Have you any idea of the cost for the board yet Peter? I really want to get hold of one of these.

Many thanks,

You have no idea what you are missing out on. I have a simular dac like this and its amazing compaired to the built in sound card's.
I think i spent more on the buffer than i did the usb part.

Peter,
I would like to add the USB board to my existing SPDIF Premium and Green Board DACs in the switched configuration you mentioned. I'm finally getting around to building the cases for them, so your timing is perfect......I just need to modify the case size a little bit.

When do you think you will have them ready for sale?
Robert

Default Fuse for dac

What value slow blow fuse are people using with their DACs in the US/Canada region (110V)?

Thanks,
Anand.

1 or 2 A is what I'm using. A tried few different types and digikey part# 507-1032 seemed to create least "damage"

I'm sending files for production on Monday, and it will take approx 2 weeks to fabricate them.

What value do you recommend for the 230V version of the DAC? And, what value is suitable for the Gainclone LM3875 kit I bought from you some time ago? For the time being, I am using 1,6A, but this blow rather often (I use slow blow version and the recommended transformer)

best wishes
Jan Ove

With 230V, I would go with 1A for the DAC and at least 3A for GC.

With 115V and 300VA toroids I'm using 6A fuses.
