How is Buffalo 3? If you're thinking of selling it, I'm sure it has to sound decent. What kind of internal cabling did you use, and can you upload an internal picture? I'm thinking of buying the boards (new from TPA), but want to know if it's going to be worth putting more money towards a BIY solution.
I have a v1.0 Opus with the old v1.0 CS8416 S/PDIF reciever, and this combo was rather underwhelming the eons ago that I bought it. I recently cased it up in a pretty Hifi2000 case and added an IVY-III output stage in hopes of reviving it, but no dice so far. I think the old boards might be showing their age. If it's worth it, Buffalo 3 might just be what this project needs since it'll drop straight in. I'd still like a balanced DAC to experiment with in addition to my Concero. Thanks for any input.
Just saw your FS ad. What power button did you use, and will it mount to a 10mm thick panel? I've been looking all over for one of those!
