    I read the white paper after I bought it...some outside of the DAC box thinking went into it.

    Another thing is some DAC chips can be configured as voltage or current output. Twisted Pear claims the ESS Sabre32 as voltage output DAC is ordinary, but as current output it is stellar. TP really went after powering the DAC chip to make it better (four shunting modules on it). Another thing is I spent quite a lot to get another 10-15% in sonics. A single build does get you most of the way there.

    If you check out the digital section at diyAudio, you'll see most folks going the USB/I2S route with most DAC builds regardless of chip type. I2S separates data from clock where with SPDIF clock is embedded with data. Some folks are even re-clocking the I2S signal at the DAC end for even less jitter.

    Do you mean the ES9018 chip or som other ESS chip?

    And I'm a bit limited by my source!

    The 9018 is an improved version of the 9008 chip; the white paper still applies.

    Merry Christmas, gentlemen. (I can call you that one night a year, perhaps?) The children are snug in their wee little beds.

    Hope you're getting double-time, Rich.

    Anyone worked with Audio Consultants out of the Chicago area? Magnepan has a bass panel now and they have a try it for free program but you go through your local dealer to get them. Local dealer gets your credit card and Magnepan ships the panel to your home. If this happens I'll let you guys know so we can have a listen.

    Just wondering...
