Thanks for posting - I'll look forward to watching the videos.

That said, it would behoove Darko either to get a better proof reader or to take more care to get the details right first time:

Quote:The forthcoming Core Infinity board will replace both the Duet and Wi-Fi board in the Expert Pro to offer 1Ghz Quadcore ARM processor, 1Gb DD3 RAM, 4Gb flash memory, Gigabit Ethernet, 2.4Ghz/5Ghz, Bluetooth module, Apple Airplay chip, bi-directional USB port, Analog Devices SHARC chip for audio DSP and FPGA for data marshalling.
  • it's GHz, not Ghz (the unit is named after Heinrich Hertz)
  • it's DDR3 RAM, not DD3 RAM
  • is it really 1 Gbit RAM and 4 Gbit flash, or (more likely) 1 GByte RAM and 4 GByte flash?
  • all USB ports are inherently bi-directional (what he means is that it can be an audio input or output)
Maybe it is just me being overly pedantic (and/or having a grumpy afternoon), but credibility just ebbs away when this kind of stuff is wrong.

Ian,
Quite right too, a bad afternoon not required to comment on a poorly edited piece.

Interesting photo’s though.

Cheers,
Bill.

Excellent! It’s great to see some of the technology involved in making the CI board. Mind boggling actually, for me.
It gives me even more pride in ownership of these groundbreaking bits of kit.

Absolutely interesting! One thing I noted; The Audinate chip is not mounted on the CI production board unfortunately. That means Devialet has given up Dante integration on the ethernet input, for now at least.
