Default TDA1543- How many to use?


I have 16 TDA1543's available for use. What is teh optimal number for teh zero-oversampling DAC everyone raves about?

Should I use all 16 and get better signal/noise ratio?

Would one CS8412 still suffice for all 16?

Would I need to reclock for each TDA1543 (i.e. 16x 74hc74) or can I simply place one 74hc74 between the CS8412 and the 16 TDA1543?

Is the TDA1543 best run at 5V or 8V?

Thanks for helpful hints!

Hi Ryan,
In my experience one is the optimal number for the TDA1543.
The high's get kind of smeared when pallelling TDA1543's. Also I like +5V supply the most. I posted a schematic that I liked best.
If you are asynchronously reclocking it is best to use two flip-flops in series to countermeasure the metastability effect. See Feddes site for the idea. Click on the schematic of the DAC. Best use 74VHC74 (two flip-flops in one package. )

As another option you could use one stereo pair per channel in a balanced configuration i.e. one device per channel.

I prefer 3 paralleled, the best distorsion spectrum, dominant second, a bit of third and that's all.
The same has been confirmed on listening tests.
One only is a bit crude, rough in highs and a lot of 3rd harmonic.
Try different biasing and load resistors.
Good luck,
