    Not entirely, the topology or the circuit, the literal network of components will have an immediate impact on how the DAC both performs and ultimately sounds. Think of it this way, the 9018 is a cut of meat, the Topology of a circuit is how you "cook" that cut of meat. So yea your getting same cut of meat with both products but the preparation is entirely different

    I'll take a better picture tomorrow when I'm home, I forgot to snap one rushing out the door this afternoon. This is what I have for now.

    The ESS Sabre chip is underneath that board and you would need to remove the USB controller board to take a picture of it.

    Here are some pictures that will be included in my review:

    I'd say is all about implementation. The chip itself matters less. Still a good chip however each section is quite strong from my testing. I was surprised to be honest.

    I think the mic section looks pretty cool, so far I have been using my computers internal realtek for mic usage.
