Commenting a recent news item on amiga-news.de, Davy Wentzler of OS4 fame said the on-board sound of the AmigaOne does not work, furthermore explaining the chip is physically not present on AmigaOnes produced the last 9 months.
Frank Gutschow said on 05-Mär-2004, 23:38: "Meines erachtens sollte definitiv wirklich ersteinmal der Onboard-Chip des AmigaOne unterstützt werden."
Davy Wentzler answered on 05-Mär-2004, 23:45: "I'm gonna say it once more: it doesn't work. There's even a big chance, the chip is not physically present anymore on boards manufactured in the past 9 months."
Will Eyetech exchange all defect and component missing AmigaOnes or will they refund users that received broken hardware?

|a) Yes AC97 isn't the best there is, but neither are soundblasters (IMO there are even worse).|
b) Wasn't it Alan himself who claimed that the A1 had no bugs/probs due to the close contact they had with MAI, who themselves were sooooo thick with VIA ?
c) Wasn't AC97-sound one of the few arguments, used to claim that the A1-XE wouldn't be a TeronPX ? *eg*
d) Is this a design-error in the Ter^H^H^HAmigaOne-layout ? Or is it an SW-issue all along ?
e) And where does it leave the MikroA1, which utilizeses the same chips ? Useing a PCI-card for something basic like sound, doesn't really look good for such a design .
