no dramas mate, just misdirected it seems. no offense intended from this end either, but it did confuse me somewhat.

agreed that some great sound can be had simply by finding the right circuit and matching the right values between your specific components, moreso than trying to patch a badly realized combination of designs by throwing money at random expensive components.

lots of snakeoil around for sure, though less so than many other audio forums due to the slant towards understanding what you are building here. some of these things that seem silly can however have real audible effects, for unknown reasons, others however are just plain ridiculous or placebo.

that sort of dubious posting seems thicker around the 'modify your cheap ebay dac for world beating sound' type threads.

but then as I see it, who am I to argue with someone elses perception and what makes then happy. although I have been known to do so on occasion

Who was selling those PS audio grade caps? Unfortunately the caps I bought from hifi collective.co.uk were too big to mount on the pcb.

I tried emailing them to hopefully take them back, but I got no reply.

I've got to shop for a few more things; case, transformer, etc...

Anyone have any suggestions for these items?

Thanks,
JG

I'm pretty sure that group buy ended a long time ago.
