Default Select I2S and Coaxial input by Sidecar and 2bit selector

Hi, I am having problems that need your sharing or instruction to solve it.

I am rebuilding my B3 and want to be able to switch between I2S and Coaxial SPDIF using 2 bit selector.

I am connecting board like attached diagram. My problems are:

1. Do not know whether 2 bit selector and Sidecar are correctly connected.

2. Could not LOCK with I2S (I could LOCK with SPDIF from WaveIO) already tried changing SPDIF autodetect Bypass/Use.

Thank you very much.

If you are using a single S/PDIF connection, and OTTO might have been a better approach than the Sidecar.

I assume you have power connected tot he single S/PDIF module (not shown in your diagram).

Is the Sidecar connected top the DAC using all pins? I ask because it requires power, which can either come through the 20-pin connector or the control pads.

If you are triggering the Sidecar with one of the 2-bit selector positions, you need to reduce the Sidecar's resistor from 10K (supplied) to something lower, like 1K.

Thank you, Brian.
I connect Sidecar and B3 using all pin, also use it to power up Single SPDIF module. I will use lower value resistor, is my connection between Sidecar and Selector correct?

Assuming that I will need only I2S, what should I do/check to get LOCK with current configuration?

Thank you

Hi Russ and Brian

I’ve just fitted your new HD and HDBP to my B3 and just wanted to say how happy I am with the results.

A nice step up from the original HD and HDBP which really lifts the sound to new levels of clarity and refinement IMHO.

Thanks for the work put in and if I may thanks also to the Beta testers without whom these great products would still be in the test stage.

Here's seconding what Shoom said. We have coversed via another forum and are in agreement that the new Placids are a significant upgrade, thanks Russ and Brian.

Unlike Shoom I have only updated the BPHD since my case has no room for the HD as well, I am still running the original Placid. My guess is that the improved Placids are less significant on the Buffalo than on the Legato since the Buffalo already has the latest Tridents.

Please don't disagree or I will have to build a new case!!!
