In order to verify the vintage capacitor collection I slowly attained all perform to spec, I started to look for capacitor analyzers. The most well known is the Sprague TEL-OHMIKE series.

I have the ES9038Pro DAC playing both DSD/DSF and the more well known, high res capable codec, FLAC. Except on this DAC it goes up to 32 bits and 384 kHz!! Not to mention you can play all audio codecs in DSD native through a foobar2000 plug-in conversion. I have placed a piece of paper […]

HiFiEngine is free to register and after that you can download their entire catalog if you wanted. This gives you details on where to put volt meter terminals and check the biasing for […]

This behemoth is highly regarded in the vintage audiophile communities, with many of these bringing $100-$200 broken! I am looking forward to giving this baby a run with […]
Once again the values needed for the power to the DAC have changed, waiting yet again on the correct transformer.
