so, 😉
thx to „Krunoslav“ again, he sent us some new driver (V4.38 from to test perfect bitstreaming via wasapi under Win8.1+Foobar+Skysong(Singxer)-XMOS-USB-bridge+ES9038Q2M->see comments->
unfortunately it doesnt work here for me but i will upload it to the forum anyway (LINK)..but be careful i had here very great problems with my antivir..
but curiously after installing my buffer-/“stuttering“-problems with files above 16/44,1 (now here in 24/192 no problems) with the Skysong(Singxer)-XMOS-USB-bridge+ES9038Q2M (via I2S) are gown away 😉 ..

but still these new ES9038Q2M (in any case the pcb i have here->the „blue“ one) sounds for me still like plate/sheet..(„old problem“->we still have to evaluate if its a „shitty“ pcb/components and if the „green“ ones sound better)..

ES9038Q2M: interesting new forum ( + DACES9038PRO

so, 😉
came here by chance to a new very interesting ES9038Q2M-forum->
some interesting pics/news on it, par example that the Green 1.06 has 7805 instead of 7808 on it and so on 😉 ->

by that, there is also a link to a 9038Pro-DAC (DACES9038PRO) designed by Andrea Ciuffoli/Quang Hao + a lot of interesting infos around the schematics of the sabre-chips->


greets for now 😉

Hi everyone, it’s now available to order! Some more data will be added to the description soon. We do have a few units available now, and more after Chinese New Year. And we managed to get the price down to 219€„..
„The Hifime UDA38Pro utilises the ESS Sabre ES9038Pro DAC chip that has received a lot of attention and praised as the most important new DAC chip in ages…We have paired the ES9038Pro with OPA1622 output stage amplifier that can drive a wide range of loads including low and high impedance headphones and also line level loads like preamps and amplifiers… it can achieve up to 140dB !! dynamic range, -122 dB (0.00008%) total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD+N) in mono mode

Specs: (to come..)
