post #1 of 258
Thread Starter 

Just came across this on FB a few minutes ago....looks like the SR-71B with an integrated USB DAC.  Looking forward to more details...

Am I right to think this looks like an updated predator?

I was hoping for a USB dac 24/192 from ray for my computer rig with active speakers.
Not sure if this is the ideal use for the intruder.

Was really expecting/hoping for a dac companion to the sr71b.

Not a competitor to the CLAS (presumably) given lack of apple certification.

Does the Intruder interwork with the (Linux) Android-powered smartphone Samsung Galaxy S III?

 

The Galaxy S III can interwork with the Predator:

Wow, I never knew that. That's cool.

Don't know much about intruder specs yet...

I'm not familiar with the 4-pin balanced output connector. Do you need special cabling or can you get away with a simple adapter?

I've got a balanced Hifiman adapter just looking for a balanced amp to plug into. smile.gif

You have the + from each signal and the -. All you need is the 4 wires from the balanced output and then have it wired correctly to the 4 pin connector that the RSA amp uses. It is very simple and straightforward. The connector holds up extremely well.

I just came across the news on the RSA website and immediately checked head-fi for more information. regular_smile%20.gif

 

If this is similar to the R71B with a high quality dac integrated into one nice package I'd be really tempted to buy it. I'm also wondering if there are any lower introduction prices.

In this case, do you bypass the internal S3's DAC ?

Yes, the internal DAC of the S3 is bypassing:
