Hi Russ, I plan to build Buffalo III DAC for my hifi system. I use 02 channel and coaxial input only. Could you recommend which kit and accessory I need to order? Kit is completed one (I just have to do wiring) or there are some parts I need to solder in?

Can you ship directly to Vietnam?

Thank you.

A full description of parts is given in the integration guide. You'll have to solder quite some parts, basicly all through-hole parts need to be soldered.

Hi Bitinhvi,
You will need a powersupply for the B3 as well. F.i. Placid HD or LCDPS.
And one 15V + one 9V transformer.
Enjoy the assembling and, of course, the listening afterwards!

Hi Bitinhvi,

Your choice is correct for 1,2,3,4.
For 5, (the Buff3) you can NOT use the Placid HD BP, only the Placid HD!
A good alternative is the LCDPS. It gives you even two seperate regulators.
Or you have to wait for the Placid HD,
Cheers.

I thought Placid HD BP was build with 2 Placids HD, only the negative side have diferent transistors and regulators. In that case its possible to change the negative side to make it a positive dual power supply with a 15 VAC 9V secundaries transformer to deliver 2 x 5.25V. My guess
Regards

I ordered it with same thinking. I plan to use half of it (positive side) to feed B3.

Am I wrong? Please advise.
