Great tread !

My JVC is on the way.
I am interested in i2s output, luvdunhill say:

In LC7862 datasheet is different pin "names" than in CS8412
I am thinking to avoid spdif and build transport and NOS DAC in one enclosure, maybe upgrade to TDA1541 later.

Franz Gysi,
do you still use your "Super Pro" DAC with Aikido output, or different configuration now ?

Zigis.

Hi Zigis

Unfortunately there is a LC78601 inside, no I2S out available.

I did experiment with "Super Pro" and Broskie Cathode follower (not Aikido), but for some reasons there was limited bandwith in higher frequencies.

Actually I use standard "Super Pro" and plan to attach transformers to the balanced outputs of the CS4398.

I cannot find the analog output level in the CS4398 datasheet, but I think a AIKIDO has to much gain to connect to a CS4398.

BTW: the Super Pro is already a very fine DAC. Just replace 6 electrolytic caps by good bipolar caps and go on!

Regards
Franz

Any good online polish to english translator? (SYSTRAN ?) There´s millions of hints about Shigaclone mechanical construction here that I would love to know by myself

Thanks

Zigis.
The spdif output from this chipset is very high quality so it is not as big a loss as it seems. My RCEZ32 based Shigaclone easily matches my SCD-777ES as a transport for CD playback.

The Wolfson WM8804 is an excellent spdif receiver, and Twisted Pear Audio sells a receiver module using this chip for a very reasonable price - this will give you the I2S signals you want. They also have some Buffalo dacs protos available that take spdif directly and I suspect this would be an absolutely killer combo.

I also have NOS TDA1543 DAC available that takes SPDIF directly.
The DAC has been favourably reviewed on 6moons last year: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/a...e5/system.html

and is available both in Premium and basic versions:

For those who work on a transport suspention, here how it's done in Levinson ML31.5, which was inspiration to what I did in my transport:

Actually the Buffalo DAC protos seem to all be taken. There will be another board run soon from what I understand. I would guess that the first small run was to prove things out. There were the minor, but to be expected errors in the first run that are being corrected (labeling only issues).

I've been following this as that is my intent. I am going to replace my NAD S500 with a Shingaclone/Buffalo setup. My JVC is in Quebec now and will be coming in country next weekend via a co-worker who's mother lives north of the border. I will need to be patient for the second run of Buffalos as there was no cash in the toy account to make the first run happen.

On another note, I am intending to make a screw cd mount like the ones mentioned earlier. I know that those were made using a manual machine which is pretty labor intensive. I may be able to get some cranked out on our CNC if I talk nice to our machinist. If not, I will just make 1 for myself.

Dave
