DAC Preamp wish list

Yes the manual knob sounds like a good idea - I will look into it.

I'm not sure about the modular approach but I can look at that as well.

As it happens we were using the normal Philips codes.

Bladeluis Embla.

Looks like a very nice product.

Think Clay is aiming at something a bit more affordable :)

It is getting very close now. I have found a good case & I'm just trying a few front panel ideas out. Balanced output is all sorted too & sounding excellent. I should have an ETA in about seven to ten days. Just need to check a few more things out first.

Rough final spec is;

Digital in; USB, Coax & optical.

Analogue in; 3. X RCA with one switchable to HT bypass.

Dual RCA outputs + Balanced.

Case std 400 mm width X 50 mm high.

Silver or black case with 5mm or 10 mm black acrylic front panel - possible rear text LED lumination.

No AES/EBU input?

No BNC (true 75 Ohm) input?

Wouldn't 2 Analog Inputs suffice?

 

No HDMI/i2s input?..........would have made a LOT of "OPPO with de embedder" users happy!!!

Understand it's probably a licence/fee issue though.

 

Fixed and Variable Output.......

Surprised no one has mentioned adjustable output voltage level/gain (attenuator pads.....jumpers.........EG....Benchmark DAC2?)

CRUCIAL for optimal (and IME preferred) direct connection to power amps!!!!

( For example......My active ATC's are only 1V sensitive!!!!)

 

Outboard DC PSU?

 

Sticking with "PCM only" AKM?

 

Predicted "ball park" price point?......length of Warranty?........firmware upgradeable?

 

Thanks for requesting our input Clayton...............Just my 2c........ :)

Hi Clay,

It would be nice to make provision for xlr input to compliment the output.

Sounds like it is coming along nicely, very interested in this product.

Sounds awesome Clay.

Can't wait to see the finished product. Regards inputs/outputs, I guess you could make these the base standard model (you're obviously working towards keeping a reasonable budget/asking price) and make other requests optional, perhaps at additional cost.

Any way just my thoughts.

Very much looking forward to it's release.

Paul
