since you are here, questions incl.:

1. Price
2. options
3. technical specs.

many more, that is why you should put info on yr site rather than repeating yourself.
Some of those links are actually product introductions. Yes, the best is to contact me through e-mail, that's what everybody else does. The DAC info is here:http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...36#post1170936

I don't offer DAC kit directly from my site as it would be competing with my commercial product that was recently reviewed here: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/a...e5/system.html

Price is $230 for PCB and Premium parts, $30 for PCB mount 50VA Hammond tranformer, $20 for Cardas RCA. International shipping $25. Assembled and tested unit $60 extra.

Options may unclude cheaper parts, down to $100 for basic version.

Technical specs can be found in Stereophile review of 47Labs DAC, which is a similar product: http://stereophile.com/digitalprocessors/800/

According to some, a modified Bidat is one of the best DACs available, at any price. Well, I have one and I think it may be true

I described some of my mods here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...594#post901594 I later did a bit more, which I did not described.

I bought that unit more than a year ago and it's been in my system ever since. Initially, it didn't sound to me as good as the modified NOS DAC, although I could detect some hidden potential. After the mods, I would say it's some 10-20% better than NOS DAC, it has more refinement, when NOS can be still a bit rough on the edges or a bit colored. NOS DAC on the other hand offers probably more raw energy.

For best results, Bidat needs to be modified, otherwise it sounds veiled and a bit boring.
Thank you Peter. This is very helpful. Have you ever heard the bidat's little brother, the Meitner Bitstream, with it's available factory upgrades? I currently have one that's fully upgraded and would be interested in comparing it to your dac, if I get a chance.

Would you sell that chassis for your DAC-1? Or do you even have them. Probably be expensive though.

The standard DAC chassis is available at $150, it is not suitable for Cardas RCAs those, as I use custom made RCAs assembly there (those are also available at $15)

The chassis pictured below is a modified version (by adding wood panels and new front plate). That one will accomodate Cardas RCAs and is $220.
