Hi Marcin,

 

Do you see any SQ benefit from doing the same tweak to XE card like you did with the FEMTO from firmware upgrade to version 2? 

In other words, only one usb port is active instead of two? 

 

Cheers. 

Chanh.  

Hi Chanh, 

 

I do not have access to firmware, so this option is not available. I will see if it's possible in the future. 

 

How do you like the card? 

 

Best regards,

Marcin

Thanks Marcin. I have received the XE card. Pretty much still in the anti-static bag, remains sealed. Currently in the process of finalize my Linear power supplies for the AudioPC. Should be able to test soon and will report back. I have couple mates in AU informed me that they've placed the order. Currently waiting for June.....  :)

NEXT BATCH UPDATE

 

I'm afraid I have unfortunate news. 

 

I've just received an email from Digi-key regarding availability of the OCXO oscillator we use on the USB Card XE. The original shipping date when we placed the order was June, 6th. Now the date is June 30, 2020, with an additional, approximate 6 business days transit from the manufacturer to Digi-Key.

 

The SiT5711 is popular and SiTime has not been able to get ahead of the demand. Regardless, we are pushing to get the oscillators sooner, but it seems that the USB Cards XE will not ship sooner than in July.  

 

I know this is disappointing, but there is very little we can do. 

 

I will keep you updated. 

 

On the bright side:

 

 

Sorry I ordered already and canceled 3 days ago cause of my already great sounding server but I heard it at a friends server and it’s a musthave….

 

 

Best regards,

Marcin

Hi John, 

 

Not yet. The OCXO delivery has been delayed again, but we had a call with the manufacturer and there is a chance we will get the oscillators this week. 

 
I will post an update once I have sth definitive.

The manufacturer of the OCXO (SiTime) delayed the delivery again from July 8 to July 30, but after a conference call with them we managed to expedite the delivery to this week. Once we receive the oscillators, we will start the assembly. Hopefully we will be ship the orders by the end of July. 

 

I wish I could give you better news, so you could enjoy the cards sooner.
