I’m about to finalize this sound card mod. The output now is taken directly from the WM8770IFT, coupled with Jensen Copper Foil Paper Tube Capacitor (before it was Mundorf Silver/Gold/Oil). The sound improves quite a lot.
Soon, I will add an SRPP (tube output) in order to make this mod more compatible with most preamp or amp connected to it. After that, well, I think I will have an adequate digital player as source to replace my CD Player. Probably. Not so sure though 😉
