Chamaleon DAC Capable of playing 192 Mhz music files.Humm, I couldn't get the bypass to work, tried soldering direct to pin 4 with no green lock. Perhaps you have to jump pin 2 to 4 leaving the 75 ohm resistor in play. I'm done playing with Spdif.
Wood - Steve Nugent prefers surface mount caps when loading a digital circuit. What works and what is optimum is probably best left for the experts when is comes to digital transmission. I would continue to use the stock 75 ohm surface mount resistor unless proven otherwise. Myself I am not further pursuing Spdif input as I will have Steve properly terminate an I2S input from the Pace Car to the Chameleon when he adds an OEM I2S version of the M2 Tech Hi-Face interface to my Pace Car. This will allow me to jitter correct every file from 44.1 Mhz to 192 Mhz via my SSD Mac Mini USB source.
Right now the Pace Car is limited to 96 Mhz just like the Chameleon is via the USB input. However according to Michael the Chameleon is limited to 96 Mhz via Spdif input only because of the of the pulse transformer. Add one of those Scientific Conversion 192 Mhz transformers and theoretically the Chameleon could play 192 files as the Phillips TDA 1543 & Wolfson WM8804 Spdif receiver chip are both capable of this frequency... At least in theory.
