That's not too bad though, like I said I don't need to sell it ASAP or anything like that. H won't be done until Christmas or so right?
We(I) will try to get it done ASAP. That basically means sporting Borisu on. He's my Woz and I'm Steve Jobs remember?
You can start posting it online for sale the day Borisu starts shipping units out
Projected unit cost FOR U.S/CANADIAN people:
$158-$160 for unit itself
$15 wall wart
$86 for entirety of insides (O2, ODAC, Volume pot, Project H controller board)
$30 case (just an estimate righ tnow)
$15 per person *gift* to Borisu (imagine how long it took to solder all the boards, design the dam custom board, fit them into the cases, glue them and finally package and ship ten 5lb units.
$15 wall wart
Total is around $176
This is within expectations. Remeber, sub $200 unit. So we are fine right now.
Summary of Project H.
Inside Project-H is FULL Objective 2 amplifier. It features a Burr Brown 2134 op amp, and 4556 recommended high performance gain amps. The DAC is the Cirrus Logic recommended flagship the CS4398 used in many receivers and media streamers alike. All the switches and signals are sent to a main Project-H control board. This control board not only controls all the interface controls themselves but also combines and seperates the units. X state will have both the DAC and the O2 working together as one. Signal into DAC, then into O2 and then out headphone out. Y state will have the DAC input through USB or coax and output only through its specific DAC fixed out RCA ports and the amp, the O2 will input through another RCA input and out the headphones. It will utilize 1/4" headphone out. The case as of right now seems to be black semi gloss weighing in at 3.5lbs with a front 6mm solid alumunium bezel.
Why Project H?:
Options: It not only features some of the most coveted non snake oil parts around such as a full Objective 2 and CS4398 DAC but also has a central command board to relay switch signals and combine and seperate the units. This is done with a fully customized design from the engineer of the project, Borisu. There are two RCA pairs on the back. One for fixed DAC out, and one for amplifier line in.
Feel: With such a decision on getting these black gloss cases, one can get the look and feel of a much more expensive unit at such a low price.
Cost: An O2 would cost $170-$200 after shipping and wall adapter from most companies. Fully featured dual amp and DAC switching units are rare if non existent for most around. The DAC has been highly recommended by Kiteki for being more natural and is also used in the Marantz CD6003 player,($500 USD) Deckware ZDAC 1($875 USD),and also the Esoteric X-05 SACD player ($5000 USD, that is the right zero's). At less than $200, these units and sound will be available to the clients

Eh, half the project list prefers no order of the black knights. I'd be fine with something simple, similar to whatever shiit has. We could also just put like b10labs in the corner. JDS knockoff~. Completely unnamed would be fine for me too.
