Default TDA1541 DAC chips on ebay fake or geniune

Are the TDA1541A dac chips on ebay real ?
Can someone recomend a seller that has supplied a geniune deal, or if the majority is geniune, I guess post who to avoid.

Thanks.
Srinath.

As lordearl says, it is not the chips that are faked, that is probably impossible and still function. The fakes you have to worry about are the premium grades, e.g. double crown or s1, etc, as it is very easy to take a standard grade and add the crowns or the s1 grade symbols. If you get a standard grade tda1541a from a seller with good feedback it will almost certainly be legit. Probably cost between $15 & $20. If you go for a $90 double crown it is probably a standard with some silk screening.

+1 - plus converting a bog-standard TDA1541 to an 'A' suffix part by stencilling.

Default Like this one

TDA1541 SAA7220 CS8412 Fiber Coax USB DAC Kit WLX | eBay

I was just looking to buy somehting like this one for example -
And an unrelated question -

Does TDA 1543 based DAC Kit's sound good ? Its a easier kit to build - It has fewer power inputs needed.

Thanks.
Srinath.

Also I've seen dac kits with 4 or 8 tda1543's as well as some with just 1 ...
What is the reason for having many vs just 1 ... I've never seen a dac with a lot of chips ...
Cool.
Srinath.
