Dropouts with SPDIF with ES9018 can (my opinion based on experience) be caused by register programming (not optional) of the ES9018,
or inadequate PSU / mains noise.

I do not have any problems at all even if I only use a digital pulse transformer directly connected to the ES9018 without any other components - except the 75 ohm termination resistor.

Your problem could be as simple as you are using SPDIF and have PCM word clock, PCM bit clock or PCM data connected and receiving ...

Answered in red.

BII DIP switch settings are:

SW1
1,2,3 OFF
4 ON
5,6,7,8 OFF

SW2
1 ON
2,3,4,5,6,7 OFF
8 ON

I have no BII competence in respect of switch settings or programming.
If you are running both SPDIF and PCM signals simultaneously to the ES9018 and that is the problem - there is maybe only two ways to cure this.
1. Disconnect the PCM signals when using SPDIF.
2. Change the programming for the ES9018 (I cannot help with this).
For option 2 you could contact the vendor of you DAC.

Sorry is BIII. Do you want that I change IIR bandwith to DSD 50K, 60k or 70k?

I increased the CCS current to 845mA to see what's happen.

Go HERE and start reading. Or skip to the last page, where nice guy from Romania is willing to share pcb files.
And please use 74HCU04, where U = unbuffered.

Thank you stormsonic, now I see is for AES/EBU balanced signal not for S/PDIF signal, also I take note to use U = unbuffered version.

Have I to use only half schematic for unbalanced S/PDIF signals right?

You could try to modify it as I suggested in post #15. The impedance is correct for SPDIF.
For AES/EBU you would need a higher impedance (110ohm).
As I wrote, the modification will give you twice as much signal. And that is at the buffer input, so it will make the buffer less sensitive to noise. The output will still be from 0 to the supply voltage (5V in this case).
