loving my dacport:)

post #182 of 488

I remember seeing on some malaysian audio forum a picture of a dacport's insides. It seems it uses the same d/a converter as the dacmini, the akm 4396

but this isnt barring anyone from exploring their own dacports... the pictures on the forum were very blurry so i couldnt confirm if this was ture, but the photographer said that he saw the 4396 chip

Can be found onboard:

 

AKM AK4396VF Multi Bit 192 KHz 24-Bit Sigma Delta DAC

AD1896A 192 kHz Stereo Asynchronous Sample Rate Converter

TI TAS 1020B Stereo USB Audio interface

TI OPA 1612 dual-channel, bipolar-input audio operational amplifier

 

+ lots of passives on the audio board,

 

Can't post pictures though.

Link?

I promise I will put a lot of pictures here, as soon as I will receive my DACport. I will dismantle it piece by piece and do reverse engineering...beyersmile.png

Guys, you're really amazing! I wasn't expected to see that on your blog... neither on your site.

That's a real piece of engineering!tongue.gif So, in this case, I will not open anymore my DACport... biggrin.gif

My curiosity is satisfied now...etysmile.gif

I'm a big fan of CEntrance.  When the time is right I might repurchase the LX or whatever else comes down the pipeline.

I can't wait to get my hands on one of these.

I was wondering what would be a better fit for my HD650's as I already have a headroom cosmic reference amp... better to use the dacport lx or the audio-GD NFB-12 or just get the musiland 02US for just the DAC.  I'm loving the headroom amp with my 650's just want to bump it up one notch and get a good dac for that combo.  Anyone have recommendations?

The Centrance Mini looks good. I think might try to trade my Dac for one.

Do you know what the source device is, in the middle of this photo from the link you provided?  Is it running Windows 7?

Thanks Twinster!

 

I was hoping it was a standalone source.
