Why are you not using surface mount decoupling caps? You would save some board room, and the lower inductance of the leads is better for decoupling. They may not look as pretty as the Wima caps, though. I'll grant you that.

Mostly because in most cases I need the vias anyway. Since the power comes up from the bottom side.

Default update

Hi All,

I have the PCB gerbers ready for the order, but the fab shop I use will not be ready to process them until next Monday (holiday). I actually have five PCB designs all going out at the same time, so at least this give me a little double check time.

I would say 2-3 weeks at the soonest based on my last order.

MashBill, as a brewer I can truly appreciate your user ID.

Cheers!
Russ

Good news!

So, when can we order Twisted Brew to go with our Twisted Pear gear?

Sorry for going off-topic, but I thought I'd mention the following.

If anyone is interested I have about 8-pcs of WM8740 left. I had to buy 10-pcs in a sample order two months ago and used two for evaluation. I finally settled on another DAC, but the WM8740 sure is a capable one. I'd be willing to sell these at $15 a piece (including shipping) and of course I'd be happy to ship internationally. PM me for details.

Any idea on pricing for these kits?

Will there be an option to order them with the DAC and reciever chips mounted?

The price is not finalized yet but it should be ~ $100.

The beta PCBs are on their way to me right now. As soon as the DAC is tested we will order more parts.

Yes we will give the option of the DAC and receiver parts pre-mounted.

Cheers!
Russ

Russ/Brian,

Have you had the chance to give your new DAC a trial yet ?
