What are the main features of this DAC ?
And what are the main goals of its design ?

  • Extract the pure performance of the last built non-oversampling true 16-bit TDA1543 DAC from Philips
  • Optical & Coaxial inputs (leftmost switch on the photo)
  • DIR9001 96 kHz SPDIF Receiver (lowest-jitter on the market - 50ps)
  • Supports sampling frequencies from 28kHz to 108kHz (continuous range, including non-standard frequencies)
  • TDA1543 16-bit DAC - the original from Philips®
  • Passive I/V conversion
  • No Op-Amp - direct output with 2Vpp (will drive any power amp well)
  • Huuuge capacitors on the output path provides sub-Hertz cutoff frequency (<0.3Hz on a 10kOhms input)
  • Dual Stage power supply regulation (for a super low background noise level)
  • Separate voltage regulator for the DAC and the Digital SPDIF receiver (same reason as above)
  • Battery-powered with a single 9V NiMH battery (optional - but without it you must provide a clean 12V - 15V power supply)
  • Smart battery charger on-board (quickly charges the battery when depleted, keeps it charged at low current when idle)
  • When both power switches are on, the battery is recharged, and is also used to buffer the external power, completely removing hum.
  • Will Directly drive any power amplifier
  • Easy to carry around and use it at your friends home 
  • 2+ hours of listening on the battery alone

Yes I have the DAC 3 

Its more a side grade - but I like the sound of both of these little DAC's

I've been considering grabbing the DAC3 for some time now. The fact you've side graded, i assume its worth its asking price.

This version is a touch easier to operate with the toggle switches 

The new version has an added USB 

 

I would be happy with either

      The weight alone shows that a solid power unit has been integrated, capable of guaranteeing stability. The 6800uF filter capacitors, a ring core transformer and electronic volume control all make a clear statement. The SV-400 is also equipped with a D/A converter in order to playback music formats offered by a PC or music server. A USB socket acts as the input here.

      Hi,
       
      So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire.
       
      Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play:
      - music currently on a hard drive (internal and external);
      - tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast;
      - streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone.
       
      Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers.
       
      I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year.  The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs?
       
      Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles.
       
      Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

      Price: $100 Item Condition: Used, so 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Parafield Gardens State: South Australia Payment Method: Cash or Paypal. Reason for selling: Ares II and D10 DACs Further information: Prefer to Audition (utmost care taken) for a local sale, but I can post at buyer's expense. I think this DAC is well enough known to be a great DAC for the price new and an absolute bargain at this price point.
      I am willing to consider swapping with just about anything audio related in the price range with financial adjustments either way.
      This is the non USB version, and does not come with a power supply.
