Default DAC design | First step: SPDIF receiver

Hello everyone,

As I'm new on the forum I think I should present myself.
So, I'm student in an engineering school (however most focus on mechanic...) and I'd like to improve my electronic knowledge leading a DAC design project.
I must admit I remain a pure "newby" in electronic, but I'm disposed to spend a lot of times: I'm there to learn!

The DAC will be used in conjunction with:
  • A CD player with SPDIF output.
  • A dedicated PC (I have not chosen yet the way to interconnect them).
    (none permanent list)

Nowadays I try to define the project in the broad lines and I hope you could give me some advices:[list][*]A SPDIF receiver based on Cirrus Logic CS8416.[*]I have not chosen the filter yet (maybe a NPC filter)...[*]I'm hesitating between Texas Instrument PCM1704, DSD/PCM2794 or Analog Device AD1955: I really need some help.
What do you think about these choices ?

However, currently my main matter of concern is the SPDIF receiver. I'm looking for solution to prevent jitter issue.
Any advice is welcome !

Best regards

Fred

The CS8416 is a good choice but if you only have two inputs you might want to consider the AKM AK4117. It has two inputs as opposed to the eight on the CS8416.

TDa1543 would constituean economic and "esay-to-go" alternative,but I'm looking for something else.

Indeed, I don't need the 8 inputs of the CS8416.

However, does the AK4117 performs as well as the CS8416 ?

Can't say, I've never used it but I doubt its worse than the CS841x range.

I already know your website, and find your word pretty impressive.

I was looking at your USB receiver yesterday, but I still hesitating to use a USB interconnect...

You see a better quality alternative to the CS8416 ?

There was but it is no longer available. As I said the AK4117 is probably at least as good as CS8416.

Just a little correction of the main post: read "PCM1794" and not "PCM2794".
