HI everyone,
I need help about internal wiring for my TDA1543 dac. What do You use for the digital and analogue wire inside the dac.... I would need something of very good quality but for not too much money. And if I could by a few meters not few hundreds of meters - small quantity please and where to buy- I would be very gratefull for the information.
Thanks in advance and best regards

Hi Sparkle,

Nice looking DAC.

I recently built a Scott Nixon NOS DakKit. I used single strands from cat5 wire for the inputs and outputs. It is solid core copper and easy to use. I used some teflon coated silver plated copper for the power wiring from the battery. The teflon/silver/copper wire is cheap on EBAY. I stay away from silver on signal wires as it can be a bit bright on some systems. Both of these wires are cheap and sound good.

Let us know how it sounds when you get it hooked up...

thanks mourip for the reply
Cat5 is nice sounding - no doubt about that but I have currently Harbour Industries M17/94-RG179 MIL-C-17. It is silvered copper (stranded). It is a good cable (better than Cat5) but I need something really better. Something that is a way beyond CAT5 and RG179 but on the cheap side (if this could be possible) and I don't have no more ideas (since I don't want to buy some Kimber Silver Streak and cut the wires from it :whazzat: . RG179 is very good cable, but since the dac is very good sounding I must put something better.
Thanks again for the reply
best regards

All this wiring effort for a 1543 dac? Are you sure you're not overdoing it?

YES- I am absolutely positive about that- it is 16 bit dac but it could sound beutifully when done right. Right now my only problem is internal wiring :smash: :D

Single strand TEFZEL ?

sparkle 7th May 2005 01:27 PM

Hi, I would like single strand - but what is tefzel, how good it is and where to find it?

sparkle 7th May 2005 03:00 PM

Also ...... does anyone know where to find very good quality copper or silver bare(or within some enclosure) single strand wire around 20-22 awg. I would like to put it in some teflon tubing - maybe this would be good (something like audioquest I mean). :confused: :confused: :confused:
best regards

Teflon coated single strand silver plated copper. As to where to get it, RS and Farnell spring to mind but I am not absolutely sure as I've always got mine from work.
