Gustard DAC-X20Pro - Dual ES9028 Sabre (New Flagship model)

After the very successful X20 using the ES9018, Gustard has finally launch the DAC-X20pro with core chip uses the 2 pcs latest ES9028PRO (left and right channels for each one). Despite the launch of the ES9028pro, ES9018 was once the flagship DAC chip use in many High End DAC and audio products in the market are still very widely use. Gustard is one of the pioneer who has come out with High End DAC with ES9028Pro. But not many able to price them under USD1,000.

Gustard H10 High End Class A Headphone Amplifier

Class A headphone amplifier with high current current output. For each channel in the amp it has 2 independent amplification circuit. The H10 features two independent amplification circuits for the left and right channels, four gain switches, two RCA inputs, and two balanced XLR inputs.
There are 4 pre-buffer adjustment functions  build in with the amplfier and that mean the amplifier using pre-stage buffer and main amplifier components. By using 4 paris audio power tube output circuit, the H10 could easily drive variety of different impedance headphones.
The Gustard H10 built in with 2pcs 25W transformer and they correspond left and right channels power supply and highly reduce the channel crosstalk.
