pity
but youll come up with something
in the meantime:
the buffalo sounds excellent despite os.
BUT the sound varied very much with gnd scheme and after I replaced the onboard LM317 regulators on the double psu for the buffalo with LT1085 the sound took a turn towards sweeter and more nos like
will do same on ivy where 317 is replaced by lt 1085 and 337 by lt1033.
thats it for now

Colony Hotel Miami Beach calling Cool
I use the original psus that deliver +/- 15 to the Ivy and the 6,0 and 6,6 to the dac.
I did not get fifnished with grounding scheme but it was dead quiet but had sonic dropouts due to gnd loops.
Acc to TP guys I will connect all gnd between the psu outs (the minus on the dac supply and the gnd on the Ivy supply)together and the DD usb pcb that only gets 11vdc will also be connected to the other psus by the gnd terminal.NO gnd between dac and usb card I2S out.
this way all should be well
if problems Ill check this page L8R 2 day

the funny thing about this dac is that I noticed details in the hights,that I never knew existed! Happy
this despite that the hd650 is only driven by a vintage Pioneer integrated from the early eighties
extreme resolution all over the spectrum

no tips needed; very straightforward
if you stack Buffalo on top of Ivy to have access to the Ivy dip-switches its smart to connect inputs from B.,outputs and  psu connections on Ivy BEFORE you mount the Buffalo on top.otherwise youll have difficulties.
also take into account signal cable lenght between the cards so you can "flip" them apart(as if theyre hinged in one end), even though they are connected with wires,for possible future access needs.
ref .support its no problem firing up Ivy w/o anything connected to outputs as "load"(e.g.for testing purposes)
I went for scheme 1 in Ivy manual but R 17-20 are replaced by jumpers(0 ohm resistors) and youre supplied with C 13-16:THE MANUAL IS NOT UPDATED ON THIS.
also with usb in all dipswitches are in "-" position
DDs usb card worked just fine.
good luck

by the way
why are we obsessed with firewire to i2s ?
the bottleneck of the usb 2.0 is obviously not the cable but the chip and the driver.(if I understood right)
once usb 3.0 is released we will probaly have a usb 3.0 i2s bus soon.mentioned this for DD and he was not unwilling to make a new adapted usb pcb for the usb 3.0  std once it was released.
the beauty of the usb std is the "autorecognition" feature once you hook up a new device.has firewire this as well?
OR?

hello P
I know how to connect but Im not sure Ill make it in time.
Dont you lack a common star ground in your drawing? to chassis even?
only difference in my place is that I will use Doede Doumas USB pcb to start with and it needs a separate psu thats almost completed.
Status:buff and ivy are connected together
psus  to BUFF and Ivy are not
x-formers to psu are connected and delivering
usb to Buff is not
ivy to output is not.
need a couple of hours more to complete.
PUHHH
 Happy unhappy Happy

Hello
Im struggling with time since Im leaving 4 x-mas holiday on friday morning.
Im finished soldering the Buffalo + IVY + the 2 psus.Whats missing is making the regulator for the DD USB pcb and hooking up the wires between pcbs and the output rca connectors.All is put in a previously used Hammond chassis just 4 testing purposes.
Maybe Ill test thursday evening.Tomorrow Im attending a heart starter medical training course since Im a volunteer in a Norwegian naval rescue-organisation.Theyre pushing ahead to make me head of one of the watch-crews.
Time is indeed a scarce commodity!
