Steve, I would like to know your final opinion on the Gustard x22. I see your selling it. I have read Dac reviews for last two years. I am using a sml m8 DAC with Rogue Audio Sphinx and Kef Ls50. But I think a new Dac would help a little.. I am down to the x22 ,DENAFRIPS ARES, Holo Spring level1. Or just wait for newest flavor to come this fall. Thanks Z !
