I have opened the DAC and on the input there are a black square shape like a suggar pice with two input and two output. On the output side there are one resistor paralell. Perhaps this is a small toroidal?

The input circuits seems to be CS8414-CS, is that good?

Do you now a Computer DVD-drive with manoeuvre buttons and SPDIF out?

Cool The DAC takes SPDIF

I have now talked to him who constructed the DAC and he said there is no problem to connect my DVD-Rom SPDIF direct to it.
He says that extern units donít have problems with Jitter when
the DAC construction have very high end, cost circuits who eliminate this.
Itís going to be interesting to hear how it sounds.

Default 5V out of spdif

Actually you *might* want to try just hooking the cd drives digital out directly to the DAC. Yes it is outputting 5v, but you will probably find the DAC can handle that kinda of voltage.

I have hooked up a AudioAlchemy DDE1.0 directly to the 5v spdif out of a drive and had no problems.

Your milieage may vary but its worth a shot IMHO.
