Default USB digital audio transciever

Someone please name a good USB digital audio transciever. The T-I PCM2906 seems like a good candidate, but neither Digi-key nor Allied nor Newark have any. Digi-key is quoting March for more stock!

I'd like to build a simple USB device with four digital outputs: AES/EBU, coax S/PDIF, optical S/PDIF, and I<sup>2</sup>S over LVDS. The device will be powered by the USB line.

I know Philips makes USB audio interfaces, but I can't figure out which are the ones I want, and where I can get them.

Other chips in the design will be TI DIR1704 for low jitter conversion of S/PDIF to serial audio, and CS8420 (I have spares laying around) for the AES transmitter.

Windows got drivers for USB audio since Wiruz98 i think atleast i didnt need any new software for my PCM2702based dac. Works really god and kicks my AC97 onboard soundcard ...

Just make sure that the settings is for a continius data flow for optimal performance..

When I connect tas1020 to computer windows xp does not recognize it. It is unknown device.

I need application code for tas1020b and DFU ( i guess this is program from ti for configuring tas1020 via usb).

If someone have this, please let me know.

Thank you in advance
