Ultra High Performance DAC S/PDIF in 4Vrms Balanced Out
I have designed a DAC which is based on the PCM1794A and WM8804 chip.
The sound and performance are absolutely stellar.
SNR A-Weighted: 120dB
Frequency Response: DC - 30khz (-.5dB at 30kHz)
Noise Floor: -140dB
Power Input: 80-264VAC or 115-370VDC
Audio Input: S/PDIF coax or S/PDIF Optical (jumper selectable)
Audio Input: 24 or 16bit -- 44.1khz, 48khz, 96khz, 192khz (auto-detect)
Stereo Output: Balanced 4Vrms for left and right channels
Volume Control: 0dB to -25dB (Alps Blue Velvet)
I am trying to guage interest to see if anybody here would be willing to do a group buy. The cost per board is going to be in the range of $300 to $400. This is very cheap considering that the performance easily beats $2000 pieces of equipment. I would need to make a minimum of 25 pieces to make this feasible.
The design uses only the highest quality components film capacitors, 0.1% resistors, etc.
I have a working prototype on which I measured the performance numbers below.
Here are the pictures of the prototype and measurements.
Noice Floor (0 dBrA = 4Vrms)
1kHz Sine Wave at 0 dBrA (0 dBra = 4Vrms)
Frequency Response and THD+N
Since this graph was taken the frequency response has been adjusted out to 30kHz with no impact on THD+N or SNR.
