Hi there !! 😉
first, Happy New Year !! 😉
second: unfortunately absolutely no news from here 😉 ..i´m „stuck“ at present to find the right toroidal transformer + the right rectifier for it (Dual DC +-15V) (as written here a thousand times) (btw. „burnt“ meanwhile 2 rectifier + 1 Philips power-board + 1 ES9038Q2M-board ;-( (so, be careful 😉 )
and because its always the same here lately, i just want to wish you a happy new year !! 😉
hope i´ll get something more interesting in future about this whole DIY-DAC-thing + ESSabre-boards !! 😉
(some quick and dirty pics (only for happy new year) ->Sony BDP-7200->HDMI->HDMI-extractor->I2S over hdmi receiver->I2S->Skysong ES9038Q2M (only single 12V at present)..(+but after connecting it via I2S its really really far better than the normal spdif/coax-line from the Sony BDP7200)..
many greets !! 😉
