I primily listen through USB from my MAC (lossless files with DAC settings at 24/176). On occasion I will also play through an Apple Airport Express (I use an older model because there is too much jitter for the 10ES2 with the new model Airport Express). Would DI-2014 help with the optical input jitter?
How do you know there is more jitter with the newer Airport Express'?

I left 100USD at home to pay expenses to DHL, they didn't have change about (3 dollars) so I'm not getting it today  :mad: lolol

post #4027 of 4088

Why didn't you let them keep the change if it was 3 bucks?

post #4028 of 4088

Because I didn't anticipate that something like this was going to happen, I wasn't at home .

post #4029 of 4088

Ooooh, yeah, sorry :( Sucks though.

Hoping somebody can give me some guidance.

 

I have a Sonos hooked up to a North Star Design DAC 192 MK1. I just learned from some research that the Sonos has considerable jitter at the output that can be cleaned up by a reclocker. I have been looking at the syncro-mesh and the Wyred4sound remedy reclocker and finally found the new audio-gd DI. 

 

I am hoping to use the I2S output from the Audio-gd DI to feed my NSD DAC 192 input. I am a little lite on the pin-outs on the two system matching so hoping for some guidance.

 

Here is the pinout for the audio-gd from the website.

I2S output define:
      3.3V level ,  we can't guarantee the I2S output can cooperate with all I2S input devices.
      The I2S transmit want to take care the transmit cable .  

Pin 1 : SDATA
Pin 3 : LRCK
Pin 5 : SCLK
Pin 7 : MCLK
Pin 2,4,6,8 GND

 

Here is the pinout from another post on head-fi

The pinout is as follows:

I2S
I2s Data
Serial Bit Clock
Left/Right Word Clock
Master Clock

CAT5
Brown / Brown-White
Green / Green-White
Blue / Blue-White
Orange / Orange-White

RJ45
8 - Serial Bit Clock (64fs)
7 - Serial Bit Clock Ground
6 - I2S Data
5 - I2S Data Ground
4 - Left/Right Word Clock (fs)
3 - Left/Right Word Clock Ground
2 - Master Clock (256fs)
1 - Master Clock Ground

 

I also read the the NSD 192 only works with 24/192 signal that I am not sure is configurable on the audio-gd DI so I might be out of luck but was hoping someone might chime in.

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

The DI wont up-sample (only the old Reference 3 did that) so if you require 192k input, you'll have to have your music player on your computer do the up-sampling, or the Sonos, if it has such a feature.

Received it.... took me a while to make it work......and was too late to listen to music....but the unit seems to work fine....

I'll come back later on to give my impressions...... Improvement from DI first generation is that I may now read 24/192 files....

Can't talk now about the sound....but I trust Kingwa when he says that PSU is the biggest challenge in Audio....So this unit should make a change....

Thanks for the info on the DI 3 doing up sampling but no the new DI. Looks like even if I made the pinouts match that I could not get the sonos to do the 24/192 that would be needed for the I2s input. It looks like a very nice unit and I look forward to seeing the reviews on it. I could still use it with the spdif or toslink.

You really need to send Kingwa this question
