What's the N-K? My datasheets don't list this version. Are you sure AD (still) makes it?

Default analog

Hi Elso,

Analog Devices has the device still listed as available off stock (buy online). No price is given. Usually, this means that standard distributors such as Spoerle, AVNET, Rutronik, .... will carry the part.

Greetings,

Eric

Lightbulb AD1865N-K availability.

Hi Michael,
The K-version is the highest selection grade. It is a omission of AD that it is not listed in there latest datasheet. But all versions of the AD1865 are listed on the AD-website and the N-K version is the most expensive. It is in current production. And I just found out the N-K is also the best sounding, oooof!.

Default AD1865N-K availability.

Hi Eric,
I can not buy on line from AD as I don't have a <B>VAT number</B> being a individual, not a business.
Do you have experience buying on line from AD? The price for the online buy for the AD1865N-K is about US$ 43...........
I don't have connections with Spoerle or Rutronics.
I checked Avnet, www.farnell.com. www.newark.com {will never buy again from Newark; ridiculously high shipping costs not mentioned on the site} www.alliedelec.com and others.

Have you tried the TDA1541?

If yes how did it compare to the AD1865N-K?

Well, if you can't find it anywhere, only need one or two and are feeling immoral you could probably get *gasp* samples of it (AD only gives out 2 at a time), since the AD1865N-K is listed in it's DIP form as one which they give samples of.

I know some people don't like it when non-businesses order free samples, but hey, sometimes there's no other way.

Lightbulb Sound of TDA1541AS1 vs. AD1865N

Hi Flemming.
Please see also my old post(s) on the Audio Asylum
http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/twe...ges/40761.html
The Philips DAC has the least digital sound but is too polite for me. I missed the sparkle and bass power of the AD1865.
The K-version I obtained from Troels, <I>thanks again Troels!</I>, was just the the tweak I needed as the K has much better definition in the high's and the last trace of harshness is also gone.
I realise it <B>IS</B> a mattter of taste and how you like your music. I like it as realistic as possible, including dynamics, kick in the stomac, <B>POWER</B> as if the musicians are in the room, not in the room with the nabors.
But if you like the music euphonically coloured go for the Philips TDA1541AS1. One plus for the Philips is I have the impression it is less sensitive to jitter than the AD1865.
I will try the TDA1545 shortly.
Will I ever find the Holy Audio Grail?

Default TDA1541!!!!!!!!

Gag! Those are horrible parts. The use the I2S format, not right-justified as the ADs do. They sounded Ok 15 years ago, but are very poor performers by today's standards.

Anyone who needs those old dogs, send me an e-mail.

Anyone who needs help buying parts, e-mail me. Where there is a will, there is always a way. And a capitalist [joke].

Beware Jocko Homo, the cult of the 1541 zealously guard the status of their icon. If you find yourself in a dungeon, strapped down and forced to listen to Autobahn or O Superman on infinite repeat through a Linn Intek, don't say you weren't warned.
