Reviewed in Japan 🇯🇵 on February 20, 2022
matrix audio mini-i 2proからの買い換えになります。
前機よりワンランク上の機種となりますが、密度や情報量も多くなり、電源部分やクロック周りがよく作られているおかげか、低音がメリハリがありキレのある音となり、音の出方がすごく変わりました。
AKMのDACチップとは違い、ESSのDACは適度に柔らかく自然な音の出方をするので、キラキラ高解像度系のAKMは聴き疲れして自分は苦手です。

今はDDCのsingxer SU-2を購入し、IIS接続で聴いていますが、IISで接続するとより音の密度がアップしてX18の良さを更に発揮します。

価格的な面では同じES9038proを搭載した廉価なX16がありますが、聞き比べていないので比較はできませんが、こちらの機種はX16の不満点(例えば電源ボタンの追加)を改良された側面もあるみたいなので使い勝手も良くなり不便は感じておりません。

不満点としましては、スペック上では32bit対応と書いてありますが、windows11上では24bitまでしか選べなくて、32bitで出力するためにはfoobar等でASIO経由で選ばないとできません。
自分はPC→(USB接続)→SU-2→(IIS接続)→X18にしたらwindowsのサウンドのプロパティで32bitで出力できるようになりました。

GUSTARDというメーカーは今回初めてですが、この価格帯ではTOPPINGやSMSLよりもコスパが良く、非常に気に入ったのでまた機会があれば購入したいと思います。
(SMSLは低中価格帯ではバランス出力っぽいことを謳い文句にしているが、実際はバランス回路ではなく消費者を欺いてる感じがあり、あまり好きになれません)
