the best are the sabres, the mamboberry and the sabre txco v2. they sound almost the same but the mambo has a litle more overall bass.
Thank you for the comparison. Are you using the mamboberry with the toroidal Transformer ? Interested to know if the liner power supply makes a difference in sound quality.
Do you still prefer the mamboberry and the sabre txco v2 ?
Thank you !

reading here I bought this for 7/8 euro
It's very similar to the basic es9023 on audiophonics
http://www.audiophonics.fr/en/diy-dac/a ... -8396.html
I spend some month with it on rpi2 and Volumio
Well, I have to say it was a nice time to listening my music but just after (a very long actually) 60 days from order I receive the package with this
http://aliexpress.com/item/ONE-PIECE-PR ... 58522.html
It was quite dramatic change
Everything from definition to extension of reproduction improve a lot and imho, reach a quality I rarely had the privilege to listen
Probably the thing more stunning is the stereo positioning effect, 10/10 in my opinion
In the past I've spent some money on expensive gears, probably like many of us and objectively, I think it could be very difficult or impossible, to find something that can play your music better than this solution (rpi/es9023/tcxo) with less than 40/50 euro too!!
Consider also that I'm running everything from the usb pc port or an inexpensive 5v wall adapter, it make no difference for me, I can definitely live with it
Don't hesitate to put a i2s es9023 dac on your board but remember to check the possibility to have a 50Mhz high precision clock on it.
It will make a night and day difference and totally worth the money

And put the TCXO according to the footprint on the PCB...

A good clock is very very important
