try not to take offence, hes probably not a raiders fan!
one thing i did notice was the quantity says 10pcs. if this was pcb only i would think thats close to right, but for 10 complete dac's? somethnig doesnt addup. the component values must be more than that for 10 units. (if anyone wants to go in on the deal i would be very interested to split the order up.)

It just seems to be too good of a deal. Add to that the fact that he has practically no feedback and it makes you wonder. On the face it looks great though. I guessed that maybe he was a member of this forum so I thought I would check it out a little. Thanks Tiroth. You're ok for a Chargers fan.

The seller indicated that it was a poor choice of wording....

You asked:
"Is this auction for 1 "set" or ten sets of DAC & PS?"

Vendor:
sorry! it's a wrong description. my meaning is I have 10 sets avaliable.

It looks like a bargain.

Yeah, it is short one input pulse transformer. But he probably intended to use the one that you can buy from Mouser for $4.

The idea of "reclocking" with a 256Fs XO is something that I have never been in favor of, although its use seems to be everywhere. Ditto for battery operation.

I bet if someone can read Chinese that you can go to "diyadudio.org" and read all about it. And 100 more just like it. Just a guess...........

Actually he has made accommodations for us english speaking folk. Thank you for that. Here is a link to a PDF of the schematic:

here is a link to the manual:

and here is the parts list:

I am not very knowledgable about digital so if someone were to say "yes this is pretty good work" or "no it sucks" it would be helpful. I have built my entire sound system except for my CD transport ( Cal Delta ) and DAC ( Cal Gamma ). I would like to upgrade the DAC. I think I'm missing something off the top using the Gamma DAC. This kit would seem to be just what the doctor ordered. Thanks either way.

If you do buy, one, let me know and I will help you out with the SPDIF transformer part.
