V2 was already an improvement over V1, this while V1 was already a good DAC. V3 should be better than rev. 2.6 (pardon, V2.6). If V3 would not be an improvement it would not make sense to have it produced. Putting many hours in the design and testing would not make much sense. So I guess you could safely assume that we do our best to make it a good DAC. When in doubt don't join and make a better design

Think positive.

You guys keep amazing me ! Nearly 300 pieces is an unbelievable high number for a DIY effort. I have sent in a rev. 3.0.6 layout to Subbu and he is looking at it with sharp eyes. Changes are still possible and I feel great responsibility to make it a very good performing design. You all will have to have patience as I am in the process of moving houses right now. When 3.0.6 will be the final V3 I will post this.
Thanks for the warm welcome!

Man. I thought this would be a USB/SPDIF DAC but I was a little bit confused with all the diyaudio.com WebBrowser-Tabs opened with all these Informations and threads which are overwhelming me.

This would be a perfect dac but the only thing I am missing is USB input so I can connect it to my Laptop/PC with Windows/Linux over USB and can connect it to my Amp or directly to speakers!?

Man. This would be a nobrainer.

Sorry but I am a little bit confused.

No, this won't work. But do yourself a favour and get one of the Xmos USB boards offered in this thread:XMOS-based Asynchronous USB to I2S interface.
It costs a little more than 100€ and someone called it the audio bargain of the decade, and I share this opinion. You can go via I2s data into the subbu dac, avoiding the SPDIF conversion.
This should be one very good source from your Linux distro, I sold my cd players long ago since I play with Linux/Usb/dac.
And no Dac in this world will drive your speakers directly, you will need a preamp and poweramp or integrated amplifier for that, somehow you need to control volune.

I guess yours got lost ?! Please ask Subbu when they were sent. I got mine a quite long time ago.

Aha, the PSU PCB is being made and will be delivered within some weeks. We have found out that starting a PSU group buy while the DAC group buy was already started was not the wisest thing to do. I don't have the final power supply PCB myself too

You will be enjoying the Subbu V2.6 DAC around Christmas and the V3 around New Year
