The FPGA pins that serve I2S are not connected on the 01 USD so no I2S available, I'd imagine (software driver might even be different) - A cheaper, smaller version of 01 US (one with DAC) is being released 01 Mini Monitor

Thanks jkeny. I assume no one done tapping I2S for the 01 USD yet, so I won't risk experimenting with that...

As I said I'm pretty sure there is no I2S available in the 01 USD (FPGA pins not connected to any tracks and the software is probably different) - is this the unit you have or have you not bought one yet?

This is cheaper than the 01 USD & has a internal DAC, like the 01 US - $60 delivered, I think

As far as I can see it has no separate clocks for multiples of 44.1 kHz and multiples of 48 kHz. So it must rely on a (digital) PLL anyway with a single crystal.

I have ordered one. Lets see what it will bring to jitter compared to my E-MU 0404, which has separate fixed crystal clocks. And my M-Audio Transit, which is really nasty considering jitter on its S/PDIF output.

Hi Pjotr,

Could you give me any literatures that mention EMU0404 uses separate crystal for 48k and 44.1k? I am curious myself...

Have a look at the board:

Thanks Pjotr, wonderful insight!! Now I wish EMU made DAC-only version of 0404

Thumbs up musiland monitor 01usd

I bought one from e bay for 80$, and am pretty pleased with a sound; haved some smaller problems to install it and maked it work with foobar, especially with a dts audio materials. Anyway, this little gadget allows you to made any computer vulgaris a nice sounding device. The "sound" of this device which is connected to a diy tube dac is much better then before with my creative sound card & modified kx drivers, music is much better defined, with nice bass and detailed highs. Verdict -to buy and forget expensive fancy media centres...
