What about the digital bypass mod done by mister lampizator?

ad1865

"The digital input RCA is installed with a complete bypass of digital input transformer as well as the input buffer chip. I went directly by silver wire - from RCA hot to CS pin 9 (Rxp) , and from cold RCA to CS8414 pin 10 (Rxn)"

"The digital bypass. It is so audible - I can tell you - it is a real thick blanket being removed."

I think there are some great experiments to be performed.

I am away from my house and projects for about 3 weeks.

My plan is to remove the fiter from DAC board and put it on a separate perf board so that I can easily try other IV set-ups.

These will include Oliver's board
Tube-I-zator Professional PCB
This is the Lampizator's set-up in which I will try the 6N2p

I will also try raindrop hui's (AD1865 ref above) tube output (miniature Raytheons)

I also have Welborne's Borbely hybrid which is set-up as a differential output. Depending what I hear with the original board and the two others I may mod it for the AD1865. It uses the 6G8M at 24V. I have also used the 6H6P at 24V in the same board but set up as line stage. Quite interesting.

I will be about 3 weeks behind all of you but will report when I am back to my home.

Thanks to all for their comments.

Best

Bob

I desperately need a CS8414 on DIP. I bought one from ebay, being told it was soldered, which it wasn't to the converter board.
I attempted to solder it myself, but wrecked the tracks as i have no patience.
Can anyone recommend me a place, or even solder another up for me?

Thanks

Yes it's hard to solder. I've got this one from ebay and asked to solder and test for me. They done it, mounted and works.

Ask to solder and test it for you.

Thanks, it was those guys who said they'd solder it for me....


Never mind. Will the CS8412 work inplace?
I've contacted them, asking again for a soldered and tested one...

I believe it works but the CS8414 is an improvement of the 8412. Quanghao's friend has one mounted on his pcb
