Sean - I'm getting loss of sync with my DAC too. Please buy one immediately

Once the testing is finished I'll take the DAC off your hands, for, say 30.

Kevin tried several coax cables of various length and quality but could not
reproduce any loss-of-sync problem or obvious data errors. Still testing
