Will use this for an internet radio I'm building with a Raspberry Pi. Item arrived very quickly and it was well packaged.

Great quality/price ratio! Board worked right from the start and sounds great. Also very low noise floor - on par with CD-player.
Europe: HW is similar to the Audiophonics DAC Sabre
Drivers: the snd_soc_hifiberry_dac driver works flawlessly (it chain-loads snd_soc_pcm5102a driver). For newer Linux-distros (Archlinux with Kernel > 4.4) use "device_tree_param=i2s=on" and "dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac" in config.txt
Only (minor) negative thing: the RCA jacks are not gold-plated on my version, but It's
more an appearance issue, since gold has higher resistance than nickel.
Good audio quality for that...

Using Raspberry PI with a piCorePlayer image it worked instantly as a generic I2S device. The sound quality is much higher (namely incomparable) than the built in audio on the Raspberry Pi.
