I want to buy a Gr8net.

Who in the Netherlands wants to buy one too and share shipping costs?

Since I whined so hard to get audio/music stereo on a jack output I guess I'm obligated to join Smile

Only one extra. More people would not dramatically reduce the price.
So already made the order and Eugeny has posted the package.

I wonder how good the audio quality (and networking performance) will be Wink

The network performance is good. I do not know about the audio quality, as my GR8NET is from an earlier batch without the audio jack Sad

Fully agree with Abi, you won't regret your purchase.

Of course I will not regret buying it.

I already have a purpose for it. For that I need to have acceptable networking performance to make it work.

And acceptable means about 20 TCP/IP connections per seconds. Every connection has to transfer a JSON messages of about 300 bytes.
If there was DTLS support in the W5100 or FPGA, then I could have had a more relaxed MSX because of the way more efficient message format.

I will see where the bottlenecks are and if I can work around it.

In case someone wonders, it has something to do with: https://developers.meethue.com/entertainment-blog
