High priced normal delta sigma DAC from unknown China manufacturer (they made a decent digital interface and a Violectric cloned amp that is known to die prematurely). An expensive gamble with nothing particularly promising about the product at first glance, and Chinese audio brands really do skimp on build quality 99% of the time as one would expect. I don't gamble with high priced stuff. No China made product in my audio chains, much less unknown Chinese brands.

Ah we got a newbie here? Gustard, an "unknown China manufacturer"? When did they make Violectric cloned amp? Are you talking about Accurate Audio? Even so, A281 has good reputations in China and Taiwan.. donno where you got all the false information from...

Yes, Gustard popped out of the blue one day. What got them known was the H10 amp, a Violectric V220 clone that seems to have lots of premature failures not to mention that's an amp that has opamps in the signal path and who knows what other crap. Accurate Audio... ANOTHER Violectric clone? Either way they are cloning fundamentally flawed amps I'd never recommend anyway. So it sounds like you're the newbie who probably doesn't know the first thing about audio.
"good reputations in China and Taiwan..." LOL as if this means anything.

I'll give you that H10 is a clone, not into entry level amp myself. But please search "Gustard" on head-fi and see how many post you can find, also check out the x20 thread with 1200 replies and tell me again Gustard is an unknown China manufacturer. Interesting that you know H10 is a V220 clone but didn't heard much of gustard other products, maybe you only browse MD? I know people like you have bias toward Chinese stuff and I don't give a fk but please don't spread false information thank you

1) You cited number of Head-Fi posts as a reputable source. Anything else you can say on the subject is invalid, hell you didn't even know it was a clone until I enlightened you. Imagine what else I can teach you. You must only browse Head-Fi, though even the Head-Fi Gustard H10 thread mentions that it's a Violectric clone in the very first post. Head-Fi is just an uninformed hype train forum where people hype up and talk about objectively inferior crap like Gustard and Cavalli and Eddie Current back in the day, if you want to actually learn about audio try head-case forums or avsforum.
2) I called Gustard unknown because nobody knows anything about their factory, designers, staff. They don't even have a damn website you moron. Apex HiFi is known for example, as one of the two lead designers is Pete Millett, a legend in the industry who constantly puts out excellent designs. Therefore, a known brand. What does anyone know about Gustard other than their product line? So no, I am aware of Gustard's other products. Me calling them "unknown" doesn't indicate that I don't know their products, it is an informed opinion as I have just explained.
3) Bias toward Chinese stuff? You really mean to say biased AGAINST. But I just acknowledged that Audio-GD is actually above average in component quality and design quality not to mention nice interior chassis design usually. Antique Sound Labs also makes pretty decent stuff, and if you know where to look you can get some nice transformers from China believe it or not (obviously you have to sort through mountains of crap to get there though).
So you are wrong on all accounts and haven't pointed out any false information. This back and forth is just me constantly educating you.

2. I just so happen to know who is Gustard's CEO, so does a number of guys on Head-fi and Chinese forum, but of cause that doesn't mean sxxt to you e.g. " reputations in China and Taiwan..." LOL as if this means anything. " & " Head-Fi is just an uninformed hype train " 3. In your first reply you said " Chinese audio brands really do skimp on build quality 99% of the time as one would expect. " acknowledging Audio-gd doesn't cover the fact you have bias, unless you're saying you experienced 99 other Chinese companies that are crap. I don't expect to talk sense into you, just want to let other people who's reading this be less affected by your bias :)

Not head-fi.org because they delete threads and posts that expose brands that happen to be their sponsors (or companies who they just want a good relationship with which is most audio companies) because they put their business relationships before the people. And most people there just blindly follow hype trains.
Superbestaudiofriends has unknowledgeable hype trains like head-fi but they won't delete posts that expose brands, and they do have an emphasis on measuring headphones which is nice.
Head-case.org is the most knowledgeable and objective but not very active. I definitely suggest looking up amps there before anywhere else though. Avsforums has good discussion but no focus on headphones. Ultimately these two are my most visited. Audiogon and audioasylum have good technical discussions from back in the day, but aren't as active now.

I’ve had an x20 pro for over a year. Excellent device which has performed flawlessly. USB interface was a bit of a let down sonically, but i’ve since removed it and now run the DAC through the i2s port. Very happy with the sound and quality of this unit. Great flexibility as well as I use both the balanced and single ended outputs to drive various headphone amps outputting to my Focal Utopias. I was sceptical at first when, but now I wouldn’t have any issue in purchasing another Gustard product. This is just from my experience and I don’t claim it as a consensus

I listened to quite a few DACs, these include the Gustard, Dragonfly Red, Mojo, Hugo 2, Oppo HA-1, QED Digit, GroB, Modi, Bifrost, Brooklyn and probably another half dozen on top of that. All had their strengths and weaknesses and out that list I ended up with the Gustard, Dragonfly red and 2 x QED Digits. Dragonfly is a great and cost effective mobile solution. The Digits, once modified, are a excellent sounding DAC and can be picked up cheaply from eBay. And the Gustard was brought on a whim. Out of the box I was a little disappointed with the Gustard, it wasn’t until I removed the USB interface and connected it to my media pc via the i2s port (media pc has a Pink Faun pci-e to i2s card), that this DAC opened up. My source chain is Roon->Pink Faun interface->Gustard->Hybrid Tube Headphone amp->Utopia. Since them I’ve had the opportunity to audition several other DACs, and none to me seem worth the upgrade. Taken quite a few years to end up with this gear and I don’t see it changing anytime soon.

