Hello guys, first post here !
I can get this Dac X10 directly from China for very cheap (taobao price), since I have a lot of friends living in China and they can bring it to me.
Members Chodi and Bogi put me on Audio GD as well. So I'm also considering buying a Audio GD NFB 28 instead since it has a headphone amp as well, and from what I heard from members here Audio GD is trustworthy and they have distributors and they give warranty, as you all already know. It will be twice as much comparing to Gustard DAC X10, but I belive it's worth.
My initial intention was buying a new hi quality AD DA solution for my studio (and I was looking at Audient ID 22) for mixing & mastering, and I knew only about few commercial DAC builders like Mytek, Lavry, Behchmark, Antelope, RME etc (I personally wanted to buy Benchmark DAC1 as well) that I could hear about on music production forums, but I was researching about DACs (since I don't really care about the AD side , I belive that listening side is way more important ) and found out about Sabre chips etc and found out about whole new higher end DACs than audio interfaces that people talk about on music production forums, it's "strange" that I don't see any ADC solutions from these Chinese companies, it would be nice if someone could enlighten me if there is some.
I also see that you guys are using Sabre chips based DAC for streaming DSD file material and I don't believe that I will do that. My question is do these DACs stream PMC material as well, since most of the time as a mixing engineer I work with WAV PCM files, and should my DAW's (Cubase & Reaper) use its ASIO driver for streaming with no problems ?
If no, what would you recommend me for streaming PCM files ?
