XMOS 192kHz high-quality USB to SPDIF with ultralow noise 1.0uV regulator
with high-quality aluminium housing and gold plated RCA connector
This is the best USB to SPDIF for audiophile to enjoy.
1) The XMOS used in this pcb is XU216 2000MIPS and it contains two tile. It is equal to two XU208 combined in one silicon chip, one dedicated tile is used for the USB data and the other tile is dedicated to process the audio data to the DAC. XU216-512 includes 4x more ram than xu208-128, 8x more ram than U8/U6.
2) C0G AC coupling capacitor (All SPDIF output equipment requires AC coupling capacitor to avoid the isolated transformer saturated by DC bias component, if no grey color(C0G) capacitor is found in the PCB, that SPDIF equipment can be considered as low end)
3) Ultra low phase noise NDK NZ2520SD oscillator, thin film resistor and Murata isolated transformer (Be care the very common China made Pulse transformer in many 192khz SPDIF equipment is only capable of maximum 7Mbps(i.e. 96khz) according to the official datasheet.) Components are sourced from NDK and digikey directly (guarantee no fake product from China)
4) 1.0uVrms Ultralow noise linear power regulator (use of decade old LM317/1117 regulator is kidding for audiophile)
5) 4+2 layer PCB = total 6 layer PCB, Solid ground plane (a must for high speed digital circuit)
6) No Via in active circuit (via inductance always create jitter problem)
7) Compact size 60mmx 90mm x 25mm
8) PCB can be USB powered or manual switch to external power 5-6V. The external power socket uses the most common plugs size 5.5 mm (0.22 in) in outside diameter. Please notes any modification void item warranty
