According to a datasheet, the AD1848K (which was a popular version of AD1848)
is full-duplex (can work in single-dma mode or with two dma channels).

The AD1848 in my SC-6000 is not the K version (at least it is not marked on
the chip) but I saw a photo on the net with SC-6000 and AD1848K (it had no
YMF-262 chip but a different one).

I am looking for the AD1848 datasheet  for the pre-K version (or list of
differences between K and earlier versions).

Also, I would like to know how you put your SG card into full-duplex mode.

It seems that hardware of AD1848/CS4231 was not used to its full potential
(SB compatibility was more important).
