How much is the USB DAC Kit now? Can the open chassis be bought also?

It is still possible to DIY one - the schematics are available, and the updated version is actually simpler than original. I can help with alternate parts choices (what to use instead of Black Gates etc.).

Which exact power supply arrangement you are using? I am assuming you do not have access to any Black Gates at all?

People under-estimate them. I've owned two non-USB, went away from digital, but now I miss the music I can't get on vinyl.

They were always better than the rest of my equipment. They are insanely musical with power conditioning (good, not transformers).

Peter was also kind enough to solder on the pesky SMD chip with his kits.

There is no need to use any surface-mount parts. CS8412 is available in a DIP package, which sounds the same as SMD; I believe Peter chose SMD simply for its compactness.

Interesting. The build still looks intimidating because of the mounting distances etc. I sort of enjoy plug-n-play solder project kits though

Onw in the updated, balanced version. Nope. I have NIchicon KG mounted currently. Bypass caps are Vishay MKP 1837. Output caps are Auricap. Everything else as spec'd
