My DAC is more DAC than your DAC because my DAC has more taps than your DAC!

Just a guess here, but the DAC should weigh approx. half of the weight of the power amp.

In happier news, the first article metal arrived for Yggy, so you'll be seeing that at a show soon (and Mike says "I don't think it'll take as long to get it into production as Ragnarok." His words. We'll see.)

 

 

Wow! Did it pass your FAI?

Everytime someone asks, they bolt a 2lb weight into the chassis.

I hope those are special audiophile weights. May be blocks of mpingo wood.

A 30-lb DAC must use BIG IRON power supplies.  :)

Actually that's the maneuvering equipment from a nuclear submarine.  Throttle control, reactor control and electric plant control, left to right.  I spent thousands of hours in front of each of those three units during the 70's and 80's...
