I think you have me confused with another thread or you memory is failing you!
I don't know what you are talking about and I have not menchined bass in any comment as of yet except the comment i made above.I said earlier that i prefer the dac over the eastsound.I have nothing to gain by misleading.I just like the sound of the dac---i have not menchined that i use the headphone section at all.I assume it is good,being only 2 channel I also stated that i only listen to tubes-your sound may very-some questions would be--what speakers are you using,cables,frontend etc.I have the dac sitting on top of a $800 Symposium platter that a Manufacturer friend gave me.Just by using the platter,cones,lead,sand can change your sound.I have also layered copper foil and 3m material on the inside of the dac:So i am confused: on your comment.It's all ok---


I have forgotten to ad that the rear is only a 2 prong power.My previous pictures showed you that.Instead of adding a 3 prong iec i am using an adapter called the ICE.It allows me to use any powercord.

The innards look interesting... There sure are a lot of capacitors

^ Holy cow! That thing looks like it should cost over $200 in parts cost alone. Where are you getting quoted prices on that phobus? Is there a dealer that will ship to the US?

Checked the DIYEDEN USB section too and found this. Can't read anything about it of course. I noticed it has a headphone jack. Is it a USB tube DAC basically? If it is a headphone amp where is the volume control?

Is that a Toslink or USB input next to the coaxial digital input?

I don't know who will ship to the US, but it sells for $980hkd in Hong Kong, and probably 20% less in China. So probably about $130usd in China or so. I plan to get something like that on my trip there in December.

For the price of a DAC1 you can buy an economy plane ticket to Guangzhou and bring one back hehe

I work with a guy who is Chinese-American and he's been translating some of this stuff for me.

The tube unit in earlier posts is basically a tube USB DAC with a headphone output. It's a BB PCM-2702 USB DAC converter. It uses two 6N8P tubes in the analog stage. The headphone amp section uses two OPA2134 opamps and the signal it receives is AFTER the tubes, so this is kind of a tube/hybrid headphone amp section. The opamps are socketed. I see Nichicon, Rubycon and Wima type parts. The way you control volume is via your computer (kind of sucks in a way). They described the sound as very warm and romantic. There's a ton of pics of this unit here. I posted a few below. No price though! Anyway, looks interesting.

Oh man, my dad is going to China next week. I sent the company an email, hopefully they can send one to his hotel. A tube DAC and I can roll opamps? wow if I get this the gilmore might be out the door. I really want to try this. Looks great for the price

EDIT: Or maybe even just their standard DAC? I asked them to give me a price for all their products in the email

Here is a cheap tweak for you guys.Fltiz metal polisher.

This stuff works---i use it to clean all my power cord blades and connectors.I have been using this stuff for years.


Micheal fremer in stereoplile's october 2002 said The difference was not subtle,but enormous.

I just cleaned all my powercords and it made a great improvement so i remembered to let you guys know about it.
