Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Appears to be 2-channel only? I need multi-channel [nt]

I see. I have a customer who got three modded Gustard DACs from me instead of an E38. The LKS is even better. The Exasound gives you one ESS 9028 DAC channel per channel. The LKS with its mono 9038 DACs is equivalent to 32 ESS 9028 DACs in parallel (32 times more DACs in parallel).....just another world more transparent.....then there is the discrete output stages, etc. in the LKS. You could get two LKS for the fronts and center/bass and then a cheaper Sonica DAC for surround channels for the same money as a 38.

The more expensive top of the line ESS 9038 chip is essentially four 9028 DACs in parallel. Every channel is four channels paralleled.....so four time the current output and one quarter the output impedance. Hence better signal to noise and higher dynamic range. The LKS is the only DAC in the world right now with two 9038 DACs in parallel....and it comes from China and made by people who listen and tweak. Simply amazing.
