If you are in the UK and you aren't doing a load of SMD work, I suggest you get this from Rapid: SMD rework jelly and solder pack
The flux will last ages and the solder is 62% tin, 2% silver, 36% lead.

Unless you have masochistic tendencies, dont use lead free solder, you wont go far wrong with 80/20 or 63/37 solder 26SWG.

I also suggest getting a temperature controlled iron of about 50W - The one you have is a bit low powered at 25W (lower power means that the iron struggles to maintain tip temperature, so requires more time to do the job). Take a look at this from Maplin: 48W LCD Display Solder Station : Temperature Controlled Irons & Solder Stations : Maplin Electronics

Just a quick comment. I notice that Uriah recommends not to use silver loaded solder for the lighter note, in particular for the LED optocoupler a the cadmium sulphide LDR is easily damaged by excess heat. I'm still using good old (very old!!) Ersin multicore, essential to clean excess flux from completed joints after though. There are still available lead/tin solders, such as Autosol from Rapid, good for most purposes.
Ian.

I am wondering how true balanced output (i.e. +ve part out of one channel and -ve signal out of the other) is obtained here. From limited information ES9023 has no +ve and -ve outputs (only SE L&R output) so using two ES9023s only double the maximum output current. Unless the I2S is divided into +ve and -ve stream before entering ES9023.

...for one thing, v3 group buy is sttill open, so that's a trivial benefit for those like me, who saw this project "a bit late"...

And with some improvements that are hinted at the beginning of this thread.

isn't it obvious... its at LEAST .4 better.. .

I was out of the loop during the 2.6 group buy so this is my chance to get in on the fun.. Until there is a final completed product to compare to 2.6, it's anyone's guess how much better it will be (if it would even be noticeable by TinEars like me...) I'll at least be able to compare it to my existing DAC's

None if you are happy with 2.6.
