Hi Bas (Lightyear),
The one being sold is the SPDIF version. I am hoping the price would go down substantially but yes, the price is quite high for a reference but the BMDAC1 is one of the most common reference in reviews.
I've been eyeing the ODAC as well since I already have the O2 amp.
Thanks much for the suggestion... I might just go on with the preorder
Cheers.

edit: I forgot to mention that I also need a preamp for my AKSA power amp so I thought the DAC1 is a good choice since its already a very good DAC/PRE.

Noted chief DD But I'd like not to get that BMDAC1 due to the additional cost I'll pre-order the E-DAC however and rest assured I'll be posting feedback here. In the meantime I'll still waiting for the go signal :P

Great, I would really would,like to see some images and reviews here. I know that they are out there

on another note: there has been some questions and comments about the quantization noise with my dac, as I am using the same clock for the bit clock as well for the master clock ( remember, this was done to avoid the digital filter). I have done several tests and am almost completed ( need to understand it a bit better as well, so what to measure?). I will post some images from the AP system next week. I can already say, that indeed you can actually see a correlation between sampling frequency and the Quantization noise. also, that it is well within limits. never the less a very interesting aspect. I still want to do some listening tests around this theme. stay tuned

Default Photo's

Here's a few photo's of my recent build.

I'm using Doede's SPDIF board as my main source being fed by a modified Sonos ZP80 (PSU Mods with Paul Hynes linear regulator boards). I started off with one DAC board and two PSU's but now have four boards and three PSU's. I also have the Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil caps on the output and I've also grounded the neg outputs.

Great! and thanks, more to follow I hope
this grounding of the negative is intriguing...
I will run some AP test over that and post back if it does any measurable thing as well, which might give a clue why it sounds better? Ian, how would you describe it?

You'll never guess what the postman delivered today...
Iphone 4 as size reference. Quite suprised by the size of the psu. And the transformer. Hence the reference.

One of my sons. Helping with the denuding of the caps. He got to solder as well and really enjoyed doing that.
