Is it a realistic goal to try to combine a buffalo 2 DAC with a myref rev C in the same box? Any issues with interference or incompatibitlity issues, what should I keep in mind?

Sure, it should work fine so long as you route wires appropriately and have enough space.

Russ,

Thanks for the quick response. If I run signal to the DAC via USB What additional parts "kits" would I need to buy from Twisted pear in order to set this up? (other than the DAC and the USB receiever?). I'm sure this is answered but I seem to get a sea of information when I seach for this info.

Modules you would need:

- Buf II
- Legato or IVY-III (your choice)
- Placid BP
- Placid
- 9V transformer for Placid
- 12V or 15V(either is fine) transformer for Placid BP
- USB module

Russ

that raises me some doubts ... so do I need a placid for the BII AND a placid BP for the legato or I can supply the BII and the legato with just on placid BP?

You need both because the Buf II needs 5.5V and the Legato +/-12 to 15V

The AVCC power supply module is a shunt regulator that uses an opamp.

Some thoughts about internal cabling both digital (S/PDIF) and analog output from the IVY, i am willing to spend some $ in the quest for the perfectly naturally balanced cable, am now running Silk Mk2 interconnects and Furutech rca and xlr .
I have partly decided to run twisted pair of the Silk mk2 at the output both balanced and se,
as for digital input i have ordered a Belden 1694A bnc/bnc and will modify my cd player into bnc.
The question that remains is:
what should i choose as internal wiring from the bnc to the buffalo S/PDIF input, the distance is max 2 in,

should i go for

-1694a shielded? might add some mecanical stress since the 1694 is quite stiff
-1694a stripped and center lead used both for + and -
-Silk mk2?
-other?
-other candidates as for the analogue cabling?


-Thanx

Pardon a n0ob question...
I have a BII + Placid kit and I'm about to start the build. I'm considering using a 7.5VAC Wall wart. How should I connect the grounds? I assume neither of the two leads from the wall wart are connected to ground?
I'll be using balanced XLR.
