Marek Dyba has posted a review of the Eximus DP-1 DAC ($3195) at High Fidelity. His conclusions:
“And last but not least DP-1 offers also damn good sound. Surely not all will be thrilled – if what you seek is most of all clarity, transparency, perfectly neutral tonal balance than most likely you’ll prefer the sound of Bricasti, or dCs. But many audiophiles I know, including myself, look for devices that offer involving, unfatiguing presentation, that lets them forget about system, and just experience music in a very pleasant, touching way – that’s what Eximus can get you.

And while some other devices can do some things even better, you want miss them at all, because Eximus, while not perfect, offers you a great musical experience that makes you forget, or not even notice any imperfections of the presentation. All you care about is music, right here, right now.”
