Hi all,Does anyone have experience with these ICs ? I never used one but i saw many times, they are pretty cheap compared to THAT;I need some 2181, Coolaudio V2181 seem a good choice, anyone has ever tried it?thanks
Thanks for the background scan, BenB - I was wondering why I hadn't heard of them before (after all, pro audio silicon is a pretty small business)Does anyone know if they have genuine wafer production, or if they just buy finished silicon and package..? All the hype on their page seems to point towards them wishing they had..
(..) This makes anything they they sell somewhat mystery meat, unless you choose to just trust them
those f*ckers knocked off one of my TI chips, and copied the datasheet almost word for word. I'm not bitter./R
Cool audio has knocked off many iconic ICs.
This only adds to my strong suspicion that the company has never actually designed any new part, it only "second sources" (whether it's authorized to do so or not, and generally it looks like not) other parts.Earlier I mentioned the "distributors" that sell Cool Audio parts, I think a better name for them is retailers.
