A little Cayin N6 update - it will double as an asynchronous DAC

It's using the PCM1792A, isn't it?

 

How good is it in today's standards, I wonder?

Well, what do you mean by today's standards? It's one of the best TI chips and fiio x5 has one. The Cayin N6 will have two, so there will be one 1792A for each channel..

I meant in current competiton. I wanted that dx90 basso due to the sabre dac it sports. I.thought this aformentioned dac was better than the pcm1792a, which i did superficial research about its debut and it is two years old afaik. Not trying to downlpay it, i am just wondering how it would compare to the basso.

However, ypu said there would be 2. So I will shut up and anticipate its release before any further speculations come from my posts.

It doesn't matter how old the chip is. There are a lot older chips like the es9018, which are still considered among the best. It's all about the implementation, so we can only make guesses and speculate at this point but on paper the N6 has a ton of potential. Also, supposedly N6 will support native DSD playback, which at this moment only the AK240 and Calyx M support, so no other sub-$1000 portable DAPs.
