We improved the AUDIO quality of PAMELA AUDIO Chip (PAULA 2.0) this weekend.

As you will know PAMELA support full 8 DMA driven audio channels able to play 8/16bit samples

This weekend the AUDIO quality was improved to full HI-FI levels with 24bit mixing precision plus 4-times oversampling.

Another feature is added.

* optional STEREO separation
This feature allows to make AMIGA audio more headphone friendly.

I always thought Pamela should be an improved graphics chip since the name gives me some graphical associations :)

But the progress is here, bravo boys !

Audio comes via HDMI. For the analog audio you will need HDMI Audio Splitter. Something like this: EXTERNAL LINK

I notice the description says "Specifications:
1.HDMI resolution: 1080P/1080i/720p/576p/576i/480p/480i" but what about the esoteric Amiga modes we can push through the HDMI?

Better to have proper HDMI-display with audio support, than DVI-monitor without HDMI audio support. No need for adapters/splitters then.

The "esoteric" Amiga modes are 576p (PAL) and 480p (NTSC) which are listed above.

Many displays should provide an audio out option to connect to some amplifier. Or you might use an A/V receiver with HDMI in the first place.
So there are many different options.
