Don't be surprised if you get emails about them in 2030.

Somewhere in between is the market price..as Jean Paul mentioned the chip alone is more than most DIY dac projects...

I bid on one of the 2 just listed...let see where this will take us.. ;o)

I had a S2 but after comparing it to S1 I prefer the sound of S1 due mainly to the while range of music genre that I listen too. S2 too refine for my taste, a friend beg me to sell it to him so I did & cheap too 100 bucks. Lol

The chip alone is not worth that money IMO but I even meant ready made DACs. While being very good it is still a 40 year old 16 bit DAC chip in 24 bit or even DSD times, one could also try to find currently produced chips and try to get the best out of them. It is all relative. The "fear of missing out", emotions and nostalgia when things get rare are very good for the sellers. Implementation is also more difficult then usual with several PSU's etc. so the likes of AYA and Zanden get the most out of it. As often every device with a TDA1541A profits from the hype.

Don't get me wrong, I like it a lot but moved on as otherwise I keep hanging in the past.

As we all know, these things are relative and subjective, some people pay for Wilson Audio speakers, some people make CD players using Boom Box mechs and dacs and many hundreds of hours of labour. I make my own cables, both interconnect and speaker using silver, in reality not expensive really, with a VFet or tube amp they are great. Others on their systems some don't like them. There are some eye watering prices out there for audio, some work, others don't. All I'm doing is reducing my collection of about 25 CD players, Mostly TDA1541 based.

True but things that costed a few Euro in their time selling for 650 Euro is out of control. One could ask oneself if it is really worth it. What I see is the grey brigade hanging on to CD and TDA. There really is more out there to explore. It simply can not be that something out of the past is the best forever, although I miss my first Alfa Romeo a lot
