Nos dacs do not use steep filtering to remove the 'steps' in the analogue output waveform. One of the effects of this is to roll of the high frequency output a little. Another effect is that they can make engineers grind their teeth I have built a number of my own 1543 portable dacs, they sound nice, but not quite 'right' too my ears. How good they sound depends on the designers circuit implementation, not all nos dacs are equal. I built mine point to point and...
I am guessing Croatian, as many of the members seem to be from there.
