Thanks Soundcheck,, all done!
Now I will remove optical connector and associated 100R resistor.

Then I just need to wait for some caps to arrive and I will do the other mods too :-)

One more thing to ask.. Getting a Newava S22160 is not too easy here in Melbourne!!
How about these ones,, will either of these be ok??

I've seen those Murata transformers on many recent quality SPDIF designs.

These won't be a bad choice. I do not have a clue of which one performs best.

Advise:

Make sure you don't use two transformers on the link!! It'll for sure make things worse.
If your receiving end has a transformer in place, you can skip the transformer
on the Touch.
As a general rule for SPDIF links: Always make sure to have just one transformer
on the link.

Cheers

No probs, I understand, Thanks ;-)

One of my DACs has no transformer,, and the other (interestingly enough) has had it bypassed in a "mod" that was seen as an improvement (on the DCX2496 thread),, but I think that was because the stock transformer was meant to be poor quality??

Cheers..

Hello SoundCheck et al.
i'm using since quite few monthes now the squezeplug on RPi and it's working very well.
I just upgraded the code today and it now embedded the LMS7.8 version, which came to be requested for an update on my SB Touch. thing that i did without thinking that this may not be compatible with TT3.
now after having resetted completely my SBT and retry to install & launch TT3, it goes into error and does not work.
is it normal? is there a bypass?
or do i have to rollback to firmware 7.7 on my SBT? if yes how to do it?
thank you in advance
BR

Hi Soundcheck,

I might have not read properly but is there a way to connect the SB Touch with TT3 to a DAC USB 2 (John Kenny Ciunas) without EDO ?

Thanks

It seems that both together are not working well, I have micro sound cut (like a buffer issue) and I preferred the sound with TT3

It's not that difficult.


1. You just need to apply the correct port ID. I'll always be the same, if you leave the DAC connected at boot.
2. The optimum buffer settings differ between isynchronous and asynchronous DACs.

I do think Triode introduced an updated USB driver to tackle those XRUN issues. It's recommended to install the Triode kernels.


Unfortnualtely I do not have a Touch for testing anymore. My own Touch finally broke after years of fiddling around with it.

I'm using a Cubitruck board, ArchLinux and squeezelite nowadays.

Cheers

Hi Soundcheck.... sad news about your SB, unluckily it can be often the destiny of the hard tweakers... I think I broke myself more than 20 CD players (luckily bought few money on second hand)...

Is the way you described for swapping your SB is the less expensive ? Can it allow I2S output as well !

I'm looking for the TDA1541 kit thread a board which allow a SB clone for network library and I2S output to slave directly an external DAC board (with uf.l connector in my best dreams..)

Thanks fir your reply Soundcheck!

Actually with edo only the dac is working but if I add tt3 I have buffer issue regardless which edo buffer option I am choosing.

But if I can have my dac working without edo it's even better.

How do you setup the port ID?

Avoid 76601/3C, it has bad LF transfer characteristic. If you prefer Murata, then go for DA101C.
