It would be nice to hear a couple reviews of the I2s sound quality as compared to s/pdif.

Yes, itīs really. Direct connexion Amanero-Buffalo swap DSD channels over PCM. In other hand of things, I modified your Hifiduino code. Now, when detect DSD signal, automatically change to specific input in order to load correct configuration. Also, if the selected input is DSD, and PCM signal is detected, automatically switches to the correct input.

My solution is to swap PCM channels in the player. I use Foobar, and is not posible software swap for DSD channels.
I used a PCM left/right track and converted to DSD with the foobar sacd plug-in and was able to swap the channels with the "custom channel mapping"

Thanks, I'm aware of the general opinion. Was just hoping to get some reports on this specific module.

I tried swap DSD channles of the foo-dsd-asio in Asio Virtual Device Editor but donīt work. Changes no take effect.

This is the reason to swap PCM channels. And of course, swap RCA or XLR audio connectors.

I am using amanero to signal with I2S a sabre 9018 board. I succesfully installed the latest firmware using Jesper.
Some strange things noticed though when auditioning with Foobar 2000.

1. When in kernel streaming on 32bit channels (menaning L,R audio channels)are inverted!! switch to 24 bit.. channels ok!

2.When in wasapi (event or pushed mode either) the opposite applies; 32bit channels ok... 24bit channels inverted!!!

3.Also when in Kernel Streaming (which generally speaking I prefer) after the first playback the driver option dissapears from foobar/output settings even though the device is playing as normal. Amanero KS dissapears from the selection panel to appear again only when OS is restarted!!

Anyone else noticed something like this?

I unistalled - reinstalled several times the device. Always the same...

I managed to get correct channel distribution straight with absolutely no mods when using ASIO4ALL though.
That tells me there could be a problem with Amanero win7 drivers.

Any thoughts?

And another question; has anyone tried to signal a 7.1 adjusted sabre using Amanero for multichannel use?
