      It has a powerful GPU in it that could probably easily do the DSP required for 48 or 96kHz bandwidth. Unfortunately, that part of the Broadcom chip does not have open access to it. The OS does the access through a binary blob driver.

      There's another project out there that is completely open source (hardware and software), and IIRC has a very good DSP. Now that I need it of course, I can't find the link to the project. Per board retail cost should be in the $25 range. They are supposedly working on a 7" tablet that should retail for about $100.

      If you're prepared to spend $200, there's Pandaboard, which has open access to a TI C64x DSP and an image accelerator which has frequency domain primitives in addition to a dual core Cortex-A processor.

      We are living in the future here, folks :-)

      In an article they explained that UK suppliers capable of making them in quantity could not meet their price point and those that could were unable to supply

        However they've said that production in the UK in future may be an option.

        That's neat .... but im a little surprised that they didn't know beforehand that china manufactures didn't care about GPL license ... they have ignored copyright for years and are still actively hacking systems for any high-tech information.

        Sorry :(  I don't think the project is quite as far along as the Pi. And I am rather fond of Pi. But that's another story. For now, I have to go to work, but when I get home if I remember I will find it....

        Not quite as early as I promised, but hey, at least now I can go back to lurking without being called a tease, right?
