Model S MkIII schedule

Due to increased interest in TDA1541A simultaneous data mode of operation, and associated customer demands, and in accordance with the recent commercial availability of USB decoders with I2S output, Model S continued to evolve.

MkIII version of this converter will keep one S/PDIF input, while the second S/PDIF input of previous Model S versions will be replaced by direct PCM input, able to accept either I2S or simultaneous data mode signal. This direct input will use a set of BNC connectors (three for I2S, and a fourth is required for simultaneous data mode), to pass the signal directly to the TDA1541A chip. Model S MkIII will also include small but useful improvements in the passive parts domain. Other than that it will remain the good old Audial Model S that you know for many years.

Model S MkIII will ship from June 2015.
