The line in on the ABJ goes directly to the input of the MAS3550 ... which
is really only an amplifier and channel selector. These ports on the 3550
are designed to take an input from another audio source (such as a radio
tuner, CD player, tape, etc), and allow the MAS to do the switching between
them, so you can have an MP3 player with built in radio, etc. Therefore, it
is not possible for the input to be encoded, as it is not 'visible' to
either the CPU (which could possibly encode an input), nor the MAS 3507,
which cannot (it has no A/D input).

HOWEVER: I have just remebered all the A/D lines from the uP that head off
_somewhere_ .... these could go to the inputs aswell. Ahhhhhhh .....

Finally got my new multimeter, so a buzzing I will go. Should have a more
accurate schematic by tomorrow.


PS: About the ISD datasheets; the company was recently acquired by Cypress,
and you seem to need to contact them about datasheets .... I plan to do that
today too ... FYI, here is the email from ISD:

I am a contract engineer who requires a USB - ATA solution for a client
project. I would like to evaluate the ISD-200 for this purpose, but cannot
find a link to the datasheet on your website. Could you proivde me with
this data so that I can determine if this chip is suitable?

Thank you in advance,

Andrew Jamieson
