Default Searchable database for DAC lists

I find a lot of HTML based dac listings, but nothing with a database back end.

I have created a fully searchable database here.

This might not be 100% up to date, but I will welcome any additions people want to add.

Please PM me with any additions.

Thanks.

Plenty of views, but no comments as yet?

I guess it's not that good!

One comment ...

I looked for CDM2/29 and came up with no results.
you have to look for cdm-2/29 which is a strange way of doing it (as far as i am concerned)

You're correct.

There seems to be some confusion over the terminology.

The Phillips mechanism is referred to both CDM12 and CDM-12 (not to mention the CDM12/x variants).

I will look at improving the search however I'm not quite sure how I can do that as yet!

Thanks for the feedback.

Now fixed.

Removed '-' and spaces from data - so searching for CDM4/27 will give you just that.

Searching for CDM4 will give all the CDM4 variants e.g. CDM4/27

Searching for CDM will yield all CDM mechanisms of various model numbers.

Searching for TDA1541 will show all CDPs with TDA1541 DACS (and the variants, e.g. TDA1541-S1 etc.).

You can also search for burr brown etc.

Default nice

very nice, this has been needed for a while.

Suggestions? how about increasing it to DVD players as well, since many use them as CDPs? How about adding a field for op amps?

How do you update it? Is it open to the public, or do we send info to you?

After a little experimenting with keywords I find it a very valuable database.

Thanks for the effort!

Thanks.

I can add additional fields, that's not a problem.

Would be very time consuming to add each and every opamp used (there's over 2000 entries) however it could be done. I may look at automating this, but not sure how...

I can export the database to a .csv file, where it could be manipulated in Excel - maybe an Excel expert could come up with some magical macros (assuming somebody can provide the opamp data).

As for updates, I have restricted updating to myself for obvious reasons.

But I will be happy to accept updates via email and enter them into the database. (It's a trivial process).

Fair play Tony, impressive.

I cannot get any listings for ESS Sabre DAC's. Have these been included?

Weiss, OPPO, Wyred for Sound, Peachtree etc

Another expansion to the database is to include DIY DAC kits maybe?

These have not been included.

I'll be happy to add them if you / someone wants to provide the details?
