Tapping into the I2S made an astounding difference. The Buffalo DAC in concert with the digital processing capabilities of the DEQX is simply astounding. Unfortunately, running I2S any real distance is extremely problematic - particularly at higher bitrates. Hopefully, the Teleporter is the answer to my prayers :-)
Sounds like it's just what the doctor ordered...

What would be the maximum I2S cable length you can use between Metronome and B2/3 ?

I have successfully tested up to 100ft.

In the Buffalo integration guide it states:

Quote:
 Keep I2S cables as short as possible, for high resolution sound one should keep them at least below
4 (10cm) and of equal length.

There are no absolutes. It depends heavily on the environment (EMI, RFI, wiring, proximity to power lines, etc). Shorter is better. They can longer until they stop working or become polluted with noise.

The Teleporter uses differential transmission and I seem to remember that Russ said that it worked nicely with a 30m spool of cable
