Nice work, can you detail all the boards used?

Sure,
It starts with an RPI, with Ian's little U.FL adapter on it, 3 coax goes to Ian's I2S FIFO than I2StoPCM board. Those are stacked on each other. Than my little DAC board comes, that is version x of my AD1865 boards. I found LM431 power supplies on board to be a good solution. I have 2 of them on the board, for the analog +- and the digit +.
The DAC runs in current mode, the termination resistors are not visible, under interstage the transformers on the analog board. The analog board is not a PCBA, it is just a cnc cut board, the traces are wires. The analog amplification has tube rectification and AN copper foil caps on output. In the middle, there is the tube filament power supply board with additional RC filtering. The toroid feeds that and the tub rectifier of the analog amplifier.
There are 2 more power supply boards, one has a dual output about 9V and a single 9V for the DAC board analog and digit board (not 5, because there is regulation on the DAC board). Last, between the toroid and the DAC PSU on the right, there is a 5V supply for the PI and the digital line boards.
I need to replace the toroid.
Than I will replace the DAC board to analog board and the analog board to cinch connector analog cables to AN KSL cables.
And the tubes too. At the moment I have old used tubes from my drawer, I will get some new tubes into it.

Regards,
JG

PCM2707 + PCM1793 + OPA2134 for post-DAC filter + LMH6643 power op amp for headphone output.

Negative rail is provided by LM2662MX (modern more powerful version of ICL7660) switched-capacitor converter. Both negative and positive voltages are filtered via damped (Q about 1) LC filters.

What schematic and tubes did you use for the PCM1794 output?

Default dam1021 dual-mono with bal-bal headphone amp

Final updates to mine, updated to XU208, don't think this setup can get any better than what it is. (happy)

Default My TDA1541 dual dac pcb

This is my first attempt at a dac pcb. Its for use with Iancanada's I2S to pcm board shown next to it.
The dacs will be operating in simultaneous mode with true and inverted data, one dac per channel.

I will be testing it using 100r I/V resistors and a pair of Sowter bifilar wound i/v transformers.
Future plan is for an I/V pcb with four AD844 and four opamp buffer/drivers for the transformers, probably OPA627 or similar.
