"but I would still like to understand how offering well documented, well measured, and arguably transparent, audio designs is a problem for those spending their money on audio gear? "

It's not, relax.

However, I am. So is Scott. You need to read more and maybe get a little experience before trying to make a particularly bad analogy.

Getting back to the subject, I would like an SD based portable/battery device (possibly USB recharged). Device drivers are a nightmare in any OS and there still are expensive USB audio devices that folks have drop out problems with at high bit rates. This eliminates the USB IP. Comments?

A good 24/96 field recorder would fit the bill, but my latest WTF moment was when I found out that I can not put 24/96 files on my Fostex and play them.

I have this one, it plays 24/96 files, and records them.

Right, I think it's the stupidest thing. Considering I've toasted the P48 on one channel, if the Tascam is a good substitute I'll make a gift of the Fostex to SY.

One more reason to use ribbons.

Not a comment - a few questions. Would you want to program the SD card used external to the device or have the whole thing accessible via USB as an audio 'thumb drive' ? If the latter then is USB high speed important to you? What sample rates would you wish to see? Also would .wav support be sufficient or would you prefer FLAC?

I don't really care, uncompressed .wav is OK I'm fine with simplicity. A micro or FPGA that streams the data directly to the DAC is a good start. Sophistication could come later. This puts the design challenge on the analog front, a super clock and DAC, why have to learn how to write bullet proof ASIO drivers (or pay someone else)?
