@Packdemon: Highly unlikely. The Element is already priced aggressively.
We have a few B-stock Elements available:
can these be configured with RCA/DAC out rather than inputs also?
Oh well, I guess that was to be expected. I mean with the product being so new, the stock being so little, and it having such a high demand. It really is going to take a while for the market and stock to reach an equilibrium. I have to say that this product has been quite successful for it's fairly young market life so far. I got to hand it to you guys at JDSLabs, you did a really great job.
Just to be sure, Stock-B only has cosmetic imperfections, nothing that is functionally an imperfection? It should function as well as the regular stock right?
BRAND NEW WITH MINOR COSMETIC IMPERFECTIONS. not yelling, copy and paste from jdslabs.
I already read that, like I said just making sure that it's not even the slightest performance hit.
Making sure in and of it's self means that I already know, but that I am still making sure as an knowingly redundant added precaution.
I wonder if there is a B-Stock for your other items that you sell, too. I haven't found any on the JDSLabs website though. Even this one for the Element I only found because you linked to it: https://www.jdslabs.com/products/158/the-element-b-stock
i need this, problem is import fees to uk will drive the price up a lot and the wait time
Thanks for that couldn't pass up the 50 dollar savings for whats probably just a few scratches.
so am i right in thinking this is a re cased objective amp + rev b odac with better nob on top?
if its identical i will purchase just for the design
No. Compare the specs:
The amp is different (no longer the objective 2 amp), but the RevB ODAC is more or less the same.
Ha, did this come from Jude's impression?
Yes, The Element shares the basic topology of O2 (voltage amplification -> attenuation -> current amplification). The chipset and power logic differ significantly. Element's DAC was designed before we moved the PCM5102A+SA9023 to ODAC RevB. Performance differs slightly between the the 2L and 4L implementations.
Pusbhbutton and opamp power logic
DC Rails: +/-12VDC
Max Power = 0.6W @ 32 ohm
Microcontroller + relay power logic
DC Rails: +/-15VDC
Max Power: 1.1W @ 32 ohm (1.5W peak)
Element turns on and off silently. O2 generates a soft click and thump. Element has a huge knob and looks great on my desk; I can't say the same about O2+ODAC.
