Hi Dan! Funny I've just sent you an email about the buffer.
From my perspective I thought I'd need something simple but because nothing stay simple long enough in my setup I would need more I/O.
2 XLR inputs, one RCA input and one XLR output.
This for: Modwright BDP83SE (you know the one) still running, LKS MH-DA004, Sony TA-ZH1ES => Denon AVP-A1HD Cinemike XLR unique input.
It would help group all source in the XLR input on the Denon.
Do you think this is doable ?
Also funny you say you got tired of the squeeze box. I listened to a Kennerton Thror at a friend's using a Squeeze (not Modwright). Nice Auris DAC and amp. I found the sound a bit arsh.
Not how I listened to Thror before.
Got myself a B-Stock Thror. My friend came to my house to give it a try : custom mod PC with SOtM cards, modded PSU, damping, filters, some Audio Magic stuff, OPPO HA-1 SE (Audiocom modded plus extras), TRYST (of course), not the same same headphone at all.
We concluded that the Squeeze is not good enough anymore and replaced it by another kind of setup based on ROON and pc sources. The Squeeze was indeed the weak link.
Have you ever considered using a tweaked PC with Audirvana (you have a two station licence I sent you) or JRiver?
