It can do 192 kHz 24 bit over fiber because I managed to find optical transmitters with 25 MHz bandwidth. If your receiving end has similar (I just retrofitted my DAC), this works.foresto wrote:Since this little wonder can apparently handle 24 bits and a 192 kHz sample rate, I wonder: Can it pass through high def audio bitstreams like DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD?
Hi Jörg, success comes with all sorts of problems, a jolly good product.[IDC]Dragon wrote:Sorry folks, I’m sold out for the B+ kind, have only a few rev. B boards left.

Me too, I have to reconsider how to proceed with this too successful project, don’t have the time for all the soldering and the emails. Either pass it to some professional, or making it a public design, or just stop it. Anyway, I'm not able to do anything before march.
Send me a PM with your email if I shall add you to a waiting/notification list. Meanwhile I recommend the Hifiberry Digi board, it is a commercial product you can buy. (Although people tell me they prefer my board because it doesn't add height, slim enough to fit in a standard case.) It is compatible, a parallel development of which I didn't know while I was designing mine, but I later took advantage of the existing drivers for it.
If you trust Wikipedia as a reference: Unlike HDMI, TOSLINK does not have the capacity to carry the lossless versions of Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and LPCM.foresto wrote:I've been told that beyond the bandwidth issue, there's a lack of protocol support for the HD 7.1 formats on TOSLINK or coax S/PDIF. Nobody have stepped forward with references yet, but I'm starting to believe them.
Only just found this, has anyone tried one on an A+ (can't think why it wouldn't work)?[IDC]Dragon wrote:Sorry folks, I’m sold out for the B+ kind, have only a few rev. B boards left.

The B+/Pi2 model is sold out, I have only a few of the B model addons left. See the other thread:Moessi774 wrote:Just borrowed a Model B from a friend to try using the raspberry as a media center. But the only thing that stops me from buying my own one is the missing optical out. I totally love your project. Its exactly what i would need. Have you got time for one more?
Hi, Jörg,jnetode wrote:Hi, Jörg,
I received my part, but still could not get it to run. I installed Openelec 5.0.6 and followed the steps from Hifiberry (similar to yours, but remounting /flash) and it will not boot anymore.
I still have a lot to learn on linux... Keep trying.
