Default How can I implement the D1-Stage with an Ultra-Analog-DAC (parasound 2000)?

I thought it should be promising to combine one of the best DAC (Ultraanlog DACD20400A) with Nelson's Outputstage. Well, only two issues:

1. Does anyone know how much current this DAC produces ? Neslon's D1 is made for 2mA of the PCM63.

2. How should it be connected ? Obviously OUTR is the signal, but why is AL0 /AL1 both grounded ? I would assume that I connect the D1 directly to OUTR, right (see attachment)?

Best Regards
Frank

Default no current source

Hi Frank,
the Ultra Analog DAC has a buffered lo impedance voltage source output

Guten Rutsch!!!

In that case, the D1 stage is not appropriate, as it
expects to see a current source.

OK, in that case I will forget the Ultra-analog-DAC and combine the D1-Stage with my TDA1547 (with 1mA output). I know that this has been discussed before iwth changing the current through the 610 from 10mA down to 1mA, but I have not understood if ths has finally worked out or if Nelson sees this as a good approach to change the D1-stage (with only 1mA of current through it, obviously bandwith etc of the stage will change).

By the way: HAs anyone tried to convert the D1-Stage into a tubestage ?

You will get less distortion with the higher current figure.

As to using a tube, there is nothing to stop you.

well you could try to make the D1 output stage with tubes.
Itīs I think a good idea but I am not so good with tubes.
There are even tubes you could use at low voltages.

Default D1 for TDA1547

Hi Blitz,

you asked my before in the other tread about this issue. I did not answer because my project was postponed...

But right now I start to test the modified D1 stage with the TDA1547 just sourcing 0,1mA. Details will follow here.

I finally biased the circuit not at 1mA but at 8mA using a double JFET 2SK389. CCS like in the Aleph P1.7 everywhere. My listening tests just start...

Regards

Klaus

More to follow but for the curious guys already some pics... (sorry in another forum in German language) http://www.audiomap.de/forum/index.p...id=15097&page=

thatīs funny I was just looking at that before I read it here.

what did you use as output caps where Pass uses 220uF?
