Feliz cumpleanos, joven!
I agree wholeheartedly on your assessme,nt of the current Chinese DACs. After I purchased the Maverick D1 and D2. I purcased a midrange DAC by minishow0328 @ ebay
He sells every combination of chipset, transformer, and topology that you can think of: R-core and toroidal, single or dual power supply, ES or Wolfram and digital readpout or LED. It was also very good DAC, so I thirsted for more and settled on an R-core with the same chipset as the Grace.
I also purchased an xDuoo-03, which is tiny, for casual listening. All are recommended
