After the assembly and initial testing (mainly power supply) put in all chips and checked the power supply once again to make sure there is no loading. Connected the co ax digital output of my dvd player and there was no sound coming! Had to switch on the digital output in the dvd. To my surprise full bodied music!
The first review is from my wife 'earlier everything (vocals and instruments) were together and now i can hear it seperately'. I did not tell her in advance anything about the dac or its purpose. She only knew that I am doing something new.
I do not have much (any) experience with other dacs but this one sound better than any cdp i heard. It started only last night!
I can invite those who are interested for a listening session during week ends.
I had the pleasure of meeting venu here in chennai. Though he hails from Kerala he is the product of VIT Vellore and an Electronics Engineer.He is a confident young man and i am sure he will come out with a fine product
I am delighted you have proved me right.I could feel your excitement when you talked to me today.As i told you this beats the excitement when we buy something and enjoy it.When we try something and it comes out right there is nothing like it. Please keep posting your impressions about the SQ and all the best.
Venu, saw this thread late! Congrats! Job well done and even better that you are lovin' the new improved SQ!
Any more stage by stage pics of build? Hopefully, once we have the Gamma2 dac ready, we will have a couple of Dacs for reference. coming to Kerala?
Wish I could make it over there to hear the Philips tda and see the Auto Expo!
