AKM also have great receiver-chip! (AK 4114)

Wow! Their are hundreds of posters who can try DIR9001 vs CS8416, or, CS8416 with upsampling vs no upsampling side by side who would strongly beg to differ with you. I also upsample my AK4395 modified DEQ2496 with an SRC2496 and it sounds better at 88.2. But still not quite as good as having a DIR9001 right on the board.

If it aint broke dont fix it. OK. When you are on to a winning combination it should not be mucked around with.
So you have this DAC?

I was asked for some photos of what I have done.
You can see the 22000uf capacitors. The bridge rectifiers have been removed from the board and I have mounted different bridge rectifiers off the board before the caps. It should be self explanatory. You can also see the Silmics decouping the op-amp.....

I have 2 receivers at present WM8804 and CS8416 so I could switch between them, the WM8804 was better sounding to me, but using CS8416 because it has multiple inputs.
need to try the WM8805.

"So you have this DAC"
I've ordered one.
