如無記錯 Buffalo III 可直入 DSD signal, 那你只要 USB/SPDIF convertor 再加個 program 就可以馬上有得聽！ 作者: mdlover 時間: 2011-11-8 Tue 14:21
remember ESS9018 accepts DSD input but doing DSD to PCM inside ........... 作者: steveha 時間: 2011-11-8 Tue 16:13
I have no idea what ESS9018 is performing internally. But at least the connections for DSD and PCM are totally different.
For DSD, Bit clock -> DCK, Data1 -> D1, D3, D5 and D7, Data2 ->D2, D4, D6 and D8. In this way, all 8 DACs within ESS9018
are fully utilized and the gains are good enough for most preamps.
But for Buffalo II, the DSD and PCM are sharing the same input pins. I really wonder that Buffalo II is not using all 8 Dacs in decoding DSD.
Received the exD USB interface yesterday. It took me only one hour to set it up. A LVDS-HDMI I2S interface was integrated into the exD to send the PCM signals to my Wyred DAC 2.
DSD signals was directly connected to my Buffalo III. I was most impressed with the native ASIO 2.2 driver and the DSD plugin for Footbar 2000. Also, DXD (24/352.8) is just a piece of cake for exD.

sorry for the missing reply, Eric.
the new dac module will be ready soon, as i'm now finalizing the design and cost. 作者: ericj 時間: 2011-11-29 Tue 21:15
Sorry Mdlover I am not blamed on you missed my enquiry. Cause I don't want buy a lot of equipment back to my home since last month that I heard your DAC that make me very suprised . You just used a very simple circuit convert the digital signal to a unforgortable music. Thats what I looking for. Wish all the best and wait for the new DAC to launch out. 作者: amhlee 時間: 2011-11-29 Tue 21:31
this is another output transformer called "FineMet", it's an amorphous core developed by Hitachi. they are even more expensive........
it is located in the upper left corner of the photo.
you can also see the DAC module is now shielded by mu-metal sheet. the user reported that it is 2dB more quiet with the shield.
I can't tell how they sound because this setup is in the USA. 作者: hercules 時間: 2012-3-9 Fri 23:14
Finally get a account here and lau ming here.
Using ESS9018 and WM8741, I tap both DAC with DSD out from eXD, surprisingly WM8741 is very outstanding!! but I have to set the dip switch every time switch between DSD and PCM. 作者: amhlee 時間: 2012-3-9 Fri 23:18
Which WM8741 DAC you are using at the moment ? 作者: hercules 時間: 2012-3-9 Fri 23:21
exD now have MPD support!! Just bought a fanless PC for ripping and playback purpose...
