Weiss INT204

USB to AES/EBU (unidirectional) interface


You may own your fa­vorite D/A Con­verter al­ready. It may be not the lat­est and great­est, but you like its sound and its looks and fea­tures. So you don’t like the idea to get an­other DAC just to be able to con­nect the com­puter. This is where our in­ter­faces come in (also see the IN­T202/IN­T203 in­ter­faces de­scribed else­where). They al­low to con­nect any DAC to any com­puter. And this in a de­cent way, with the com­puter slaved to the in­ter­nally gen­er­ated clock and with ab­solute bit transparency.  he IN­T204 is a USB to AES/EBU (uni­di­rec­tional) in­ter­face. It also han­dles DSD to PCM con­ver­sion, thus if a DSD files is played on the com­puter the IN­T204 con­verts the DSD data to PCM at a se­lec­table sam­pling fre­quency and word-length. Your trusted D/A Con­verter thus all of a sud­den be­comes a DSD ca­pa­ble DAC.

The IN­T204 is housed in a sil­ver an­odized alu­minum frame.

Power Sup­ply 
Two power sources are re­quired for the IN­T204. One is the bus power fed via the USB con­nec­tor, the other is an ex­ter­nal power sup­ply which is sup­plied with the IN­T204 unit. This scheme al­lows to have the in­put and out­put sec­tions of the IN­T204 gal­van­i­cally isolated.

The sam­pling fre­quency is gen­er­ated with an in­ter­nal gen­er­a­tor in the IN­T204. This makes sure the trans­fer be­tween com­puter and D/A Con­verter is low jitter.

Dig­i­tal Input
A USB type B con­nec­tor is used a con­nec­tion to the computer.

Dig­i­tal Outputs
There are one XLR socket, one BNC socket and one RCA socket. BNC and RCA sock­ets are dri­ven by the same dri­ver chip.

Front panel controls
There are eight LEDs for sam­pling fre­quency dis­play and power sta­tus. A switch al­lows to se­lect the sam­pling fre­quency when do­ing DSD to PCM con­ver­sion (176.4 or 88.2 kHz). An­other switch se­lects the word-length when do­ing DSD to PCM con­ver­sion (24 or 16 Bit). A power switch han­dles the power on/off for the ex­ter­nal power sup­ply input.

Back panel el­e­ments from left to right
There is a power in­let for the ex­ter­nal power sup­ply, the USB con­nec­tor, the three out­put con­nec­tors (BNC, RCA, XLR).

Soft­ware features
The IN­T204 can do DSD to PCM con­ver­sion at se­lec­table sam­pling fre­quen­cies and word-length (88.2 or 176.4 kHz and 16 or 24 Bit). The DSD in­put is in the DoP for­mat with a sam­pling fre­quency of DS­D64 (2.8224 MHz).