Built like a tank? I have a feeling you are referring to the chassis, not its internal component quality combined with temperatures which is the typical cause of failure for modern day class AB solid state amps.
Also are you asking about this DAC regarding price?

Millennials paving the way for our future! Much better than being jaded and unable to let go of old ideas. Also you must have a very strong opinion of me if you think I am representative of an entire generation. I am flattered.
Reading comprehension clearly isn't your strong suit, and you definitely know what it's like to be a pretend know it all. I'm skeptical of Gustard due to the reputation and copycat nature of the H10 (and the fact that they copied a Violectric amp of all amps) and also the tech in their DACs, but that has nothing to do with Audio-GD offering excellent budget products. Audio-GD actually charges less for their products than what it'd cost us to build it ourselves, not that you'd know anything about that.

Just a bit of a tiff with an "Oracle" who knows it all. Not too lively, yet anyways lol. I've only been into HiFi for about 2 decades and he's been on Earth barely 2 and a half decades lol. So yeah. But again hard to reason with people like that. Tells me I'm old therefore stubborn and stuck in my ways. Oh and alluded to his great "success" and that I "wished I could have afforded what he can at his age, 24" lol. Of course I mean I am way below the poverty line, having a trust fund is tough now-a-days lol. But his assumptions not mine. I was introduced to HiFi by my father when I was about 10, got really into at 15. And yet he knows everything but has been called out a few times for being a "newbie" and not by me mind you. But I digress and now acknowledge his omnificence! I sure could learn a thing or two from him. Gives me goosebumps for him to comment on my apparently POS Woo Audio headphone amp. I was just absolutely enamoured and felt so privileged he even responded to my post. Just in awe of him.... 🤗🤗

I know the matching amplifier that has balanced inputs and outputs is supposedly fantastic from the few people I trust that own it. So, I could only hope that the DAC pairing is as good or equivalent for a source. I know custard has put out some really good mid fi gear and are trying to enter the high fi and high end playing field like brands like Cayin and Aune did. I hope some but it and give some good impressions and comparisons work more well known equipment.

Imho there are a lot of very good amps at or under $1000 these days - including several from Massdrop, Schiit, and the THX and Liquid Platinum, depending in part on whether you're looking for solid state or tubes, and whether you want to drive high impedance headphones, low, inefficient headphones, or pretty much everything. So without more info, it's really difficult to provide useful answer(s) .. As a SS all arounder, the Gustard H20 is worth considering, partly due to matching form factor, depending on you price range and preferences (and comfort level with Gustard of course).

My DAC of choice around this price range would be a used Chord Qutest. Having used some really high end traditional delta sigma DACs, R2R DACs, and Chord DACs, to my ears Chord is the only one who gets it 'right' and they are definitely the most transparent.
Also before getting a Cavalli amp, please read the Cavalli Liquid Carbon, Liquid Carbon X, Cavalli Tube Hybrid, and Liquid Lightning threads on head-case.org. Skilled engineers open them up and analyze them, effectively exposing them.

Read his responses to Mattttt way up in this thread. If you want a real answer ask someone who maybe oh graduated from MIT with Electrical and Audio Engineering under his belt, has owned far more Hifi products than he ever will, and was buying his first B&W 801's when Rhamnetin was about 4 years old. Take what he says with a Nano grain of salt. Trust me on that one. Cheers

Yeah read the previous posts, they make everything very clear. You praise your supposed MIT background but can't even engage in simple technical discussion, all you can do is talk about price and brands while dodging all technical and objective discussion I raise. You talk about cutting and pasting (and meant copying and pasting) yet the only time you tried to address my argument was copying and pasting a link to a video about amp classes, but couldn't even discuss what was in the video. How many amps or preamps have you built? You bought a Woo Audio WA7 and tried to show it off... that says it all. Your profile description reeks of insecurity.
As I said earlier, I've met MIT graduates who can't figure out how to light a bulb with a 9v battery. You certainly do seem on that level.

