SOtM dx-USB HD asynchronous USB to S/PDIF converter

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Howdy, Do any of you have any experience with this relatively new asynchronous USB to S/PDIF converter? There's obviously quite a few of options on the market these days, and this particular model may be too fresh for people to have any direct experience with it: http://www.digitalaudionews.net.au/2011/05/29/sotm-dx-usb-hd-asynchronous-usb-spdif-converter/

Bumping to ask if anyone has any experience with this product. I've seen it referenced in one other thread, but impressions/reviews seem non-existent.

I've heard good things about SOtM as a company.

I would love to know also.

Bump

Still nobody?

 

It looks very high quality build, the firm is really dedicated to get the best out of the PC

Subscribed.

 

SOtM makes the tX-USB card used in the Auraliti and CAPS/CAPS v2.0.  Given their reputation, I'm looking forward to hearing more about this converter.

 

Edit: Apparently, there's also an "mBPS-d2s" battery power supply, to be paired with the dx-USB HD.  I'm not a fan of these names, though.

Looks like Hi-Fi World reviewed the SOtM dx-USB HD: http://www.hi-fiworld.co.uk/index.php/internet-audio/445-usb-convertors.html?start=4

 

Decided to take the plunge.  I was informed the battery box was backordered, so that may take a few weeks to get here.  I'll make some brief notes when both have arrived.

Congrats! Seems to me like a very nice transport. I've had to settle with a Hiface Two. I bet the SOtM sounds pretty darn good.

I've had the dx-USB HD and mBPS-d2s for a few months now, but I haven't had much listening time.  Kind of a shame, as the LL and BHSE showed up just around that time as well, and have been sitting and quietly gathering dust because of all the work I've had to do in the meantime.  Haven't had a chance to do an A/B or any such thing.
