Agree! Let's find out what it can do soundwise.

Got my boards today - at first glance - quite OK. There might be some very thin ground lines but I have to have a closer look about if anything is loading those. The smaller through holes are drilled quite randomly :-). Not a big deal though - if the design is OK the drillings won't hurt the sound.

Good luck everyone and please share your findings.

My tracking seems stalled, I was expecting the boards by now.

Is everyone planning on the hifidino controller?

I think if using the software controller the upsampler is best jumpered if using a computer transport, since all 15 filters will be available, and multiply that by 3 if you include the dither settings. So 24/192 with 45 differing over sampling algorithms programmed by the pros.

Should be an interesting project should the boards make it thru customs.

Default BOM

I've started creating BOM listings with mouser... I'm sharing it here (it's not complete by any stretch) but it's a start.


To access the shared mouser bom listings... go to ;

Mouser Electronics - Electronic Component Distributor. Under Project and cart sharing...

Enter '6586cd42e9' for wm8741 digital receiver 1 -- missing pin headers - not sure of size

Enter '40fde56eec' for wm8741 digital receiver 2 -- missing pin headers - not sure of size & crystal

Enter 'e31d00d376 ' for i2c level shifter -- missing pin headers

Enter '27ccd0aaa1' for super mini dac v2.0 -- just started this one


If you get any further than I have please share your results.

If you find any errors, please keep me posted.

Thanks.

Thankyou, any opinions on the least expensive Auridino unit to buy that will work with this and the remote and lcd?

Looking at the Hifiduino website, looks like the code is written for the Uno/Duimilanove type Arduino's (ones based on the 328 chip).

Looks like you can pick up a Duimilanove for around $20 these days. They have technically been replaced by the Uno, but they should work fine for this project.

For the display, he used a I2C LCD, which kind of limits the choices, and I think is slightly more expensive then the standard parallel interface one. The problem with the parallel interface is it uses a bunch of the data pins. It depends how much, if any other stuff you want need. I think a parallel interface would work OK, and you still have a few other digital pins if you need them.
There are a few lines are init code that would have to change, and you would need pots to adjust brightness and contrast.

Please disregard the LCD stuff in my previous post

The arduino code supports both I2C and parallel LCD's, so you can use either.

The recommended silver apple remote makes no sense, it has 5 buttons, but looking at the code there are many more. I think this is meant for the Sony remote?
