Can I ask what the RCA outputs are connected to ?

Hi Brenden, those are my preferred I2S connections because I don't want a messy CAT5 wires  ;)

Hi Danny, how are you finding the USB-I2S module now that you have been running it for past few weeks?

Have you received yours Terry?

Hi Tuyen,

I haven't been playing the usb device at the moment as I've been setting up a long anticipated vinyl system.
I'm hoping to pick up on it in the next coming weeks though as I want to include it in my system to compare or use the vinyl as a reference to compare and tweak with the DSD playback of the usb unit.

Cheers,
D

Hey Danny,  out of curiosity,  what is your approach for making those comparisons?

Do you have a reference vinyl title, and same title in DSD.    Or do you record the vinyl and playback?

What are you using?

Marantz for sure  8)

Yeah, I am keen to see (and listen) his setup too. Based on what he told me last time, I think it would be a very nice setup  :)

who is first to buy

I already bought one of Pedja's new boards... unpopulated. I have also bought a board that will allow me to use simultaneous data mode.

I am looking forward to putting it all together.

p.s. Mick Moloney has already done this.

I don't see what all the fuss is about...

You cannot have a 1541 in the one box does both native streaming & 192...

I am resigned to having an I2S KD & something else for computer streaming...

Hi Rob,

Are you not going to get the Amanero with Clay's power supply? I spoke to Craig last night and he's indeed impressed with it, finally there's some hope for a computer transport...

Cheers,
Wil

Wil...

I have not heard it or benchmarked it with anything else...

I will wait until my Pre Amp build/Power Amp mod/Stat speaker project is complete before venturing further afield...

And ...of course...for a ZEN moment...
