What exactly needs to be done and is it a worthwhile intervention?

I believe that sheet is correct, it matches the latest datasheet. I changed mine as soon as I got the dac, never tried it with the other parts.

indeed no way should the grounds be tied directly to the case. for best results tie grounds to the ground of the first main filter/reservoir cap of the power supply or center tap of the transformer and then for safety ground this should be tied to IEC ground and the case through a ground loop breaker. this last step is only for safety, there is no reason to do it otherwise as it only hurts the sound.

Thanks Bill. I believe pins 7&8 are involved but where and how exactly do you connect this filter?

As I recall, the components are right behind the coax input jack. I pulled the jack to get to them. From memory I believe there was a 1k R, and a .1uf cap and I can't remember what the other cap was. You should be able to trace them to the 8416 with your meter.

So how good this dac is? Is there anyone who fully assembles it in Europe, with dir9001 instead of the default one?
How much would be the full cost, including shipping to germany?

They are sold on Ebay, and one of the suppliers sells cases for them.

How good are they? What do you have now. Mine is great, I'm not looking for anything to replace it in the near future.

I thought I posted yesterday, must not have hit the button. I can't remember who bought one, the post was several pages back. I think he paid around $150 US with the board.

Every time I listen a DAC with a PCM1794(output well done ex: with lundhal 4/1) I get a smile in face.
