The Pi 2B also has 4 USB ports.  As mentioned in Reply #99, the 4th USB port is reserved for internal connection to the optional uDSD module, so only 3 of the 4 USB ports are accessible from the back panel.

I shared the updated info over at headfi as well, although the redesigned site is such a gongshow right now.

Well it's not like you can just peel one USB off and use it internally :duh:

It was mentioned back in December that the a USB hub would be added to the back panel, so I am thinking the 3 rear USB ports on the back panel are mounted on a separate module board connected by cable to one (or three) of the RPi board mounted USB ports, leaving an internal RPi USB port to connect to the optional uDSD module?

In other words, plug and play with no modification of the RPi.

Maybe Jason can show us the internal layout and perhaps a real pic or 3

No point for you perhaps, you can buy that red color case, it is pretty nice too  :thumb:
One port is used for optional internal HD.

I will ask the staff to take photo of the "step by step" mounting of the internal layout as they assembled the first unit.

Not for this "experimental" batch. if and when we also make the case for Omnia server, we can then supply silver color case.

Sorry, one more update. 
It turns out that we need to do soldering on the Pi board to connect the hub (and uDSD DAC if you need it), therefore the NuPrime Pi-9 (unofficial model but with full warranty and support) will have to include the Raspberry Pi3 board (< $40 ?).

We will inform those who sent us the orders this week and send you the invoice. They are ready for shipping.
If you haven't heard from us by Monday that means we lost your email.

Sorry, our factory is not setup to do sales (that's why we need distributors and dealers!) and this has been taking so long.

Factory said they ordered Pi boards already and I will find out. That was the last piece of parts they need to start assembly.

Jason,

Can a monitor be hooked up to this? How do I read the HD to know which songs to play? Or...do I see all the artists/albums on my iPad, for example?

Do you have a final introductory price yet?

Regards,

Michael

I’ve moved on many weeks ago and made my own setup. Pity I was really hoping something would come of this...but time waits for no man.
