Thanks, Thought there might be someone running "Blue Light Specials" and was U.S. based. I guess we just have to choose between "get it now" and "get it cheap"

Bob - I'm sure these same disconnects are available from suppliers in the states. I just haven't looked hard enough. I'm sure Mouser, or Newark have an equivalent, but the soft, silicone/soft plastic sleeve are really nice and make handling them easier. I've got a good stock of them now though. I recently bought some right-angle disconnects to try, but short of using a vise I can't figure out a good way to crimp them. A normal crimper won't work! Oh well.

1. I do not claim that this is state of an art model.
2. I fully agree that leaving 2 bare terminals of mains cap and socket is dangerous, though I've seen it in some factory audio/ video components as well and moreover, it's ok for me in this dac where nobody except me will take off the top cover.

well at least I'm sure indeed it's a different pcb, different chip (AK4398) + chip for usb has been added, nevertheless it is still 80% the same schematics. Pls see attached pdfs.

240 AC volts needs to be treated with the utmost of respect, It will kill you before you even don't want to know it.
with all respect to the forum and to you, don't make a panic out of nothing and leave your offensive comments with you!

That is expensive. I can get 100pcs for less than 5 quid here in the UK.

This probably should be in the techniques thread - but I've pretty much given up on the pre-insulated connectors. The most economical method with U.S. parts has been a combination of the following.

Quick Disconnects here

Heat shrink Tube here
....available in colors or all black.

Larger size long enough to overlap small tube.

I've just had too many crimped wires come apart so I solder everything.

Custom results with the ability to disassemble if needed.

The only other good value packages I've found for pre-insulated pieces are here but their shipping charges up the cost. Radio Shack "Ship to store" saves a few bucks.

I always solder to the disconnect too, just to make sure there's a solid connection. I've thought of using heat shrink tubing on them, but have never tried. HS tubing adds a degree of security to the connection as well, and looks professional. Gives it a nice 'tight' appearance. Yeah - I'm afraid we've wandered a bit OT.

For those that live in the US and have an ACE Hardware store close by, they sell these connectors by the piece (i.e., not in a package but individually).

Yes, and please note that what they call "High Temp" actually cost a little less.

In the USA, check out Lowes, Home Depot, etc. They have them in blister-packs at reasonable prices.

Personally,I buy them in 100s as they are much cheaper that way.
