Default Zen DAC !?!

Mr. Pass, don't you plan to create a DAC in ZEN philosophy-art style?
That would be great and so would be complete the PassDiy audio series!!!
I love PassDiy designs from Xovers and phono preamps to poweramps! Only a good DAC is missing.....

agreed, but how about the DIY active cross-over project.... and the DIY active attenuator?

My personal prefference would be the active-attenuator firt, then the active cross-over, then DAC..... but that's just me..

I think the Pass crossover project was run over by the MOX active crossover. I seem to recall Nelson saying that he was dropping his crossover from the queue. Bummer.

A zen dac? Don't be suprised if NP comes back with an R/2R ladder... I've never seen a Pass digital electronics project so I'm not sure you'll ever get this request fufilled properly.

you can find out why there won't be a crossover project by doing
a little research in the DIY update thread.

Imagine!
Non oversampling, Class A-SE converter with so much outpower and impedance that you could connect directly to the Zen amp......
and/or built in active xover, etc......

Exactly. Still, It's to bad that we may never get Nelson's keen description of an active crossover. He has a talent for explaining the technical to some of us non-techies. You might have to live on the XVR1 documentation.

The same thing might apply with regards to a DAC. Nelson has previously expressed a lack of interest in a commercial DAC (see his Ferengi quote), and therefore may not have interest in a diy DAC.

The I/V converter in the PL D1 is my Zen contribution to DACs.
I doubt there will be another in that category.
