I wanted to start a thread so members can show off their DAC creations. :)

OK, I'll bite. These two are almost old enough to vote:

I'm working on a new one these days. I'll post schematics and such later.

Awesome! what chips are you using on the tube dac?. I'm working on one as well but still waiting on parts to arrive so it will take a while.

I'm using a Crystal CS8412 receiver, and an NPC5843 digital filter, and a pair of PCM63's on the output. Passive I/V and a pair of 6DJ8's in SRPP configuration. Even to this day, it's a good sounding unit.

Homebrew DAC:

Based on: CS8416 - SRC4192 - CS4398.
The analog stage is a 100% non-NFBand fully discrete.
All power supply voltages is made with 2 step regulation. Analog stage use true shunt regulators.
