This is a 24 bit / 192kHz tube DAC built from a kit based on an article you can read on Lukasz Fikus’ Lampizator website here:

So this is theoretically a ‘Lampized Lampucera’ DAC.
The list of features and specs is based on the current version of the kit. I purchased mine a few years ago so I’m assuming it’s remained unchanged, but please use my photographs for reference. Hopefully they’re clear enough for you to see what’s going on.
4 separated individual precision voltage regulator.
High precision 1% metal film SMD resistors and metal capactors
High grade op-amp AD827 x 3pcs for the output stage.
A pair high quality RCA sockets for analog output.
On board jumper to select the digital input ( coaxial or optical ).
Input: Dual 15V AC (AC 15V,0,15V)
Digital / Analog converters: PCM1798 (24bit 192khz DAC)
Digital receiver : Crystal CS4397
Master clock jitter: below measurable levels
Digital input: Coaxial and Optical
Analog output: RCA 2V rms. @75 ohms
As you can see this is a good looking unit, properly housed in an aesthetically pleasing enclosure with high WAF.
You have the option of bypassing the tube stage and using the opamp version if you like.
Includes SPDIF and Toslink inputs.
This DAC is a great sounding component. It does what it’s meant to cleanly and without fuss. There is no hiss or hum or any unpleasantness when in use. Lukasz rates this design very highly.
Power switch is on rear of enclosure with red power light visible through small hole on front face. Measures 210mm wide x 310mm deep x 110mm high.
Happy to properly package and post to anywhere in Australia.
