Default Sui Katase FN1242A DAC

Very nice DIR9001/FN1242A ("Fluency") DAC from Japan. This particular DAC chip really is something else as it is quite unique from a technical point of view and it was made by Niigata Seimitsu who normally produce medical electronics.... Luxman used it in various flagship devices. I built it up with Black Gate caps both STD and NX-HiQ. I tested it and encased it but never used it. Since I needed the casing I dismantled it. I can include 230V transformers as shown on picture.

* Apparently the DAC PCB can be modified to DSD but I have spent enough time with Google translate The chip is relatively unknown outside of Japan and it was not intended to be sold to private persons but somehow a batch ended up in Akihabara (秋葉原) in Tokyo. This is why almost all FN1242A designs come from the land of the rising sun.

Bump. Price is 100 Euro ex shipping. Considering the quantity of BG caps this seems a good price to me. Output buffer is a metal can LM49720. Low noise symmetrical PSU and LT3080 PSU are of course included.

Hi Jean Paul
What a great pity, just wanted to contact you and buy the DAC, but forgot to scroll down first.
BTW: Did you get my pm concerning the LM4780TA. Although the ebay name of the seller indicates that he is from china, it is a decent German seller. I get my chips tomorrow.
Kind Regards
Phil

Hi Phil, yes I got the message. The board was sold anyway so I will have to stay happy with my current setup
