USB-I2S Audio-Interfaces

It is a great time to be an audio diy’er. There is currently great availability of quality boards aiming at providing the greatest fidelity with incredible VALUE.

Here are some side by side photos of the two USB-I2S interfaces I own.





Worthy of mention is the upcoming next generation Wave IO board. Mr. Lorien posted a sneak peek at his next generation board [link]


From the look of the layout, this board has electrical isolation of the outputs and flip-flop reclocking after the isolator.

    There’s still only the exaU2I that will do 8-channel out, correct? That’s a shame because it’s very expensive for most people.

    Hi, Justin,

    If you are a DIY audio user, this might meet your requirement.

    Looking forward to see the next generation WaveIO coming to life!! I’m very satisfied with the one I currently own.

      Does it already have a USB interface? If so, the output of the USB interface is likely I2S

    Yes, there is a usb interface. However, I can’t put xmos to this interface. Please guide me how to upload image or inform your email address so I can send images to you.
