@c12mech:  Glad you are enjoying it

 

@everyone else who has built a board:  Anyone try the SPDIF out yet?

post #92 of 222

Yes, it does. Sounds the same as if I set my digital output to 16 bit.

Doesn't sound quite as good as the same thing at 24 bits.

Good design, works well, sounds good. I know the next version

will be easier to solder.

 

Thanks again!

Is it still possible to get one of these boards?  I am looking for exactly this device!

More boards will be available in the very near future.

Cobaltmute is being nice and is trying to keep the pressure off of me. wink.gif  I have the production SkeletonDAC boards in hand and am working on the website and kits as we speak.  Maybe another week ... two at the absolute worst. smily_headphones1.gif

any word on this? id love to build one!

post #97 of 222

Still working on the kits and the website, but it will be soon.  They'll go for $20, complete with mini-USB (case and output connectors extra). biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

I would like to try my hand at building this as well, especially for that price. smily_headphones1.gif

very interested in building this. smily_headphones1.gif

 

would it work to build this with regular through hole components if i use the same values?

No, the DAC chip will not respond well to the inductance/capacitance/resistance from the leads of through-hole components.  What may seem to be trivial values from the leads at through-hole size can end up being monumental to the tiny currents and voltages present in the DAC chip.

Well, I'm taking some time off around the 4th of July, so maybe it will give me a chance to get everything finalized.

These are finally available.  Price is a couple of dollars more than mentioned previously - I didn't realize it would take over 1100 ziplocks to make up 100 kits.redface.gif
