I am wondering why a DAC needs a toroidal transformer?

HeHe! I didn't know for sure, but just pulled it up online :) Very unique hardware. The uber, multi small cap usage looked strange. The stuff isn't cheap, that's for sure.

Got the new Dac hooked up so far seems pretty decent , I will spend more time with it Thursday when I'm home for the day

I have it hooked up direct to my W4S mono blocks and I'm using my Sony Blu Ray as a transport " Coax " I'm really digging having a remote :)

I count 65 capacitors in that unit total. Can anybody confirm? That has got to be a record for any DAC.


The recliner steals away the tinkerer. Try to learn something everyday! KEEP YOUR WORD.
