I'm presently using a 100VA toroid and it works fine. Will be also trying same transformers that I'm using in DAC (50VA, one per channel)

Hi Peter

How is your USB version of the DAC going?
Any news and listening impressions compared to SPDIF?

Tom :-)

Yes, agree totally. That's why the Patek takes my breath away each time. B4 anybody attempts a real nice enclosure, they will never imagine the nightmares that starts to follow. Of course, I believe this applies to the beginners like me.

Thanks Peter, I'll be thinking of the NOS DAC. I am going to finish up my projects one at a time. Finally, I hope to own a system that is completely DIYed. My ultimate dream.

I don't know why, but USB DAC never seemed to have major priority in my plans. I will try it whenever opportunity arises, but presently I'm concentrating on an active preamp project.

Anyway, I have more than 2,000 CDs. I don't feel like ripping them to the hard drive

No need to rip all of them... However I HIGHLY suggest doing ones you listen too. The bennifits are are more than worth it. The poor CDs you have may all of a sudden be worth listening too.

http://www.audiocircle.com I invite you Peter to have a look. Squeeze Box, SB, Slimware, and Foobar2000 have taken over.

Free yourself of Jitter and incorret CD reads. No jitter and the ability to have as near perfect read of a CD as you can ever get, is a beautiful thing. This voids the need for a good CD player, only SACD and DVD-A are left. With SACD and DVD-A the quality is usually much higher quality and you can get away with a cheaper effecient transport as opposed to CD's poor quality which is not always very readiable. Well you still need an external DAC but none the less.

Sorry about the rant, but you should really check out this swiffering craze.

USB does not free you from jitter. See here:
<http://www.diyhifi.org/forums/viewto...er=asc&start=0>

The USB devices measured here have many times more jitter than a normal CD player digital output.

There is an interesting thread on analog to digital recording on Romy's site: http://www.goodsoundclub.com/Forums/...px?PostID=1644
