Default Audio Alchemy Dac Man

A quick questions or two...

A friend gave me an Audio Alchemy DAC MAN with "if it works and you want it, make me an offer..."

Does anyone know anything about this DAC and what it may be worth?

Also, it came without a power supply. The power connector seems to be a stereo mini-plug, so I imagine that there were 2 voltages with a common ground. Does anyone know anything about the power supply?

Thanks for the help...

Tell him it doesn´t work but you still want it.
Sorry, don´t know about the DAC.

I would love to "keep" it but he's too smart to be fooled that easily!

Tone,

I can do the tweaks once I get it up and running, if it works. I still need to know what the power supply voltages are though!

Thanks...

I still have a Dac In a Box, although I never tried to run it. I'll post a pic tomorrow and I think it operates on a single 12V supply.

IIRC, it uses the CS8412 and the 8pin CS4330. Sorry, don't know what it is worth.
