This is a general purpose isolator for balanced/unbalanced conversion... Hopefully the signal is coming out high enough for a direct amp connection... I've payed 122.16 Pounds for two OCC wired Transformes.

Datasheet: Sowter Type 3603
OCC Option: SOWTER TRANSFORMERS OCC OXYGEN FREE WIRE

I used a set of Jensen JT-11-DMCF transformers. Not the cheapest but they work really well with CS4398. The Experience with this DIY DAC thread has a lot of discussion of various transformers from cheap to expensive for a CS4398 based DAC.

Thank you very much for the link. So far I like the sound of the DAC very much and hope to maximize its performance.

Thumbs up My Dac arrived.....

Hi all!

Today my sweet little NewDac came in the post - thanks to HiFiDIY for perfect boards - and I look forward to listen to Hi-Res files on this Less-is-More kind of doing digital sound. Just now I am listening to Christe Winn on 24/96 Wav files on my old DacMagic(with OpAmps and filters). My B1-Pre has only 2 transistors and my SITLamp has ONLY 1 transistor(Sony 2SK82). Think it will be even more musical with this sc4398dac(hope so).
But first I have to go 14 days offshore to my telecom-schedule. Have to wait till beginning of october for to get it singing.

Best to all

Got mine today too.

Busy comparing the tiny HifiMeDiy USB DAC to the ODAC at the moment. Will report back here once I get the Direct-out DAC up and running.

Thanks for your report - I wonder if you have tried the DAC with oversampling, since as your photo shows you are running Non-Oversampling for the moment. And if you could say what you prefer of the 2 possibilities?

Best

Hi OlavHaal, Via Jack Server the hardware upsampling is totally unnecessary, all system streams are eventually summed and resampled by the server.
