Hardware News   Hardware News : Troika NG Sound system
   posted by Troika on 8-Sep-2006 22:24:09 (8489 reads)
Troika NG would like to announce that we have chosen a fine industry standard AC97 codec, the AD1888 manufactured by Analog Devices, marketed under the Soundmax® brand. The sound codec is used in our Project “Prometheus"/ Amy’05.

This fine device brings many features (including AD’s special filters) used in Asus motherboards and Creative products etc.to the Amiga community.

Read more for details...





In our design we use 6 audio connectors to provide a full surround sound system: Front, Left side, Right side, Center, Surround Sound via audio jacks and an SPDIF output through a standard RCA connector. We also include an internal Intel™ HD-Audio standard header for case connections and so much more!

Some technical details: “The AD1888 is a 6 channel (supporting 5.1 surround sound) AC'97 2.3 compatible codec. It features SPDIF output, variable sample rates, 20-bit DACs, and multiple stereo analog inputs along with many cost saving features including: integrated headphone amplifiers, selectable microphone inputs with built-in preamplifiers, jack sensing (with auto-topology switching), hardware channel spreading and downmixing, as well as crystal-free operational modes.”

For more information visit
SoundMAX
PDF’s are available on the Analog Devices web site, however we have made available the PDFon our website.

Sounds good to me!

One thing I hope for; that it powers on nicely without any clicking. The
onboard sound on the A1XE (yes I have a chip on mine) gives a bit of a click
on power on and initial boot up.

Cheers,
Bean.

P.S. I hope we get to hear a little more news on the main board over the next
few weeks.

So if I'm reading this right Amy05 will have component Audio. My DVD player has this but not my amp, so I have to make do with optical instead.

They claim to have "working Amy's", but not quite finished yet, and not shown working at the BB4 for reasons I cannot fathom (unless I am incredibly cynical & wonder if they don't actually work yet).

@Wizzard_o

They didn't say they chose it just now, so it's best to wait till next week.

No, we designed and tested several sound systems. We are just releasing the details of Vers. 1.4 now.

JB, can you tell us if the "jack sensing" feature will be available under OS4. I've seen this on x86 and love it. This is where the driver detects when you have plugged something into the jack and can even give you the option of selecting the type of speaker you have plugged in (FL, Center, FR, SR, SL, or Subwoofer). That is the feature you describe, right? If so, will it be as configurable under OS4?

I hope so. It's really nice to not have to worry about where you plug the audio jacks, you just select the type of speaker you have plugged in as it detects something plugged to the jack.

Excellent question !

I can only speak hardware wise. The "jack sensing" feature is fully designed into Amy. So its one of many features Os4 can build upon.

Maybe Rogue, or Dave AE can answer from a software point of view?

Could a moderator please fix the SoundMax link? It currently says "http:// http://www.soundmax.com/" (complete with embedded space).

Yes, definitely. Are the prototypes far enough along that work on porting OS4 to them can begin yet?
