Default DIY DAC Kit

Hi All,

What would people make of the following kitset?

http://www.diyfidelity.com.au/index....cbc9f50fb89452

Has anyone seen/bought/heard one of these?

Have shifted my music collection to a Sonos system, which is OK for casual listening outside etc., but am planing to driving my Aleph5/VAF speakers from one of the soon to be released ZP80s:

http://www.sonos.com/products/zoneplayer/zp80/

Thus my plan is to make a DAC + (unbalanced->balanced) unit to drive the Aleph directly from the digital out of the Sonos.

The second half I planed on using a X-type preamp section, the DAC/digital part I am blissfully ignorant about :-(

I note Peter's fondness for the TDA1543 ...

his might represent a relatively easy solution.

Thoughts from the learned ones!

Cheers
mark

why use opamps? the best opamp is no opamp and 8 x TDA1543 will drive any amplifier with ease !!

Output imepdance around 270 Ohm. That is enough......

But this kit kan be modified to use without opamps of course

Just leave them out and tap the signal straight from the Rload.....

Yeah.... I'd like to know if the DIYFidelity DAC kit is worthwhile or if anyone has ever used it.

There's nothing resembling a virus. There's no script or anything else that can cause harm, at least not on the start page. It must have to do with the settings of the browser. That's the first thing I do when I (re)install Windows, spend an hour configuring it. And only because Microsoft is an idiot and insists on making its software susceptible to viruses.

I had no problem.
