Further information:

I bought these for testing on the channel and although I'd love to keep them as a reference point for other reviews, I can't justify have them sitting in their boxes waiting for equivalent products to compare so they need to find a new home.

 

These are very lightly used - only for the review and one or two comparisons (mostly the amp). All original boxes, manuals and accessories provided (see images)

 

Happy to discuss splitting, but would prefer to keep them together as a stack.

Loved your review of this great value for money desktop combo. Excellent SQ from MQA compatible AKM4499 DAC and plenty of power from A90. Keep up the great reviews thanks Lachlan

Thanks Neil!! It's a brilliant bit of kit, particularly when running MQA (if you're into it)

 

Lots of good stuff coming in 2021!!

How is this not sold yet? I heard the d90 / a90 yesterday with Arya and Hekse and it was very good.

 

I thought the d90 is clear, precise inspite of me owning Yggdrasil for 3 years.

      Item Condition: As New; Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Bracken Ridge State: QLD Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      Purchased from Audiophile Store AU in mid-January 2021. Have included Warranty Card for future use. If you need more information regarding purchase, please message me.
       
      Condition is 'as new', or 'mint' - there are no scratches or marks on this unit to my knowledge.
       
      Supplied with the original items, including: Instruction Manual, Warranty Card, Micro USB to barrel plug 5V cable, USB A-B Cable and the remote.
       
      Original packaging is NOT available, BUT all items were sealed very tightly using a several-step process:
      1) I placed items in seal lock bags, with appropriate descriptions.
      2) I then wrapped bubble wrap around the seal lock bags and sealed the bubble wrap to the bags using masking tape.
      3) I then placed the now-sealed items into a large seal lock bag, with appropriate descriptions, before using masking tape to seal that.
      4) I used white packaging cardboard to reinforce the sides.
      5) I placed bubble wrap over the sealed large bag, before covering the bubble wrap with two rows of aircushions
      6) I then sealed the box with several rows of masking tape, which will then be covered by the label, should this need to be posted
       
      Cheers to @lenticularis for providing the following:
       
      "Like the Gieseler DAC range, uses an AKM chip (the AKM4493EQ).  Sounds extremely good for its price. 
       
      This DAC can also be powered from a power-pack or an iFi 5V supply, using the same micro-5V cable described above."
       
      Reviews of this DAC have been very impressive; although I've only tested it a couple of times, it impresses me as an inexpensive, reliable and effective product.
       
      Thanks to @Ittaku for the following specs:
       
      "Spec:
      PCM
      USB :44.1kHz-768kHz  16bit-32bit
      OPT/COAX : 44.1kHz-192kHz  16bit- 24bit

      OPT/COAX :Not supported

      DSD (DoP)
      USB : DSD64-DSD256
      OPT/COAX :Not supported

      Output Voltage:2Vrms@0dBFS
      THD+N:<0.0003% @1kHz A-weighting
      Noise:<2uVrms @A-weighting
      Crosstalk:-130dB @1 kHz
      SNR:>121dB @ 1kHz
      Dynamic Range:119dB @1kHz
      Channel Balance:<0.3 dB

      Features:

      1. AK4493 DAC chip
      AK4493 is a new generation of premium model AK4490 from AKM.
      -11 3dB :Distortion
      1 26dB* :Dynamic range
      DSD :Support DSD512
      PCM :Support 768k
      * This data is based on the MONO mode of chip, not equal to specs of E30.

      2.Supports DSD512 and PCM32bit/768kHz
      E30 uses 2nd generation XMOS XU208, USB supports up to PCM32bit768kHz and DSD512, which is far
      more than CD and SACD. We also customise the driver (for Win7 and above) from Thesycon to get a better performance with your computer.

      3.AK4118 receiver 
      AK4118 is currently the S/PDIF receiver with lowest jitter, compatible with optical and coaxial connection that support up to 24bit/ 192kHz.

      4.Commonly used inputs
      E30 supports USB, optical and coaxial inputs which cover a variety of commonly used occasions, such as computer, mobile phone OTG, digital turntable and media player, TV and set-top box.

      5.5V power supply, anytime and anywhere
      Using 5V power supply, E30 can easily access the working power supply anytime and anywhere in nowadays. You can power the E30 by USB port of computer, mobile phone charger or portable charger. When using portable charger, E30 turns into a portable DAC and bring the Hi-Res music around.

      6.DAC filter mode
      E30 is capable of providing 6 filter modes under PCM decoding, 2 filter modes under DSD decoding, which slightly adjust the details.

      7.Auto turn on/off
      E30 has auto turn on / off. It will automatically enter into standby when the input signal is lost or unavailable in 1 minute. Once detecting any signal inputs, it will turn on and switch to this input.

      8.DAC + Pre-amp application
      E30 has a built-in volume control function that can adjust the volume from -99dB to 0dB by using the remote control, so you are able to directly connect E30 to a power amplifier or active speakers, and control the volume of E30 through the remote control.

      9. Pure DAC application
      The E30 is able to fix to maximum output level so that it function as a pure DAC. In this mode, the DSD signal will bypass the DATT Soft Mute and 02 Modulator to provide pure/direct DSD performance."
       
      I thank you kindly for any interest or queries.
       
      P.S.: Don't worry how the DAC looks in one of the photos below - that's just the flash! I did that to illuminate the DAC, to prove that it was the genuine article.

      Item Condition: Some minor marks Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Seaford State: VIC Payment Method: PayPal, EFT, cash Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
      Another product that's been sitting in it's box waiting for comparison reviews so it's clean-out time.
       
      As you can see from the images, there are some signs of wear near the headphone socket and one small chip in the paint on the side, but the USB plug is still solid (like it was when new) and the device has been kept and cared for well since new.
       
      Comes with all original packaging and documents

      Topping E30 DAC with pre-amp function
       
      In excellent condition (mint, except for one small rub mark on the underside front corner - invisible when in use, see last photo).
       
      Bought from another SNA member for temporary use until I bought the new Gieseler Kompakt DAC.
       
      Like the Gieseler DAC range, uses an AKM chip (the AKM4493EQ).  Sounds extremely good for its price. 
       
      Supplied with all of the original items (USB A-B cable, Micro USB to barrel plug 5V cable, remote, and all original packaging).

    • By dr_carl
      Does anyone know why nearly every DAC that does MQA will only do it via USB input? Is there any technical reason for this restriction?
       
      If I'm limited by my streamer to digital SPDIF output then MQA decoding via USB input only is not useful.
       
      Please share your knowledge.
