Hi nice want one too in enclosure with covox and passthtough connector.

PM sent.

 

May I ask why not bigger memory upgrade?

576kB is actually a plenty of RAM.

With my current knowledge I belive the solderless 1088kB is possible, although very tricky. However, I'm not going to produce such a card in the near future if ever.

At this point I am still pricing up various RAM expansion devices and cannot make a firm commitment. However it would help me save up if I knew what I needed to aim for. Would you mind sending me a PM with the current price of the 320/576XE in case with COVOX but no ECI pass-through.. I would need it delivering to Britain if that were possible.

Another question:

 

Is there any possibility the '576k Compy Shop' mode could be added to the device at a later date or would that require physical changes to the hardware?

Are these even still available?

 

Have you heard otherwise Panther? I assum they are and many people have made orders recently in the thread above.

No, I guess I just didn't see any recent responses regarding orders. I'm sure he'll say something if he's out. I'm considering one.

Where is really Covox mapped? At $D280 (as you wrote in post before), or at $D600 (as you wrote in pdf)?

ctirad - how you see the possibility to make standalone Covox device from RAM expansion components?

Just a question, I do not know how big could be demand for that kind of device.

It makes not much sense, because my Covox implementatin is neither a simple resistor network nor 4x 8bit dac with parallel input. It uses the CPLD chip for latching of the 4 sample registers, unsigned->signed conversion, digital mixing to 2x9bit stream that is padded to 24bit stream and then streamed over I2S BUS to the true DAC chip with built-in headphone amplifier (Wolfson). The standalone implementation would save only the SRAM chip, that makes barely 1/5th of the component price.

I received a shipment today. Ultra fast shipping. Cart is superbly done. Super fits my 130XE. Very, very good job :).

 

Thanks a lot ctirad.
