Video #2 in the HL Complete Build Series, found on YouTube. This time I am showing my EDS 88A Capacitor Tester build. This one runs a bit under an hour in length. Soldering well over a hundred pad locations in this one!
HL tears the ES9038 DAC down to the bones for a full hardware upgrade! In stage 1 of upgrades, I worked on the analog side of the board, replacing nearly all the stock parts, including: resistors, DIP-8 sockets, and capacitors. The results have been impressive, giving a much more reference leaning tone. (ELNA SILMIC Super Gold included)
