Next item up at Euphonic Review to be thoroughly tested will be a S.M.S.L D400PRO DAC.
This will be a comparison test with the Topping E70V Velvet which uses the same chipset, and I am hoping to see more than single 19khz filter for DSD64, and I may really be strectching my hopes for a DSM 'BYPASS' channel selectable for DSD files.
The brand new AKM dual chip flagship DAC, the AK4191+AK4499EX, sounded extremely promising in the Topping E70V yet had a hint of grain to it.
The AK4191+AK4499EX as implemented in the Topping is still to this day the best measuring piece of kit I have yet seen. Combine that with the fact my measuring rig is more accurate and resolute than ever. I cannot wait to get this one strapped down to the test bench next week, haha!!
