  • The Missing Link Gets a 192 kHz Boost Musical Fidelity's V-Link has gained reputation for extraordinary technical performance and incredible value for money. The new V-LINK192 is for ultra-high resolution 24-bit, 192 kHz USB. Up to now, this has been the territory of very expensive asynchronous devices only. The V-Link192 offers true 24/192 asynchronous performance at an outstandingly competitive price. Use It to Supercharge Your DAC Now more than ever, the V-Link is the missing link in the evolution of your audio system. If you've been suffering from the computer music blahs, wrestling with low-fidelity music, try the V-Link192 and hear what you've been missing. No, the V-Link192 isn't a DAC. But it allows your DAC to receive up to a true 24-bit, 192 kHz data stream from your computer so that you can enjoy a truly high-end, better-than-CD audio quality. Increasing numbers of music lovers are turning to computer-based audio, which means that the connections are almost certain to be USB. Quality outputs like S/PDIF simply are not available on most computers. With the growing popularity of downloaded music at CD-and-better data rates, computers audiophile quest after higher quality. The V-Link192 is an asynchronous 24-bit, 192 kHz USB interface designed to bridge the gap between the PC and a high-quality DAC. The V-Link192 offers outstanding technical performance. It has both coaxial and fully balanced digital outputs. Both are fully galvanically isolated for best performance. Additionally, the V-Link192 has input frequency LEDs (similar to the M1 DAC) which indicate the following frequencies: 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, and 192 kHz.

    "Great Product"
    Pros - Price to performance ratio
    Cons - Doesn't come with necessary cables
    This thing does what it's supposed to do and does it well.  Noticeable improvement in sound quality.  For $200 you can't go wrong.  No real complaints from me about the V-link at all.
