Hey there,

So, those who ordered and received the first Katana will receive the Isolator and both output stages free of charge with the new Katana?

Any updates on when those will ship out?

Thanks!

In fact , the decision was driven by customers even though it means that it will make things more complicated for us .
This is terrific. Well done, and thank you.

Many times people cover up their flawed systems by adding a bit warmth and smoothness to it. Fair enough.


Instead of covering up the flaws I'd rather like to get rid of them. That'd me my strategy in
the first place.

Enjoy.
I remember seeing some speculation about the possibility of 2nd harmonic distortion upstream acting as a cancellation signal to speakers’ own 2nd harmonic distortion. Don’t want to veer off topic too much but as far as 2nd harmonics go, there may be a reason that some people prefer electronics with them.

* First of all over here we're talking about a random noise and harmonics spectrum. - This is unwanted.
* Even if there'd be a technical reason for playing with 2nd (2nd order/even order ??)
we'd still be talking about a flawed system. You fight flaws with other flaws and by doing
so you add even more flaws and hope you'll have it all right after that. Good luck with that.
Similar issue with people who think they solve their issues be running equalizers.
Most of these folks just don't realize that they heavily mess with the signal harmonics.
And make things even worse.
* In the digital photography area things are more obvious. In the early days the results
were so bad that they wouldn't work without heavy smoothing.
On todays high quality camera chips - if trying a smoothing filter - you're just leaving it
alone. It looks awful.
And that's what I and many others experienced in audio too. The better your base system
the less you can live with artificial flaws. You rather concentrate on addressing the core flaws of the system.

However. Since everybody is in a different phase on the audiophile evolution scale, a certain tweak - even if it is a flaw on its own - might be the better compromise at that point in time.

Enjoy.

Hi cdsgames, I message to you, but your inbox full already.
In this topic, you said that as this link New FIFO buffer for RPI/SBCs
So, I think : all people that odered and get Katana 1 have 2 options :
1. Get a refund and can keep Katana V1.
2. Wait ( months or years...) and get Katana V2 and New Iso free.
May I wrong?!?

Hi Anthon


we have a few customers that have shipping costs that are almost higher than cost of Katana. So for those customers it makes no sense to send it back. If you have a distri in your country kindly send it back and we will reimburse everything.

Man, ask for refund or wait for new boards. It's simple, don't lament on every forum.
