I'm currently waiting for three ES982A chips, will be intersting to compare their dumps. Hopefully it will arrive this month, it's been a long time already.

Answers:
1. Yeah, those BTC cards without wavetable parts are relatively common, definitely more common than those with it. I currently two or three in my possession and had several chances to buy more.
2. I know for sure that multimedia docking station (the one with CD-ROM) for Compaq Armada 41XX has it and Compaq Armada 77XX series has it to (the one from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyqJZhKXkT4). The later one has it in TSOP package, marked as ES982N.

I'll keep an eye on them and try to grab one. That's odd - the only "empty" type of boards I've ever seen had layouts for AdMOS wavetables.

Alright - if one crosses my way I'll try to pick it up for you. Also read your other topic stating that some of the laptops themselves had built in wavetable parts - so this gives me a better chance of obtaining those chips for you.

Hi. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish the project, so I'll just share the dump and hope that somebody will continue. DISCLAIMER: This dump is probably corrupted, but it could be used as basis for comparison with another one.
