It appears that the Jay's DAC is unavailable probably as a result of the devastating AKM fire, hope they can start making chips again soon.
So you don't believe a 0.1x can beat a 2.1x sig?
I received my Holo May DAC (Kitsune Edition) a couple of weeks ago. My well broken-in Benchmark DAC3 was sounding terrific, but the Holo May has gone farther in every respect. More separation and space, more bass texture, more detail, terrific timbre, and even lower glare (very non-fatiguing with even more detail). It's about halfway through Kitsune Audio's recommended 500-hour break in, and it has been shifting a bit since a couple of weeks ago, balancing out a bit and opening up with more space and detail. Very very happy with it.
Also, please don’t forget to feed your DAC’s with a good streamer/music server. Happy listening!
Thanks for sharing your impressions, but I thought that this was a thread about SS DAC’s and not uncontrolled shootouts with a tubed one (even though I love TS 5687’s). I’m also quite happy that I didn’t purchase a single-boxed discontinued DAC or use a laptop as a source.

Not just a "tubed" DAC, but even tube-rectified, no oversampling, no digital filtering, using the ancient TDA1541 DAC chip. It's as if the designer did everything possible to rebuke the "all DAC's sound the same" challenge I'm sure many like this presentation.
Thanks Jon. I think that you’re missing my point. The OP posted about DAC’s in the “All Solid State” circle then brings up a shootout between a discontinued SS DAC with a tubed one. That is all. Michael, what DAC are you using in your secondary system? I’ve got an Audiolab 8000 CD used as a transport and 8000 DAX in mine along with a Schiit Yggy in the bedroom. The Audiolab has a warmer and not as detailed presentation.
