I'm curious if you guys noticed a surge of interest around the time that LGR made his video? This so when I first heard about it and added my name to the queue.
I personally waited a long time before getting on the queue. However, I figured that holding off would be a bad idea. I am building a P3 Coppermind 933 on a Gigabyte Mobo and eventually this will be the Orpheus' new home.
Who knows, maybe even Edro and Leo will be unable to source parts in a few months for this project. Yes, I know that these crystal chips are common and all, but what about the OPL chips? With the purported instability in the market, I am somewhat afraid.
Heh, worry worry worry.
What I should be doing is giving a hand to Leo and Edro for doing this for us. I purchased mine a few days back and even though it has not shipped yet, I have a very good feeling that I am going to get my money's worth. Heck, the Orpheus is actually priced fairly unlike half the crap on market right now.
Why buy a noisy and buggy Awe32 for $1820987593762.999999 (SUPER RARE RETRO!!!)
that may or may not crumble in shipping, when you can purchase this NEW card, with NEW* components, and improves upon the Soundblaster in almost every concievable way.
Hopefully, I should be recieving a tracking number in a few days time🙂
Whenever it comes I am planning on uploading some comparison videos. I can compare it against a PCI Yamaha YMF 754 on a Labway Xwave card, another decent quality card with real OPL on board. If those legendary DSXG YMF-754-R chips are still available en mass, they would be perfect for a clone card project wink wink:
