I built a solid-state alternative to the TPA’s Sidecar.
Its main features are:
- Switching between I2S and S/PDIF with bus switches (solid state devices).
- Support for two I2S inputs, with source selection.
- On-board LDO regulator with 4.9V output for the Buffalo III’s 4-input S/PDIF board.
- Drop-in replacement for the Sidecar.
