I've been searching around for a Canadian made DAC, and stumbled upon exaSound who I suppose are best known for their exaU2I USB --> I2S interface.
They've apparently just released their E20 DAC, based on the infamous ES9018 Sabre chip and I can't for the life of me find any information on it. They E18 has some minor coverage, which appears to be quite positive.
The case-work looks beautiful, and I've read that their custom USB drivers are really good (from the reviews of the E18).
$2500 with a 30-day trial direct from exasound.com
The measurements they have on their website look quite promising, and I'm a big fan of the small enclosure footprint + headphone out + feature list that just focuses on sound quality from a computer source.
Has anyone heard of this company or any of their products?
