Don't get me wrong. I still use the Touch. I'm just playing around with alternatives.

My goal would be to use whatever source, hooking it up to the USB cable and ending up with the same sound quality.
The A-GD VI is not the perfect solution. Though it's acceptable at the momnet. I can switch from Touch to iPad without having a problem with it.

The current DI-VII seems to have driver issues and compatibilty issues - see Head-Fi.
A friend of mine didn't manage to make it work with the iPad and CCK+USB-HUB.
So. Better stay away from it for now.


If I look into the DIY market. I see the Wave-IO, plus as an option IANs reclocker as potentially best solution on the paper. (Please let me know if you see alternatives). That solution gets you easily into the 300$ area, which is IMO too much. It also gets too complex.

Solution:
Either Lucien builts a nice reclocker into his device or Ian offers an USB input for a little extra.. Or they team up to get rid of redundancies. From what I heard Lucien is working on a VII of his Wave-IO module. VI is already quite nice. Still it responds to all improvements done on the transport. The XMOS alone will not solve the issues around transport originated distortions. Maybe VII gets a bit better in this area.

And... ...you can control the iPad-iPeng with iPod or Android or PC. That's the great thing about the Logitech server solution. It works on all devices.

Cheers

Maybe a bit OT but I also have a bunch of the older Duet version along with my Touch. Are they tweakable to any better then original? I guess its mostly about PS-adjustments there or do you have any recommendations on what to do on them config related?

Yes they are tweakable. There's plenty of info on the net.

We gave up on Duet tweaking by the time the Touch arrived.
I still have two Duets in the workshop.

Thanks, I'll figure it out. I've been reading on soundcheck's - audio@vise: Touch Toolbox 3.0 some times but usually some pictures is gone. I guess you're aware of that?

Hi guys.

The other day I mentioned the Rasberry PI.

Since Raspberry PI is not available, while looking for alternative solution I stepped over another very interesting device.

Hardkernel ODROID-X @ 129$.

It's a 4-core 1,4Ghz device with 1GB RAM. Even Ubuntu 12.04 is supposed to work.
It runs the same Samsung Exynoss Processor as you'll find in the Samsung S3.

I think it's very interesting, since more muscles mean that you can also manage your videos.

For best audio playback a reasonable big rambuffer is possible with 1GB RAM.

It would still be half the price of a new SB Touch.

Cheers

I have a small question: some time ago I installed the Toolbox 3.0 on my Touch, though I wanted to check if the Toolbox is running but I only see the main menu and reacts with this:

Why is this?
