We use all 50ppm 1% metal film resistors.

Cornell Dubilier or Vishay  .1uf bypass caps

105 and 80 Degree Cent Electrolytic General purpose bypass

Nichicon %5 film caps in the 2nd order filter.

We buy all our parts from Digikey, Dipmicro, Futurlec and Mouser.

We don’t use cheap parts like some amateur modders have posted on the net.  Changing general purpose bypass caps has NO EFFECT on the output circuit which is D.C. coupled and the cut off frequency of the 2nd order filter is above 162KHz

The original TI circuit for the pcm1794a used the lowly ne5534 and we will build the boards with i.c. sockets for the experimenter.   Why go to all of the trouble to make a great circuit board around these expensive parts and stuff it full of cheap parts?

Sony Records did their own blind listening test at Capitol Records in L.A. California with a few more than an audience of three and our single board unit beat everything else hands down.

Single DAC vs. Dual DAC.

A single DAC is wired in a stereo configuration.

A Dual DAC uses one DAC for the Left Channel and one DAC for the Right Channel.  Giving the Highest SNR Possible.
