Now that my dual AK4495 DAC is putting out just noise, went back to the AK4490 DAC.
AK4490 is a good DAC, its background is darker but it lacks the dynamics and resolution of dual Ak4495, especially with Burson opamps. Too bad I didnt get to experience it longer.
At some point I would like to try the dual chip DAC again, but for now decided to build the AK4497 DAC from DIYINHK.
Couple of questions:
1. DIYINHK does not seem to offer COAX input option. Is it possible add later from a third party source?
2. DIYINHK has several power supply regulator options, from $15 to $60.
At these regulators with "hybrid choke coil" make a desernable difference?http://www.diyinhk.com/shop/audio-kits/ ... 15ax2.html
