Yeah, it ended up working in the end but I had to stop for a while due to school and by the time I could get back into it, I saw the DAM1121 coming out and decided to base my project around that instead.
It seems like a ton of trouble to go that far to get PCM1704s so I've decided to cancel the order yes I am weak
I had a look at analoguemetric already and they sell K-marked chips so I'm not sure exactly how trustworthy they are.
I'm seriously considering modding a Philips CD753 or Marantz CD5000 to be a DAC now, but I know that's going to be a challenge and a half for someone of my calibre...
Wonder if this would be legit: http://component.iiic.cc/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1852765
I'm currently waiting on the DAM1121 from Soekris to come out tbh but he's having difficulties so best thing is patience
Hmm, it might be a better idea to get the AD1862 kit from them instead. I doubt I'll notice any significant difference in the sound if I do so. Another project I've thought about is modifying an old CDP to be a DAC but that's not something I should go into too much detail here!
I happen to already have a DiYinHK 0.8uV 12V bipolar supply board and two DiYinHK 3.3V/5V 0.8uV twin supply boards so I'm just gonna use those for a start. Not sure which transformers to use though; the selectronic R-cores seem pretty attractive though. Also, I got my chips from this eBay seller.
