BTW, dont get too nervous. I am not doing any DAC chips, or even audio/video chips now. Not involved in any audio/video/consumer designs either. I am more than happy to see finally someone would bring out something to beat out TI and ADI, in fact.

Be nice if we could get a PCB designed for this for DIY use I'm extremely interested in building a 2 channel DAC using this chip. Or even an 8 channel possibly. How do you pass DSD to the DAC anyways? Is there a firewire input capability?

Read those patents a few days ago already. Looks like these are all you can reveal now.

This is exactly what I want to do, but I need to be able to purchase some samples. Still no answer to my sample question...

I would very much appreciate being able to buy a few samples.

Thanks!
Russ

Hi Russ. I am working on a schematic for a layout also. I have been 'experimenting' with the demo board.

How are your skills at the PIC micros? This part will need a I2C controller on board. I am thinking a PIC16F677 at minimum, maybe a PIC16F882 if I want it to do some other processes.
