Is there a non-aesthetic reason for the power supply being in a separate case?

No reason really, you can put everything into one case.

Ok, if I want a 2-box solution: How far can I go away with the 7808?

I don't see a reason not to place 7808 with the transport.

External PS box should only contain rectifiers and transformer.

An umbilical cable that came with my CEC TL0 is at least 6ft long.

Default Does this transport have easy access to I2S?

if this has been answered, forgive me.

I see you have the DAC next to the transport which makes me think this could be an easy implementation of the mysterious I2S.

What do you think?

There is no possibility for I2S output, but that let not worry you, I2S is overrated

Default No surprise

there is usually nothing so desirable as that which is not readily available.

And when it inevitably becomes widely available everyone wonders what the big deal was.

Of couse, I am one of the worst offenders of this phenomenon borne of wanting something different as much as warnting something better.

Thanks for the answer.

Bye,

PS which output are you using AES/EBU or RCA? My inclination is to replace the RCA with a BNC, just as much because my digital cable is BNC, courtesty of Chris Sommovigo/STEREOVOX.

Default On second thought ...

with processor and transport inches away from each other why bother with connctors at all?

It would seem best just to solder an appropriate pair of wires direct?

That's actually what I did in assembly in post #42

As to digital interconnect, I'm using Belkin Synapse. I learned about it from goodsoundclub.com forum and this is what Romy says about the cable:

"Belkin in 90s produced a line of audio cables: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum. Yes, it was Belkin - the company that does cheap computer stuff. Among all this cables there was Platinum Synopsis (cost $24) - an ugly blue 75Ohn digital cable. This cable sonically is much more interesting then any other S/PDIF cables, at least that I have tried, and it was quite a large number of cables tried for a person who claims to be a normal.

In 2002 Belkin introduced a new revision of the Platinum Synopsis Digital - it was black cable with molded terminator - that Platinum Synopsis was bad sounding cable. In end of the 2002 I spoke with Belkin and they informed me that the old Blue cable is not longer in production and there were only 200 of them left in their inventory. Soon those cables were gone and nowadays it is impossible to found a record of the Blue Platinum Synopsis Digital (#F8C310-03-PLT) when you talk with Belkin support people.

The sonic magnificence of the cable was discovered by a NY friend of mine why purely accidentally used his computer cable in his DAC and was surprised by the result. When I tried it I sold immodestly my digital cables and never even tried anything else since then (I had Dominus Digital at that time). BTW, at that time I bought other Belkin Platinum Series cables - they turned out to be nothing special"


It's my current reference and I don't think I'll ever switch to anything else either

What was this part for? I don't see it in the summary at the beginning of the thread. Thanks again.
