Remember that each Silenzio user is trained one-on-one on how to maximize usage and become a pro user. In essence, you become your own manual over time.
Thanks so much E.

Thanks Tim!

My main reason for a manual was to get a better understanding about the unit. For example there are bunch of inputs/outputs? What are inputs and what are outputs and what are they used for typically? The BD slot is it used for ripping only or can you view BD's

I told you I was a novice. 😎

Primary function is to rip.

Like all spinners when it is active it makes noise so using it for direct playback sort of defeats the purpose of a truly dead silent media server.

What is the USB card utilized by the Silenzio? Could it be made with a JCAT USB Card with FEMTO clock on the output side? Other (better?) USB cards? I would like to eliminate as much PC noise as possible without the use of "doo-dad's" attached to the USB cables.

Could it include an I2S HDMI output to use with PS Audio DAC's?

The dedicated USB PCIe card in Silenzio is based off of a NEC chipset with a dedicated power rail input (from the internal PSU).

If you wanted the JCAT, I can make it happen.

Same with I2S: the only I2S bridge out there I know of is with Pink Faun, and they also have the OCXO module that can be added.

E no offense but what happens if something happens to you ? Are there other support personnel for repairs or software / hardware issues?
