$490 DAC DAC this weekend only:
https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=162272.0

I have this DAC... It absolutely blew away my $3,000 Exogal Comet.
Just saying.

This DAC with my Cherry Mono Block amps is an amazing combination. My Spatial M3 Turbo S Speakers rounds out my system.

Will these incorporate any changes, outer case etc? 

Or will they be simply checked over for working condition (which is fine) simply wondering what the refurb encompasses.  Thanks!
New enclosures and power supplies.  Other than that, cleaned up, fully retested and repackaged.  Thanks.

This is high praise, could you say a little more to compare DAC DAC vs Exogal Comet?
BTW, which DAC DAC version are you using?

Can DAC DAC HS be upgraded by myself instead of sending it to you?

Cherry DAC DAC upgrades are fully retested and repackaged, but they travel light (3 lb total) and secure in their very well padded (soft foam) 12” x 12” x 4” double taped shipping container.  Thanks for the question.

I have a problem every time I hit play on Foobar.

Here's my current setup:
Laptop (Foobar)  >  ISO Regen (USB filter with isolation)  >  WaveIO (USB to SPDIF)  >  DAC DAC HS  > Nuforce STA200 amp > speakers

There is this loud hash/distorted blast of sound (that lasts for half a second) when I boot the PC with DAC plugged in, or when I first hit play after stopping the music for some time.

The amp is DC coupled.

When I switch to another DAC, I don't have such problem.

Is it because DAC DAC HS is DC coupled as well, and some static or whatever is being passed on to the amp? Or is it Foobar or something else?

How can I prevent this? (I don't want to blow my speakers, it has happened before).

Try using Cherry USB instead of wave IO.   There no need to “doctor” the USB interface when using Cherry USB, so the “iso regen” isn’t necessary.  We even provide a gold plated USB wire.  It’s tested to show no data errors.  Clean start/stop with everything we’ve tested except Media Player when switching media mid-track and the volume cranked, and that’s only a brief DC step, inaudible most times.  We have confirmed this is Media Player’s fault, but we still use it for demos occasionally since it’s not a big deal.

Here’s the Cherry USB web page:
https://www.cherryamp.com/usb-to-spdif-converter

Cherry USB Features:
* Lossless USB to coax SPDIF conversion
* Gold Neutrik RCA output connector
* No driver installation necessary
* No power adapter needed
* Up to 384k/32b
* Slim case with standard Cherry Maraschino footprint and Anti-vibration feet
* Electrically Isolated Output to prevent gound loops
* USB 2.0 cable included

It’s also possible Foobar is sending junk data at first even though the interface is active. DAC DAC is designed to have fast start time after receiving valid data/clock.
