I have just received some tapes from this company. I will start with the sampler and see how it sounds before spending big. It look promising but i will only buy if it cuts it. We will see.

Other DACs / Re: best quality/price ratio DAC
« Last post by stevenvalve on December 18, 2018, 11:00:27 PM »
Hi I dont think there is a best, just what works in your system. The trouble is i have a killerdac and those who do own one never really look elsewhere, or even bother trying others at any price. If i had to pick something cheaper to play with, it would probably be one of the TDA1541A dac kits sold via eBay and elsewhere with valves as the output if possible, preferably E88CC CCA 188CC output Valves and hopefully a valve rectifier 5U4G types.  Interestingly i have a modright valve output modified OPPO here, It is very good for the money, plays everything including direct from the hard drive..

Hi everyone .
if you can answer me, I would like to ask you which is the best quality / price ratio DAC, with a reasonable price.
little parenthesis on the killerDAC, in a nutshell what is it? and what distinguishes it from others?
Hello and thanks

Tried these old 1950s 60-s illusion made for Audio capacitors in the leak and really liked them. They are 4/0.33 and 4/0.1, They are on Ebay as i type and cheap.

I have been installing mostly standard parts into the 3rd leak and in a real hurry, i did not take enough time watching things, and when finished i put it back in service. After about 2 days i heard what sounded like a shotgun blast from under the leak, what the hell.... well i put the 4-47uf on back to front, and you know what happens when you install electrolytic capacitors with the wrong polarity don't you....... Bang.  Pictures for your fun.

I just changed the amp over to use UX 250 globes again from 245s and thought i will post some hi res pictures for the interested. With the 1930 globes it is indeed sublime. This includes the change to a Western Electric 1930 Engraved base 274A Rectifier and duelund capacitors on the output of the rectifier.
