Hi,

I think I'm about to buy this DAC:http://www.ebay.com/itm/DAC-decoder-AK4399-WM8805-Coaxial-optical-input-Assembled-board-DAC9-by-weiliang-/140939706103?ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:US:1123[/URL]

Just wanted to know if this is the current recommendation in this thread? It comes with NE5534 opamps. I use a tube amp that I built so I don't really want an opamp, but if its necessary then I want one that suits a tube sound?

Not really interested in buying transformers for the outputs and I hear that foregoing the opamps and going direct out via a resistor is not recommended so I guess I'm stuck with opamps. I've voiced my concerns to the seller (Minishow) and he asks which opamps I would like to replace the NE5534.... would love suggestions and also someone to clarify that this is the right single AK4399 board to buy, I have seen the dual implementation of the AK4399 from the same seller but am not sure it is worth the extra money?

Simple and positive answers only please on a postcard.... stu

Never tried the double AK4399 one but I don't like much how it is decoupled...

In general the better opamps you can use on the DAC9 are LME49710, IMHO, particularly the metal can version (LME49710HA).

Yes the I2S card seems to be good but

I have a dream
about a AK4399 with local regulators .
A regulator for the Digital DVDD
A regulator for AVDD
A regulator for each channel VDDL and VDDR
.....for the VREF !!!!

A four layers PCB .....

Cms components ......

Thanks Clave,

Do you think I should ask the seller to supply the LME49710HA or should I buy this myself, how easy is it to switch out the supplied NE5534 with the LME49710HA?

And, does anyone know if the xmos usb board supplied my minishow works with Mac and Linux?

cheers Stu

I wanted to say that the akm4399 is a great chip it suits my taste, i have listened to most of the popular dac chips via i2s with cm6631a and settled for this, when i listen to it the musicians sound like they are in the room with you, there is a lot of talk about es9023 but i say that on my system it lacked soundstage definition with centre vocals being pushed back a bit, akm4399 has full soundstage with my system.
