Hi LeonB

"One" could- but I bet many present and potential customers couldn't :-)

I wasn't been in any way adversely critical. The overall approach seems highly versatile and easily implemented. And all that's needed is a simple add on single input comparator that I'm sure TP will provide in due course. I was just pointing this out to try and save Russ and Brian from any problems with buyers who hadn't realised this before purchase!

Best wishes

Paul

Not sure if i'm missing something here.. does that mean if we're using the typical usb->spdif converters like the hiface, wavelink, evo or legato, the buffalo III won't work without the 4-channel input?

Any consumer level SPDIF input will have to go through fi. a comparator to change it to TTL level. The BIII supports TTL level, I2S and DSD. The EVO offers I2S, which you could use directly. Another option is to use the Toslink module (but that limits you to 24/96).

As a side note: Let's not forget many of the existing users already have a Mux, which also offers a TTL SPDIF (or I2S) output.

@Paul: I'm already hard at work to write a new integration guide, now for the BIII. Rest assured: this will be covered.

Yes it did. I hit refresh like a million times. I wonder how many they had for sale. I only bought the one without the Trident Regulators.

Is anyone else having a problem with getting a sidecar in the cart?

Sidecar gets added as SPDIF4KIT : 4-Channel S/PDIF Input and Switch Module Kit) but it blows that the DACs were sold out in lightning speed. Guess another 3 weeks wait for me.

I think Brian mentioned that there will be a stemped every 6 hours. It is in his effort to be fair to all the time zones. So if I'm right there will be 2-3 more chances to get this one today.
I want to add sidecar and be done with purchase, but don't seem to be able to do that. Since I already have I2S source as well as SPDIF, this is a must for me...
