Very easy. Just find and wire the PCM/DSD signals and a 5-7.5 power supply. Just make sure the format is correct for the target DAC.

Cut a small square hole and drill a couple holes in the back panel and you have a modded player.

Question ... Jitter performance of the module?
Superb.

I posted some numbers here:

Much better than any of the current TTL isolator parts do.

I am hand building the prototypes and the first batch. After that, I will be producing them in much larger quantities. This will be a staple kit.

Ok dumb question fellas.

I just want to build the Buffalo III to accept USB from my Mac mini. So I take it I need:

1) The Buffalo III + Trident, PS, etc...
2) Analog output stage of choice + PS (IVY, Legato, tube, etc...)
3) The New USB Receiver that Russ is working on

and do I need this 'Teleporter' or even a 'SPDIF module' if I am only going to have ONE input and that is USB?

Thanks,
Anand.

If you are putting them all in the same box, you do not need a Teleporter.

One can still be used with the USB module's lvds output, in order to gain isolation from the computer, but it is not required.

So I only need to take the signal & ground from RCA ouput of the CD transport connect to the new module and a 5-7.5 positive power supply & the same at the BIII?

No, that would be S/PDIF output. This module is for PCM (I2S) and DSD. It would work with S/PDIF, but there is no real need for it.

So I have to take I2S from my CD transport & don't care about cable lenght, wow that's a very good advantatge because previously all I2S connexions was maximum 10 cm or so due that this kind of connexion was intended for use inside the same chassis, I look for my CEC TL1-X schematics to mod & have an I2S output (that was a very good upgrade, always I want to have an I2S connexion but never do it because I need more than 10cm of cable lenght), how many time do you think the modules will be available, thanks Russ & Brian to do this kind orf magic things for the DIY community.
