Default Another DIY ESS ES9018 Sabre DAC board

Found this from a google search.

Has anyone had any experience with this DAC ? Seems reasonably priced for a chip solution that claims to be the penultimate DAC.

The Buffalo II Digital-to-Analog Converter

Highlights
# Four-layer circuit board optimized for mixed signals
# Based on the ESS Sabre32 Reference (ES9018) DAC chip
# Four DACs per channel ("Stereo Quad Balanced" mode) or eight DACs per channel for full dual-mono use.
# High-precision, ultra-low-phase noise clock and integrated reclocking
# Three on-board digital supplies are easily bypassable for customization
# Dual series shunt voltage regulator module for AVcc supply
# Direct DSD, I2S and S/PDIF inputs supporting up to 32-bit/192kHz
# Stereo balanced outputs can be used in current-output or voltage-output mode (depends on output stage used)
# All connections by direct or optional (included) terminal blocks
# I2C header for remote uC interfacing, such as the Volumite digital volume control

Trevor, are you kidding?

It happens to be one of the most popular DIY DAC's out there. Not to mention one of the best.

There is a whole forum here on Twisted Pear products:

If you can afford it - get one. You will need several ancillary products to go with it though.
