The plot thickens...


Sounds like you may have additional SQ improvements available when you separate the supply. I just assumed (stupid of me, I know, but I'm so good at doing it!) that you had the receive card separately powered.

Looking at the manuals for both the I2S interface and the DAC, to me they aren't totally clear and consistent on how that works, but the comments in the manuals plus the post exchange between Dave & Soundchekk made it clear to me.

And then I cheated... I looked at the picture of the RAKK DAC board and could follow the I2S and SPDIF lines coming into the board and see them go through the GI devices (optocouplers or something similar).

On the Belleson, PartsConnexion has them on sale through the end of the month. They are on back-order, but expect a shipment soon... I've already got an order in.
