View Full Discussion If I'm seeing this correctly, this unit has both the DAC and AMP in one housing. Is this coming as the next drop because I'm very interested.
This Drop is just the DAC. The YouTube video you have attached is a different design and is BOTH a DAC and an AMP.
Thank you. Considering how big the dac is, I was shocked to see that it's possible to combine both dac and amp in one unit. Already received the 02 amp from the last drop but will definitely consider getting the combo unit if they're planning to massdrop.
We do plan to make a combo unit, I'll be posting more details on this before the ODAC and O2 drops are completed (still waiting on a couple key pieces of information before we can post).
That said, if you want to get this and make a combo unit using your existing O2 amp, you shouldn't have any issues. The DAC board is small enough to fit in the space on the O2 where batteries are normally stored. The chassis for this drop is bigger than it needs to be so it can match the chassis on our O2.
You'll have to figure out a creative solution for holding the DAC in-place, but it's probably not too hard.
Thanks for the info Will. I am going to have to just buy the combo as I don't trust my self opening these things up. I'm sure I can get a good price for the 02 amp on craigslist.
Will the combined o2+odac have a line out that passes the amplification?
It will have a line out that passes signal from the ODAC, not the amplifier (if you want to pass signal from the amplifier onward, you'll need to plug into the headphone jack).
