Ok, I do that modification and you are right - the sound is much improved. One mention, I powered the "clock" from an stabilizer LM1117-5. Sun I will get in possession of their power supply unit ( Power supply for SABRE DAC 2 (UAE23+) 200-240V ), and maybe with that I will obtain again an improvement ...
Best regards,

hello everyone, i've a grado sr80 since few days that i use with laptop and sansa clip zip, i would to add a dac/amp and i've considered to combine the hifimediy UAE23 with a little dotI+ that seems to be an optimal ampli for grado headphones Little Dot Amplifiers • View topic - Little Dot I+ Hybrid Headphone Amplifier
linking them witha a jack to rca cable. is this a good choice? i must consider the ua23+ too?

16tons,

Ihave play FLAC from my laptop and use the SR-80i as well.

1) I added the UAE23: The DAC Awakening ? HifiMeDiy UAE23 (Part 2) - nimophile
2) next, I added the Little Dot 1+: HeadAmping - Little Dot 1+ [Hybrid Headphone Amplifier] (Part 1) - nimophile
3) and then, swap some op-amps and tubes: Op-Amping ? Little Dot 1+ [Hybrid Headphone Amplifier] (Part 2) - nimophile

My PC Audio setup is on the last link. Hope this helps.

No issues whatsoever. I'm on Win 7 Pro, 64-bit. No drivers needed. Simply plug n' play. Windows will install native drivers.

Cable looks fine I guess. I run a 0.5m into the LD1+ from the UAE23 too.

Other than ODAC ($150), anyone compare the HifiMeDiy Sabre USB DAC to other similar devices such as:
AQ DragonFly($250)
... or the newer ...
HRT microStreamer? ($180)

BTW (and correct me if I'm wrong, of course) ... on this TYPE of device, I don't see much "pure" DIY activity here our forum or other DIY communities (nope ... naked PCB kits and stuffed eBay PCBs from China don't count!). Could it be that at the low $$ these devices are now avail. -- plus the difficulty of SMT/SOP sizes, and economies of scale -- pretty much rule out these USB's in anything other than Eagle-only amusements?
