Gentleman, IT'S MINE DAC, The NirWanaDAC made by Peter Van Willenswaard
and i am very proud, indead it is a brilliant DAC.

I have given Peter van Willenswaard the assingment to build the BEST DAC OF THE WORLD.
And he's succeed in his assingment.
The buildperiod was just about one year, i would not have it sooner, i want a one year builperiod

Peter van Willenswaard is an author who write's for the American magazine Stereofile and many
Amp's and preamps are made by him and are wellknow in the netherlands and in America.
Several years he worked for Audio-Note and Philips did also appeal to his knowledge.

Hi Fons !

Aren't you carried a bit away now?

Specially for a phlosofical guy like you, I didn't expect such black & white statements

Any way, you seem to be a happy man, and that is what counts eh?

enjoy your DAC !!

doede,

maybe it's a little bit over the top, but it is a great DAC and
that does that DAC with me, forgive me.

The PvWDAC reads SPDIF and soon, i hope, it will read I2S

Is this dac based on the Mp dac? From hawk audio?

I still have to complete mine. Hope to implement is2 on it, as it will be a nice upgrade.

Got anything to do this weekend? I live in Zeeland, so a meeting is quickly set up. I`m quite curious how it sounds.`

Is2 is a foolproof way of upgrading, u can buy "wrong" sounding capacitors, and what not, but changing the digital bitstream link, will always have the same improvement on the sound.

Now all I have to find out how is2 will be able in my mp-dacIII

Ciao

Hello Fons,

Lucky you I am surprised that I didn't recognize Peter's name as you say
he has written for Stereophile. Maybe Peter will consider offering a kit so
the rest of us can build and have the "best DAC in the world" too

Kind regards

Mike
