I'd also like to know if it is possible to remove the SAA7220 from a CD player completely.

Dear -EC-,

I am studying the possibility to use the preferred NAS->Rapsberry Pi3->Mosaic option. I have a doubt concerning the WAV files, from this quoted description:

"Music:
Music stored on NAS
Music is delivered to RPI3 from minimServer + minimStreamer (UPnP/DNLA)
Music is transcoded to wav to offload RPI3
Separate setting required in minimStreamer to support transcoding
Tested with Synology DS216e NAS"

I usually store directly on WAV files. I imagine I can read directly from the NAS the WAV files, right?
I probably would use a PC first as "NAS"...or would it degrade sound?

Thank you very much.
M.

Hi guys. I have bought MUSICAL FIDELITY DIGILOG. First standalone dac ever made. It is beautifly made inside. Tantalum caps, voltage regulation, toroidal transformer.

I would like to upgrade it a bit. I know the NOS sound and i love it.

My question is.

Is it better to install AMARENO for USB or delete SAA7220 with FIFO RECLOCK board and stay on SPDIF/OPTICAL?

I know there is a 3rd ultimate way with sim binary mode but I don't know how to do this so please help me decide what to do.

Thanks.

You can read the WAV files from NAS but there is no meta data.

PC hardware would produce more interference than a NAS, think of video chip, more powerful processor, on-board DC to DC converters and so on.

Thanks -EC-,
It seems minimserver is the way to go. I have to study it further.

Great! We expect the invoices soon, then.
Maybe I'll get my Mosaic before my birthday, with chance

Cheers,

I was not prepared for this. I thought this will be a very good, a very interesting DAC. After many hours of going thru my files I now know this is a game-changer. This sounds much better then I ever thought digital has any right to sound. If analog sounded any better in past years - I don`t remember it doing so.

Thank you John, thank you Gordon for your patience, passion and ingenuity. Thank you so much for sharing your dream with us. It is a privilege of being part of the ECdesigns community: listening to music in its pure beauty, not to a system.
