I’d like to experiment but at this point in time I do not have i2s devices.

It would be great if you could borrow a Direct Stream or DSJ. I2S into the Directstream is amazing.

@TLL I can get 27 the same as oppomod uses in tcxo and ocxo .

I need to order 10 pieces to get ocxo if anyone wants to make this.

10 12 weeks for delivery. I wii be ordering this week.

I will design circuit boards this week to fit both clocks.

A few people have PM me as to how I use Oppo as a streamer.

First I was using a Qnap nas with Minimsrever , Bubbleupnp server ,

Ipad with Linn Kazoo.

Kazzo looks for Rooms "openhome" servers so bubbleupnp will find

Upnp Oppo when selected you can select to make it Openhome so Kazoo can find

Oppo.

Kazoo can play Tidal .

I found Qnap and bubbleupnp very flaky, so I have an Intel Nuc Win 10 with Minimsrever , Bubbleupnp server

installed work like a dream no more problems. Hookup  Nuc Wifi cat6 to Oppo or Wifi will do.

The Intel Nuc was chosen as it has a 12v dc supply so linear power supply can be used an no internal PS.

Nuc I use is an I5 4 Gen 4Gb ram 120 Gb msolt and 2.5 3Tb. NO usb as this will degrade sound. My option only many might think differently.

@ghost4man is using same setup as me his Nuc is a Celeron 7Gen 1 min to boot  thats all other wise no difference to my I5.

Nuc can boot with Minimsrever , Bubbleupnp server if these are added to start menu. Just hit power button no monitor required to start streaming.

You can use Roon but have not tried it.

Both SSR and Oppo using I2s have improved sound stage producing depth, image, air, decay and seperation of instruments.

Spdif has none these qualities.

 

I use the VanityHD with an Oppo 103 to feed a DAC via Coax, but am very interested in adding Dr. Lee’s I2S board if possible. I wonder if the mods are mutually exclusive, or if they can both be implemented in the same unit.

@Mjay   Yes it will work fine, the ribbon cable out of Oppo main board goes to I2s board then another ribbon cable

runs to VanityHD board.

Peter,

Looking at Oppomod site, their clock upgrade requires the LPS upgrade to power it. Does yours, as well, or can it pull power from the stock SPS?  Also, does your board work with the 103, or only the 203?

 

Finally, did you hear improvement via I2S board to the Holo before upgrading the clocks, or were they installed at the same time?

 

Thanks again,

Michael

This may be a silly question, but does the Oppomod I2S board get 'true' DSD out of the Oppo? PS Audio say that their DACs only accept DSD from their transports verified by their own handshake. How does the Oppomod board handle this?

@gonefishing999 thanks Peter. So if I put an Oppomod I2S board in my UDP-203 and connect it via HDMI cable to a PS Audio DAC, will I get the full DSD experience? Is there no problem with the PS Audio 'handshake'?

 

I guess the clock upgrade can be added at a later stage?

 

Excuse my ignorance, thank for your insight.

There's a lot of posts on the PS Audio forums suggesting that it works fine

I think I've seen one picture of the i2s mod installed.

Is it easy to do? And do you have to chop a bit of the vent to fit the hdmi plug?
