searching in chinese, there are quite a lot. DA9 5980rmb , DA10 6999rmb https://item.jd.com/11996804199.html
https://www.tmall.com/mlist/regular_CDNYiyAIlKE_m-5WBHxznw.html This review states that https://kknews.cc/zh-hk/digital/a8xjomg.html
https://kknews.cc/zh-hk/digital/nppnx32.html it is only around $6k rmb The marketing of chinese company are similar; they claim that the original price is high, but the discounted price is its Msrp.

I wonder how they come up with the specs. How can SNR be negative?

The noise level is always measured below 0 which is usuallyfull rated output. sometimes is just given with a second reference level. hope this helps... 😊

SNR can be expressed as the difference between power of signal in dB and the power of noise in dB. So -130 dB of SNR actually means that the signal is deeply buried in the noise. Who would knowingly advertise their product like that?

So many pics of the front and zero of the back. Anytime I look at any audio offering, I only care about what's on the back.

You are supposed to pay no return $825 without seeing the back :-)

  1. Why are there no pictures of the back?
  2. Why is the power supply internal?

What do you think is wrong with internal supply? A good toroidal or O-type transformer is very good, better than a lousy switching supply (not that there are no good external supplies).

True that but the cost of it direct from China is about $1,200!! this one is more affordable still a good value? That’s what I really want to know maybe read a credible review ....

Even DA9 MD price is lower than directly buying in China (exchange rate considered). The reviews of this unit on Chinese Hifi forums are pretty good, or at least very positive. But you can’t always rely on reviews...especially for Hifi products.

As per numerous comments down below, I'm struggling to see the justification for the price given the apparent build construction and lack of provenance here. I see the high power output, but its more than I'd ever use. Am I missing something here?

Way too pricey for chi-fi, IMO. One of the main allures of Chi-Fi is they can output very competitive gear at a substantial discount over those built in the West. But at this price, you can get similar West-made gear.

True about Burr-Brown, who also has manufacturing facilities outside of the US (Japan), and is a bit player in the DAC market in terms of market share. I still stand by my statement that the VAST majority of these components are made in Asia. And in the electronics products we see here on MD? I’d bet it’s well upwards of 90%.

Oh, and those semiconductor companies based in the US are mostly in AZ where they design and headquarter, but all of them use fabs in Asia. Intel, Amkor, all of them.
