In understand that some of you may lost their patience, but display is a must for any CD player/transport.
The display board will have two options:

1. direct drive to LCD
2. drive to LED matrix trough atmel

Unhappy Sorry for causing trouble

Tibi,

I didn't mean to stir the hornets nest with my suggestion. Naturally, a display is better if possible.

As for me, I'm not growing impatient at all. I really appreciate all the effort that you especially and others have put into this project. It seemed from the outside that things were getting difficult in the area of the display. I didn't have any knowledge that would help you find a solution, so tried thinking out of the box. Sorry for causing trouble.

Overall, we are all with you and will support you in any way we can.

Don't forget an off switch(on remote if possible,and if not add some$) for display, my Meridian 602 is on 24/7/365 for years and my display is off at 99.99%

That is something you can put in yourself. Just break the power to the display. No issue. Good thought though....

The display is a multiplexed LCD and can not be switched off unless you power off the DSP.
Anyhow, we have ordered an transmissive LCD with back-light and switching off the back-light will give you the effect needed. :-)

Hi Fran,

Just to feedback... Thank you very much sharing the Precision Attenuators approach.. I tried it ... yes much better than using resistors alone.. as you can easily dial in and optimise the sound... I ended up with a total of 30db attenuation..

I'm using a buffalo dac (one of the earlier ones) and it stays locked no problem at that level. I think if I were ordering them up I would order a few - maybe get a 2 x 15db, 10 and a 6 as well. That would give you many combinations. That 25+15 was the highest amount I could go without causing dropout on the spdif line, so if your dac needs a slightly higher signal to lock on, then it might not work with that much attenuation.
