Hi Ian,

Ok, thanks for your answer. That's seems I will try this way (I will add an spdif board).
That is really nice to find all this good documentation.

Default BIII U.FL input adapter testing

Because of the internal ASRC architecture, Sabre ESS DACs are quite sensitive to the jitter from the input signals. Both async mode and sync mode are. I like this adapter. Itís kind of perfect solution to introduce higher quality U.FL connectors into BIII DAC. But still not as good as DAC which comes with U.FL sockets originally placed on the PCB.

I did some test with this new adapter on my BIII yesterday. It works very well. Iíve noticed some improvement: With BIII (DPLL bandwidth set to lowest) working with I2S FIFO at SYNC mode, If feeding signals with this adapter and U.FL cables, DPLL locks solid never lost; However, without this adapter and U.FL cables, it will lost lock occasionally(every 10 minutes roughly).

The BIII input adapter has 9 U.FL footprints, can support all modes: Multi-S/PDIF, Stereo I2S, Multi-channel I2S, or multi-channel DSD.

I attached some pictures below just show how the adapter works. Actually the BIII input adapter and the clock adapter were integrated into one PCB. So usually, they come as a set. Iíll supply each FIFO user from GB II one set PCB for free. But to assemble them perfectly is a challenge.

Default Test of BIII clock adapter with ASYNC and SYNC mode

BIII didn’t design with SYNC mode originally. But with this small adapter, it can now. Thanks for the backdoor under the original XO footprint.

Assemble the adapter first. Then remove the CCHD950 from BIII PCB. Solder the three pins of the clock adapter into CLOCK, GND and VDD_XO on the BIII PCB. That’s all. The assembly looks pretty nice.

With U.FL cable connected to the external clock from FIFO clock board and onboard XO removed from the socket, ESS9018 works at SYNC mode; while with on board 100MHz CCHD950 plugged into the socket and external U.FL clock cable disconnected, it works at ASYNC mode. So, having this small BIII clock adapter, it will be very easy to switch between ASYNC and SYNC mode. So, different modes with different clocks will be experienced and a lot of researching and comparing are waiting.

Please see the pictures below for the configuration and details. Please note the name of pictures for the meanings.

Yes, it really good. Much better then the DIP connectors I used before. Signals improved obviously.

now you just need ackodac and forget adapters

it was interesting to hear it confirmed your simple experiment showing unlocks every ~10mins before adapter and no unlocks after, very simple demonstration. your adapter is great, brings this signal integrity to those with BIII..almost

I hope so, as well as the D1 IV .

indeed, it surely must be in production now. i'm looking forward to drawing a line under the dac project for a while after I build the second D1 and focus on speakers

Ian.

Why don't you built a DAC by yourself?

Instead of tweaking an average 3rd party product you should built your own DAC.

It's just a PIC and a DAC on top of your stuff. Shouldn't be such a big problem for you.
