    Melodious MX-U8 USB Interface 8 Core XMOS chip

    Just thought I would update my purchase from Shenzhen Audio   I purchased a 220V version and the box was marked as such, unfortunately it was actually 110V version and naturally died   I returned the dead one, they have shipped a new one and refunded the $33 return shipping
