New SPDIF (optical/coaxial) Sabre DAC

Posted by HiFimeDIY 29/01/2014 3 Comment(s) DAC's,

We have made a new version version of the optical/coaxial input ES9023 DAC, this time in a case and with an added headphone amplifier. It has a trafo inside, so it runs on mains voltage directly. 
The left knob switches between standby, optical and the two coaxial inputs, the right is a volume knob that controls the headphone output (not the direct line output). 

Will be available after Chinese New Year, around mid february.

Adding an USB receiver input would make this DAC a complete solution. Did you think about it?

or maybe has it a (selectable) I2S input on the board to connect to a raspberry PI source too?

Dear HiFimeDIY people, I have a question about your Sabre SPDIF DAC. The description says: "It features two outputs, one of them going through a potmeter for controlling volume, while the other is straight out without the pot. " Is the Output with the Volume control the one on the back (RCA) or the headphone-jack on the front panel? Adiitional question: Is there a picture of the inside of the device, to check the general built quality? Thanks! Best regards, Johannes L. from Germany
