James, I think I failed to understand the nuances of your question, I'll defer to those more knowledgeable on these matters.

I don't this is quite Jeremy's idea. I think the idea is to have a single combined FIFO that accepts multichannel i2s input. The single most significant downside to the FIFO is that there is no deterministic way to synchronise two of them (or synchronise the FIFO with a video stream which is a more common challenge). So while it's in output very similar to having two but my understanding is that the datastream would all need to basically go through one FPGA configured as FIFO with buffer for multiple channels and clocked by one masterclock board (as you've said). That's a bit outside of the scope of the I2S -> PCM driver board though ...

I second what Jeremy (qusp) has said above too, Ian's one of a kind in terms of collaboration with users and almost unbelievably quick turnaround!!

thats correct, as it stands I cant really use this for multichannel/digital XO, but the thing is so darn good i'm continuing to collect pieces to use in the meantime to the rest of my system is ready and after that use it for my headphone rig

hopefully one day Ian will be seduced by the idea of running his ESS multichannel ()

James probably just read some of my dreaming out loud in his research. I have other multichannel USB and masterclock modules in my 'collection' to get me by for now (silly as that may sound)

I was hoping you would pick up on this and thank you very much for your kind words - it's a pity my "ol' noggin" wasn't a bit more adaptable and could absorb/understand this digital info better, but will plug on.

Yes, Ian is a real whiz-kid eh? Dunno how he does it, but really happy about it.

Hi Ian,
I own some old fashion dac chip suitable for NOS application (PCM56, PCM63, AD1862, AD1865, TDA1541, TDA1543), so if you want I could partecipate to help you testing the board.

Let me know.

To me this is a key attribute of this FiFo->PCM. It allows a true local master clock for the DAC but without the hassel SD cards and add and the flexibility to use whatever playback software you prefer. This would basically plug right into the EC DAC board in place of the SD player. It re-defines what we think of when we define a transport and DAC.
