I have both, CS4398 and AK4396. If using opamp as analog stage, CS4398 is much better. When I change to transformer output, I like AK4396 much more than CS4398. Both DAC sound very very good with transformer. But AK4396 has more detail and thicker sound.

What tranformer did you use with the AK4396?

I tested them with UTC A20 borrow from my friend. Now I'm using unknow 1:1 pair of Russian military transformer which I think be acceptable in comparison to UTC.

Anyone can tell me if LL1585 will work for this DAC?

"I went directly by silver wire - from RCA hot to CS pin 9 (Rxp) , and from cold RCA to CS8414 pin 10 (Rxn)"

"The digital bypass. It is so audible - I can tell you - it is a real thick blanket being removed."

Someone tried to connect the CS8416 as the proposed in the link?

Is it safe to do? I'd love to remove the cap.

About my DAC - I made the unbalancer . The lampizator's stage I tried sounds like **** compared to this one. It benefits from the balanced output. I can highly recommend it!!

I did it with 6N6P that run at 18mA plate current.

I will do more tests and work before assembly. I will put a separate heater transformer, two rectifiers, bigger choke and better eletrolytics (or not any).

Here's the sweet sounding board again

Next attempts - Better power supply for the DAC - Sallas shunt regs for the chips, better electrolytics.

Broskie shows 1K following the diff output pins in his schematic. What value did you use?
