Initial impression: I've just received the exaSound e20 MkII DAC and I've been extensively comparing it against the Benchmark DAC2. The Benchmark is a very fine DAC with solid build quality, but to my ears exaSound performs better in almost every way.

In one word :amazing. I’m really surprised of the simplicity the e28 DAC has with just everything you throw at it. DSD 2.8 multichannel and stereo, DSD 5.6 stereo, 384 PCM material, everything is just so perfect. Thank you for that nice piece of equipment: I have tried/owned the Mytek 192, the TEAC UD-501, the Korg DAC-10 and a LINN Akurate Streamer…really nothing sounds like the exaSound…it’s really impressive.

The purity of presentation through the exaSound e20 Mk II DAC was astonishing. DSD files which I had heard before as aggressive and somewhat bright through my Oppo105 player now sounded full, natural with inner details and smooth texture. The imaging was wider, with more space between instruments. Yet music just did not seem to appear from speakers as most often happens when the sound stage widens.

I just finished comparing both of these units (Benchmark DAC2 and exaSound e20), along with the Mytek 192DSD, on a 30-day home trial. I kept the Exasound.

The Benchmark was solid, but, to my ears, the Exasound was better in most every way: more dynamic, more liquid and more detailed.

I have a system built around a pair of Spendor S100 speakers and a Jolida integrated >100W tube amp, and I must say that I could not discern any significant difference or improvement in sound between the Chordette QuteHD DSD DAC (that I have also been auditioning) and the entry-level FIIO E17 unit (using the Wolfson 8740 DAC). I was therefore skeptical that I would hear much or any difference in the sound between the e20 and the other DACs That said, I am happy to report that I do indeed consider that the e20 has improved my listening enjoyment in the form of greater perceived greater clarity. It as though a film has been removed from the sound.

I received the e18 a while ago and I absolutely love it! It's exactly the piece of hardware I've been looking for since starting my home theatre PC project about 2 years ago. Running through my Anthem PVA7 power amp it sounds incredible. So much so that I took a day off work just after receiving the e18 so that I could watch some classic movies at THX-approved volumes and listen to some of my favourite tunes at similar volumes without the kids or the wife at home to complain about it!

So thanks heaps for supplying such an awesome unit. As I'm sure you've probably guessed by now, this is one that you're definitely not getting back! :)

E20 directly into the Aleph is excellent. That was a surprise. Better resolution, better sound-stage, better dynamics. And just as sweet. You´re not getting it back.
