Brian, Russ, What is the best way to connect I2S wires from the juli@ soundcard to the B32S (to prevent ringing) Better use serie resistors (20-30ohm) or straight connection? plz advise..

I'll be running the following setup:

[PC] Emu 0404 AES/EBU -> Behringer DEQ2496 AES/EBU -> Buffalo32 -> JLTI Tube buffered chip-amp.

Do I need to cut the output traces?

The digital lines already have a series resistance, but it is ok to add a bit more if you like.

I would just wire it directly and try that first.

Ok,

Two questions:

1. I ordered one of these:

I don't think it comes with a fuse. What fuse should I use?

2. Am I supposed to do something with the potentiometers on the power supplies?

1) 1A fuse should be fine.

2) Yes, you adjust the voltages to those recommended in the manual with them.

Please be careful. You may want some help.

Hi Russ,

I have been thinking about the measurments on my Buffalo32 and I of supposedly would execute those at full volume with my JT2. Isn't the JT2 just a bit of cable extension at that point?

Would it not be better to also enable the resistors for this case? Will it have ayn detrimental effect on the signal if you enable the resistors on the board and then run the signal through a specific set of volume resistors on the JT2.

Cheers

Thomas

1A is fine but 500mA works as well. I expect even 250mA to be fine. The DAC does not draw that much.

Nielsio: if you need advice how to adjust the power supplies send me an email lekkerlichaam<apestaart>hotmail<punt>com

I ordered two of those a few weeks ago. They came with a fuse. However, they had bare connections and wiring with the mains voltage exposed on the back, so be careful!

Yesterday evening I listened to the Buffalo32s more closely. I found two "disadvantages".

1) CD's with crappy recordings already sounded like crap on my Marantz CD6002 but now they sound even worse....

2) The bass seems to be extended to even lower frequencies; now my couch is sometimes vibrating

More serious: this DAC is brutally detailled. It has been a while since the haires at the back of my neck raised with some live recordings. I can only confirm what other people said before; very good imaging and depth. With great recordings my audio system now really sings! And it is still improving.
