Obviously it depends on how you lay everything out, mine is currently setup on a board which measures: 500 x 300mm and the 4 DAC boards measure 110mm high. I'm also using 3 PSU's and a SPDIF input board.

Thanks. I was thinking of a layout similar to the one Doede shows in #1.

It is in mho the best dac I heard. Just sold a totally tweaked v-dac......that little one had space, pinpoint and so on...(and even was better then an Altmann dac) ....but the dddac .... Is another story......it is the beautiful girl standing before you in the most beautiful lingerie........but then for the ears. The secret in audioworld......sssshhhhhht.
Hello Jan,

Interested to read how you find 1 board vs 4 boards. Also auricap vs mundorf sgo.

I have recently ordered the 5v and 12v psu kits to power my single board dddac.

Before this dac, I was running doede's 120chip paralleled dddac1543 mk2 usb. very nice sounding dac, even though was feeding it a very sub-optimal high-current power supply.

I heard Doede and a group of dddac'ers in Germany tried 240chips paralleled!

Anyways, if possible, are DDDAC1794 NOS users able to please post some photos of how they have implemented their builds so far please? Quite interested in this.

Cheers!

I'm going to order soon

Has anyone compared the dddac1794 against the Benchmark DAC1?

Hi dogears,

Great stuff. Am sure you will not be disappointed.

I have tried the Benchmark DAC1 HDR on my system (4-way GOTO horn system) and while being resolute and dynamic, all music had digital edge to it (overly 'sharp' and 'crisp'). Doesn't sound 'natural' in comparison to the dddac.

Very subjective.. I understand

There's 1 currently for sale locally and I am very tempted to get it just for reference and probably tweaking (cap replacement) It's being sold for ~EUR518

I think I am the sole DDDACer here in my country I went only up to 16chips but the sound is already 'analog' like with 'scary bass' [very natural sounding i.e.] lines. 240chips... maybe as good as an expensive turntable setup already huh?!

Do you use SPDIF or USB? If you are able to use USB. I would suggest getting something like the ODAC as a reference (not tweakable really) But it is quite a good DAC especially for the money. I find it sounds a little forward. But it sure retrieves a lot of detail from the music. Since 518 euro is quite a lot of money just to have a reference. Essentially I'm posting because I found out recently that it is quite handy to have a reference.
