Great product and service arrived quick thanks team

Mark Bourne

Very pleased with the R26 so far (about 100 hours use). Using it as a Roon endpoint/dac via wired LAN. For want of better words I hear it as a combination of the precision of my chip dacs (Topping D70s and others) crossed with the more natural sound of my other R2R dac (Ares II). Streamer section works at least as well as my Pi4 on a quality linear power supply (RoPieee wired LAN in/USB out to dac). Very happy also with the prompt delivery by Audiophile Store.

I’ve had a Gustard R26 in my system for about five weeks. Aaron had warned me that it would need burning-in before sounding any good but I decided to listen to it straight out of the box anyway. It was stunning right from the start, so far ahead of my previous dac. Up to about 80 hours now and it just gets better and better. Bass is a lot stronger, deeper, faster, tighter. High treble is brilliant without any harshness. Midrange has much more substance. Most obvious is its retrieval of fine detail, filling the sound stage with ambience, and with the acoustics of the performance space / concert hall clearly portrayed. The sound stage has tremendous 3D depth, with solo instruments & voices very clearly defined. Best of all for me, as a lifelong professional member of symphony orchestras, is the sound of massed violins - this being the most difficult of all orchestral sounds to resolve. There are 40 (or more) individual violinists, all very slightly micro-tonally out of tune with each other, and all with their individual vibratos. This is the first time I’ve heard the violins collectively sounding so well in a HiFi system!
All in all the R26 is a revelation here, and it still continues to improve!
