What about an usb interface like this one: http://jlsounds.com/i2soverusb.html
It could be "easily" integrated and powered by class A amp on board Master 7 and connected to I2S connection inside of it.
actually I would love to see 'audiophile' and cost no object digital implementation, i.e. like R-core.
the clock don't seem to be covered or a Oven control clock or a femto clock.
Hope the chasis is also a rugged and thick like the reference series.
I think that Audio GD doing a USB Digital Interface is a good idea! The Offramp, as good as it sound to me is not exactly cheap and in my opinion Master 7 deserves a really good transport. A digital interface that convert to I2S at a lower price when the Offramp would have been at the top of me list if not already bought the Offramp. Now I will wait and see. I of cause don’t know how it will sound or what it will cost, but are confident it will not be priced as high as the Offramp and be better than the implemented USB 32.
You never know, kingwa might have been looking here at the OR5, and coming out with the DI again to match it. Who knows, it might even have an direct I2S input.
Release date could traditionally be 1st july. My POV, he is likely to offer discount or new products during july, or chinese new year period.
so you think there will be some new options for the Master 7, like the HDMI I2s input etc...
Does Kingwa often offer discounts in July?
What kind of other new products do you think he might come up with?
So you think it will not have a box or something like that.
Do you see a chance that there will be a HDMI I2s board for the M7 made by kingwa?
What HDMI I2s boards are currently on the market?
