One serious DAC - rebuilding efforts

Post by Wikin on Tue Nov 22, 2011 12:07 pm

Hi guys,

Recently I got the privilege to help a friend rebuild his DAC into a single chasis with highly optimized grounding path and the shortest signal path.

This is one serious dac using TDA1541 non-os, Sowter I/v converter and SRPP output stage.

The voltage supply for the SRPP stage and the main transformer are mounted underneath the plywood using star grounding.

I sounds really marvellous - highly detailed, euphonic, kaw kaw vocals and totally relaxed to the ears even when cranked loud.

Overall DAC from the top.


Zoom into the Sowter and SRPP output stage.


Underneath shows all the kick ass transformers and chokes and star grounding and filament voltage regulator.


The entire module will fit into a nice chasis sold by our forrumer here.




cheers.

Hi KP,
I believe it's based on the Satch.
