Hello all,

I've recently joined the forum and was wondering where I could purchase a SDTrans384 with clock (desirably) or a SDTrans 192 v3 (is it the same thing, different name?).

I am aware production is not planned but..... I REALLY WANT ONE (within a sensible price range as I can wait).

Also, what DAC would you recommend (under 1000)? I plan to feed my Silsonic SAP E-50t which will feed my Jamo c803's.

Please help!!

John

Well Bunpei. Perfection has to be challenged when there is no further growth in excellence. Please ask Chiaki to consider an release now so we can try to better his intentions. Together we might be able to push the barrier even further away. But this will obviously take some time... But it needs to be opposed and questioned.
Nothing is to be taken as granted - everything has to fight its way to achieve it if you follow me on this. Just as in the nature. That would assure us of that Chiakis solution is best fit to survive as there will as in nature be many competitors.

A wise salesman once taught me: it's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

So I'm gonna ask away: why aren't these beauties mass produced and sold according to the demand?

Forgiveness in advance.

John

Now Chiaki and Bunpei.

Could you please PM us in the line since my old legs can't take it much longer.
It would be much appreciated.

To our regret, the MCU used in SDTrans is C8051-based 8 bit CPU. It's almost impossible to control either SATA or USB. Some ARM-based 16 bit/32 bit CPU or powerful DSP such as AD Blackfin must be necessary.
As Chiaki's basic policy is "Be simple and streamlined in less noisy environment", any new adoption of complicated MCU might not be in his plan.

To SOUND_Rays, Qasha, Turbon and CeeVee,

We appreciate your interest on SDTrans384 and SDTrans-Sync option.
(SDTrans192 V3.0 can be upgraded to SDTrans384 by replacing its FPGA configuration EEPROM and MCU firmware.)
I conveyed your request to Chiaki. I guess he is positive in distributing SDTrans384 again. However, at this point, he can't announce any definite schedule on the next release.
We will let you know on this thread as soon as we have our final plan.

Please remember, SDTrans384 is rather expensive and it requires your effort to achieve a good result (preparing power supplies, DAC, casing etc.). It is not a commercial finished product but just a board kit for DIY users those who understand how to connect a transport to a DAC by way of I2S interface.
