Default Hey...

Good news Russ, thanks!
And guys, in the past, Russ has been reluctant/unwilling to share his personal, subjective, opinions on sound quality/improvements. In this thread he has actually taken a risk in offering his personal subjective opinion, I thank him for that, but we can also see (in the responses to his opinion) why he has been reluctant to give it. Let's not badger him, and give him the third degree when he offers his subjective opinion. We would do better to thank him and just accept it for what it is is.
When we try the new AVCC regs we can also form our own subjective opinion, as it should be...

Well put Burrows
yup the best way to find out how something sounds is to listen and make our own minds up.

i'm still loving my B3 just sounds great IMHO to my ears in my system

looking forward to trying the new AVCC

thanks Russ

Russ,

Very nice product. Should be a nice upgrade as it is the most important regulator in the DAC. is it still specified for 3.3V?

I've seen photos where the leds have different brightness (including mine). Although that is not an issue, is the new design better at having equal brightness?

I'll like to order mine machine soldered (not hand soldered like in the photo :-))

Magnitude of LED brightness was not a design priority. But yes, if you operate it at 5.5 to 6V the intensity of both should be pretty close in any case.

I know your kidding, but it's actually a pretty good job of soldering for a prototype. Brian does excellent work.

It is just a bit more than 3.3V. Right around ~3.5V

Russ,
Would this new AVCC work without any compromise in BIIs and BIIIs fitted with older Tridents?

I spent quite a lot fo time the last few weeks listening to the new BUF-III SE - so keep in mind this comment will be based on that setup with Legato 3.1 driving various headphones.

Since you force me (just kidding) I will say that what I like better is what I would call a sense of control and precision. Also the background is crystal clear and clean. No noise is present accept that which was recorded.

I would say that the AVCC module is *the* single most important regulator on the Buffalo.

I am not as eloquent as others, so I hope some other folks will write better reviews.

Cheers!
Russ

It would, but I would strongly suggest updating the Tridents too.
