Hi,

Sounds like a valuable project you are doing!

While you are upmarket from this SI project

you might find some pointers from it ! US$149

as a kit . How about offering balanced and

unbalanced options. That would assist DCX2496

users as well as 5:1 people. Why not plan it for

7:1 expansion so you ready for the future.

Regards and good luck!

Default Ad815

Consider using the AD815, it hugely outperforms the 627/634 combo!

More resolved highs, real air and extension,
Great mids, on par with 627
Deeper, tighter bass. real low end grunt.
Open and detailed soundstaging

Default Now we are getting somewhere

Thanks guys for ur interest, sometime today or tomorrow me or hau will upload the project outline and schematics too, intent here is to learn from the experiences of others and help others do such a project themselves.
No doubt the project at silicon chip is very good but i m sure they wont give schematics, layouts and most of all firmware for the micrcontroller, which is intended to be posted here (may be)

So, can someone translate what this high end pre will be capable of?

Could I use it to replace the Receiver in my HT?

thank you.

P.S.
I am planing a HDAM structure.

for mcu,It will be a couple of board design for 8051 or MAXIM.

for the output buffer,I will try AD815.and I have a solid based buffer design,I have finished the archetype test lately.
