    Katana is rather targeted to DIY crowds that like to play and tinker with their toys.


    For those of you that would rather have a easy solution , working from one PSU...not to worry, we heard you and we are working on it.
    The controversy was an error, the suggestion of the "tone board" was misinterpreted as someone suggesting the Katana needed a tone control, however it was a suggestion of a competing product that could be of interest.

    No harm Done.

    Have I read that right, you are developing a KATANA that requires only one psu?

    In comparison the PecanPi currently is $225 and power supply is included in that price. Even with case it is $350.
    For me the upgrade from Allo Boss would be:

    The Pecan Pi board only, would cost a around £300 Inc import tax to the UK

    The Katana boards only, would cost £250 from Audiophonics.fr

    I have a RPI, LPSUs and SMPS that can power both so no extra cost there.

    Oli,
    I believe he is referring to this? ( I just went looking.. )

    Itís a dual lps that can power the Katana & RPi.

    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    It is a daft name that invites misinterpretation of what it does though.

    Lol, yes I must admit when I first read the post I thought he was suggesting. Tone control lol.

    Not his fault, the name is slightly misleading.

    All hi fi equipment should just have an alpha-numerical designation. Save the 'evocative' names for cars and vacuum cleaners. DAC manufactures reading this please take note!

    All of my current gear, including the cables, have only alpha-numeric designations. So that precludes me investigating certain cartridges amongst others.

    In fact the only items of mine which have a name are the Infinity 'Black Widow' arm, and the Leak 'Troughline Stereo' tuner; but I no longer use either of them.
