Default CS4396 DAC With Transformer Balanced Out

CS4396 Based DAC that had the output OPAMPS removed and Sescom M-14 Transformers installed for balanced out. I built this years ago - used it for quite some time until I started using my Wolfson based DAC...

To keep everything intact, I encased all of the delicate circuitry in hot glue...works great.

More info on DAC

Experience with this DIY DAC ?

$75 + ship or pickup in West Sub of Chicago?

It sounds full. Don't know how best to describe...I sightly prefer the Wolfson, but the Wolfson is not balanced out...
