We don't know much about this gear. Gustard X16 uses 2 DAC chips ES9068AS but this one uses only one single chip or 2?
How the output stage looks like and what about the 3rd harmonic issue the SU-9 and M500 have?

Interesting device but after the chaos with the M500/SU-9 and the way they interact with their customers, I'll wait for reviews.

I saw this review. Some of the settings options were quite intriguing. In reality, why should a user need to change DPPL settings? Does that truly contribute to a different “sound” for a DAC? It did provide some insight into DAC designer choices that might not be apparent.
