hello again,

a question most likely to Oliver or anybody who's used twistedpearaudio's spdif receiver.
I'm unable to find the tristate dip switch and according to the manual and Oliver's post here it should have AIF/MS turned on.
Frankly speaking I didn't get the idea how the damn switch works from the manual. Could anyone please assist, should it be wired as on the pic below?

Default Layout

I'm thinking I'll but all the digital stuff in a box...
ie transformers, 2x psu and the regulators

Then use a military type connector to connect these voltages to another box which would house just the red baron dac itself, and the tube stage (with it's own analogue PSU).

Some how I'd have to ground both sides, and power up both sides.

Would this cause a problem?

Cool Good source for Jfet 2SK170BL

Anyone needing the 2SK170? Ebay pak arrived this week. Happy to report that assembled Salas shunts. They worked perfectly right off.
My source for the Jfets appears to be reliable.
2SK170 BL Original Toshiba FET N CH K170 2SK170BL x 8 | eBay

Now no excuses. All parts in hand. Need to build a chassis for this beast! Thanks Oliver for making this part easy.

The DIP switch config on your photo is correct. Witch Red Baron version did you have?

Just curious, if I wanted to use an external usb i2s transport (and swap it out) would that be possible?

Not sure I am understanding your question, but I use a WaveIO card as the 'external' USB>I2S converter. Works very well with TDA1541A. Swapping is as easy as disconnecting the I2S cables and putting in a different source of I2S signal.
