lots of theory but i get this impression : not much practice!
it's one thing to read and read, and another thing to try.
have you listened to music from oversampled digital signal? compared to non-oversamped? why do you think nos is popular?
the way you wrote about using pll to recover clock is like it's perfect. cs8412/4 has one, so is dir9001. dir9001 is supposed to be really good but when you go the i2s route, we are seeing a whole quantum leap of improvement.
pll or not, until we figure a way to recover clock and data properly from spdif, i2s is still by far the much better option.
sorry if your post is not generating much interest here.
Well Altmann Attraction DAC is way over priced just like everything else you lot sell, where you design something with the intention of making something that half does the job forcing humans to buy other stuff only to find they need something else and so and so......
if you find the stuffs we sell expensive, well there is no reason for you to buy anything from us. it's your money, it's your choice.
clearly the altmann has some circuitry in it which you are having a hard time trying to figure out how it's done. and he has his justification for charging at his price. you may not agree with him or like his products but take your issue with them, not us.
it's one thing to diy for your personal pleasure and another to build to sell. and by the prices i charge, i can't even feed myself.
You know the video I sent, you don't wanna know how many hours I spent doing that:) do you relize how phsyic I am, what you see in that video I sent you I was built to do that, that is what I am good at, I am not good at doing this audio stuff, but if I wanna do the sweep thing better I gotta try and learn how do this audio stuff lol
That's the thing charles did it a long time ago with spdif, why do you think he has not even built nothing else in years.. and you are still building stuff.
I think your stuff is price not to bad, but your limiting people to what can really be done.
No I can only just feed myself not you..
