Hi debianx,

Looks like you removed also the final analog filter, native transformer bandwidth does the job ?

Yes, I understand from your usual business one don’t release beta’s unless special called for. But as it seems on this and a couple other forums some member of the diy community voice a shorter interest span than the usual commercial customers. Not to mention several misunderstandings floating the net regarding faults this DAC might have.
I prefer to release the next firmware with fixes for all current issues, otherwise there will be too many "I have release x.x how do I....".

And it seems like people here are not as comfortable with serial upgrades as the users of our small computer boards, so lets shoot for just one upgrade.

I just updated the "user manual" with a guide to update the firmware. https://hifiduino.wordpress.com/2015...c-users-guide/

Should be easy now. Using a PC serial port, the interface is rock solid. I am using "Tera Term" which has xmodem transfer.

Messing around with volume settings via the umanager.
Is it necessary to powercycle the dam1021 everytime a new setting is placed?

You don't need to go to uManager to change the volume. Outside of uManager, you just type (for example) V-20 and enter and it will change the volume.

Quick question. What does the blinking and solid green led on the DAM1012 indicate? What is changing when it goes from blinking to solid? My dac isn't working yet hence the question.

I decided to remove the op-amps from the board since I knew at that point I will never be using them ever again. Before I did that I used my Seek Thermal camera and noticed they got pretty warm even after I cut the signal traces for them, meaning they do draw a good amount of power for doing absolutely nothing. Its best to just remove them if you have zero intentions on using them. The 5V regulators near the RS232 serial chip don't even get warm anymore either after doing so.
Interesting, assuming to remove op-amps from cheap Chinese brand DAC to use the raw outputs would bring it to the same quality level.
It's a shame that this DAC failed on analog section as usually happens to digital guys.

Any green ligth, blinking or not indicates power present. Blinking indicates hunting for valid input signal, steady is when one is found.
