I'm happy that you have a working DAC, now

Didn't told you to check transformer wiring?

Yes, and with the OPA827 on BD this thing sounds goooooood. Just getting ready to put in on a larger rig. The picture attached is an MTM that I built, veneered in 1/42 makore.

See, speaker building is my thing, not line level stuff. But, I'm learning.

That's a bdp-95 you see in the background. Let's compare them....

Oddly the 827 was my first choice also after testing with the 5532.
Sounds so good I havn't bothered to try anything else yet.
Glad you got it working.

Didn't tried yet AD797 but IMHO OPA827 is the best opamp I've heard so far.

Yours it's not the same 827, the one in BOM is OPA827 from TI/Burr-Brown which is a single...it's the successor of OPA627.

I realised my AD827 was not the same after i posted it, however I don't plan to be using an op amp in the future as I much prefer a discrete approach these days. I had great success with Giorgios (from TNT Audio) output stage on my TDA1541 DAC Just a matter of time before one of these is hanging off the end of this little gem.

hi guys.. i just bought this ak4396 kit off ebay (a little too late, i know)

i'm just wondering, how do we connect the transformer to the 13-15 supply voltage if we only have dual secondary transformer (judging by the 3 holes, i think it requires center tapped model)? can we just put the middle + & - wires together?

thanks in advance
