I am curious as to how the modified originals compare with the PLUS.

There are a lot of notes on audiocircle. Basically, it all comes down to how much it's modified. The plus is itself only a modified original wink.gif

As for those caps costing more than the dad, remember Wayne's super mod probably ended up costing 3-5x the cost of original dac!

The modified EE DAC is much better sounding than the EE DAC plus.  I don't use USB connection so no benefit for me going with the plus.

What about the Minimax Plus with all the modifications on the original Minimax? evil_smiley.gif

No one knows yet.  No one has come out with a modified EE DAC Plus yet and compared them side-by-side.  IF you are not using the USB connection, it is probably a waste of money to upgrade to the new plus.

Not really. The MM Plus sports two interesting features - 2 separate PSU and an upgraded tube section. As a result, it is much bigger in size.

 

I find the USB upgrade a waste of money for my case though.

I agree with eulover - the ps and improved tube stage could be significant.

Has anyone compared a Neko D100 or Wadia 121 to their Minimax?

I have a DAC Plus. Will The Belleson Mods work in my unit with the same part numbers. Does the mini max have separate regulators for the digital and analog VDD? How would the new 1.2 superpower regulators be used?

New 1.2 Superpower sounds promising!

I am not sure if you will have the same results as the original DAC.  Probably better to ask someone who knows the DAC plus.

Speaking of the Eastern Electric Minimax, anybody do any kind of tube rolling with this dac?

I know that earlier in the thread a different tube was recommended, psvane tube (see page 6 of the thread), which I have ordered and am waiting for. 

Anything else that has impressed?

I am currently using the original EE DAC tube with all my mods. ;)

Hi everyone,

 

I just got a EE minimax plus today and was installing the drivers for Windows 7 hm 64 bit.

The drivers i got from eeaudio.com was not working well. Bill, from EE told me he's a Mac user and could not provide me with any solutions.

Thou the USB is not really the most important but I would love to have it working connected to my PC.

Any kind souls can advise me on where i can get the proper drivers?

 

Thanks alot!!!!

Make sure you are using USB 2.0 as a minimum requirement.
