Look at this from our perspective and consider these facts.
1) You are a new member with only a few posts.
2) You claim to have purchased this product simply because another piece of gear is out for repairs. Practically nobody does that.
3) You gush about the product as "performing flawlessly".
4) You say it performs as well as much more expensive products, but you don't say whether you have done any sort of objective A/B comparisons using any quantifiable measurements. You just stated: "is virtually indistinguishable from my other top shelf converters(Mytek, Forssell, Lavry, Lynx, and Prism)"
We are not gullible children here and everything about your post screams shill. Nobody here is acting "oddly". This is exactly the sort of reaction this type of post will receive on this forum by someone who just joined and has only a few posts.
1.) the newness of a member is not any reliable indicator of subject matter knowledge... common sense 101(although ive learned common sense is never common)
2.) it is quite common. a mobile piece of my recording rig went down, and, not being able to afford to buy a double of said unit, bought a lower cost unit to serve as a "bridge".
3.) it does perform flawlessly. objectively and subjectively.
4.) I say this, because it does. i am of the mind that any well designed, suitable dac will be transparent. and indistinghishable from any other well designed dac. my current DAC in the rig I am using the emotiva for...(mytek 192) , which is back in situ. is indistinguishable from the emotiva.
gullible? perhaps not(although with the farflung subjectivist babble touted here (such as rejoicing over cable swaps and tube rolling , i strongly suspect that it is not any bastion of scientific thought.
