Yeah, I figured I wouldn't be getting the $155 I paid for it lol!
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

$30 shipping

 

Broken down

$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

$30 shipping

 

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

I have time warner which I think is with AT&T?

 

 

Welcome back~

 

 

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.

bowei is in charge of project management, I'm doing the technical part only.

 

Case:

You can never go wrong with black ^^

I am looking at Saber DAC's or just really well intergrated ones. How well the CS4398 is intergrated also makes a difference and what it is doing. For us, we can't measure that so we can't tell.(borisu doesn't have equipment to get "real" measurements)

 

And if that doesn't work then I may not even get another DAC

 

I'll pit the Project H up to my Audio gd NFB 12.1 If the Project H wins (i'll do DAC testing and amp testing and combined) I'll just sell the Audio gd and use the money for headphones :)

Excellent summary bowei! Arigatou!
Also, I will probably be using my iPod classic with the O2 a good majority of the time since I generally don't listen from a computer, but having the option will be nice.
And the iPod has a cirrus logic dac as well and beats out a lot of $1000 cd players nicely smily_headphones1.gif
Although I'm not sure how freakin hard it is to put a good dac in a cd player, I mean FFS the cd player my mom gave me which is "Bottom of the TOTL" and retailed for like $200 back in the late 80s/early 90s sounds just fine to me. All my A/B comparisons have came back so close it doesn't matter...
Also, I'll be sending you the money very soon borisu.

It really depends but not really, sound comming out of most $1000 SACD players will still blow an iPod away. The iPhone 4S and the iPod 5G and other old Wolfson ones have the best sound overall in the Apple series of things.

Meh, the classic is pretty good too.
And the 5g has the issue of not having a true line out...
Also, I was going to send Boris the money tonight but PayPal is being sketchy so I'll try sending it tomorrow.
Lol I had some pretty authentic Mexican food tonight for dinner, damn nachos with steak are amazing!
And chile reilinos are pretty good too!

Lol click on the link in my sig labeled "my anime list."
It isn't a kinky porn site, but rather a link to all the anime I've watched/currently watching/plan to watch.
I rate everything I watch too so you can figure out what I liked and didn't like smily_headphones1.gif

He responded, we now need to get a silkscreen template back to him for him to give us a quote on how much it would cost to silkscreen ten units, discounts for ten units and shipping.

 

 

Graphs picture I posted on facebook (shared) looks like the icchi the killer one I have above. Graph actually is more yankee looking than one may have expected.
