I'm very interested in your board if it will sound better than the board I have now. I'm using three separate power supplies from Pear Audio for voltage in.

NOS and especially the 1865 dac really sounds more musical than anything I've heard which is why I'm very interested if you perfected a board past what Audio Note has done.
I got chance to compare the Audio Note Dac 2.1 with the DAC END and I really preferred the DAC END, both on sound and price aspects.

The DAC END has smoother sound and better controlled bass. When you go maxxed with the DAC END, the result is even better.

Never got anything. Maybe we should PM.

I want to change the resistors and order some naked ones. Is your recommendation then to go down to 80 Ohm? Or 100 Ohms?

Interesting. My two complaints are bass can get uncontrolled and highs are extended or natural sounding.
