Do not think so as we do not have to alter it to use it.

Just received my BOT-1 and looking forward to hooking it up and ripping all my CDs into my BDP-2.  The BOT-1 comes with a USB Y cable.  No mention in the manual.  My understanding is that this type of cable is used to provide extra power to a USB device.  Isn't the BOT-1 powered by the wall wart?  Just a little confused.  Thanks.

Hi

Yes please ignore the USB with the red pigtail end - it is meant to supply more power but with the wall wart not required.

Can the BOT rip SACDs, and have the info saved as .dsf files on an internal disk in a BDP-2?

HI

No just CD's at this point.  It is  DVD BluRay drive so we will be adding features in the future but I do not believe Sony allows access to SACD bit streams.

This has been mentioned before (i.e. new features); I am very curious what that might entail. SACD will never happen, as you mention above. But even DVD and/or BD ripping is a challenge, from a legal standpoint. Some countries have fair use laws that would allow this, but neither the US nor Canada are one of these countries.

Direct DVD Video/Audio and BD audio playback would be interesting, using the MM UI to control playback, even without a display connected, if you can acquire the chapter titles and present them as a list of tracks, auto-selecting the mandatory 2-channel PCM track required by those formats. I have a BD player and an LCD panel in my head-fi stack just for this purpose and I would love to get rid of it.

Could be very cool if it's done right... anyway, anxious to see what's next with the BOT-1.

We are thinking of including a separate matching power supply for the BOT

perhaps you could design brackets similar to the rack ears that mount from underneath the BOT-1, BCU-1, BPS-3 etc to tie 2 or 3 units together ?

just a thought ...  :o

Will this power supply come together with the BOT-1 in the same package?

BTW, will the BOT-1 connect to a BDP-2 via a regular USB cable?
(So that we can try using more expensive cables to see how that will improve teh quality.)

Hi

It will be an optional outboard unit rather than the wallwart which comes with the BOT.  To large to include in the BOT.

Yes it just comes with a standard USB cable so you can certainly experiment with exotic cables if you wish.
