Hi all. First post here.

I have an EKS XP10 midi controller with a Burr Brown DAC which isn't being recognised by windows. It's a nice DAC with ultra-low latency so I'd like to fix if at all possible.

I've taken it apart and found the chips have had the codes scratched off them. Apparently manufacturers do this sometimes so their products can't be reversed engineered.

Any suggestions? I was thinking of reflowing any chip or solders that might be badly connected. I have a solder reflow station. Perhaps I could start with the chip that contains the device descriptor information?
