Default WTS: ART Legato USB->SPDIF Converter (Made by jocko homo)

Yes, the one and only jocko homo, that spdif guru.

It uses the same wavelink async usb technology, no drivers needed at all, unlike all the m2tech hiface OEM usb interfaces out there. If you're like me and 99% of your library is red-book, then this is probably the best 16/44.1 spdif converter out there.

Comes with the ART U-Byte spdif cable (USD200), an upgrade over the freebie spdif cable that comes with the legato. The U-byte is no longer made because the costs have went up too much. More info on the u-byte and legato design here:
ART - Legato Technical Information
Analog Research SPDIF cables are available again

Also comes with a custom ART usb cable (USD50), 3m in length. Doesn't have the usb power wire in it, eliminating any possibility of noisy usb power coming in from the computer, keeping the usb data signal line clean.

Legato + U-byte spdif + usb cable is all yours for USD 700 shipped, world-wide. Unit is 240v but is dual voltage switchable. Payment by paypal, verified users only so we're both protected. Thanks for looking

Interesting read but I wonder why one would buy a USB to SPDIF converter to connect an older existing DAC (instead of a complete new well made USB DAC with good electronic properties and thus skipping the SPDIF with all its nasties) ?!?

Too bad that there are no pics of the internals as I like to see craftsmanship. Oh wait, I just see Jocko mocking again about people copying his design
