Hi Russ,

Thanks.

The Denon player itself don't have a DSD mode. Is there a possibility to externally switch the player's DAC to DSD mode?

The OTTO switch will be needed to switch between DSD and the MUX/Receiver output.

When the player is playing an SACD it is in DSD mode.

You could use a simple manual toggle switch to switch between PCM and DSD input on the DAC. No reconfiguration of the DAC itself is required.

1. The Buffalo DAC will decode either SACD DSD stream from the player, or the output of the MUX/receiver, which is I2C PCM (or so I believe). So, it seems to me that what I'll need is OTTO switch and no other switching at the DAC, while I may need to reboot the DAC after switching input stream. Is that right?
2. Is there any benefit in using shielded cable for the SACD DSD stream?

If you mean inches, then yes, it will fit. You will even have quite a bit of empty space.

I received my buffalo32s a few days ago, impressive packaging, impressive finishing !!. It is singing beautifully in my system already.

I have a very simple question though: how do I "short" L1 and L2 on the back of the PCB??? (I must be holly lost in translation, but cannot figure out what is the right thing to do here...and I read the whole forum!!)

Any help would be much appreciate it. A picture is attached just to illustrate how dumb a newbie can be... The only way I could figure out to "short" L1 and L2 is the one you see in the picture, by joining together the two outer grounds of the board... is that correct at all ?

Click the image to open in full size.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you
Pepe

Hi Pepe,

On the latest boards L1 and L2 are already shorted with a jumper (0R Resistor). No need to jumper.

That wire there won't really hurt anything, but it won't help either.

There should be a new version of the manual up very soon. Sorry for the confusion.

Cheers!
Russ

I might be wrong but it looks to me that you have the new board and that the jumpers are already in there. They are the short connections between the two external (analog) and the central (digital) ground planes. What you have done is to join the two analog ground planes, which will hardly do any good (or bad) as these are already both joined to the digital ground.

Sorry for this but it is hard to beat Russ speed in helping out!!!!!!!
