Default Any interest for a HQ digital audio player ?

Maybe slightly off topic, but after noticing there is lack of quality digital audio players on the market I try to get some info whether it is feasible to start selling mine eaither as complete unit or as kit.

Indeed there is a lack of such players.

Is this an project/experiment or a commercial product?
If commercial, you must pay our advertiser's rates.
Please see our Audio Vendor's Bazzar > Announcements The rates are very reasonable

I'll give it 'till tomorrow.

Default Commercial ?

It is definately not a commerial product. So far it is a personal
DIY project from me.
I just like to know if there is interest in something like this.

Hi,

Looks very intereresting Is Flack open-source? Are you willing to share your research and findings?

I think there could be a better place for this thread in our Digital Forum, so I'll move it there.
A recent thread dicussed PC Audio , but the thread widened as it progressed.

Cheers,

FLAC is open source, I`m also considering to make the other firmware of the device open source.

I have been thinking about creating a HQ player/system too . But I was thinking of using a $300 Dell PC, Windows, Winamp 5, Losses Compression, DAC, Gain Clones / active speakers and so on. Everything including in the kit, even the speaker wire.

The reason everything is included is that the overall sound quality will be the same and can be a reference point in tweaking and conversations in this and other sites.

Oh the tweaking we could do as group on such as system.

All built from diy parts/technology found on this site (other then the computer). Open Source disclosure on how to build all of it so that everyone who builds/buys it will hear the same thing.

Currently I am working on the final piece of system, the active speakers. Once done I will build a couple systems and lend them to folks for feedback. My estimate on the cost of the system to build/buy is $2500 (without computer).

Some people would only build what they need.

I could go on and on... but I too don't know if many are interested in such a system. I guess I will find out when I lend out my first couple of systems. When... if all goes well... by spring 2006.
