Default Soekris 's DAC implementations

Hi,

A thread to know how to implement : volume control, filter, casing, shielding, powersupply, etc for the discrete R2R DAC made by Soekris:

Feel free to ask and answer. Regards, Eldam

The links are to the Australian website but it's easy enough to change location using "Change Country" at the top right of the page. The 2x7AC 5VA is also available from a UK based seller on eBay (more than 10 in stock) MCFM50 07 Multicomp Mini Toroidal 5VA 2X 7V | eBay
US: AN-0107 - 10VA 7V Transformer - AnTek Products Corp good price !

For alternative DC feeding possibility, some informations below & elswhere in the original thread: some mention noticeable difference. A simple torroid is a good enough starting point.

Pulse transformers if input Spidf (SE) choosed (Soekris's input post 41): PE-65612NL Pulse Electronics Corporation | 553-1580-5-ND | DigiKey or better (?)

Notice here than the first PE would have the best inter-windding capacitance which is the interisting point for chosing it- Dac itself has a the best jitter rejection possible due to the fifo, so jitter perf of the others pulse transformer do not matter with this DAC, so quietest noise is prefered over the best jitter perf for the input pulse transformer! Abraxalito input : read the thread)

SPIDF (AES) : Audio Note or Tribute traffos (sorry no cheaper refs yet ! but here surely sota noise rejection... cobalt core, etc)
TOSLINK: Toshiba RX modules advised for good quality: TORX177 for 5V and TORX147 for 3.3V

Connection shematics for the SPIDF; Reference DAC Module - Discrete R-2R Sign Magnitude 24 bit 384 Khz

Volume control (if the pot way is choosed) : "Any mono linear one from 1K to 10K, preferable high quality conductive plastic to avoid noise" (so just one mono linear pot control the two chanels) Soekris 's DAC implementations : I.E. : 3851A-282-103BL - BOURNS - POT, COND PLASTIC, 10KOHM, 20%, 1W | element14 Australia or P231-QC20BR10K - BI TECHNOLOGIES / TT ELECTRONICS - POTENTIOMETRE POUR PANNEAU 10K | Farnell France

Sort of pre voltage regulation to help PSSR for the embeded low noise LDO ?

Does just a shunt stabilizer could give better result than a super shunt with voltage regulation (as this function is managed with sota smt ldo into the pcb ?

Or just a snubber at the secondaries if AC is used instead DC as the design allow as well ?

I read somewhere than more than a standalone common self is good for filtering.

Some put a comon self before the primary but add one after the secondarie in a Pi filter as well, sometimes mixing it wit an another Pi with no comon filter !

Soekris is ok with the measurement, what can add a more complex PS before this DAC ?

Let it simple ?

May want to start with an R-core transformer instead of a toroid, for better line isolation/filtering.

They're hard to find in the 115v primary versions in the USA, but are available here:

I was going to just feed it AC, but now I'm wondering if adding a DC pre-regulator would be of any benefit.

Since the board will regulate anyway, I don't see a reason to use a fancy pre-regulator, seems like a 317 type should be fine, but I could be wrong.

I also started looking at remote controllable pots to handle volume control. Might buy a cheap ebay one.

The same here : I have a 6 V, have a 9V in my toolsbox (Selectronic & Audiophonics) .... but no 7 or 8 V !

will you put a snuber ?

Yeah, 7 and 8 V are not standard, but depending on your line voltage either 6V or 9V may work. I would expect an over rated 6.3V transformer would put out enough to power the DAC.

You could use the 9v, rectify, snub and preregulate to DC.
You could unwind some secondary turns to get down to 7-8V.
