Merrisa --- Each of these pictures is attached to a web site. Maybe you can find a bargain in the mix.

Thank you. I have located a set of RCA's which are silver plated over OFC. Just waiting on them and the wire to be delivered. I am going with 26 gauge 4n silver wire inside of cotton shoe laces. I will save $5.00 a foot for the wire doing it this way. Also found a website that sells custom printed heatshrink for a good price too. I will post a pic when I get them done.

Ok another question.... I have the cables made, I really like the sound, 75' of 26 gauge silver wire cost me $36.00, rca's solid OFC silver plated $8.00, rest of the parts around $13.00 to make it look nice and professional, including heatshrink with gold printing of my last name on it.

Now, I want to build a DAC with spdif, usb, and optical. I would like to be able to switch from digital to optical with a rotary switch. I would like a tube buffer on the output. I stopped looking on google and ebay when I started to get a headache. Any suggestions for a decent sounding DAC?

I want to be able to input my iPad, computer or any other usb device, run digital signal direct from a computer, my spouse's Apple computer, ect. I would also like to put it in a Plexiglas case to show it off. I was thinking of just making a case with a wood front, but I was wondering about grounding issues. Maybe 1/8" wood panels with a steel plate laminated between them and a steel frame?

Is there any ETA on the 2U Pesante (Maximally Vented) chassis being back in stock? Any pre-orders?

Default ACA Kits

Is there an eta on having the ACA kits in stock?

Also, would diyaudio consider offering the ACA heat sinks for sale separately? I enjoy crafting my own enclosures, but dread buying heat sinks from Hong Kong due to shipping damage and expense.

Thanks, Henry

We have a wide range of small cases, you could consider using plexiglass on the top instead of the metal or alu covers that comes with them.

I'm hoping the next batch will be shipping by mid December. Half of the ones arriving are already pre-ordered so if you want to secure one consider pre-ordering in case there is a rush on them when they actually turn up.

The next batch after that batch will be in about 4 months from now (Conservatively, March 2014).

Might even offer some in black just for pre-order - I'll announce that over email to the store mailing list though.

We'll have some standard heatsinks available in the next batch (March 2014) - but they won't have the pre-drilled holes, you'd have to tap them yourselves.

The first batch of ACA kits were made with Heatsinks from Heatsink USA. They are very nice people and we can recommend their services.
