  1. Rarely used M2Tech hiFace Evo USB to Digital Interface. USB in, SPDIF (both RCA and BNC), AES (XLR), I^2S (RJ45), Toslink and ST optical outputs, Has input for optional external clock. 44.1K to 192K sampling rates. Power adapter included. Originally: $499.00 Asking $249.00 (or make offer)
  2. The DSD2PCM is a simple yet very sophisticated converter that receives DSD/DoP from DSD files on your server via USB and outputs PCM at 88.2 or 176.4 sample rate. ALSO converts USB PCM to SPDIF. You'll just need a DAC (at least 24/176 capable) that accepts SPDIF via an unbalanced digital cable (standard RCA or BNC with supplied adaptor) and USB and SPDIF cables (not supplied). All DSD2PCM conversion is done on board to eliminate computer CPU load and is compliant with the DSD over PCM (DoP) v1 specification. The DSD2PCM conversion incorporates sophisticated proprietary filters seldom found is realtime playback software. The converters are powered by an internal custom low noise linear power supply. The DSD2PCM converter is designed and built by Simple Design here in the US- certainly one of the leaders in advancing computer audio. This can't be more simple to use- just connect a USB cable from your Mac/PC/Server to the box and a SPDIF cable (RCA or BNC) between the converter and your DAC. Plug in the AC cord and you'll be listening to DSD. Also passes through all PCM sampling rates via asynchronous USB so if you need a converter for a non-USB DAC, this can be used as well. TO BE CLEAR, this is NOT a DAC. Totally sonically transparent. This unit is in perfect condition- placed on my rack, turned on, and worked perfectly until my DAC got DSD via a firmware update, so I no longer need this converter. Ground shipping included in the US only. 120v. Size is only 7 1/4'w x 2.75"h x 11"d. PayPal fee included for US buyers. ​Original price $1,099.00 Selling price $ 350.00 Will accept PayPal or bank check.
  3. I am looking for a good asynchronous USB To SPDIF Converter up to 24/192 As I was looking at the manufacturers site for Musical Fidelity V-link 192 I found that it is discontinued. It is still for sale by Amazon for around $200,- Three questions: 1.: is the technology in this converter outdated or not very good? 2.: Will it be wise to buy it now that it is cheap or shall I look further? 3.: is there a XMOS chip inside? ( I have read good reviews of this chip)
  4. Has anybody used or listened to RAL-24192UT1 from RATOC Systems, Inc.? Their website (http://www.computeraudiophile.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=22) states: "Accepts 16/24 bit resolution, 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz, 176.4kHz, 192kHz sampling rate Linear PCM USB music stream. Two independent X-Tal OSC generate Low-jitter and accurate Audio Master Clock. Includes 24/192kHz enabled DAC and line buffer amp (2Vrms output). Fully isolated S/PDIF coaxial output (75-Ohm load). Includes 300mW powerful Headphone amplifier." It sells for about $300. I have read a favorable review in the German magazine Eins Null but I have not found more then one mention of it in this forum. Do all DACs wit a XMOS chip sound as good? I mean is there not much difference to be heard? if so, then it will be mostly the price of the DAC that determines the choice. Please give your opinion.
