I actually think that DAC is some of my best work, and I am seriously thinking of bringing it back, but slightly revised.

The thing that satisfies me the most is that you are enjoying it.

I haven't felt a serious need to upgrade from 32S. Upgraditis strikes every now and then (I admit I've added the Buffalo III in the cart a couple of times ) but other projects keep me busy.
Plus I must say it stood it's ground pretty well in head-to-head shootouts with the newer Buffalos.

I like your idea Russ.
You could have a 32S Rev2.0 as an alternative in your lineup.

Hi Scanspeakman, Thank You for the reply !!!
- What are the other boards that are in your chassis???
I am looking also for some kind of Pre -regulation after the Transformers , before the PSU boards - like CRC or something ... would that help clean up the power a little more? Anyone have some advice? Thank You , Kind Regards, dean

Thanks Brian !!! - I guess that I have seen other people that have done more power supply work and say that your Great Buffalo Dac really responds to improved PSUs !..... and I wanted to do something more! But I don't have the bucks right now to buy a better PSU like shunts from you ........ but I could afford a few caps and other parts to mod the psu , So I was looking for any Ideas that others had tried , that had helped ... diy..... it's a disease : ) Kind Regards, dean

I,m considering using the balanced to single ended I-V stage with uf III shown in figure 2 of the following link.http://www.esstech.com/PDF/Applicati...PCB_Layout.pdf

I,m curious as to where the line labeled offset can be derived from?

You need to create it. Research voltage divider.
