Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

as it pertains to the EE Minimax DAC Plus, which I have Opamp rolled in the past. This time I rolled discrete Opamps and discovered a sensational way to match the DAC to any system; I call it the "Digital Toolkit", and I believe it would be well worth your time to read about it at Dagogo.com.

Just this morning I will make good on my promise in the article to install the discrete Opamps into the older EE DAC in my office. I have been "stuck" on this DAC in terms of writing for a while now. There is only one reason why; it's continued to offer efficacious upgrades to performance for a nominal cost. The discrete Opamps are more pricey, but well worth the difference over IC Opamps.

Perhaps the EE DAC Plus is now tapped out in terms of additional articles, but it has been a sweet ride! :) I'll continue to match different transports/players with it for more thrilling results. In my office I have a Cambridge Audio Azur 840C and Sonos. I had only been using the Sonos with the EE DAC, but now that the discrete Opamps are here you can bet I'll be using it over the 840C's internal DAC.

BTW, definitely use the AES/EBU link to any DAC, if it's provided. It uses the standard XLR connectors, and you can try a balanced/XLR cable.

I would normally put links to my articles, but in the past often they are removed when I do so. To find the article, called an "Audio Blast..." about the discrete Opamp rolling just go to the Dagogo.com website, click to enter, and you'll see it in the listing of recent articles.
