Peranders,
Again, thanks a lot for your comments and help!

Algar-emi,
I hope Guido Tent should be informed on your results in building the Tube DAC. I think your construction technique is getting more and more refined, and yours is going to be the best example on how to built Guido Tent's Tube DAC project.

Congratulations!
pedro

Hi guys,

My DAC is also finished. If anybody needs PCB artwork I'll be happy to share it. It sound wonderfull! Better than anything I've listened so far (well, maybe not better than AN DAC5).

I tried Svetlana 6N1P, Philips ECG 6922, russian 6N23P, Siemens E88CC... I'm extremely happy with the 6N23P. I tried Audio Note copper foil 0.47uF at the output, but I like Jensen more than Audio Note. Audio Note is more detailed, but Jensen is suited for more music genres.

Guido, thanks for all the help!

This is SRPP output stage I've been playing with. I'm playing with it mainly because my preamp (Aleph P) has very low input impedance, and SRPP has a lower output impedance and higher gain. I still didn't connect it to the DAC, due to a lack of time, but when I do I'll post my opinion here. It is the clone of Audio Note DAC 4 output stage, so I guess it can sound bad. Here I have Mundorf Supreme Silver/Gold, and I'm planning to hear them in the DAC.
