You just know some people will want that 3db extra DNR from the dual mono config.
Oh come now, Russ. We all know that Each half of each IVY needs its own separate Placid......

Ok, well I personally might be temped to use one placid/placid BP per mono channel, but I would not go beyond that.

Still you never know with some folks.

If there are decent onboard regs and the shunt is there already for avcc, do we really need a shunt external or can we just feed it a reasonable regulated 5v? (LM317 etc)

If going two board dual mono, how do you feed them/sync them together? (I2S input)

Thanks!

Yes the on-board regs are quite good.

A good LM317(or LM317/LM337 for bipolar) based supply like the LCBPS/LCDPS is perfectly fine.

Still it does not hurt anything to use something a bit better for the pre-regulators. And thats the attraction of the Placid/Plaicd BP.

I would say the biggest impact would be felt in using the Plaicd-BP for the IVY-III, but you would still get superb results with the LCBPS because the PSRR of the IVY-III is excellent.

Cheers!
Russ

Forgive the ignorance but is this BuffaloII a drop-in substitute for the Buffalo32s?

Buffalo II + IVY III would be yes (just a bit taller). And it has the added bonus of a balanced to single ended converter for both balanced and single ended output at the same level.

You would have had to add a Ballsie Lite(or similar circuit) to get the same thing with Buffalo32S.

Cool, can't wait to order(/build/listen) (:

Tempting, very tempting...

I'm assuming as it uses the same chip that the volumite for the B32S will work in a B-II?

Seems like this moment is the eye of the tornado before the first counter onTP's site goes to zero. Xellent time for (noob)questions.

- I want to use three BP placids for the Ivy III
- Three single voltage placids for the BII

Does one of those SP placids feed the "included AVCC shunt" ?
Or must I use another 2 SP placids

I have a Philips CDpro-2lf player/chassis and want to use the I2S output.
6 pins : EF/SCLK/WCLK/DATA/GND/V4.

- How do I connect it to the BII with best sample rate setting ?
I also have a Metronome
-Can I still use the Volumite, which also uses the the I2S header on the BII ?

Thanks !
