I added myself, too (for one). What I do not understand: Do we get a mail regarding payment, or how shall we do it?

Oh, and I intend to use this with a Buffalo-II. I am a noob, so I only can guess, that that will work? I mean, I have to connect it to the I2S and all is fine? (Sorry for stupid question ;-))

I received the board today, thank you!

I have issues implementing the board with my Buffalo II, and I am curious if anyone has any suggestions. I have the older 80Mhz clock version of the Buffalo II, and use a Volumite. I run OSX Lion on a hackintosh as my source.

I hooked up the Amanero to the Buffalo II with about 8 inches of CAT5 cable, using three sets of twisted pairs, with the white cables soldered to ground, and the colored cables from Amanero to Buffalo- DATA to D2, FSCLK to D1, BCLK to DCLK.

It works, with the ground connected or not connected, but I get an annoying high pitched noise that is constant. I also get what sound like very quick dropouts, short stutters that seem to have no discernable pattern.

Any suggestions? Has anyone had success with this board and the 80Mhz Buffalo II? Do I have to unhook the USB power supply and hook the Amanero up to the 5 volt supply on my Buffalo?

I have an Otto II i2s switcher that I haven't tried yet, perhaps that will magically get rid of the noise. I have been considering getting the Transporter to use with my hacked SACD player with a DSD output, perhaps the transporter would solve the noise problem? There is also different firmware available from Twisted Pear, perhaps that is all I need?

Thank you for your time and help.
Aaron.

This might be an obvious one, but did you switch the little switch off for SPDIF on the BII? It's a miniature toggle switch behind the digital input. I2S usually doesn't work if that switch is set to SPDIF.

Cheers,
Owen

Yeah, the switch is set for i2s. Otherwise, I wouldn't get sound at all, but I do get sound, and I also get a high pitched noise as well. I'm not sure that I have everything set up optimally. Hopefully someone will have a suggestion.

Wasn't the recommended maximum I2S wires length 10cm (4")? if so, 8" sounds like a bit too much.

what samplerates are you trying to play? also try loosening DPLL bandwidth settings on BII. 8" is a bit long, but I wouldnt have thought it would be enough to make it unusable. unlock issues with some sources were common with early firmware, also try as low tech as it sounds, to let the system warm up for 30 mins or so.

the OTTO wont help

This certainly looks interesting. Is there any reasonably simple way to turn that I2S into SDIF-2 to feed my dCS 972/955 inputs?
