Be careful! I cut the standoffs first, to get the regs out of the way. Then wick away as much solder as possible. Then one can remove the remaining posts one at a time-heating the post will also release it from the plastic (as the plastic softens), or one can gently pry the plastic up from the board, and cut the stand offs, and then remove one at a time. The plastic spacer will move on the posts with the application of a little heat.
Just do not use too much force, which could damage to board, work slowly and patiently.

If I had, I wouldn't make the proposal. And I don't think the average DIY'er has.

I understand, I am just saying that is the easiest and safest way to do it.

I know. It just a matter of a few mils, then the wick would be so much efficient.

Just trying to suggest the "next-to-safest" to be event more safe. It's painstaking to see your via pulled out with the component leg.

There is more simple solution. When you solder to dac board pin headers just solder to tridents female headers as well.

I was just going to say that.

If you fancy changing things up - headers are always the best choice.

I installed the new Tridents two weeks ago on my BII and there is improvement in all areas. Most noticable is more analogue, less digital warm sound and stronger more precise DEEP bass, more details from background, better 3d stereo imaging, and, and and ...
