Maybe soon. I am pressing to finish it up, but I am also working on something new that may render this module obsolete soon.

Brian and I are having strategic discussions to try to figure out the best logistical plan.

Default working on something new that may render this module obsolete soon...

Russ,

Give us at least a little meat to byte on... What is this audio device that could render it obsolete?

A hint?

Thanks
Do

Well every USB transport needs a host...

I am working a source that actually is a networked host. Think DLNA etc.

Default USB...

Russ, I do hope that a SOTA USB-I2S interface will still be on TPA's menu. Even if you do develop a very good ethernet interface, there are plenty of TPA customers who are already married to the USB approroach, who own highly optomized USB output computer sources.

Yes it definitely could.

You won't need a highly optimized host for this approach either, just the files you wan to play. You actually don't even need a network. There will be other ways to get at your audio with this approach.

There is nothing magical or even particularly beneficial about USB for audio. Don't get me wrong, its a fine solution, but I am not convinced it is the best - quite the reverse actually. I am certain it can be done better.

What kind of latency are we talking about and will it be ASIO compatible?
