TOPIC: AKM AK4493 Chip Update For SHD?

AKM AK4493 Chip Update For SHD? 3 weeks 5 days ago #44965

Hi. I am wondering if anyone knows if MiniDSP will be updating the SHD's AK4490 DAC chip to the new AK4493. I know RME has begun to do this for their DACs as AKM is no longer producing the AK4490.

I have no idea the answer to your question, but I'm curious where you read it is stopped production? (No indication on the AK website that I can see, digikey say it's Active). I wonder if it's just a matter of soldering in a different chip or there is PCB redesign needed.
I am not miniDSP support.

This is RME's explanation for their recent revision of the ADI-2 DAC, which shares the same chip.
