NOS vs OS is the story behind that one. He likes OS.

He also says this Olifr DAC is the second best he's heard, so...

I'd like to try properly implemented OS too. Emphasis on the words "properly" and "implemented" (ie no 7220, but a better (more expensive) chip, sharing the same master clock, and fed from independent Salas shunts, etc.).

Haha - That's pretty much all of my ideas. Chip I'd try is PMD100.

I'm not so sure about that. NOS gave more top-end detail but still didn't match the two other players I'd heard which I thought were better. (Those were both OS) so it's not as clear-cut as that.

I have a PMD100 in the drawer waiting for me to get around to this very thing.

I'll post some piccies soon to show what I've done if anyone would like me to.

Lee.

That's a given Lee. We all love piccies. I'd sure love to see how you implement the PMD100 with the TDA1541A. It should be an amazing combination.

I'm new to digital electronics. I have owned a number of expensive DAC units, but no longer desire to spend thousands on digital equipment which seems to change and get cheaper all the time. There seems to be no place to find a good explanation between the different forms of digital input, eg TOSLINK, SPDIF, USB and I2S. My ultimate goal is to store my music in wav files and play them with a simple DAC. I read that I2S is the simplest format and it eliminates a lot of clocking issues etc. If I build this DAC, what else would I need to get the music data from a drive on my network to the DAC .

Hi msmart2b,

you need a converter to the I2S DAC input line e.g.


Normally the USB to I2S for the Mac/PC.
