wm8740
 
do any one have experiences in using the dac chips of "Wolfson Microelectronics "?
for example, WM8740, it has 117db SNR, 24bit 192kHz...
can anyone share the experiences ?
thanks

I heard some rumour that Wolfson is inside X-box but I have never heard of Wolfson in any high-end.

I have 2 samples, thought they were cool but cooler chips have arrived...

Hi weissi,

Did you ever get the wm8716?

weissi 1st March 2003 12:55 AM

yes, now i got them..... but I havenīt used them anyway - no time for this things yet..... I am still on the search for an "easy to mod" soundcard where I may replace the onboard dac with them....

Wolfson WM8740 DAC
 
Hi,
While at my dealers showroom I stumbled upon a Arcam CD33 FMJ series Up-sampling CD player. It uses the Wolfson WM8740 DAC. Arcam apparently gave up the ring DAC.
The DAC chip is available from Wolfsons website for $ 8. Funny to see pricing in $$ instead of GBP's or Euro's on a UK based company's website.;) Anyone has a listening experience with this DAC???

I Reckon They Are Good.
 
A while back, I did some improvements to a cheap (AUS$200) DVD player that used WM8746 DACs.
With good supply bypassing, the results were quite outstanding, and better than most CD players.
For the money, these chips work very well indeed.

Eric.
