Echolocating bats have among the finest ears in all animals. They are capable to resolve ultrasonic signals far beyond 100 kHz. We investigate the bio-acoustics of the bat ear and explore neuronal mechanisms of ultrasonic perception. Critical for our research is high quality ultrasonic sound stimulation with lowest possible distortion

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! :)

I'm using the exaSound e18 DAC as the centre piece of a digital cross-over. The system has a Windows 7 / J. River source with the native “convolution” function used to create sub, bass and mid-high in the digital domain which then sent to the e18 via USB. All the cross-overs have been designed in Acourate and volume control is done within e18. The speakers are Unity Horns with 15” pro-audio mid-/bass bins and a pair of stereo woofers.

I've owned my PSB Stratus gold-i's since 1999. They have gone through various sources and amplifiers, concluding with a Lynx L22 soundcard / NAD C272 power amplifier. The L22 was used in a recording studio. I decided to sell off all my studio gear and start researching a serious Two-Channel upgrade. I've done some mixing and mastering and have always loved good music, whether a great performance, or a great technical presentation. I've also learned (the hard way) how bad mixing or mastering can ruin an otherwise good recording. This time I wanted to step back, and enjoy the benefits of everyone else's work.

As a result of this thread, I contacted several manufacturers of nice audio hardware.

George Klissarov, the owner of exaSound, was one of the first to reply.  He sent me an e18 demo unit right away.  Then he worked with me on several e18 + JRiver issues, helping improve the experience for both of our users.

The e18 is an audiophile 8 channel DAC.  It competes primarily with other expensive audiophile DACs. More information here: http://www.exasound.com/e18DAC/Overview.aspx

User Testimonial  - Craig Young

I started out on a quest for an integrated DVR/video and high-end digital-audio solution in the form of a home theatre PC (HTPC).  The audio side required 6 channels to support 5.1 surround sound movies and must be audiophile quality for my music.  It must output the analogue audio as RCA line-level to my hi-fi power-amps.
