I finally got my AllInOne powered up and it is very nice indeed.
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.

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.

And after a couple more hours of 'burn-in', it sounds even better! This is a great little DAC.

The DAC improves substantially during first 24 hours, and then even more in a month or so. I recommend to keep it powered on all the time for best performance.

There is no specific orientation for AC1 and AC2. Here, as you can see, it doesn't make any difference which way you connect it: http://www.audiosector.com/lm4780%20psu.pdf

Peter,

I got the amp up and running yesterday. Sounds good (i.e., it works, though I did initially take out one channel on the PS board due to faulty wiring ). While it is too soon to make any critical judgements since the amp hasn't burned in, it sounds better than I expected at this stage, and definitely different than my tube amps.

One thing that surprised me is there is much less gain than I expected, given how many people use it with a passive preamp. I am using a Allen Wright modified Sony CDP, passive preamp and Vandersteen 3a Sig's. With the volume pots at full volume I am just barely achieving my normal listening level. Any suggestions on what the best solution would be (short of recommending an active preamp or different speakers, of course)?

Regards,
Wade
