Thanks

Where can I find some photos of the board mounted to the panels of DAC's?

I was hesitant to post the pictures of my way of attaching the exaU2I to back of the box since this is just a test box but here it is. And a picture of the whole setup-ackDAC plus Owen's I/V(on top of the transofrmers is a baltic birch board with an ODAC).

These are very impressive pictures, Nikola! I'm really happy to see that exaU2I is used for a very high-end project. I see that every imaginable care is taken to minimise power line noise. Great choice for the I/V stage. You've selected the best components, and you've implemented a very professional layout.

Regards,
George

Thanks for the kind words, indeed a lot of time and efforts were put into it, there is still some stuff to be finished. I will post more pictures when it is all completed.

Just a quick note that i finally connected the EXA to the Buf3 after much swearing at the mini usb connector.

To be honest i didn't expect much difference from the WaveIO. I was very wrong. Those are simply on different planets. This is by far the most spectacular addition to my system this year. Thanks EXA.

Analog_sa, thank you for comparing exaU2I and WaveIO! exaU2I delivers top sound quality because of the integrity of the overall design. We are aiming to eliminate bottlenecks caused by players, drivers, the operating system and the computer-DAC interface.

I am glad that you are enjoying the results of our work!

Regards,
exa065

Forgot to mention the test was definitely not biased in Exa's favour: the WaveIO had a separate transformer and a Jung-type regulator and also used my favourite USB cable, whereas the Exa had to do with USB power. As for the cable, the silly mini-usb socket forced the use of a cellphone data cable
