I did some quick digging and found that AKM currently only offers 1 dac chip that supports up to 24/192. I may be wrong but this is my guess. https://www.akm.com/eu/en/products/audio/audio-dac/ak4430et/
Nice logic, appreciate your findings! Did a quick search myself and found some Schitt products that also use AKM and list 24 192. The model number is 4490 so maybe it is different. Also worth noting that the 4430ET is listed as EOL :o

Based on the list on akm website, both variants of 4490 are listed as 32-bit. I found the 4482vt which is a 24-bit dac that supports up to 216khz. However I doubt that is used because it is differential output which would easily allow this dongle to have balanced output that can drive more sales through marketing.

LOL details, details... if they don't list it they're probably not too proud of it ;-) I looked for a few sites that sell it for $150 and nobody lists which AKM chip it has . All I could find is its 24-bit, 'high performance' chip. Hmmm
I'm starting to get bravo audio gold lion tube vibes here haha
