Run and buy folks!

I`m still waiting for a shipping confirmation (as promised on shipping week of 21 aug.) for my pre order placed on the first sale minute of 6 aug...

Keep on the good work!
But no IVYs available to order

Still on sale now.... surprising as the last stampede sold out in about a minute.

I was not planning to get the BIII as I already have a heard of BII's and B32S.
I ordered one anyway while the euro is still worth anything!
This is a moment to invest in gold or buffalo's

On the TPA site I could not find any Buffalo III firmware chip for the volumite. I hope Brian will be so kind to include one with the shipment.

I recently ordered a new multiformat player (Oppo BDP-95) and as this sports two Sabre 9018 chips I look forward to a direct comparison (and to tab the DSD/I2S signal, hehe).
Cheers,
Nic

You will not find one, as the Volumite is on-board. You do not need a stand alone Volumite with the BIII. Ask Brian to remove the Volumite if you have ordered one.

Hi
I just was thinking like you... a little earlier. I`ve already got a BDP95, and now I am waiting for my Buffalo... It could be nice to change same impressions, and hear your opinion about your player. But we have to find another thread for this subject...

Russ, I just realised that my BIII came with a firmware chip on the board, and a second firmware chip wrapped in a little bag. Are they the same?

I had programmed and packed up several Buffalos when we made a small change to the firmware. Rather then unpacking them, I simply added the updated firmware chip. If you don;t get a second chip, your Buffalo has the new version on board.

I've just uploaded the BIII guide to the TPA site. It's become a pretty big document covering most configurations. Comments welcome.

Is the AVCC shunt regulator module for BIII identical to the module used with BII?

-> Leon: Great work on the BIII manual! I hope Russ and Brian are rewarding the great work you put into this
