OSSC Audio Upgrade Board

Price:
£26.50 price includes VAT
£22.08 price excluding VAT


Upgrade your OSSC with a digital audio board. This allows you to send both digital audio and video down the DVI connector (or HDMI with a suitable passive adapter). Cheaper and tidier than an external audio integrator and great for TVs that have no analogue audio input. You can read a full review of this upgrade by clicking here.

Please note this particular board is designed for the V1.5 OSSC as pictured below. The V1.5 OSSC has a black case while the earlier 1.3 prototypes had a transparent case. Fitting in the 1.3 OSSC is possible but much more difficult (see the instructions linked below).

 

 

Fitting instructions

Fitting instructions and documentation can be found here. Note that connecting the external master clock by lifting pin 5 of the IT6613 chip is no longer required (or supported).

Remember that to activate the audio upgrade you must install the audio enabled firmware. Firmware can be downloaded from this page. Firmware files named with “-aud” have support for the audio upgrade board.

    Also say that you need to change TX MODE from DVI to HDMI, because I managed to destroy my board thinking something was wrong.
    I desoldered to check that all contacts were fine, but when lifting the new audio board somehow I managed to destroy the pads in the process. I tried to solder directly against the chip pins, but managed to get solder everywhere and am getting signal spread over several pins now and I can’t remove it with a soldering wick. I probably also applied to much heat onto the chip so it’s good night anyways.

    I haven’t given up 100% (only 95%), but just a heads up incase someone else does this mod.

    What does cutting the wires in installation step 1 do? I was about to install the audio board but screwed up soldering in one place and for me also the solder pads came off so I decided not to do the mod… Anyway I already cut the wires and then tested the OSSC after that and audio and video still worked, so I was wondering if it’s something important. Or could it be that I didn’t cut the wires correctly and that’s why it still works? I’m just thinking if cutting the wires and using without the audio board could damage the unit or something, so I just want to know if it’s okay to leave it how it is since it does still work. I should’ve really used thinner solder and smaller soldering iron tip to avoid this, but I didn’t have them at the time, and now I’m just sad, but I’m happy I didn’t break the unit badly…
