Amir says this referring to the filter in his review: 'The latter is something few companies get right. Good thing as there is no way to change the filter.' I admit I don't understand that statement, since as I understand it the filters are hard-coded on the actual ESS chip, so I'm not quite sure why it would be a problem 'to get it right'. I'm sure I'm missing something, maybe you could explain???? Any Topping/SMSL/Gustard/... with an ESS Sabre DAC chip and switchable filters has the same exact filter response as the J2 here.
It's bog-standard Brick wall. Nothing special about it.
