Drew's Hi Fi Holiday Picks for Him - Part 4
The new KingRex UD384 located on the left side of the KingRex setup is by far the best value in the USB DAC category.
Moon Audio gives the KingRex UD384 a BIG Thumbs Up!
It has the ability to decode via USB not only bit rates up to 24bit and sample rates up to 192kHz but it can also with the help of a few software programs play DFF SACD files from your computer.
Also, soon via a driver update, 32bit/352.8kHz will be available on the KingRex UD384. All that for $499! Amazing!
The New KingRex UD 384 can also be used as a USB to Coax SPDIF interface to send digital to your uber high-end DAC! However, it will not spit out SACD via the Coax SPDIF output. And it is limited to the 24bit-192kHz at the SPDIF output.
The KingRex UD384 can also be used in unison with an Apple Camera Connection kit to connect to your Apple iPad.
Moon Audio is the US Distributor for KingRex Products and Dealer inquiries are welcome.
The Kingrex U Power (on the right side of the picture above) offers the end user a way to isolate the Kingrex UD384 USB Dac from noisy & dirty AC power sources. The KingRex UPower is a battery power supply used to power the UD384 with pure DC power.
