It's also used by Oracle (even display is the same) as well in Mephisto.

But, I believe that the sound is better without a lid in place. And definitely blue LED.

Peter-

I'm certainly interested. I remember your previous thread and looked at the Daisylaser / Homeoptics page. If I understand and remember correctly, the thing has a DAC so that if one builds a power supply and assembles it, you have a working CD player. Is that correct? And in your case, you also have an outboard DAC that you use with it, right?

I guess the digital output (SPDIF?) is readily available for use with outboard DACs?

Thanks. Good idea!

You are correct. The module has a built in DAC and although I did not try it some comment it's pretty good sounding. There are also Spdif and I2S outputs.

Hi Peter,

I'm fool enough to try this

I would need specific schematics to build the PS and any other accessory electronic hook-ups (don't have any experience with digital but lots with tubes)

Thanks

Mike

Hello guys and Gals, I am very interested in this and I am interested in the Group buy. Here is the DAC I am thinking of using.

Click the image to open in full size.

And here is the website it is available as a kit for $200 US

Any feedback, comments?

Anthony

Thanks Brian.

Coulomb,

Since you are building the player from scratch it would be good idea to place the DAC inside player (since it's so small), bypass Crystal receiver and use I2S interface directly. The DAC will cost you less than $50 in parts, especially when you can buy those TDA1543 chips for less than a buck.

Anyway, I,ve heard good comments about Scott Nixon DAC. Fred Dieckman built it too and was very satisfied.
