Great, can't wait. Al, if I could be of any help, please let me know. I'm retired and plenty of time on my hands, though I'm a software engineer, so when it comes to hardware I freeze...;-)

Default Quick Update

Hi Everybody,

I've started populating the new DAC and I/V amplifier board to make sure everything works. The new changes are minor but I want to be 100% sure that everything works before going into full production. The PCM/DSD and S/PDIF input boards, OLED control board, and power supplies will be here next week.

The plan over the next two to three weeks is to complete another DAC build including all the new boards. I thought about skipping this step since I've done so much testing already but experience tells me the added time and expense will be well worth it and give me peace of mind.

I don't anticipate this will push back my previous schedule too much. I still plan on being ready to take orders in December, and go into full production sometime in January.

Best regards,

Al

Hi cloudalmasai,

I'll try my best for early January but most likely it will be mid to late January.

You're right for four channels you'll need one DAC and two Amp boards. So you'll have two DACs in parallel per channel.

Thanks for the interest.

Best regards,

Al

Hi Alex!
My Fav DAC chip and Fav open-development baord. Nothing could be better.
I just got a Cambridge Dacmagic for my Stero setup ( NAD 320BEE/KEF Q300), which could not win over my makeshift Audioengine D1 - the limitation of 16bit in USB mode on CA Dacmagic sucks.

So here is what I need:
1. The 2.1 Stereo output (Yes, a nicely done sub out is great)
2. No Amp stage. Only balanced RCA.
3. Take advantage of of input sectors:
a. 3x S/PDIF
b. 3x Coaxial
c. 2x Asynch USB.

Do let me know the price of the kit/PCB of for my required setup.

Eagerly waiting for your announcement of the board.

Hi Kuribo,

Thanks for the continued interest. I've been working on lowering cost as much as I can. Pricing will be similar to lower than other ES9018 kits currently available. I'll announce the numbers early next month after I'm done building and testing all the new boards. Stay tuned for pics of the new build. December will be a very busy month. Thanks again.

Best regards,

Al

Hi AAK, I'm very interested in the I/V boards for an active 6 channels project. I already own a Buffalo III DAC and I wondered if I could easily connect the I/V boards to the existing DAC headers (which can be seen here : The Buffalo III Digital-to-Analog Converter).

Thanks!
