I'll be using balanced XLR.
Connect the two output leads of the wall wart to the input of the Placid. Done.

Thanks, and how about the other grounds?
I'll be using transformers on the output...
The placid has one ground at the output, the BII's got some as well?
Should I route everything to a common chassie ground, wire it all in series or what?

I use 0.6mm solid core bell wire. Works great. I use it for all internal wiring apart from mains. Maybe if I got unwanted noise I'd think about shielding, but I've never had a problem.

Guys, if I am getting this right, by ordering only from TPA site - the best results are achieved by putting together Dual Mono DAC + Ivy + (how many bi and single power boards donno..) + (2 transformers), correct?

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
Just use some 24awg twisted wire pair, e.g. from striped CAT5 utp cable...

The CAT5 cable works fine also here. I'm interested in you guys opinions on some nice kind of wire-to-board connector as I find the terminal blocks supplied with the kit somewhat "heavy" for these fine digital signals.
Cheers,
Nic

Hi Nic

I use these-

Rapid Electronics - Cables & Connectors

Seem fine to me, though many who insist on paying huge sums for audiophile connections will doubtless disagree
