Default USB to SPdif converter

Sorry the noob question. I go trough a lot of threads but i found nothing that fits.

i need a converter from my laptop usb ---> to other digital outputs - e.g. spdif

my actually DAC has a lot of digital inputs but just anlaog outputs. i want to go with spdif in some tests amps and not over analog...

i found that....

SMSL X-USB XMOS USB zu Koaxialem Optischem IIS Digital: Amazon.de: Elektronik

your feedback please.

thanks...

i want to avoid to install every test amp over usb interface on my laptop. so my idea is to have one converter (one installation) and so i can connect this to all test amps over spdif.

I am using this SMSL USB bridge right now on Daphile. No problem so far. This may be out of the topic. I replaced all the SOT-23 regulators with better ones (ADP151) in order to verify the effect of Ian's FIFO. The result is that I couldn't tell the difference between them.

I'm currently using one of these for USB->S/PDIF. It also has a header for I2S output. And a grunt-grade onboard DAC (ES9023).

CM6631A???? USB?I2S/SPDIF???? 32/24Bit 192K??-???

Oh..yes the ESS9023 is really a good chip. If i checked the boards available in Aliexpress or amazon (it is because of delivery and warranty...delivery from overseas here in AUT ...our customs duty office want to have approx 20 euro !)) i didnt find the CM3361A Pro version.

on the pcb which you are showing is written Pro version.

thx chris

This one on Aliexpress has 'PRO' and 'Professional' on the silkscreening - 2017 CM6631A Digital interface 32 / 24Bit 192K Sound Card USB to I2S / SPDIF Coaxial Output Support Connect Decoder Upgrade DAC-in Amplifier from Consumer Electronics on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

The vendor's based in China however. Guess that's inevitable.
