I need to know what kind of connections those are for the USB in and RCA out, since I want to buy some better cables than the ones included.

I figured out the RCA one, but the usb one is still an issue. Anyone know what kind of connector this is?

See USB Connector Types. I wouldn't spend real money on a USB cable. If they're sturdy enough and they work, they're all the same.

 

"RCA connectors" have been the same for decades. Look up "RCA cables" or "Interconnect cables" anywhere.

Thanks, I think it's a B-type like the one I have for my headphone amp, but the little square notch at the top threw me off.

It's a newer USB 3 B type connector (http://www.activemp.com/assets/usb-30/cable-B.jpg)

 

The RCA and the BNC next to it are SPDIF connections.

What does the 5-pin MULINK (Multi digital signal connection) do?

 

And I do not believe it's a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) as it does not seem to have an analog output.

The only outputs I see are S/PDIF, optical and coaxial (RCA & BNC)

It's more of a USB (digital) to S/PDIF (digital) converter.

MULINK seems to be a proprietary connector for current or future devices from the company, probably something like I2S or ACSS/CAST.
