Hey Russ, just wondering how you going with XMOS module?
Funny you should ask. very well actually.
Yesterday I was hacking up a prototype based on some stuff XMOS sent me to play with. I am able to get it working, but It still needs some attention.
I am going to be focusing on that module very hard over the next few weeks.
You writing your own drivers? I looked at that while ago with the XMOS, but figured it would swallow a big chunk of my life, so bought a Hiface instead!
No, not writing my own. Using the stock drivers on my macbook pro right now.
I have also used the driver XMOS provides for windows. Both work just fine.
To get higher than 192khz via USB audio I will likely need to do some customization of the driver.
For now I have played signals up to 384khz directly from USB storage. But, I have not perfected this yet.
My hope is to be able to make the board work both as a host controller with USB storage and as a USB audio device. We shall see...
I guess the USB/SPDIF(I2S?) board might be even a bigger success than the Buffalo II, so you'd better be prepared for that, I hope I won't need to stay awake all night again.
Please Russ, show it the kids...
Who said anything about S/PDIF? I thought the module was for the Buffalo DAC.
Ok, I was thinking about getting something like an Arduino/AC2 to connect a display, set the Mux & Otto to the right settings using fi. a five position switch and control volume with a rotary control and/or IR input. And perhaps even create a 12V trigger for my amp.The OTTO will work, and there is something else I am working on too, but it is too early to talk about it.
