Hi,

after reading through the BIIIse-Pro thread I got some questions about the new tridents-sr.
1: Would the tridents-sr/avcc-sr be also of benefit for the BIIIse (ES9018) with latest trident/avcc (shunt version). Or is this only true for ES9028/9038?

2: Should the voltage also be set up to 3.3/3.3/1.3 trident and 3.6 avcc?

Regards

Branko

1 - Absolutely! In fact I tested first with the ES9018.

2 - Yes - that scheme works well with that DAC as well.

Cheers!

I've got a BUFFALO III (non SE) that I finally had the time to put together. Left channel has distortion, especially noticable in a certain high-ish range. Otherwise fine. Any ideas what it could be?

It's hard to say - what output stage?

The first thought is that it is possibly a dead/damaged AVCC module? If you have a very old AVCC module I would highly recommend updating to the AVCC_SR.

Cheers!

I'm using the original IVY. It is OK because if I put a BII back on there, it's distortion-free.

I tried replacing the AVCC from another BIII and it doesn't seem to help. Tried another source (both original OPUS). Anything else I can try swapping out?

Hmmm - it's starting to sound like the ES9018 itself... Are you using stock firmware etc?

That's kind of a bummer. I haven't done any flashing of any kind so It should be. Are you referring to the ESS chip itself or the bios chip that can be popped out?.
