"DENAFRIPS incorporated in year 2012, focus in developing high end audio equipment at a very affordable price. Throughout the years of intense Research & Development, and continuous improvement of the product lines, DENAFRIPS had finally settled with the current product range equipped with R-2R ladder DAC technology.

You probably have a faulty transformer there.
I have a Terminator and wanted to know which of the six caps are the output caps?  I’m might want to try better caps to squeeze a little better performance out of the DAC.
I use the I2S input.



I read in another forum that a further update to Terminator is in development-- which may include a link to an external master clock.
