Thanks.

No, I do not have equipment to do CNC milling and engraving by myself.
The Alu-Profiles are from km-housings. Milling and engraving of the panels was done by Schaeffer-Apparatebau (Frontpanelexpress in US)

1542 - 2 questions about your very nice case.

Where did you get the front panel knobs from? I'm finding it near impossible to find what I'm looking for.

And do you have any pictures of how you mounted the display? I'd like to do something similar but am unsure of the mechanics of fixing it to the front panel.

Thanks a lot.

I get the panel knobs form a ebay seller named hongkongsuperseller (Item# 120495984706)

For now there is no display assembled. I am still waiting for the controller / display announced by twistedpearaudio. What you see at the pictures is a piece of plexiglas with no display behind.

Hi folks,
here are some pics of my almost 4 years old DIY DAC with PCM1796 and its measurements with AudioPrecision SYS-2. It uses ADAV803 as SRC and has a link input for my DSP Equalizer (also DIY, but not on my homepage yet :-(

My Scott Nixon USBDKII, based on the TDA1543.

Simple but very good sounding unregulated power supply, integrated volume control (Alps 20k), Sedlbauer toroid transformer 30VA, Wima output caps and the very important Sanyo Oscon for TDA1543 decoupling ;-)

I really like the sound of this dac! It's dynamic and fast, lively, coherent and natural sounding with a remarkably controlled and tight bottom end. Very open and forward, but without being excessive in any area.
But I tested MANY different power supply designs and different output coupling caps before I threw all this into the case...
