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 . 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
daniel

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

Hi,
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

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).
Suggestions?
best regards
daniel

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.
