Was thinking about going with this, until I scored a sweet deal on a V200 and V800 for $1000 ;)

I have a Emotiva Stealth DC-1, how does it compare to this in sound quality?

To my ears, the emotiva stealth dc-1 sounds about $400 cheaper than the yulong d18. The money graph confirms my ear test. :P

Another async USB bus interface option is the Peachtree X1.

There is really no reason to buy a DAC without a USB in this day and age

Actually, there is no reason to buy a high-end DAC without a USB to SPDIF processor in this day and age. So a DAC without USB is OK as long as it has coax input. Then go get yourself an Audiophilleo, Off-Ramp or HiFace.

Yulong's DA8 has a proprietary USB interface and DSD capability, but it lists for $1,200. There is a less expensive, stripped down version of the DA8, which I probably shouldn't mention here, that uses the XMOS USB interface that is a common solution for newer DACs.

A "reference" DAC that isn't purely neutral? What does the word even mean, then?

No USB input is a deal breaker for me. Good DAC though.
