There is a $149 stereo version of the xmos eval kit too! BUT, the xmos eval kits only come with a driver that beeps every few minutes. you cannot get a driver without paying lots of $$ for it!!

Both the stereo and 8 channel XMOS demo boards have been out for quite a while. Nothing new here.

I have been using both to test out things I needed to know to design my own application. While not bad, neither is exactly awesome. Still you can use them with teleporter and get some very good results.

The only downside of the eval board is the driver... It is not the "fully functional" driver, meaning that you get annoying audio warning...

I was thinking of getting the 2 channel XMOS reference board and using it with the teleporter for i2s into my Buffalo II. What is "not awesome" about the reference boards? Did you discover some problems with them as you used them? In what ways does your design application better the reference boards?

Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge.

Aaron.

Actually there is a free driver available from CEntrance and it works perfectly with the XMOS reference board.

If sound card option works, what is my connection type from PC card to B-III.

Thanks in advance!!
As for I2S, you can do it like I did and get multichannel. DSD hacking of SACD player is described at TPA support forum, search for it.

Perfectly? But wouldn't that be for Adaptive mode and not Asynchronous?
