Default DAC Outputs

Forgot to mention:

DAC Outputs come out on to pads (no connectors) a short distance from the pins

smd clock is one of the C33XX range http://www.crystekcrystals.com/cryst...lock/C33xx.pdf
What about the output connections?
Still $50 for bare board, thought it would be cheaper with less board real estate?

C33XX crystal option on new layout now.
Board pricing is indicative only based on original dimensions in earlier proposal. But like I said I will be happy pass on any savings in costs in the final layout.

I am more interested in a fully assembled version. Is the external micros needed to control this board included? Power supplies?

PM sent, interested in the bare 9018 or perhaps a tweaker 9018 in 4 oz. this looks like the perfect build to play with LCDaudino for control/sensing. also, do you have any of the sabre chips?? are they on the board already, or do we have to source them ourselves?? I dont mind either way, but would be nice if it came with one. any idea on the pricing for a real dual mono version?? I see it mentioned on the layout and this interests me a great deal. perhaps would be cleaner to buy 2 x T version 9018 boards, but muxing would become a little tricky then.

and i'm with curly woods here, gotta give the guy something for the work, especially if you would like any support or development to continue. these are small runs of high quality PCBs here, not cheap to produce in such low numbers.

that PCB is OK... but I can't justify the 65Eur+shipping on the IC. Especially, because people use it for stereo, its just like the good old tda1541s2 "bidness" (and I tought that must be a fad) ... (...)
I recommended and co-design an ad1955 D/A right now by-the-way .

Who knows, some of the ESS chips might be EOL sooner than we think, once the marketing department pulls a string
