I have no knowledge how to build an electronics. None. I keep reading about DIY dacs that outperform name brand ones, but can't assemble a kit. Can anyone tell me who I can contact to do this for me? Thanks.

Check out LB Audio systems. http://www.LBaudiosystems.com
The HB-DAC1704 dac uses the famous PCM 1704UK (R2R) dac chips in 4 or 8 configuration. You need at least 4 for a balanced design. 8 is the best.
The PCM 1704UK dac chip is considered one of the best sounding R2R dac ever made. No longer in production...
PCM 1704UK chips were used in some of the best CD players (ie. Simaudio Andromeda, Esoteric X-01).

The LB Audio DAC will compete with any big brand name DACs from 10K to $20K.
Good luck and enjoy!.

try this website http://hifimediy.com/DACs/ready-made-dacs/9018-dac /

I use the HiFime 9018 Asynchronous High resolution USB DAC on my HTPC / this is a really great DAC for the price... would be a lot cheaper than having someone build you one. :D
