Default Borbely HB-DAC1704 V. 1.01


Does anyone have a copy of the HB-DAC1704 V. 1.01 datasheet? I have lost my old copy somewhere and and cannot remember the SPDIF pin in configuration.

Secondly, has Erno Borbely passed on? The website has been down for a long time, but I have seen no notices....

Yes, I am very happy that Erno is still around - I was feeling worried that he had apssed on with no one noticing such a great talent! Thanks Merlin!

Thanks for the datasheet Gluca!

Much appreciated - unfortunately it is the Mk 2 version, whereas I have the Mk 1 version with very different (and unmarked) pin layout

As to the sound of the DAC it as ever is highly dependent on PS and IV stage, but I got it sounding good when I was using it. I have been using a DEQX digital crossover (with Jensen output transformers) for some time now, so it's quite different.

I just found these parts sitting around, and thought I may be able to make a friend happy with a new DAC....also found a couple of Lundahl LL1674 trafos, so a passive I/V stage - ala Rakk DAC coming up

Thanks again/
