KingRex UC384 USB Digital to Digital Converter
The new KingRex UC384 is by far the best value in the USB to S/PDIF Digital to Digital Converter (Audio Interface) category
It has the ability to decode via USB not only bit rates up to 24bit and sample rates up to 192kHz
Also, soon via a driver update, 32bit/352.8kHz will be available on the KingRex UC384. All that for $295! Amazing!
If your Dac or Hometheater Reciever is lacking a USB input or your Dac's USB input does not offer higher resolution input, the UC384 is the perfect solution.
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.
