Hi there.

I have a SymAsym Amplifier now ready working and I want to implement the feature to change the volume and source over a Remote and Rotate Knobs.

The Volume and Source should be displayed through a LCD or OLED-Display. I have read some of these pages but I dont know If I understood it right.

1.)Is there any Groupbuy to this?

2.)Is this controller changing the sound in any way?

3.)What is the "last" and "best" version to this?

4.)Did I understood it right that the Software-Part is OpenSource (This would be awesome)?

5.)Is this also realizable with a AT90USB162 Dev Board?


Is there any other Project/Board that you would recommend more if I want a Volume (maybe with motorized Potetiometer) and Source selection with remote and Display. I could program an AVR.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Greetings from Tschöhrmany!
Ron

Ron,

We still have boards available for sale at vicol audio : Webshop
In R-2R version the controller is transparent - not changing the sound.
We are using a custom firmware, therefore this in not opensource.

Regards,
Tibi

1.) No there is none such .I have posted the integral documentation such as schematics and firmware , and everyone is free to do what he wants and wherever project wants.
2.)There are 2 projects that do not change the sound : that project with alps motorized Potetiometer and that with r2r Volume do not change the sound !
Regardless what other on world said : all cmos/mos/jfet/PGA2310/TDAwhatevernumber Volume have their own sound , like I say dog barks and bear just passed by .....
3.) Project are as their are and if the readers are not confortable with microcontrolers and audio and electronics in general maybe this projects are nor for them .The best I think is the r2r and/or blue velvet motorized Potetiometer project ( but I say that again here).
4.) Yes i posted firmware for everyone to edit / use / modifie as inteded by everyone, there are the source code attached so no problems about modifiing .

There are by years a lot of projects made by exactlly as you requested ,but never posted here , only in romanian forum where now have dissapeared after the server that hosted forum crashed , but if you need : atmel Atmega + LCD + 4 source input select + one motorized Potetiometer + IR i will post this project here . Just say and i will find that schematics and firmware in my backup files and post here.


5.)As it seeems that AT90USB162 is supported by AVR BASCOM it means that this chip can be used on project but there are some modification that must be done . I do not own such chip so it is up to you to try . Say what project do you want to do and I will try to help .
Also : if anyone want to try some Group Buy I will support them with advice and help but cannot make and will not intend to open GB by myself.
Regards ,
Dan Zup

I think this topic should be moved to the Vendor's bazaar because parts of it are clearly commercial. If not, the Hypex Ncore topic should be moved back to Class D!!!!!

Default Help with software

I'm using the software attached and something is wrong and it drive me crazy.
So, when i'm using remote control (Philips) i need to press the key on the remote several times per second to have effect and is very annoing.
This situation is the same if i want to change volume or input.
If i press the button and keep pressed nothing happening.

Please note i'm noob in avr programming.
Thanks!
Adrian
