Costa de Gustard U12 digital interface XMOS program complete independent linear power interface 0.1PPM crystal support 32B 384K

U12 uses the company used in professional audio field XMOS latest chip U8, inside there are eight cores, with powerful multi-core multi-thread processing capability, is the industry's very good USB Audio Class 2.0 digital audio solutions.

Increase the screen display, the sampling rate at a glance

Use XMOS programs to support 32B 384khz asynchronous 2.0 (USB recommended that ASIO output)

Using an independent power supply. Built-in sealing ring cattle, multiple sets of multi-level regulation. About the importance of independent power, I believe we all know.

Optimize the design of the audio clock circuit using 0.1PPM precision active crystal to provide a more perfect clock signal to digital audio. Provided for by the two crystals were 44.1 / 88.2 / 176.4 / 352.8Khz and 48/96/192 / 384Khz series rate signal only after the selected clock rate selected work, work another one audio clock stop, put an end to the mutual interference may bring work simultaneously when the two clocks.

A total of four kinds of output: Coaxial (RCA), optical fiber, AES / EBU, IIS (HDMI port)

Coaxial fiber AES / EBU output formats IEC60958 and AES3-r2009 standard limits the maximum support 24Bit / 192kHz; IIS can transmit 32B 384K

Smart switch, USB has a current interface to boot. Interface with the computer switch and switch machine (computer to be set off USB power failure), or unplug the USB cable directly to the shutdown.

Does the USB require 5V continuously, or just at startup, or no 5V Vbus at all ?    I like to bypass the AC. What is the current draw, and what is required input voltage ?    

5/28/17 7:38 AM Asked.

Hi Andreas,U12 use 5V to turn on AC swicth relay.If the short circuit relay, U12 will always work. No longer need USB 5V.Thank you.

Hello,    When will a new converter will be available from Gustard, replacing the old U12??    I have a Gustard X20u Pro and it would be nice to have a newer converter based on Xmos xcore-200 that would output by I2S with the same pins as the Gustard pro inputs (we are stocked whith the first error from Gustard)and could support higher DSD upsampling...

My Gustard U12 receives its USB input from an Auralic Aires Mini and is connected to a W4S DAC2 DSDse v.2 by a W4S IS2 Cable. Sample rates through 384hz are play properly through the W4S DAC. Unfortunately, DSD64 and DSD128 files do not-there is no sound. The LCD Gustard U12, reads DSD64 or DSD 128 files and the Lightening DS software indicates that the file is "playing" but there is no output from the W4S DAC. Please advise.
