WTD - DSC1 "Dac", board or completed

Hi Mark. If you're up to the challenge, the obvious starting point would be to get some PCBs fabricated from Pavel's Gerber files; his projects are documented in the Signalyst DSC1 thread.

Here's Pavel's site

https://puredsd.ru/

more info here

If you want something with the hard work done maybe look at the Star DAC kit

STAR Pure DSD DAC-Signalyst New

or, for a smaller budget, maybe one of these ebay boards (not sure how well they function though - the 'DAC' part of it follows the DSC schematic but how effective the mechanical relay is?)

Mshow Differential DSC1 DAC DSD512 WITHOUT transform Can work w/ Amanero or XMOS | eBay

Mshow Differential DSC1 DAC decoder DSD Assembled Compatible w/ Amanero or XU208 | eBay

BTW, I have a DSC2 built and running (using one of Pavel's boards (V2.5.2)).

Hi Ray

I am being lazy - don't have time to scratch built right now. Hoping to shortcut the process. Shameful, I know.

I've followed the developments and your project, that's one of the things that got me thinking again of doing something like this. I have a working project based on the original Signalyst designation, have tried a differential version and am thinking of building another board (based on whichever board I can get hold of tbh) just for experimentation.

With the introduction of the EC modulators in HQPlayer my interest in dsd decoding has been great refined.

Good to speak again,

Regards
Mark
