DAC is a digital to analogue converter. Basically you connect it to a digital source(cd player or computer) via optical/coaxial/usb it takes the digital information in 1's and 0's from the source and then converts it into analogue stereo sound which we can reproduce with speakers.

As Audioholic has expalined about the functioning of DAC so I don't need to go onto that detail but in simple terms an outboard DAC is for those people who use a cheap source or AVR for listining to music. An External DAC of good qualtity could significantly give very close results to an Integrated stereo amplifier. We use the DAC here to do all the conversions as well as to act as the pre amp whereas the AVR or even a power amp section just acts as the section to send amplified signal from your DAC to your speakers.

Maverick Dac (from China) is another one which I would like to buy if you could arrange it.

There are lot of such stuff available at diykits They have distributors throughout the world except India. If you could become that, it would be great service to Indian audiophiles...

Hello Amarbir,

I suggest you can import as kits for DAC and sell as such, or assemble the kits and sell as product. This will help both the DIYers, as well as people who prefer them as finished products.

The Maverick is extremely interesting. Why not add the Peter Daniel NOS DAC to the list as well as other components such as the Gamma DAC..
