The postal system works in mysterious ways. I convinced a friend that he wants to buy this DAC, in the RCA-case version last week. He ordered on .. Thursday or Friday, I can't remember and he sent me a picture of it yesterday. My pre-order on the other hand, was just received in my post office

Anyway, nice work swalter!

It was around 15khz range. I've done tests and I can't really hear anything over 18khz, especially my left ear.

This was on a netbook, acer aspire one d250 running windows xp. USB port on the Left hand side, opposite of the power adapter.

I noticed the same thing on two seperate PC's.

Hi All, first of all thanks for the kind words. It's my pleasure to serve this community the best way possible and supply you with more stuff as time passes I unfortunately could not, due to heavy work load in my daytime job (actually night time as well during the last 3 weeks), reply to the forum as often as I wanted. At least I managed to ship all orders placed in a timely manner.

Yes, postal services are strange creatures, one shipment arrives within 2 days, same destination shipped to a week later takes 3 weeks to arrive... no idea why though...
I am currently setting up a new shopping cart for the store as the tax issue and not being able to display shipping prices for letter post really bugs me. On top it causes double the work sending refunds or billing items through paypal. This is one of the main reasons the parts section is still abandoned. I hope I will get the new cart running within the next two weeks and will be able to migrate the user database.
I also just got a deal with DHL Express, so in case you need items shipped quickly it will be possible once the new storefront is up. I just do not want to put any more effort into the old system. Prices are in a moderate bracket, the more this option will be used the lower the prices will get (reviewed every 3 month and adapted on amount of shipments made).

In regards to the high pitched noise, I tested all ODACs before shipping on a Win7 and a WinXP PC and none made any squeeling noise whatsoever.
The last batch though made no noise at all and went back to the manufacturer for re-work. Therefore re-stocking will take approximately 2 more weeks.

Stefan

The sound was definately there, I do tend to be sensitive to high frequency noise though. Sounded like a bit like a camera flash charging and was gone a couple of seconds later.

The ODAC works fine regardless.

Hello Head 'n' HiFi - Walter. I tried to look up postal fees on your website but didn't find it. Can you tell me what the costs for shipping to the Netherlands is?

Register at the website. Put what you want to buy in your shopping cart. Continue to check out and go on a bit and then you'll find shipping costs and alternatives.


I just ordered and O2 diy kit and an ODAC with O2 back panel. I chose the german DHL shipping so I guess I wont have to pay any taxes or duties since it's shipping from Germany? Will tell my friend tomorrow to order the same stuff as I did and I'll build it for him
Can't wait to compare the O2 + ODAC to my Asus Xonar STX!

sorry for the wait, shipping cost to The Netherlands starts at 10 CHF (from Germany - shipping once per week from there...), depending on what you order it might be slightly more as it is weight depended.

...and as per post above, the assumption regarding VAT is correct

Got my package today. Very well packed including all parts in good shape (I've had broken parts before when buying other electronics). I didn't have to pay any extra duties or taxes, very good! I've just pretty much finished assembling the O2 (pictures here ?music).

How important is it to clean the back of the board to remove flux residues?
