Default USBStreamer multichannel USB audio interface

And here is to a new little fun toy!

Introducing the USBStreamer, a 10x IN, 10 x OUT asynchronous USB interface with native support up to 192kHz. With toslink (stereo) or I2S (8ch) support, this USB audio dongle will fit most custom Audio project thanks to its miniature size, support for Mac/Windows and great potential for customization.

A low cost innovative platform for your fun projects

Check out the product page for more info. User manual to be released mid next week. Boards will start shipping end of next week.

Hope you're liking it!

We look forward to seeing your 7.1 custom USB dac running at 24/192! :-)

Have fun

Awesome, this product looks perfect for my needs.

Is there any chance that the next firmware version will support outputting the sampling frequency to the GPIO pins? (e.g. One output each for 44.1, 96, 192, etc to be hooked to front panel LEDs)

@ Neil,

Sorry for missing your post and the delay in our reply.
I guess that we should indeed have enough GPIO to have it running as such. It's a good idea that we could investigate in the future. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi,
Which channel I should connect if I just want to use the USBstreamer feeding a 2 channels DAC using I2S ?

Thanks

@ syklab,

The USBStreamer will appear as an 8ch Asio device in your PC so you can choose any of them... You just need to select the correct one in your ASIO router. :-)
As per the user manual, Pin1 is I2S data OUT ch1&2 - Playback. So I guess you could use this one. Makes sense?

Hello,

Since the USBStreamer seems to be USB Audio Class 2.0 compliant, am I correct in assuming that it would work out of the box under Linux? Also, the firmware update's process is only described under Windows in the manual. Would it be possible under Linux/OS X?

Thanks

@ Buissonvert,

I'm afraid that we haven't tried the USBStreamer on Linux but from what we're told, some end users are fine using it on Linux. We'd have to wait more to confirm officially though.

As for the firmware upgrade, I'm afraid that it's currently only a Windows process. No immediate plans to build a dedicated application for that process I'm afraid.

I'd really like to hear if anyone's got the USBstreamer working with the Raspberry Pi.

Alright.

Hmmm... any chance of doing IC over the GPIO pins in the future (to configure a few DAC chips)?
