The γ24 high performance DAC core

Parts list

The table below illustrates the parts needed to populate the γ24 board. To obtain the blank γ24 circuit board and some related parts, visit the
AMB audio shop. You can get almost everything else from the vendors listed on the AMB Audio DIY Page. The recommended US vendors are Mouser and Digi-Key. Builders in other countries may also search Farnell and RS Components.

Parts recommendations

The following is a list of recommendations and options. Please read through this carefully before ordering any parts.


All resistors are miniature 1/8W, 1% tolerance, 5mm lead pitch. The resistor body should be no more than 4mm long and 1.9mm in diameter, not including the leads. Some resistance values may not be available in all brand/type lines.


There are three types of capacitors used in the γ24: conductive polymer, audio grade electrolytic, and multi-layer ceramic.

C39 and C45 are conductive polymer type for their ultra low ESR characteristics. They are through-hole with radial leads, 2.5mm lead pitch, a maximum diameter of 6.3mm and a maximum height of 12.5mm.
  • United Chemi-Con PSA
  • Nichicon PLF
  • other similar

C14, C16, C18 and C20 are "audio grade" electrolytic capacitors. They are through-hole with radial leads, 2mm or 2.5mm lead pitch, a maximum diameter of 6.3mm and a maximum height of 12.5mm.
  • Elna RFS (Silmic II)
  • Nichicon ES (Muse)
  • Nichicon KW
  • Nichicon FW
  • Rubycon Black Gate NX Hi-Q
  • Panasonic AK
  • Elna ARD(ROD) (Starget)
  • CapXon NK
  • other similar

The remaining capacitors are X7R multilayer ceramic type, with lead pitch of 2.5mm. Some of these may come with their leads pre-bent for 5mm pitch, you need to straighten them to fit the board. Please do not substitute X7R grade with others.

Integrated circuits

Please use the part numbers listed in the table above. Pay special attention to the manufacturer's part number suffix(es) and compare to the list. The wrong suffix may refer to a different package style that would not fit the γ24 board.

The oscillator is an important part of the DAC and is crucial to its performance. The preferred oscillator is the Crystek CCHD-957-25-24.576. It is pricey for a good reason. Alternative oscillators are shown in the list above in case you cannot obtain the CCHD-957.

Ferrite beads

For L1-L6, you may use either the Panasonic (axial lead) ferrite beads from AMB audio shop, or the SMD 1206 (3216 metric) chip beads by Laird or Murata. The Panasonic and Laird devices are preferred due to lower DC resistance and higher current rating.
