Default Buffalo Sale Announcements

I receive a lot of emails asking when the next batch of Buffalos will be available.

I have therefore created a new thread in our support forum here:
Buffalo Sale Announcement Thread - News - Twisted Pear Audio Support

If you would like to be notified before a batch goes on sale, follow the directions in my post and you will receive an email when I post a new sale date.

I think the HiFiduino blog just provided a fairly convincing proof that at a minimum you should provide some shielding to the dac board. There was a significant difference in unlocks when comparing the shielded/cased dac versus unshielded/uncased dac. Here's the link to the most recent post:

For more background info you should read the previous posts as well.

You should preface that is for one person in one environment. The degree to which you need to worry about it will depend greatly on your surroundings.

I don't have much of anything in metal enclosures, and I do not have any such issues.

That is why I said it really just depends on the individual environment. I would say if you can use a metal enclosure, if you can't don't sweat it, there are other ways to prevent issues.

Neb001 thanks for the comment and the link, looks like lots of interesting info on that site.

Russ, thanks for clarifying things. I just didn't know how emi/rfi would show themselves if they were a problem.

You can use detectors to find EMI/RF sources if you know a serious HAM radio buff they may have one for you to borrow.

Poor me I ordered but when paying I got a message from Paypal that I got to be verfied because I have payed to much with Paypal.

That will take some days.

Is there not another way to pay ? You do not take credit card ?
