Be warned that Optical OUT does not do 24/96. It is only good for 48KHZ
However, if you put decent quality CD or HD rips onto a USB pen and use that , it can sound very good indeed into a good DAC when you supply it 12VDC from a good linear PSU.It happily plays mixed audio files of different resolutions, and sounds surprisingly good despite the downsampling if you use the linear supply.

Hey Russ & Brian

Just checking in as to the shipping schedule. I notice that the orders that were supposed to ship the week of the 18th have not been listed as shipped yet. Is there some sort of delay?

Cheers

It looks like the Squeezebox Touch is another alternative with usb connectivity and digital out.

All the 18th orders have shipped. Check the email account you use for PayPal... there is a ship notification in there somewhere.

The only other thing I can think of is if you could connect the hard drive directly to the sabre and used a logitech programmable remote to control it. I have no idea if this is feasible or how hard it would be to implement it. Obviously you would need an ir receiver for the remote, the other problem is whether the sabre can decode flac, wav etc, I am guessing it can't so maybe I would need to add a sharc dsp. At this point you have to question whether this would be the best use of my time and whether I would be best off just handing over the cash for a squeezebox touch to connect to the buffalo.

If people have any other ideas I would be interested to hear.

"- An audio receiver is required for multi-channel surround sound digital output. "

From the specifications webpage.

Does that mean one isn't required for stereo?

Just one more question.
With a dual mono setup are all 16 dac's used (ie 8 per channel) or only 2?

I am guessing first prototypes are 6-8 weeks off. Just depends on other time demands.

Hey Russ,

How is this interface project coming? I trust you will add filters for use in multi-amping speakers, since the filters in the ESS Sabre didn't work out for that purpose? If so, allow me to lobby for channel time delay adjustments and volume trimmers. ...wish I could help but I never needed to learn C...

If you can set the optical output to output Stereo (vs multi-channel "Digital Surround"), then it will work.

If you use dual-mono mode, all of the DACs in the ES9018 are used for a single channel.
