    MHDT Labs: R-2R NOS Tube DACs

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

      My friend did already managed to compare Dave to DCS Vivaldi stack and the Dave was absolutly superior to DCS with detail retrieval.   In his subjective opinion Dave is world's best DAC in that catagory, I suppose Total DAC would be in big troubles while comparing. But we will know when we...

    Quote: I had a look at Pagoda. Great DACs inside, PCM1704. One of the finest DAC's chip ever made. There is a chance for a great sound.

      I guess you use a computer for audio. If so, try to put some distance between the DAC and the computer. The hiss should disappear.

      Joel, Havana, Stockholm are in fact cheap DACs, what would I say in this matter? To get the best caps in the price range of the DAC itsefl? I would not recommned such solution. I recommend  Jensen copper foil PIO caps (check the dimensions first) which are decent priced and very analogue...

      Audio Note tantalums are almost as good as Shinkoh. Get them if Shinkoh is out of stock.

    MHDT Havana DAC

        Jutiper VT is one of the best solutions there, it lets the music flow like Makk44 says. I put there several caps and  finally Jupiter VT was the best one.

    Are you sure the chips you purchased are genuine K from Japan?

    MHDT Havana DAC

    Costs of modding balanced Havana will be very high due to more components to change. 4 x output capacitors, 2 x tubes, 4 x chips. Of course you can do some modds, but fully modded will cost you a fortune, not worth it.

    MHDT Havana DAC

    Quote:   Board is taken from analogmetric, my choice is what components are used. It sounds different than Havana.   Yes ,there are heatsinks near the black gates and elna. Built-in seven independent regulation circuits for dedicated power supply to each block

    Mako44 I liked my modded Havana very much. It sounded really great. I finished my new project based on TDA1541A chip. I've been waiting for chassis and Vcaps CuTF yet. I didn't need two DACs, decided to sell one.   First minutes of working my new babe.

    Quote:   Mako44, I would tend to agree with that, replace Mundorf SGIO with something PIO (paper in oil), the harsh treble should dissapper.   C11and C12 are responsible for your problems.   Replace C13,C14 with 0,01uF Vcaps CuTF.
