Latest build

I finished my latest build today, a Pro version 3 board with a ES9018 DAC board and a remote linear power supply.
I had no issues with this build and I am very happy with the results.


@Steve1 Steve,

I hope it sounds as good as it looks :joy:

Great Design, Beautifully Assembled and nice photos :+1:

When you say remote Power Supply do you mean that there is Only a 5VDC PSU that is not shown (or integrated in the enclosure) ?

What is the Function of the Heat Sink (finned thing in bottom LHS). What is connected to ? The DAC Board ? Or Something Else ?

Regards, Kevin

Hi Kevin,

The main power supply is in a separate enclosure, it contains a 15v 2A power E core transformer and a Analogmetric ( LV30 variable voltage regulator set to 12v

The 12v is required for the DAC, under the heatsink is a LT1963 low noise 5v linear power supply module which feeds the Pro V3 board.

The power supply is remote switched from the front of the Pro V3 / DAC enclosure. I sourced the black enclosure on eBay.

Yeah, I’m really happy with the result,it’s even more satisfying when you first turn it on and everything works!

Cheers, Steve

There seems to be plenty of options for this on the tinternet. Do you mind sharing exactly which board/model/link you used ?

Kind Regards, Kevin

Hi Steve
Looks like a great Project. Is it possible you could draw up how the Pro-3 is connected to the DAC-board ?


Hi Thomas,
Thanks for the compliment :+1:. The connection is very straightforward with only three connections required (see sketch) I used the connection leads that were supplied, soldered them together and sealed with heat shrink tube. Try to keep the wires as short as possible to avoid any possible interference.
