Does the TS-2 have a digi option?
^^
No, and I'm using the sd722 for the AD>Recorder only here, the pre side of the sd722 is not in play.

Some new posts in 5fishes forum about maybe resurrecting the TS2 with a few mods (including one to the price). Only time will tell if anything comes of the talk.

Yes, I really hope that he does come out with a TS-2 "that he can afford to produce" and offer up for sale without a massive amount of "grunt labor" on his end.  The TS-2 is a great sounding box in my opinion...

Got email from FiveFish answering a question about availability of the TS-2 "old-style" prototype:

Quote
I have (2) left.

A red case with black panel, and a light gold case with black panel.


The price he quoted is close to what he originally posted in these threads.

I decided not to buy as I want something with a bit more flexibility (m/s decoding and monitoring, on-board a/d, etc).

cheers
Paul

Can you remind us of what that previous price was so we don't have to search through 60 or so pages of posts?
thanks.

He was asking $499 + shipping.  Add a buck to that.

Cool!

The THAT1510 is a really sweet chip.  I built a battery powered pre a few years ago which I ran in front of a Sony MZ-RH1 for nature recording. Even with really basic perf board construction the pre was far quieter that the RH1's internal preamps (which were praised in naturerecording circles for their low noise level) and had an almost dead flat noise floor when measured at 66db gain.

There a recording I made with this set up on line, tho it is a dawn chorus so  be warned