Again same argument you have used here and other threads. Too much of a p**** to go to forum where I can wipe the floor with you. And your "argument" of how many amps I have built: Irrelevant; I've rebuilt more car engines than you have owned cars, and I don't say that because I've done so I know more about it than someone who has built one. So once again a ridiculous and ignorant argument. Go back to your ANTIFA meetings, and your Liberal BS. I was never asked advice, therefore your BS theory that I didn't "engage" because I don't engage with c you next Tuesdays. I never showed off a cheap amp, and never purported that it was the best by any means. So again, go back to the playground where you belong and STFU, unless you can man up and take this to a forum where you'll be put in your place. Nothing but a useless SJW hiding behind his keyboard, and because he has no life, spends his time reading his "Bible" AKA online forums, doesn't make you an expert at anything what-so-ever, but if we must all continue to bow to the all knowing Rhamnetin, we then we will do so. But we all know the type. So don't pretend you are something you are not. And I'm sorry your community college, if that, education hasn't fared so well for you, but that's your issue. Another Zeo's wannabe, which is to say another brain dead social reject who wants others to fund his lifestyle.

There are a few I'd absolutely recommend without any hesitation.
One of the best,and most versatile would be the Sprout 100 (designed by an audio legends son, Scott McGowan, his father Paul is a family friend, so maybe a slight bias) but truly a extremely well rounded dac/amp. Many use it just for headphones but can easily be used as an all-in-one for a 2 channel setup as well. I've found that while it does easily power most PM headphones, the midrange can become a bit lost; but with dynamic headphones it's amazing. Obviously at the top end of your budget, but due to its versatility, it can really be a great product. Also handmade in CO.
Next I'd say the Audeze Deckard. Obviously an amp biased for its own headphones, but plenty of low end grunt and enough power to power the most difficult to drive cans. Extremely subtle but a very balanced and warm amp as well.
Arcams rHead is also one great amp and about half your budget, but there isn't a built in DAC with this one, but probably one of the best sounding amps for under 1k. It's a very clear and focused amp which I've found to be one of the more natural sounding ones around. In essence you hear what the artist intended you to hear. But some people don't like the lack of over accentuated lows to highs. More of an old school amp imho.
Burson Audio Conductor V2 is one helluva amp/dac. It has a Sabre32 DAC, which is pretty amazing. You should be able to find this in the States for under a grand.
Simaudio Moon Neo 230HAD another great versatile amp/DAC et cetera. Very linear and warm sounding, and an amazing low end. Not quite the clarity you'd expect at its price, but what it lacks in that aspect, dynamically is amazing. Now the last two I've mentioned would be pushing your budget, but easy to find on sale.
Schiit Audio Lyr 3 Hybrid with your choice of optional DAC (should come in around 1k) I've only listened to it a few times but was blown away. For the price probably once of the best hybrids out there.
Schiit Jotunheim Balanced amp with your choice of a DAC, Phono or Multibit DAC. Another amazing product from Schiit. Mike Moffat is what Rhamnetin thinks he is lol. He's a brilliant guy who can make these amps compete with ones costing 10 times what they cost. One great thing about Schiit is 98 percent of every component they use is made in the US. While many audio firms make their products in the US,not every single bit of say an amp is made in the US; a DAC may be made elsewhere, but Schiit is committed to everything locally sourced. And it shows. This is one of my favourite amps for under 5k. It's truly amazing. Punchy, transparent, dynamically sound, amazing build quality and an amazing warranty if that matters to you.
A Woo Audio WA7 is also a great tube amp,but I'd only recommend it if you can swing to also get the WA7tp PSU, as the standard PSU isn't the best and it does lack the deep lows you'd expect from a tube amp. The sound is "cooler" than most tube amps, which is a personal preference, but it's a great combo.
The Woo WA3 and WA6 are also excellent as well,minus the DAC, which may blow your budget. The oversound are very similar amongst the Woos, so it's all dependant on what you like. One issue is tube rolling is pretty much impossible with the Woo Audio tube amps, so if that was something you'd be into, scratch that off your list.
Little Dot, although Chinese do indeed make some decent gear for the price. I'd say if you wanted to start with a very inexpensive tube amp, and roll, and play around,I'd say to try one out. If you buy direct, Yang usually offers a lifetime warranty, only caveat is you must pay shipping back to Shenzen I believe after the first 2 years. But it's a definite showing of confidence in his products. And they are a tube rollers dream. Granted I wouldn't get anything below a MKIV, although Chinese made, their components are very high quality, and they do give mainstream manufacturers a run for their money. I have a Little Dot MK VIII SE which is a great little amp for under 1k, and I use it mainly to compare with other amps I've been buying, and it can definitely hold its own. Don't confuse it with a McIntosh MC275, but for its price, cool little thing.
Hope some of this helps, of course everyone has their own preferences and I'd suggest to find a good hifi dealer than has a generous return program, or even has loaner products you can try out and if they don't work for you, you can return them.

Well, you've done it. The thought of building my own amp coupled with the reviews for Bottlehead have me jumping for the Mainline. Thanks for this. I'd never heard of it previously. Just the more "mainstream" stuff. I'd love to own a Chord Dave someday...

I didn't post the WA7 to show off. Its a piece of architecture, and hence the photo. I guess I could start posting like I do on Instagram, but this really isn't the forum for such. And I'll leave it at that. Cheers
And hope it helped some SchrodinStein
