"The SAA7220P/C has been specifically designed for better performance for satellite (32kHz) applications."
Just remember: in theory there's no difference between theory and practice. But in practice it usually is quite a bit difference... Bob Pease

Bought two on eBay and plugged one in my CD880.

Sounds very pleasant and involving but not honest.

Lots of low order harmonics.

Perfect SAA-os-chip for non-os-TDA-sound-lovers.

Best combined with non-A-TDA1541.

Trying all kinds of strange experiments can be nice but what is the use of trying a 32 kHz sample rate satelite-radio chip in a cdplayer ? You probably needed a cause to turn on your spectrum analyzer

You could have known its use if you would have downloaded its datasheet:

Isn`t a 8-1543-stack-non-os-DAC a strange experiment ?

Who cares what the chip was made for, if it plays nice music ?

Also it was not made for, but optimized for.
