Default Peter van Willenswaard's DAC??

Hey yall,

Is Peter van Willenswaard's DAC, mentioned on the Joelist as having been very impressive at the Triode Festival, on line anywhere - as in a schematic or a kit?

Mike

The PCB has the typical colour of an Audionote DAC. And I see some tubes....
Who is Peter van Willenswaard again?

Peter van Willenswaard has designed quite a few excellent sounding amps and preamps ( AT832 !!! ) in the past for Audio&Techniek magazine amongst others. He also wrote in some audiorelated magazines as a technical reviewer/journalist etc. Nowadays he has his own small audio-company in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Forgot the name, something with Audio***** or *****audio.

That DAC might be the best but I think it looks like @#$%.

Smelling a rat, Elso?

PVW is an audio journalist, isn't he?

I do recall his name from various Dutch audio mags...

Cheers,

Looks can be deceiving.

From what I see, he could have made it even better, but run out of space

Frank was very close, it's: Audiomagic

If you need the adress or telephonenumber please say so, Mike.

Peter, I just don't like the different coloured PCB's, the loose wiring and the small extra PCB's. It is a prototype or a mix of an existing DAC with several heavy modifications. You think it looks OK !?!? If he ran out of space he could have made/bought another bigger case.

Good sound is important but for me it has to be well built as well. ( not just from an esthetical point of view ).

It looks better than my DAC http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...629#post281629

But seriously, it looks like work in progress or a protoype.
