i can tell you that everyone i know pretty much tat has one, also has the buffalo ii and myself and those i have talked with about it have designated the ackodac as the main rig to focus efforts on.

Default Firewire

I'm waiting for my DAC now .
Since I'm not an electronic expert, does someone have suggestions to fit a firewire (IEE1394) on?
Thanks

Just want to say I know there are "firewire-usb" adaptors (and then to I2S input onboard) but is there a different way?

no, not possible and other than adapters will not ever be possible, firewire is dead in the water and will be phased out now that thunderbolt is available. do you have an old computer or something? i cant think of many computers that have firewire and not usb, any solution would end up costing as much as buying a used mac mini

I just found your forum. Is it still possible to order units, and if so, how much would the total package cost? I want to use a DCX2496 to tri-amp a set of horns. I assume I would need three units.
Thanks in advance for your help

I plan to build a 192/24 dac driven by async I2S usb interface soon. It seems as the es9012 ic is one of the best out there. As I want to use a tube I/V I fancily build I'm wondering what's the I/V resistor value range that the 9012 likes to see. Now I use 39R with the vintage Philips TDA1540 and TDA1541.

the 9012 does not like to see any iv resistor, the sabre requires almost zero impedance at its output to perform its best, passive iv with a resistor will shave about 30db off the dynamic range

passive is possible with a suitable transformer with outstanding results, but a good transformer is not readily available and can be a very costly solution.
