New WM8741 eBay DAC kit
Found a new WM8741 DAC kit here :

NEW WM8741 DIR9001 Coaxial Optical DAC Decoder W/ CS8421 24bit/192Khz Upsampling | eBay

There's also a version with USB input.

Seems promising. I would like to get one but I still have other project to do (and no money to burn), so who's going to pull the trigger ?

Personally I am not crazy about CS8421. It is my least favorite ASRC.

Do you think it's possible to change CS4821 with a better chip (your favourite?) on this board?
At this price it seems a good choice.
Me too interested on this DAC, or on a better one...
Anyway, I don't know WM8741 (I know it's a very good dac chip and I would like to try it), what about a tube output stage with this one?
I'd hope it's simple to build, like with CS4398 et similia.
I mean direct connections from chip to tube.
It would be a good thing.
I don't love opa...
Last but not least: chips from china = fake ? :confused:
