Any toughs on the Audiophonics PCM1796 or DAC7 be weiliang
I would like some feedback on these 2 DACs...(im curently trying to make a DIY
"Reciever" aka S/PDIF DAC-preamp-2 x LM4780(mono mode)power amps(witch are more likely to be from Audiosector).
DAC7 by weiliang

I plan on upgrading them with beter caps/resistors and OP amps.
Any feedback and other sugestions are welcome.
Thank you.

I have tried the stock DAC7 by weiliang. It sounds very good. However I think the power supply implementation runs extremely hot and filter caps and other components are too close. I have a concern over that. The pcb already has some good components. Do you have a specific plan of what to upgrade?

Actualy ive given up on building/modding..a DAC from a kit.After reading for a while it apears its best to buy a readybuilt looking at the Arcam rDAC and Schiit Bifrost..(still cant decide witch but i have plenty of time since im not planing on a purchese till i have the cash for the whole system).
But thx for the feedback.
