Heads-up: Canaan Creative have a completely revamped website presence.  As part of this change, Canaan Creative will be shutting down their forums at http://bbs.canaan-creative.com/ on September 26th, 2015.
If you have any posts, files, etc. there that you would like to keep, please be sure to archive them when you can (connectivity to the forum is spotty at best).

While I think it's a shame they're shutting it down (instead of just making it read-only and unlisted), at least they are announcing this well ahead of time, which is more than I can say for KnC, BFL and others.
Thanks for sharing that.  I have been wondering what is going on over at Avalon when our 4.1 group buy was never able to work out.  Then they put up the info of the mini, but never put a price tag on it.

I like what they put together, but the lack of information on developments, and seeming to always be priced much higher than the competition confuses me.

Does anyone know if I can get the 4.1 to run off windows 7 with cgminer?
I don't see why not, but hopefully philipma1957 can say for sure.

yeah hes sending me out a raspberry pi, hopefully he can get it out today.. i have 2 avalon's just sitting here collecting dust Sad

it is on its way. I just got back from post office.

I loved my 4.1's should have kept them.  But with my power costs in the summer I had to sell them off.

I love my Avalon 4.1's.   They are truly one of the few miners that quietness was there.  I have had a lot of miners and most are loud, just a fact of mining.

But this winter if I need to heat a room it likely will be with the 4.1's as so little noise.

Ok So I am a bit confused, I just received an avalon 4.1 and I have downloaded the iso for pi from http://downloads.canaan-creative.com/software/avalon4/openwrt/latest/ and burnt the image to an sd card and put it in my pi. The pi is not showing up on my connected devices list for some reason, it is ethernet directly to my router and I can't get an IP to connect to for the web gui, am I missing a step here?

Okay so I have the pi and the software working but and it is set to a static IP but when I try to ping I get Waiting for command to complete... and then it gets a bad address. So I am not sure what in my settings to change to make it work correctly.

If you know that the pi and the software are working, I have the idea that you can telnet into the pi, and you can ping from your desktop machine or router to the pi.  Is this true?


I try to be respectful and informed.

I have fixed it, I had accidentally downloaded the firmware for Avalon 2 since they have similar names and locations and this was my issue.

Not sure where the best place to post this but I am interested in purchasing multiples of TP-Link TL-WR703N devices if you are done with them.
Contact me if you have any, thanks.

Avalon 6 is an interesting unit, but higher cost per TH and lower efficiency than the S7 (close on both though), you pretty much NEED 3cent.KWH or less electric cost to have any chance at achieving RoI on either unit.

 The Avalon 6 IS aimed a bit better at the "home mining" market, though.

S7 still has no serious competition. Yet.

don't know that you are correct first off the avalon 4.1 could be down volted and under clocked.....  so if the 6 can do this it may be more efficient then the s-7.

Second if the rasp pi dies you can have a backup on hand and ready for avalon for under 50 bucks


to back up the s-7 controller you need 2 s-7's as they will piggy back on to each other.  In fact this is true with the first s-7 batch. No one has shown if batch 2 or 3 controllers with new firmware can do that.

Myself I have 2 s-7's but I will very likely order an avalon 6 to test it for under volt under clock.

Warranty:

Avalon miners include a 90 day warranty, starting from the date goods are received.

Is this (90 days for private customers) compatible with existing US law?

If the Avalon 6 can be undervolted, that would make it somewhat more attractive - similar to the SP20 vs the S5 - and would help it's value some.

 I still doubt it would be significantly profitable past the July 2016 block reward halfing though.

 UnderCLOCK on ASIC miners generally has no noticeable effect on efficiency.

I'm almost sure it is, one of the reason is that they need a fixed voltage of 12v +/- 0.2v to operate.
