As I have build one Subbu DAC 2.6 and is a very good DAC , I have enlisted again with 1 piece of SE DAC.
To all that are in doubt : join and build this DAC as it will beat a lot ( if not the majority ) of DAC in the 1000....2000 euro price class that are on sale right now on Audiophiles magazines.
Do not believe me : just buy , build and listen to this sparkling GEM !

Danzig is 100% right, without looking at the price, this dac beats my other 2 Saber more expensive dac. You can even just build the dac part without the 8804 and connects to other interface module via I2S. Simple enough!

Hi everyone,
sorry for the following questions, they may appear noob:
- i have a squeezebox touch and would like to give it a DAC, the best possible for less than 100€, given this only the DIY world can bring me a solution.
I read some people above saying that this DAC is equivalent to 1000-2000€ commercial DACs, is it really the case.
- i do not know/understand the differences between SE & Balanced, what should i have to select?
- S/PDIF = COAXIAL right? because the SB Touch can output the signal via RCA, COAXIAL, TOSHLINK or even USB
- i'm also looking at a good linear PSU for the Touch, would this one be compatible? i saw that this PSU provides 5V250mA but the Touch needs 5V1A, will this work?

thank you in advance for your feedbacks and sorry again for my questions

No that is not the case. It sounds better than some 1000-2000 Euro DACs.

No.

BTW SPDIF = coaxial

SE = your amplifier must have the single ended input provided by RCA input line socket
BAL = your amplifier must have differential line input with XLR connectors , hence the balanced input require .
So it is up to you what you must use : just look at your power amplifier .
