Default DAC kits & schematics? Is there a really good?

I am looking for a DAC kit or schematic, i could make pcb myself too so pure DIY is allright too.

Unfatiqueing and a bit warm wouldn't do bad at all, something nice enought to connect zoneplayer zp80:


"For testing I connected Sonos ZP80 player's digital out via Siltech G6 Golden Ridge digital cable into my Mark Levinson 390S CD-processor's digital in. This was to assess Sonos system's performance as a transport, using the same ML 390s 24bit/352.8kHz DAC as I normally use when listening CDs.

Result was startling, i.e. I could barely hear any difference."

-Does anyone have recommendations for a really good DAC?

I would have to give Peter's TDA1543 a very high recommendation. I just built this DAC as a kit but I believe you can buy just a bare PCB. I'm still burning my DAC in so I'm not quite ready to publish a detailed review but so far I'm VERY impressed!
