New dac case

I finally finished a case for the Soekris R2R dac I built. The form factor is so it can sit next to the parasound p5 in the living room system. It sounds better than the dac in the p5. It will be used on the optical output of the tivo. The analog outputs sound really bad on the TiVo.

    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    Still needs a tung oil finish but I think it turned out well. Sweet sounding dac for about $300. Still like the Buffalo III better! Thanks for all the :smiley:
