Teralink X2
 
I just received it and it does work well, the sound is smooth and detailed so I can say there is no problem with me. I use a meridian DAC and DSP active speakers.

Using the spdif from the maudio 2496PCI from the PC was not tolerable. Every time I switch the rooms lights on/off the sound would stop for a second. Now everything is tip top sounding and no drop off!

Any with the same usb/spdif convertor and care to comment?

Hi, I'm looking to buy a Teralink X or X2 in the next few weeks for my Home Theatre PC project. Do you mind if I ask where did you buy the Teralink X2 from?

I'll add my comments on its performance once I've given it a try.

Thanks.

I bought the X2 on eBay on 2010/03/31. I found it to be very good but a little "soft" like my Audiotrak DR.DAC2 DX when using USB.

The Teralink X2 and Audiotrak DR.DAC2 DX have the same USB audio controller: Tenor TE7022L.

I would like to know if anybody have tried this board with linux.

Ciao

I have used them both with Ubuntu. I sold the X2 but have my DX connected to Ubuntu by USB at this moment. System IDs the unit as "Audiotrak_DR.DAC2_DX".

I am using the switching PS and USB cable that came in the box. The USB cable has a noise filter at the "B" (DAC) end.

Hi joe_mansell,
thanks for the info, have you tried if it's possible to use these cards with Ubuntu also at 96/24?

Another question to people owning a TE7022L based cards (like the Teralink X2):
have you tried it with ESS9008 or 9018 DAC (Buffalo I or II)?

Everything going to the DAC was 44kHz, couldn't find a solution. I don't know if this was gstreamer or pulseaudio or ALSA issue.

To know what is going on you have to disable pulseaudio (maybe this is not necessary if you are shure no other apps are using audio) and try something like:
# aplay -l
to see the right numbers for you interface (to replace x and y below)
# aplay -Dhw:x,y song.wav
with song.wav a 96KHz 24bit wav file
