RME Digiface USB Ships
RME’s Digiface USB is a portable and lightweight audio interface (only 220 grams /0.49 pounds) that transfers digital audio data in SPDIF and ADAT format to Windows and Mac computers. There are four optical ADAT / SPDIF I/O inputs and an analog line/phones output via 6.3-millimeter TRS jack. A triple ADAT I/O interface with phones and PCI interface, Digiface USB is designed to simplify connection with USB 2, does not need an external power supply, and even adds another optical I/O, resulting in 32 channels input and output each when using ADAT optical.
Each single optical port can use either ADAT (up to eight channels) or SPDIF (stereo). While the inputs adapt automatically to the received signal format, the outputs can be individually switched between ADAT and SPDIF operation. Supported are SMUX and SMUX4. Therefore at 192 kHz either eight channels via four SPDIF or ADAT are possible on both inputs and outputs.
Here are the details.
