Question TDA1541AS1 or S2 Sources


Does anyone have or know of suppliers with stocks of the Philips TDA1541AS1 or S2 DAC Chip? I have read that prices are high, but I have been unable to find any for sale at any price!

Thanks in Advance,

Default Avoid TDA1541 without the A !

Same post as in the other topic about CS8412CP / TDA1541A and maybe useless info for some but nevertheless:

Tip: never buy TDA1541 without the A !!!

It is absolutely not comparable to the TDA1541A, TDA1541A/N5, TDA1541A/S1 or TDA1541A/S2. In fact it is bad news this one.The versions with A are the debugged devices.

TDA1541 ( without the A ) was meant to be used with a SAA7220P/A instead of the SAA7220P/B. After discovering errors in the design Philips revised the chip and it went on with the A behind its name. Same for the SAA7220 that got the B.
The extra N5,S1 and S2 indicate tighter specs. Especially the S1 and the S2. Socalled Silver Crown and Gold Crown.

The problem with Reichelt and diyparadiso is that you don t know if the TDA1541A are normal / S1 /S2 series.

I guess Reichelt TDA1541 is the normal serie (to cheap to be anything else) but I dont know for diyparadiso ...

That accounts for the 1543, not for the 1541..
