformers, so the better chip with the probably better transformers? Anyway I am curious what kind of transformers you will use for the AK4499 DAC. All the best for your work on the new DAC. Matt
  5. Hi Clay, nice to hear that you can use transformers with current output DACs as well. Maybe you can answer the question why the Groß DAC has been discontinued? The Groß had the best and biggest Jensen output transformers with the best bass response and lowest distortion while the Fein uses IIRC smaller transformers with inferior specs. So I think there is a gap which only a AK4499 DAC can fill but at a much higher price. Thanks Matt
  6. Hi Clay, thank you for sharing the info. What do think about the SQ? Is the SQ worth the triple price of your existing top model? What about the output stage, AFAIK transformers are not possible because of the current output? Greetings Matt
  7. Hi Clay, what about the AK4499 DAC? Any news? Thanks Matt
  8. For all who are interested the first big post on diyaudio: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/314935-es9038q2m-board-461.html#post5841340 Matt
  9. Hi Clay, on diyaudio appear the first listening impressions with the AK4499 Evaluation board: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/digital-line-level/314935-es9038q2m-board-457.html#post5830912 Do you have one? Best Matt
