I just managed to get hold of a nakamichi dac101 12v for cars upon powerup into my home setup was quite suprised possible better than my own dac then music kind of skipped a couple of times and Silence????? dac has to led 48khz and 44.1khs it initially locked onto 44.1 and illuminated led now it flashes if you leave dac down powered for 2hrs it works for half an hour? I think its is a problem with clocks?? not v experienced in dig any one got any ideas???

Sorry, no idea of the faults.

That is some piece of kit you have there. Dual tda1541a s1's possibly in differential mode.



If i earned more I would buy this ebay one. Shame!


Kind regards,

I think there is a problem with a part that gets hot. Probably a bad soldering somewhere. Check the soldering of all parts, start with the one's that get hot (powersupply stuff). happens a lot.

I have one also. It does not like 48hz, will buzz and lock up. With a 12v 12ah battery it will last about an hour. With direct current from adapter and a 44.1hz feed, no problems. It has a 3 amp fuse, shouldn't it last longer?

Does anybody have more information about this beast ? Schematics or service manual ?

I have found one off eBay and it seems well built but for the moment, lacking sufficient technical info, I am reluctant to dismantle or mod it.

The only schematic I found is partial and contains only a drawing for the output stage.
