    my new gadget/sound device

    consider selling this...please see post 11

    my dac finally arrived:


    some notable specs: 122 s/n ratio, 192/24 bit, balanced outputs

    this piece is just a tad bit smaller then my motherboard which will look great on the other side of my trunk under plexi.

    i think this would have to be made again. It's an eval board:

    Your first link is no good. That think looks sweet!

    How much was it?
    Where did you get it?
    How does it connect to the computer..or does it?

    Damn. Not quite what I was looking for. Still seems like a really nice piece.

    fixed the link. the board; if you can find it, runs about $400 new. i got it for less because it was used. you can try searching on the diyaudio.com site or maybe contact the vendor from the second link i provided.

    and JC was right, coax or optical spdif and xlr (balanced). I'm not sure i would use this unless you have an x-over with balanced inputs and something that ups the output voltage. There is an ldx-23 on ebay right now (what i'm using) or i think you could use a zapco slx-4 (i have one sitting here if anyone is interested). you can convert balanced to unbalanced by ground the -signal wire to the shield, or you can find a handful of amps out there with balanced inputs (some use a standard rca and floating grounds).

    Is the system in your car really nice enough to warrent that? Balanced signals in a car would be pretty wicked.

    Looks sweet man!

    does my system warrant it? it's beginning to, yes. does my car warrant it...definately not. but i am a fool and like to have a clean signal. :-) The door speakers are going to be swapped out probaby...just because i'm addicted to the hobby and constantly changing. but my tube amps have balanced inputs, my x-over has them, as well as my solid state zapco amp for my sub :-)

    balanced signals will reject rf interferance... ANY system would benifit from that...
