Sound Setup Ltd ( presents the exaSound e20 DAC to the UK market.



"A new converter to the UK's shores is the exaSound e20 Mk III from Canada. This compact DAC claims to be the first to support 4x DSD and a sampling rate of 11.2896MHz (DSD 256), which it does with an ESS9018 Sabre chipset. It also supports the DXD 352.8kHz format used by certain high-end labels and can run at up to 384kHz on the PCM side. These are big numbers for a little box, quite an expensive little box at £2875, but it was sounding pretty sweet with a pair of JansZen zA2.1 hybrid electrostatic speakers from the US, with Bryston PP120 power amps (£3795 pair) strapped to their backs. The fan-like paper display piece may have been a key to the sonic outcome, but we’re inclined to hand it to the quality of software and hardware used."
