Ive had my SD-1955+ for a while and after about two months it began to make a sort of white noise ringing that was just always present no matter what when its on, any volume level. At higher volumes you cant hear it as well but it sounds terrible. I stopped using the thing for a while, it is my first dac Ive ever and it wasn't that hard for us to go back to just regular built in pc dac's. I bought this for my brother's birthday last year and now I want to fix it by his birthday this year for him. I've seen that people change out the opamps but it seems everyone uses a different one so I'm not sure which to go with, there are three total. Some of the capacitors sometimes get replaced but I have no idea what goes into that because I've never done any custom work on a circuit board like this. Lastly in my research I found people saying changing the power supply is helpful for some reason, once again I'm not sure if that's just buying a different power cable or actually replacing a part. I've done a few hours of searching now and there is hardly any threads on this dac and I found none on the ringing, I only found it mentioned in one or two posts but those people are so vague when they describe the fix that it doesn't help me at my newb level of audiophileness.
If anyone could help me figure out what parts to buy and replace I will use this as a learning project, I consider the thing scrap already so if I manage to fix it I would be stoked.
