4 DACs per channel? Oh wow. Doesn't this thing only have 2 DAC chips?

Each chip is the ES9028Pro version, which are made for multi channel use, like in blu ray players and A/V receivers, with up to 8 channels, so it ends up being like 8 separate DACs that they run in 4 dual mono configurations, so 4 DACs for each channel, or something like that. The ES9028q2m chips in cellphones and the like are 2 channel, so you can run dual mono, like in the Topping DX7, one chip for each stereo channel. LOL, now I'm even confused.

The ES9028Pro is an 8-channel dac, but that doesn't mean one The way it's written is misleading as hell, and implies 8 dac chips.
I'm a fan of Gustard, don't get me wrong, but the guy writing the description should really do better. Even the specs don't link up with the product name. (X20 uses es9018, not es9028, that's X20PRO)

Yep, 9018 is in the X-20, but I just noticed that if you look closely at the pics, it says X-20 Pro. Hey Massdrop, what is it, the Pro or no?????
