    Looking for a USB to AES(or SPDIF) DDC with fixed sample rate

    Hey guys, as the title sais already I am looking for a USB to AES or SPDIF DDC, which is capable of a very good resampling, so it always plays at a fixed sample rate of 96khz (PCM). I tried to find some devices online, but I could never find the info if a fixed sample rate could be set/used...

    PC speaker and Subwoofer advice

    Hey, I've been using the same $10 PC speaker and 'subwoofer' set on my PC for 20 years. I mostly just use it for playing video games, but lately I've been desiring to hear more bass out of my games. Like, when the ground shakes in a game, it would be cool if I could 'feel' it more. I remember...

    "Premium" USB & Ethernet cables?

    G'Day Folks! Long time lingerer, I rarely post, but I'd love an opinion. I've subscribed to Stereophile my whole life and just got April. While the written reviews tend to be an advertisement for the product, John Atkinsons' measurements are what drew me to this mag and quite possibly got me...

    Any software or electrical engineers on the forum familiar with the USB spec?

    I recently got a Moondrop FreeDSP which is an IEM cable with a USB-C termination, comprising both a balanced DAC and a DSP. It's plug and play and the last used DSP profile is automatically carried forward & applied without the need of any software. However, the software you need to configure...

    Hardware volume control of SMSL Sanskrit 10th MKⅢ over USB

    Hi. Anyone had luck controlling their SMSL DAC (hardware) volume using the USB interface? The Sanskrit 10th MKⅢ does not seem to expose its volume control over USB (see output from amixer below). I have come across reports online that this was possible with the MKII version, and other SMSL DAC...
