Cronus - It's about time.
Default MiniDsp USBSTREAMER - lock problems.

The MiniDSP USBStreamer has a LOT of jitter on its I2S outputs.
Try turning off oversampling on the Buffallo III. Perversely , This worked for me.

I also have another setup with a MiniDSP USBStreamer outputting 8 channels isolated and synchronously clocked.
But it requires some surgery on the board.

I intend to replace my current isolator/re clocker lash up with BBB-Hermes and Cronus as soon as I have time.

Will post the details in you new thread if you are interested (?).

If you want a bit perfect USB solution then you could get the Hermes-Amanero + Cronus.

Hi Russ,

But is the Hermes-Amanero+Cronus solution, multichannel?

Regards
Marco

Thanks for the advise, curiosly, I was arrived to this some hours ago; so now it works ...

However exactly like you say the USBSTreamer interface has some problems and limitations.

This way I am interested to alternative solutions ...

For start I am waiting the Rigisystems USBPal that seems be a better solution.

I will read for sure your work ...

Thanks and regards

Marco

I am not familiar with the USBSTreamer - but if you can get access to the master clock you could actually devise a way to make it work with Cronus. PM me if you interested to try it.

Is there any interest in a Cronus/B3 to Teleporter adapter?

You would use one at the Cronus with a teleporter connected to J2, and another connected to a B3 with teleporter connected to J3. In this situation the Cronus powers it's teleporter - and the B3 powers it's teleporter (both with 5V)

For those not using B3 you would just use the one at the cronus and then just direct wire the teleporter to the DAC.

The adapter is wired to transmit MCK, DCK, D1, D2 from cronus.

Using Teleporters is one of the options I have been considering. I thought you could just hook up the I2S wires but if an adapter makes it easier I would certainly be interested.

I've been thinking more and more about a pair of teleporters; this certainly solves my "where to fit all this in my existing enclosure" dilemma. Plus, it would allow the BBB-TP appliance more flexibility. An adaptor board that keeps the i2s lines as short as possible seems ideal.

Russ,
Would this adapter work with the switch you mentioned earlier? I would like to run both an Amanero USB and the BBB to the Teleporter.
