that looks real nice.. is this something that would have to be made again, or are more of these available?
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:

this link may be of use too:
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 :-)
