Default Asus Xonar Essence STU

The Asus Xonar Essence STU https://www.asus.com/Essence-Hi-Fi-A...r_Essence_STU/

It uses the PCM1792A DAC and the TPA6120 headphone amp. I've turned the Internet upside down but I can't find what ADC chip it uses. The device has an analog input (AUX), so it must have one... I've even found board photos but they all stop millimeters away from the ADC chip, placed near the AUX input and the TOSLINK.

Anybody knows about this ADC chip?

OMG, I hope they don't use the pcm9211 internal adc, its only 96KHz and -85dB distortion... for that kind of money they could find something decent.

Thanks anyway...

I don't think it has an ADC, the aux input is so you can use it as a plain headphone amp without using its DAC
