I have an OTTO II and Teleporter in a modded Denon 3910 that exports I2S/DSD. (OTTO corrects the R and L channel reversal of DSD output as it shares two circuits with PCM). I snagged 5v off one of the existing boards in the Denon, which I presume would be clean power considering the use. It sounds fantastic.

My SPDIF 4 has only been powered by a TP LCDPS set to 4.75 w/multiple outputs connected and no issues with SQ there either.

It's the first version. The C0G/NP0 cap is ideal for the application.

Yes indeed it is. Also the current draw of the circuit itself - is a few uA (micro amps) - not even milliamps.

I have read that it should be possible to connect one I2S and three SPDIF sources directly to the BIII and using the built in mux to switch between them. Has anyone succeeded with that? The I2S works fine but I can not get the SPDIF to work. Just wanted to check if it should work so that I know if it is worth to spend more time fault tracing.
