The four ground wires consist of dual PG+ and PG- connections (in parallel, to increase current capacity).
Got it, thanks I didn't realize your 3875 board has a pair of PG+/PG-.

Would it be a good idea to do the same (use dual PG+ and PG- connections) with the 4870 kit?

I would suggest so, especially when it's more powerful chip.

Hi Peter, anyone who can help. Sorry if this is answered before.

How do we connect the PS if the transformer is the center-tapped type? Should we omit 4 of the diodes or disconnect (cut) the CT and connect as two series windings on the rectifier board?

Thanks

Sangram

I usually convert centertapped transformer into dual secondaries by disconnecting 2 wires. It may not always be possible, in that case one bridged is used (only):

Default All-In-One Premium DAC

Peter,

I finally got my AllInOne powered up and it is very nice indeed. I set up an A-B listening test between it and the on-board DAC in my Denon DVM-2815 using an A-B switch and then powering the signals through an M3 headamp to my Senn HD600s. Using Vangelis as my program, I've listened to about an hours worth of music so far.

When first powerd on, the ALLInOne was a little narrow and tight, but within about 15 minutes, it opened up nicely to a full rich sound. I also had to reverse the CD analog inputs to my A-B switch so the switching between inverted and non-inverted wouldn't throw off my comparisons from ear to ear.

The AllInOne seems a little fuller in the bass end to me, but I don't hear much difference in the highs (could be my 60 yr old ears though). Soundstage with this source was about the same between the Denon and the ALLInOne, but there were differences in the emphasis on different instruments. It might be more dramatic with a less digitally orchestrated program.

Overall, a very full rich sound, with nothing missing! I really like it. Now a case for it! And time to begin the second one.

Robert
