If you want, you could also buy their PS, USB-In Module, Cases, Digital-Input Modul ect. (also assebled) for extra money. So that´s quite normal on this planet
BTW, i don´t wrote that these are the only DIY-DACs on the market, but IMO these are on the TOP-End.
It´s YOUR decision what you need and what you not need. There are a lot of people, who want to upgrade there existing CD-Player with a new "High-End" DAC and could install for example only the DAC-Board in there existing CD-Player Case, with no need to buy anything else.
It´s a real Module-Design, witch IMO is realy great. So nobody needs to buy something, what he don´t need.
If you are interested in a DAC from HiFiWERKSTATT hoer-wege
with a Case, PS ect., it up to you to calculate the complete price.
When did I say I have a problem?
I wasn't even referring to your post... I didn't even read your post in fact.
I was referring to the DACs that I mentioned...
I was just saying that if you can't 'use' it in the form that it was purchased, then it's not really a good reference for the price.
A can't consider a DAC to be a equipment until I get a power supply to power it, case it up so joints don't get shorted, wire up connectors so I can connect something to it, etcetera...
The opus and buffalo DAC's are modular as well, and this is why I didn't recommend any price estimate for them.
