One could theoretically use a separate spdif dac for each channel pair? Like a FIIO d03k ?
Would just need the i2s out of the sharc converted..can it be done?
As for the Buffallo, I'm just not sure what components one would need....power supplies/output stages etc...do the kits come with all the components soldered?
This is what I assume:
Buffalo-III 8-Channel DAC
(1) Buffalo-III 8-Channel DAC Module (Assembled and Tested)
(1) AVCC Dual Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
(2) Trident 3.3V Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
(1) Trident 1.2V Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
$379 USD (Sold Out)
S/PDIF (WM8804) Receiver Module (Assembled and Tested) $75.00 USD (may not be needed if going i2s from sharc)
IVY-III Kit + One Placid HD BP Kit Combo (not sure how many of these)
 IVY-III Kit
 Placid HD BP Power Supply Kit
So thats about $625...is this right? How many IVY-III Kits needed?
So many questions!
