Great Overall DAC

I attached the DAC to my Yamaha amplifier & was blown by the separation of musical instruments. Have attached to my RPi streamer acting as a Roon endpoint. I'm quite happy with the setup.

Clean DAC

Clean and detailed. Worth it considering the price for this balanced dac. Flawless performance from it's balanced output. I have only tested as a source to powered speakers. The interface is not so straightforward. You really need to take care if you are switching from line out to pre out because there is no separate mode in dac. If you are not careful, full line out signal will go to your power amp/speaker.
Will update once I test with my headphones and IEMs (HE 4XX, HD58X, GL2000, koss kph30i, Shuoer Tape and Blon bl03) using SMSL SP200 THX 888 amp.
Edit: Upon pairing this with SMSL SP200, I realise there is a reduction in soundstage using RCA interconnect compared to XLR interconnect. This can be attributed to a crossfeed of about 10dB in single ended output from E50 dac. Other than this I really have to say this a solid dac, punching way above it's weight at this price point.

The best ES9068AS DAC in this budget

Topping has got the competition to an all new level with the E50.
It's definitely going to give a run for market capitalization to its competition unless they come up with something close to this in 2022. I would recommend instead of shelling out 35-40K, just try this product once (ensure to hook up the DAC to a clean, noise-free power supply, else the performance level cannot be judged).
IMO, a slightly bigger & heavier body with an inbuilt power supply would not be bad.

E50 - Everything you need and some of what you want

Definitely an upgrade from the entry level dac that I was using before this. Agree to other reviews about instrument separation being something that is immediately observed. Fully balanced at this price is super. The only thing I would have liked is an additional rca input for an additional device. However don’t feel that I would have the urge to upgrade my dac for the next few months. And yes. It’s got full mqa support. For those who believe in it 😊.

It is an okay DAC

It did not wow me like the iFi Zen DAC v2 , the E50 definitely has more detail and clarity but I love the sound signature of the zen dac v2 better. The E50 is in no slouch either, I just prefer the warm sound of the zen dac v2 over the somewhat sharp sound of the E50. Also, I don't think it is worth 22k. It could be because of my amplifier pairing also which is also somewhat bright, hopefully with a new amplifier, it performs more to my liking. As of right now, 4/5 from me.

We appreciate your honest review & ratings, ravin!
