Description

For sale is the Gustard X20U DAC; please note that this is the original non-Pro version using the ESS9018. Also note that this unit does NOT have a USB controller built in. This unit DOES support DSD512 with the correct I2S interface, confirmed personally. NOTE: DSD512 playback often begins with a loud static noise which dissipates and disappears after 10-20 seconds. All other data rates are flawless. Included are:

The DAC unit.

Remote control (with battery installed).

A power cable.

Original box.

UNUSED warranty card.

GUTB’s mods (read below).
