The customary level is still -10dbV on VU meter; taking 16db headroom gives 2V rms or 5.6V peak-peak. Unbalanced. It may be time for a smaller standard, but who will be first to offer a "wimpy" output?
System designers insist on silly supplies like 3.3V.
The least-distasteful way to get 5.6Vpp from 3.3V supply is a rail-doubler.
Page 1: "Compared with existing DAC technology, the PCM510x family offers up to 20dB lower out-of-band noise, reducing EMI and aliasing in downstream amplifiers/ADCs. (from traditional 100kHz OBN measurements all the way to 3MHz)"
Punctuation typo: period after "ADCs" should enclose the parenthetical clause.
PDF glitch: when trying to select the right column (1st page) I get the left column also.
Pg 25: "...reproduce virtually all frequencies through to it’s maximum sampling rate of 384kHz."
No apostrophe in the possesive of "it". (I no u don't no, but someone in TI ought two.)
And "virtually" is a red-flag weasel-word. What do I really get? I bet it is -1db at 75KHz -3db at 150KHz. Really, not virtually.
Pg 23: "The XSMT input pins voltage range is from -0.3V to DVDD + 0.3V. The ratio of external resistors must be considered within this input range."
English: This is really awkward phrasing. "considered within"??
Engineering: 20% over "ideal" causes damage?? Houses, bridges, meters, and gauges are designed for 2X to 3X over nominal stress without damage. Stuff happens. You can't put a 100K resistor before the input diodes? Then change the threshold to some lower voltage.
