I see no reason why Teradak could in the future provide a board without a clock for those of us with a high quality spidf input, be it cdp, or exteral reclocker etc, the choice would be the provided at purchase. Or for that matter 12s input, though that would require a new chasis design.
My little dream board would be no more than the pulse transformer and a tried-n-true DIR9001 (with the Valab established mod already done) and the associated components necessary to complete the circuit. All the USB stuff could be omitted. If that suddenly materialized I'd buy a Chameleon in a heartbeat. I won't hold my breath.
Does Michael monitor this thread? I know he's made revisions using some of the great mod ideas you guys have pioneered in this thread. I assumed it was because some of you keep in contact with him.
