Default >> WTB: TDA1541A-S2 Taiwan made >>

Good afternoon Gentlemen,

I'm looking for two (or one) pcs original TDA1541A-S2 Taiwan made (1997) DAC ICs, because of my Parallel NOS DAC project.

If anybody don't want to begin or finish his lovely TDA1541A DAC project, or simple has some surplus chips in the top drawer, please write me to: zeroalbedo@freemail.hu

Our diyAudio site probably is my last hope, so if you might, please help me.

The attached below picture from http://www.dutchaudioclassics.nl/philips_tda1541-s2/ is for demonstration purpose only.

Thx in advance!

I have a reflection from an ebay seller:

"Hi I have sold two of my TDA1541A S2 chips cause I have found better sounding these are speciall selection R1 chips price for two is ...$ there is an option if you do not like chips to return them to me I will make a full refund. I have 100% possitive feedback on ebay check my store http://stores.ebay.com/..."

I think that, the better technical parameters may not automatically give a guarantee for sound superiority. But should I beleive that this so called "special selection R1" sounds better than S2? Why Philips or Marantz (CD-7) engineers were not and Audiophiles here are not clear with this secret? Has anibody ever compared the sound of S2 vs R1?

Cheers

TDA1541A/R1s are rejected TDA1541As...
All the thing of S1/S2/R1/... is overrated imho. 1541 are as good as their surrounding circuitry, so i'd better invest into better clocking and output stage, carefully implemented.

Hy my friends,

I'm still hunting for "S2s".

This photo is from underneath of a "Marantz CD-7s cover".

Please check your electronic parts storage unit, maybe there is a humble TDA1541A-S2 blinking towards us.

elektroj, you are probably right. It is a good idea to tell that I am ready to pay 150 or 200 $ for each S2. 300 or 400 $ per pair. Plus shipping price of course.

But please, on friendly way not for a fake ones .
