USB Output Board
August 17, 2022 04:53PM
Hi folks,
Based on requests from the users, we have decided to design an output card with USB Audio Device capable of 8-channel operation. On top of that, there is a bank of asynchronous resamplers which will allow the USB Audio to run at fixed sampling rate set from the host PC. This will address the little issue of the USB Audio class, where the device cannot tell the host which sampling rate to set and it has be set manually prior to data transfer and every time the sampling rate changes. The ASRC bypass mode for bit-transparent transmission will be naturally supported too. Here is a preview of the board:



This board will basically turn the VanityPRO into 8-channel HDMI to USB Audio converter with ASRC option. If you are interested in this solution, please let us know either here on the forum or through the contact form. The board is expected to be available late September, depending on manufacturing turnaround and components availability.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,
Pavel

Hello, a quick update!
We have finished the hardware design with a few changes from the initial version. Now the board has two extra BNC/RCA connections, one SPDIF output and one SPDIF input. The output is connected to the USB interface for audio monitoring or synchronization of other external devices. The input then can be used as an alternative signal source and switched between HDMI/ARC/SPDIF/IN for increased flexibility.



Due to the parts cost, this USB board will need to be a paid option, not just one of the standard output module options included. The extra cost will only cover the BOM and manufacturing price difference, nothing huge.

If you are interested, please message us to reserve a board for you from the first production batch. Any questions, please ask.
Best Regards,
Pavel

Hot damn Pavel! That’s a really cool option! Along with the clock sync, this adds a lot of flexibility.

Is this card available?

If yes, where?

thank you

Hi all,
The prototype is still being in the manufacturing process due to component lead times slightly longer than expected. It will be probably another one or two weeks. Will keep you informed about progress. Please stgay tuned!
Best Regards,

Ok

Does this USB electronic card make acquisition at the computer level?

Hi Fred,
The main idea behind this USB board is that one can use a PC for multichannel room processing, etc. So, this card, when connected to a PC, will look like a multichannel audio device and then you can use the audio in the PC for whatever you wish. Hope it answered your question.

Pavel

Hello Pavel,
I might be interested in the new board as well.
I really liked the first version but I couldn't make it work well enough with the Okto 8.
Looking forward to hearing about your progress.
Thanks,
Steve from San Antonio

Hi Steve,
Thanks for checking in. We have just received the PCB samples. They seem to be well assembled and shortly we will start the USB audio software works. I will share some photos of the actual board later.
Best Regards,
Pavel
